Backpacks Mod for Minecraft 1.8.8/1.8/1.7.10


Have you ever been out mining, cutting wood or killing monsters in Minecraft and run out of inventory space? It happens to everyone who plays the game, sooner or later, and it’s one of the most frustrating experiences Minecraft has to offer. The Backpacks mod does away with this problem by allowing players to craft and carry backpacks, each of which has as much room as the player’s inventory, or even more! This significantly increases the player’s carrying capacity, from 27 items or stacks of items to a whopping 27×27, seeing as every inventory slot could theoretically contain a backpack. That’s 729 slots!







There are specialty backpacks as well. Some use an alternate form of leather to make backpacks with up to 54 slots. You can even craft an Ender backpack, using an enderchest, to have a link back to your enderchest at home which is much easier to carry around and use than the chest would be. The Backpacks mod is about more than just saving space – it allows players to do more with the space they have. By making Minecraft more efficient in general, this mod helps the game to run more smoothly and forces the player to go home after a good haul far less often.

  1. “Update in progress” :/ then this shouldn’t be listed as 1.8 mods!
    Lemme know when it’s updated please…

  2. Found a bug with the 1.8 version. If you change the colour of a bag while it has items inside the game crashes.

  3. 1.8 crashes when I try to use the “Big Backpack”. Small backpack works fine, with the exception of the “B” key not actually opening the pack. I have to equip it to a quick slot and use it, which limits me to only that many bags.

    Could be a really useful mod, if all the bugs are fixed.

  4. I haven’t had a single issue with this mod so far. You can wear the backpack by holding Shift+B to open interface. Place your bag in the slot at the top to wear it. Plus you can add items to it that you want the bag to auto store, for example: diamonds, ore, etc. You can also name your bags, similar to using a nametag item, by holding Shift and Right Clicking.

  5. Actually if ur using different mods you need to make sure that the controls are not being used. eg the shift b will not work if ur using mods with waypoints as b is the default setting for this. So far the bug that i see is the middle bags where it doesnt really show the actual look lol and cannot really see the bag in my back but those are minor. love this mod

  6. i just made a server ( invites only ) and i wanted to make a backpack but when i am in the crafting table and put the cow hides on the right places i see backpacks but when i try to pick it up out of the crafting table he put it back in O.o ??? someone help

  7. I ve got a problem.I made a crafting bagpack and i cant put my items which i craft in there in my inventory and also not in my crafting bagpack! How can i do it? pls help me

  8. wont stop crashing with the shift-b and wont work cratable yes but anything else and the game crashes i love this mod but please FIX IT!

  9. I installed the mod in 1.8.8 and every time I tried to open a backpack and my game crashed 🙁 I think this is a bug

  10. My game also crashes when I try to open the bag. If anyone has a fix, that’d be gr9! this seems like a really cool mod

  11. Mine worked for a while then ,for apparently for no reason, every time I tried to open the backpack my game would crash. This is a really cool mod, please fix?

  12. This is a great mod, and it is working perfectly for me. I really love it. I no longer use the crafting backpack, though. The built-in crafting table replaces much of the storage capacity, whereas I would have preferred it to be *added* in stead. So I simply use FZ’s pocket crafting table or Botania’s Assembly Halo in stead 🙂 Still means juggling stuff around: one can’t have the pack open while crafting… :'(

    To those that claim it isn’t working – that they cannot put the backpack on – in the “Controls” config screen, find the key associated with “Open Backpack”. I’ve configured that to be ‘I’ on my system. If you hold shift, and press that key, the interface to put the backpack on will open. It’s really not that hard.

  13. Works great! BUT… HOW can I wear it on the back? the 3D model isnt working 🙁 it would look great :/
    Is it a bug or do I use it wrong?
