This mod is not maintained any more

I don't have the time or passion to work on backpacks and I also don't play Minecraft any more. Loading times have increased more and more over the years and having to wait 15 minutes just to start a game is no fun at all.

There are some other great backpack mods out there so please give one of them a try.

If I would ever start playing Minecraft again I might continue this project and bring out a new version for the Minecraft version that is out then but I will not fix any bugs in the old versions.


[1.12.2] Backpacks

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 forum thread or the issue tracker.

Recipes until 1.7

Recipes since 1.8


How to use them:

Simple hold a backpack in your hand and right click to open it.

You can put any backpack in your personal backpack slot. Per default press sneak and B to open the GUI.
A backpack equipped in your personal slot can be opened by pressing the 'B' key. You can change the key in your controls.

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



Q: I can't open my backpack

A: You need to craft the backpack. Backpacks determine the size of their inventory from the materials used to craft them. So if you cheat them in they don't know the materials and can not determine their size, which is the cause of them not opening.
