Backpack Mod – Ever wanted to increase her inventory space without having to take up space in your house in Minecraft? Then this mod is for you!
Overview of this Mod
The backpack mod is a mod for Minecraft that allows you to carry a backpack in your inventory. The backpack is essentially a portable chest in that it can carry everything besides another backpack. unfortunately, it’s capacity is about the same as a regular chest, and not that of a double chest. however, if you have three backpacks in your inventory, you are essentially quadrupling the amount of items you can carry with you. The crafting recipe is as follows:
If you ask me, the crafting recipe is fairly balanced, and obtaining the materials required craft it isn’t all that hard. However, I highly doubt the cows will really like that. in addition, you can also change the color of your backpack by adding a died in the middle while you’re crafting backpack. On top of that you can even create the “magic backpack” which will allow you to share your items if you have another magic backpack. Basically, if you put an item in the magic backpack, it will store the item virtually, and even if you lose all the magic backpacks, you can just craft another one and your stuff will still be safe. This is fairly useful for storing valuable items, and sharing items with your friends if you decide to run this mod on the server. Crafting recipe is fairly expensive though, in that it requires one diamond in the middle while you are crafting the backpack. I guess it’s fairly balanced, considering that you won’t lose any of your items that you store inside of it.
All in all, this mod is a really good mod for the Minecraft player that likes to go on adventures and mining, and their inventory keeps constantly getting filled. Now for some screenshots of the mod.
