Backpacks 2.3.1

For all your backpack related needs.

  1. Apple Juice
    Backpacks can be installed much like any other mod; Simply drag your backpacks.pak file into your Starbound mod directory, and you should be good to go!
    (When upgrading to a newer version, remember to remove any old versions of this mod that may be laying around!)

    Backpack creation can be done anywhere. To make one, simply open your [C] menu and have 5 string, 10 fabric, and 15 tungsten at the ready.
    (Or you can craft it for free in /admin!)

    Once crafted, backpacks can be opened by holding the backpack, and activating it (Much like eating food). You may be scared when the bag disappears from your hand, but don't worry! The moment you close the interface, it'll pop right back into your inventory.
    Additionally, it's compatible with vanilla servers! Just make sure you don't pass the bag to anyone without the mod installed.

    The bag tab lets you access all your items, and is near identical to a regular storage container. Upgrades can provide additional 25 slot 'page' to the Backpack.
    (Food doesn't rot right now, however; enjoy it while you can!)

    The password tab lets you lock your bag, making it require a password to open.
    Be warned however, if you forget your password, you will not be able to recover your items.

    (The contents get encrypted; great for protecting your items from thieves, not so great if you forget the password yourself.)

    The settings tab is where all the fun happens! Here you can set the colour of your bag and rename it to whatever you'd like.
    The second settings page will bring you to the upgrade section. Here you can add additional 'pages' of items to the main bag.
    Colour of the bag is controlled by the RGB sliders, or by directly entering in a 0-255 value in the boxes.

    (16581375 colours to choose from!)



    If you encounter any bugs or issues with the mod, please let me know in the discussion section! Be sure to describe the issue in detail, and attach any logs if you can!
    (Bugs reported under the review section will be ignored.)

    An amazing update for an amazing mod by an amazing author who made an amazing mod with some amazing updates :D

    However, I dropped it into a volcano and never got it back. It gets 1 star for not being volcano-proof.

    Excellent implementation of the portable container. A stunning idea and perfectly worked out!

    The recipe for it doesn't exist so only admin commands and new chars can get those... But the idea is very clever and excellent.

    there is no kraft. both on races from mods, and on vanilla. in /admin it is available

    This is a very good mod, as far as the rot timer freezing you could make a freezer bag that would be harder to make, and would freeze your food's rot timer. Also, I'm not sure if this is a glitch or my stupidity, but I can't figure out how to upgrade the bag size. (I put in tungsten, nothing happens)

    This honestly deserves much more reviews and downloads than it has! This MULTIPLAYER COMPATIBLE INVENTORY EXPANDER is the ONE and ONLY of its kind!

    At it's current stage, 4/5. Should the planned features come in, I'm dead certain it'll get to 5/5.

    A couple of things I'd like to ask about while testing it out so far alone:

    - I've noticed my rot timers seem to freeze like fridge storage when I put food in the backpack. Is this intended? If it is, I GODDAMN LOVE IT.

    - As you've mentioned sorting as a planned feature, will it be compatible with mods like Food stack (the one that adds the little knife and fork that stacks food with averaged rot timers) ?

      Rot timer freezing isn't intended; items aren't stored the same as conventional objects, but I can look into it. Enjoy the portable fridge for now I suppose c:

      As for other mods, I don't really have plans for them at the moment.
