Backpack Mod – Minecraft 1.7.4, 1.6.4 and 1.6.2

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.

How to Install this Mod

  • Introduction
  • The Steps (1.6 and up)
  • The Steps (Windows)(Old-Fashioned Way)
  • The Steps (Mac)(Old-Fashioned Way)
  • The Steps for Forge and Modloader Mods (Old)
So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

If you need any additional support, just comment below, or on the post mentioned above! We will be glad to help out!

Here’s the steps to installing that mod you want, or how to install Forge, Modloader, :

  1. Close Minecraft. This is to ensure that the files will overwrite properly.
  2. Open up Windows Explorer.
  3. In the navigation bar, type “%AppData%”.
  4. Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)
  5. Open up a folder called “.minecraft”.
  6. Open up a folder called “bin”.
  7. Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
  8. Select open with.
  9. Open with WinRAR.
  10. Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
  12. Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.

That’s it! Have fun!

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

Hopefully that helped you out! If not, you could post it in the comments, and we will help you!

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!

      Hello! I just tried the backpack mod out, and worked fine for me. Be sure to have installed forge properly, and if you install forge through the links provided on this site, you won’t have to delete META-INF, as Forge modifies it so you don’t have to remove it.

      Anyways, after you are SURE you installed Forge, put the unextracted backpack mod into the mods folder. No, you don’t have to install this mod by placing it in the minecraft.jar folder.

      If you are still having problems installing this mod, or Forge, just use the “Contact” page at the very top right portion of this site, and I will get back to you with a modified Minecraft.jar file containing Forge and the Backpack Mod.

      Have a nice day :)

      Wait! Before you do something, may I put your attention to this line:
      {mod_ModLoaderMp [mod_ModLoaderMp] (1.3.2) Unloaded->Errored}

      ModloaderMP has been practically phased out in the recent 1.4 updates, so there is no need to install ModloaderMP. Just Force Update Minecraft, and install Forge and the Bakcpack mod only.

      Have a nice day, again :)
