BackpackPack is a mod intended to be a successor to "QOL Tweaks- BetterBackpacks", it is designed to fill in gaps in the backpack progression and even drastically increase the base games backpack capacity with the plus version. It replaces all of vanillas backpack recipes with improved versions and adds some early and late game backpack progression.

Heres my patreon if you'd like to support me: Patreon

This mod has two versions- "BackpackPack" and "BackpackPackPlus"


The normal version keeps the storage capacity of vanilla backpacks and keeps the newly added backpacks in line with those numbers. Located here: StandardVersion

The second, or "Plus" version uses numbers similar to the original "QOL Tweaks- Betterbackpacks" mod meaning backpacks give you much more storage that is about double of the base games numbers.

Use the normal version if you like vanilla storage numbers, and use plus if you like huge inventory sizes.


Backpack Progression:

(Quantity slot amounts are shown as PLUS version, N/A to standard version)


Grass pouch:


Very early game solution, niche use when you cant find enough cattails, has recipe to reclaim ingredients.



Slightly more expensive, has recipe to reclaim all cattails minus rope.

Hunter backpack:


Uses raw hides now, can now use 2 small raw hides as well. Easier to create now so its competitive with linen sack.

Linen sack:


Slight cost increase, can reclaim 4 twine back with recipe.

Mining bag:


Same changes as linen sack for consistency, can reclaim plates with recipe.



Slight increase in cost, can reclaim 8 leather used.

Reinforced Backpacks-



Can reclaim plates.



Can reclaim plates.



Can reclaim plates.

Temporal rift:


Can't upload any more images but that purple thing has a recipe and uses a temporal gear and diamond.


Storage Numbers:



Plus Verison:

Grass pouch- +3 slots EA. 12 total.

Basket- +4 slots EA. 16 total.

Hunter backpack- +6 slots EA. 24 total.

Linen sack- +9 slots EA. 36 total.

Mining bag- +18 slots EA. 72 total. (Mining limited)

Backpack- +12 slots EA. 48 total.

Bronze reinforced backpack- +14 slots EA. 56 total.

Iron reinforced backpack- +16 slots EA. 64 total.

Steel reinforced backpack- +18 slots EA. 72 total.

Temporal rift- +24 slots EA. 96 total


Mod is usable on existing worlds, however backpacks existing before the mod was installed and across the two versions will need to be replaced (by re-crafting or spawning them in), or re-mapped if you know how to do that, to have their storage numbers be updated.

The two versions are exclusive to each other, as they have different mod id's so if you load a world that had the standard version with the plus version the other versions items will simply cease to function, but the currently loaded version will work fine, you may want to refund the cost of the items though if you make the switch intentionally. You wont loose the items from mistakenly loading the wrong mod though, just load back up the version you had when you made the items and they will function as normal and items inside the packs will return.

Character backpack graphics (as in being shown on the back) seems to be buggy for some reason, if you want your backpack to show on your back you will have to re-log ore wait a while otherwise nothing will show up on your back, seems to be some issue with the base game.

Would be nice to have dyed cloth as ingredient for the metal reinforced backpacks - blue (woad) cloth for bronze, black (double rust) for iron, red (crushed cinnabar) for steel.

everything worked fine until leather backpack, can't get it to craft.  is it for working for others? v1.18.15 Stable

💬 Ailith, Dec 23rd 2023 at 10:38 AM

1.19.0-rc.1 working

💬 Mendall, Sep 14th 2023 at 7:35 PM

@Zinloz yes I know how amazing the mod is I have used it for ages, but I'm trying to maybe update to 1.18.10 but don't dare until I make sure all my must-have mods will work with net 7

so you may

see that question a lot in the comments, as I have 60 plus mods to verify.

💬 Zinloz, Sep 12th 2023 at 10:22 PM

Mendall it does, highly recommend. The 24 slot bags are game changing.

💬 Mendall, Sep 12th 2023 at 6:16 PM

Anyone know if this mod still works in 1.18.10


💬 AzuliBluespots, Apr 27th 2023 at 11:59 AM

Seems to work fine on 1.18, I still need to try and CRAFT one, but the slot count and functionality seems intact.

Also, pt-br translation on crowdin is complete.

Works without issues on 1.17.11, in case anyone needs a confirmation for 1.17.x.

No clue about 1.18, but chances are it works anyway. I don't have InventoryTweaks, so I didn't have any issues. Had to re-craft my leather bags, though.

The other mod variant probably works as well, since it's basically the exact same thing except the inventory sizes are smaller.

💬 Mendall, Oct 1st 2022 at 10:44 PM

This is working with 1.17.4 but I had to turn off inventory tweeks because of a conflict that crashed me every time I touched an item in bottom leather backpack

💬 Mr1k3Author, Sep 2nd 2022 at 3:07 AM

Is working on 1.17. An update is planned.

💬 SalazarWindriver, May 1st 2022 at 2:10 AM

Is there a way to change the inventory screen with these packs?  When the space gets larger than the window, scrolling for inventory prevents being able to scroll the hot bar

💬 Mr1k3Author, Jan 23rd 2022 at 3:59 AM


  • removed some useless patches that caused error log messages
  • added mod icons
  • temporal tinkerer now has compatibility tweaks with this mod, with temporal tinkerer installed alongside one of these mods the recipes for the black hole backpack and core now uses parts from temporal tinkerer in the recipes, the patch is all handled on the temporal tinkerer side though so only that needs to be updated to get these changes, but you'd miss out on the new pretty mod icons.
💬 Feroxious, Jan 6th 2022 at 2:55 PM

needs to be updated to 1.16 because we are not able to craft leather backpack 

💬 BlueFuryDragon, Nov 21st 2021 at 10:49 PM

Does this work with 1.15.9?

💬 Mr1k3Author, Oct 20th 2021 at 1:00 AM


-added ability to place down bags on the ground like in vanilla (thank you Craluminum2413 for the heads up)

-removed rope requirement from baskets

-can now reclaim 2 small hides from hunter backpacks

💬 Gazelutza, Sep 5th 2021 at 4:52 AM
