Iron Backpacks Mod
Iron Backpacks Mod 1.10.2/1.7.10 copes with portable storage and item manipulation through tiered backpacks and a system of modular upgrades in the game.
This mod offers tiered backpacks (Basic, Iron, Gold, and Diamond), each of which can be upgraded from the previous tier to offer more storage room together with more upgrade points. Higher tiers (i.e. Iron and above) ask for a specialization, either maximizing the upgrade points or the raw storage space.
Upgrade points can be used to apply a number of upgrades (over 20 distinctive ones) to the backpack to improve its functionality. Specific information about every upgrade can be found in the sidebar. Every backpack can be equipped, making it render on the player.
To get started in this mod you will need to craft a ‘Basic Backpack’. This asks for 8 leather and a chest:
You currently have a backpack! Pressing shift when hovering over it will display additional information:
Both of these tooltips pertain to upgrade information. We’ll get back to them in a minute. At the moment, let’s open the backpack, basically by right clicking it:
Here you can see a normal inventory to store items, just as a chest. Nothing unusual here. What is unique is the capability to shift-right click to open the alternate inventory of the backpack.
The button upgrade offers 4 buttons to the main inventory.
- - Sort all items in the backpack. By default it sorts by item ID (ascending), but you can right click the button to toggle the sorting method to alphabetized, localized item names.
- - Moves all items from your inventory (the 3 rows above your hotbar) to the backpack.
- - Moves all items from your hotbar to the backpack.
- - Moves all items from the backpack to your inventory.
The upgrade at the same time offers buttons to the configurable inventory that basically permit you to clear the items in every row with a single click.
Note: All of the buttons have tooltips in-game if you are ever confused. The delay for them to appear is 1 second by default, but it can be configured to anything you want.
The compression upgrades craft items when they are picked up by your backpack.
- The compression upgrade crafts items in a 3 by 3 grid. For instance, if redstone is specified in the filter it will make a great effort to turn into redstone blocks when 9 or more are picked up.
- The tyni compression upgrade crafts items in a 2 by 2 grid. For instance, if sand is specified in the filter it will make a great effort to turn into sandstone when 4 ore more are picked up.
- The decompression upgrade crafts items by itself. For instance, if a redstone block is specified in the filter it will make a great effort to turn into 9 redstone when picked up.
- Eternity upgrade will permit you to remain your backpack and its contents if you die with it. This is a wonderful way to be sure your that items are securely with you even in death but it only operates one time per upgrade. So you’ll need to create a new one after each death.
- Nesting upgrade permits you to store backpacks within backpacks. So you’ll importantly be able to make a ridiculously massive inventory capacity if you were to fill a pack entirely with other packs. If you like to hold on to your items then this upgrade is a must.
