Block Armor adds armor made from many blocks, including blocks from other mods! They have different stats and set effects when worn, and the armor textures support resource packs!



Additional Mods:

If other mods with blocks are added, there will be armor added for most of those blocks.


Armor Sets:

For each valid block, a full set of armor items (helmet, chestplate, leggings, and boots) will be added. Each item is crafted using the desired block in the shape the armor is normally crafted in, and can be repaired using that block as well.


Resource Packs:

The armor textures will change with the block texture when a resource pack is added.


Animated Textures:

Armor made from blocks with an animated texture will also have an animated texture.


Set Effects:

While wearing at least the number of pieces required for set effects (specified in config), certain armor sets gain special effects and bonuses!



1.16.5+: config is located in world/serverconfig/blockarmor-server.toml

You can easily choose to enable or disable any armor sets or set effects in the config. You can also change settings for the number of pieces required for set effects, whether or not set effects use durability, etc.
