[1.5.x / 1.6.x] Backpacks v. 1.28.37 SMP + SSP (updated 09.04.2014)

This is a rewrite of MigthyPorks Backpack Mod. Unfortunately he no longer supports this mod. But he put all his code to the net so others can resurrect it.

This is nearly a 100% rewrite of the old mod because the old code was extremely dirty and this is a version for Forge.

If you want to report a dupe bug please PM me. Don't post it in the thread.

All other bug reports go to the bugtracker now.

How to craft the backpacks:
Normal backpacks:

Colored backpacks:

Ender backpack (was Magic backpack before):

Workbench backpack:

Recolor backpacks:

Upgrading backpacks:

Bound leather:

Tanned leather:

How to use them:
Simple hold a backpack in your hand and right click to open it.

For the combined GUI sneak click on a block that has an inventory. You can than transfer items directly between the backpack and the other inventory.

You can put any backpack in a separate slot. You access the slot be sneaking and pressing the key to open a backpack (default 'B'). When wearing a backpack in this slot the backpack can be opened by pressing the 'B' key. You can change the key in your controls.
When you wear a backpack it will show a 3D Model on the back of the player.

If you want to rename a backpack sneak and right click. You can enter a new name then.

Special Config Options:

  • Q. Can you make a version for ModLoader?
    A. No. I think ModLoader is outdated and it is a lot more work to make a ModLoader version of a mod. But if someone has ModLoader experience and want to port this mod to ModLoader this person can write me a PM and I will give permission to port the mod to ModLoader.
  • Q. The backpacks are too huge can you make them smaller?
    A. You can change the size of the backpacks in the config
  • Q. Im playing on a server. When I try to craft a backpack I see the result but can't take it out of the crafting slot.
    A. Install the mod on the server too.
Here an image with all backpacks and the materials you need for them:

Thanks for the Forge compatibility. A very helpful mod.  One thought though is instead of calling them backpacks they could be satchels, bags or pouches. Backpack sounds a little modern. Thanks and great mod.
My only limitation is my lack of imagination.  I can't code but I can build Adventure Maps. :)

Big backpacks like double chests have to think about a good recipe for this (Eydamos)
Maybe like this: Screenshot? or instead of a chest, the normal backpack :D

Beeeeeeeeeeep :P

Got the following error.

I managed to replicate the error:

1. Opened backpack
2. Moved something into backpack (backpack not full)
3. Moved backpack out of the quick inventory bar (bar at the bottom)
4. Closed the backpack

GREAT !!!! Was really looking forward to this Posted Image THANKS A LOT !!

Just one thing ... can you please make it possible to use own textues (with higher resolutions) ? Would be awesome Posted Image !

Oh and BTW : Minecraft crashes if you move the backpack around in you inventory while it is opened and then try to close it ;)

So, if you die when an ender backpack, you can just craft another and get your stuff back?
