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.

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


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

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. located here: PlusVerion

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:

Standard Version:

Grass pouch- +2 slots EA. 8 total.

Basket- +3 slots EA. 12 total.

Hunter backpack- +4 slots EA. 16 total.

Linen sack- +5 slots EA. 20 total.

Mining bag- +12 slots EA. 48 total. (Mining limited)

Backpack- +6 slots EA. 24 total.

Bronze reinforced backpack- +8 slots EA. 32 total.

Iron reinforced backpack- +10 slots EA. 40 total.

Steel reinforced backpack- +12 slots EA. 48 total.

Temporal rift- +18 slots EA. 72 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) 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.

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 otherwise nothing will show up on your back, seems to be some issue with the base game.

Mr1k3 I have reinstalled the older version, emptied my backpacks, and reinstalled the latest version with the same results. In the end, I threw the odd packs in a box and briefly entered creative mode to grab a few new backpacks. I'll check on those in the future should you update your mod while I'm still in this play-through.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully no one else is having this problem, but I suppose the simple fix is just to spawn in new ones from creative.

Abed  thats really strange, I checked the other versions and I never went live with the "backpackpackhardcore" mod id, the mod db wont even let you upload diffrent mod id's under the same post. somehow that experimental version got out there. anyways to fix it you could just use the previous version you had and take all your items out of the packs before updating then you'd need to spawn the new id backpacks in, or you could go into the modinfo.json and change the line 9 "ModID" from "backpackpack" to "backpackpackhardcore" as a temporary fix, only issue is if you keep running with that version it would still be incompatable with servers/new versions, until you do the whole take items out, change version then spawn in new packs. let me know if you need any more help.

The update broke my backpacks

Thanks for the heads up, had two tabs with each version up and tried to upload the difrrent zips at the same time, it even showed up in the files so it must be a quirk with the moddb.

You, uh, appear to have not uploaded the actual file for 1.01 standard. Just as a heads up
