Nayla's Backpacks


Ever wanted a backpack with gold functionality? Maybe one that can automatically pick up certain items? Maybe one that can auto smelt items? Maybe one that can compress all that cobblestone? Now you can!



Iron Backpacks Redone deals with portable storage and item manipulation through tiered backpacks and a system of modular upgrades. This mod is a fork of a mod called V0id's Smart Backpacks and is essentially a bug fix / reskin of that mod to match the classic Iron Backpacks Mod.

Credit is due to where it is needed

Original Description:

Iron Backpacks deals with portable storage and item manipulation through tiered backpacks and a system of modular upgrades.  



This mod is functional, but not actively maintained.
1.12 doesn't have all the features of 1.10, but, barring a dupe bug, should be fully functional/error free. Use an anvil to apply upgrades in 1.12.
For 1.16+ it looks like Sophisticated Backpacks has most of the features of this mod, if you want an alternative.

Note: If anyone is interested in taking over porting/maintenance I'd love to connect - join my Discord channel and come chat :)
