Sophisticated backpacks is yet another backpack mod this time with backpack you can place in world, color in different color combinations, upgrade with more inventory and enhance with many functional upgrades.

Backpack in its item form

  • Can be accessed using a key press (by default B)
  • Renders on player when put in their chest slot
  • Curios compatibility makes it possible to wear and render the backpack when put in “Back” slot

Backpack can also be placed in world

  • Shift right clicking the backpack on the ground puts it down
  • When in world player can use it the same way they would use a chest
  • Backpacks can also have items piped in/out using hoppers or any kind of modded pipes, external storage access, …
  • Shift right clicking the backpack on the ground with empty hand picks it back up or it can also be brokend and picked up as any other item

Backpacks can be upgraded

  • 5 tiers - leather, iron, gold, diamond, netherite
  • Each of the tiers adds more storage slots and more upgrade slots

Loot / Mob Spawning

  • Occasionally backpacks and some upgrades can be found in loot chests
  • And even though rare, mobs can also spawn with backpacks on them sometimes with a bit of loot in those and sometimes they would even play a tune

Configuration

There is a lot of things you can change through mod's config

  • Number of inventory and upgrade slots of each backpack tier
  • Number of filter slots in many of the upgrades
  • Range, speed and some additional features of different upgrades
  • And if an backpack/upgrade doesn't fit a theme of your modpack you can disable them in the config to disable recipes and hide them from creative menu / jei

Backpacks can be combined with dyes to get them in many different color combinations. 

Dyeing the backpack in crafting table

  • Color of multiple dyes in recipe gets combined similar to how it works for coloring leather armor except backpack can have two colors - main and accent
  • Dyes to the left of the backpack in the recipe apply to the main color
  • Dyes to the right apply to the accent color of the backpack
  • Dyes in the same column apply to both
  • And once dyed you can continue adding dyes which combine with the current main color, accent color or both
  • So yes there are many color combinations
  • Color of already dyed backpack can be washed away by clicking it on cauldron with water

Picks up items that match the filter directly into the backpack

  • Regular upgrade can only filter by item and has 9 filter slots
  • Advanced one has more filtering options - match by item/mod/tags, match nbt, match damage and 16 slots that can be used to filter

Filter Upgrade

Can be used to limit what can be piped into / out of backpack

  • Its primary use is for a backpack that is placed in the world and connected to hoppers / pipes
  • But it can also be used on backpacks in backpack (inception upgrade required) to limit what can be inserted taken out of them by upgrades in the main backpack (like magnet inserting items into them)

  • Advanced one has more filtering options - match by item/mod/tags, match nbt, match damage and 16 slots that can be used to filter
  • There's also an option to turn on off voiding of items that are inserted through backpack gui, like if you want to add a stack of some item and keep it there, but don't want any new ones to be inserted

 

Compacting Upgrade

Compacts items using 2x2 and 3x3 recipes, usually coal, redstone and similar

  • Regular upgrade only has 9 filter slots and can only compact items using 2x2 recipes
  • Advanced one has 16 slots and can compact items using both 2x2 and 3x3 recipes
  • There's also a switch for whether to have items compacted only when inserted by other upgrades/pipes or whether the compacting should also happen when inserting the items in backpack's gui
  • And another switch that allows to compact also items which cannot be uncompacted back (by default will only compact those that can be uncrafted)

 

Feeding upgrade

Feeds player with food from backpack when the player gets hungry

  • Has filters to allow limiting what food items should be fed to player (pretty useful in case you're picking up stuff like rotten flesh and similar with negative effects)

  • Immune to any kind of prickly thing like cactus
  • Immune to Lava / Fire damage
  • Doesn't despawn when it exists as an item in the world
  • When it falls in lava will float up above it and stay there
  • Same happens when it falls in void except it stays just above the lowest build limit

  • Multiplies the max stack size limit by a value
  • Tier 1 - 2x, tier 2 - 4x, tier 3 - 8x, tier 4 - 16x
  • Multiple stack upgrades can be put in upgrade slots and their multipliers get multiplied :)
  • e.g. 2 tier 2 upgrades = 16x max stack size value

  • To move as much as possible you can use Ctrl Shift Click
