A circular progress bar will be visible around your cursor as you wait.
You can only pick up certain supported blocks, such as baskets, chests, barrels, vessels (including broken ones), anvils, ...

To put a block onto your back, sneak and hold right click without aiming at a block.

not working on 1.18.5

💬 NerdScurvy, Oct 30th 2022 at 3:41 AM

I've started maintaining the mod under a new name Carry On

💬 AzuliBluespots, Oct 25th 2022 at 11:35 AM

This mod still works perfectly, only people who want to use player corpse with it have an issue. For other compatibility purposes and since I don't drop items, I'll keep using this until it's incompatible with the game.

💬 WickedSchnitzel, Oct 17th 2022 at 9:00 PM

This mod wont get an update from CopyGirl anymore. But anyone may update it, if they know code. Its open source.

💬 Heebeejeebees, Oct 12th 2022 at 5:44 AM

So we have a wee problem with this mod. People in Player Corpse are saying the mod isn't working, and I am afraid that this mod has something to do with it. Me and a friend tested this in a new world, and that's our working theory thus far why Player Corpse isn't working in a multiplayer session.

Funny thing is… it works for me. But only if nobody else joins. There's something distinctly messed up about this mod to cause failure of Player Corpse when a player joins.

💬 SpearAndFang, Oct 4th 2022 at 2:21 PM

Still working for me in 1.17.5.  And just for fun I tested it aok in 1.17.6 as well.  Maybe you forgot to empty your offhand first?

💬 LoneWolfREM, Oct 4th 2022 at 8:43 AM

Not working with 1.17.5 so far.

💬 l33tmaan, Oct 3rd 2022 at 7:46 PM

It still works in 1.17.3.

💬 EBK, Sep 29th 2022 at 5:22 PM

I'm not able to get it to work either. All I need to do is put the .zip file in the mod folder correct?

💬 Rhyagelle, Sep 10th 2022 at 9:48 PM

Truly the most essential mod for VS. I know you're taking a break, just wanted to say thanks for creating the mod for us, no matter how it ends up. It's truly superb. 

💬 actuallyasriel, Sep 10th 2022 at 11:05 AM

TacoDuke I've had no problems using the latest version on 1.17 myself!

💬 TacoDuke, Sep 10th 2022 at 9:19 AM

Can we please get an update to 1.17? After I tried this mod I cant live without it, its so amazing!

💬 Rheara, Sep 7th 2022 at 6:52 AM

An absolutely indispensable mod!

💬 MagentaLizard, Sep 5th 2022 at 6:54 PM

@SIN1K Oh ok thanks

💬 SIN1K, Sep 5th 2022 at 12:53 AM

Hey MagentaLizard, seems to be working fine for me. I've been playing with it for a few hours with game version 1.17.2 (stable).

💬 MagentaLizard, Sep 4th 2022 at 5:24 AM

Will this work in 1.17.2?

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jul 21st 2022 at 8:04 AM

It is not surprising why this mod didn't work in 1.17.0-pre.4 and started to work again in 1.17.0-pre.5, unless you don't read 1.17 changelogs

💬 Kwegar, Jul 21st 2022 at 4:37 AM

You are correct, its working again in 1.17 pre 5.  WOOT

💬 Voidseeker, Jul 20th 2022 at 7:19 PM

Kwegar 1.17 pre 5, no crash for me, mod seems to work.

💬 Kwegar, Jul 15th 2022 at 12:26 AM

As of 1.17 pre 4 game crashes when this mod is enabled.  just letting you know.. as I love this mod.  

💬 daigoN, Jun 25th 2022 at 12:07 AM

Pretty neat mod but after a while it stops working unless I make a new world. I don't have any other mods installed so I don't know what's happening. Oh right, and I'm using the latest version.

💬 YourCreator, Jun 12th 2022 at 9:22 AM
💬 ManaWei, May 28th 2022 at 9:39 AM

When I start a game this Mod works fine.. but it stops working later on after a new load.. You got any fixes ?

💬 Zelascelar, May 16th 2022 at 11:11 AM

I find this mod a requirement and I really hope it becomes part of the core game, I love it and it works fine for me. To pick up container vessels without having to "breake" them just makes sense and works great to improve immersion.

💬 Rhyagelle, May 12th 2022 at 4:39 PM

Hey, thanks Rahjital! I did update to 1.16.5, but it doesn't seem to work. Maybe a conflict, then, or hopefully a big dummy moment from me and I can still use it with the other mods. lol

💬 TeacupAngel, May 12th 2022 at 10:34 AM


I just tried the mod on 1.16.5 and it worked well, I could carry chests in my hands and on my back without any issues. You might want to check if it's a conflict with another mod, or maybe try updating the game from 1.16.5-rc.1 to the latest 1.16.5 release :)

💬 Rhyagelle, May 12th 2022 at 1:01 AM

Hey, trying to get this to work on 1.16.5 RC-1, but it doesn't seem to work (doesn't allow chests or anything to be equipped to backs etc). Any chance for an update? Really love this mod, think its kinda crucial at this point. lol

💬 copygirlAuthor, Apr 23rd 2022 at 8:40 PM

Nuk_17 I'll be perfectly honest - I haven't had the time to test whether this is the case. Does this happen with only the CarryCapacity mod installed? Do you have something on your back? I would appreciate if someone took the time to create an issue on the GitHub issue tracker so, well .. I could keep track of it.

Luksor I actually responded to this on the forum already. Ideally, yes, this should be possible. But as trunks are "multi block", it would require hardcoding their pickup behavior or expanding on the API quite heavily. It's something I would like to address in a potential upcoming rewrite that will hopefully make it into the game itself. Unfortunately, things have gotten into the way of me being able to work on the game code, and I'm looking for a time when my motivation is going to allow me to get back into it.

Apologies for the slow responses. I don't check the notification here all too often.

💬 Luksor, Apr 13th 2022 at 1:17 PM

Any chance for ability to carry new double chests in near future?

💬 Nuk_17, Apr 3rd 2022 at 6:34 AM

I believe that the clay oven interactions might be conflicting with this mod, as I cannot put anything into the oven to heat or bake

💬 Vinter_Nacht, Apr 2nd 2022 at 5:24 PM

@NavieIV @Copygirl -> I am definitely eager to see both these things manifest.

💬 copygirlAuthor, Feb 27th 2022 at 4:58 PM

NarielV I might like that playstyle, too. The mod is being considered for addition into the main game. Once we actually get to replacing the current bag / backpack system with something more sensible (which could take some time), I can try to suggest this as an option.

💬 NarielV, Feb 2nd 2022 at 1:01 AM

By any chance, will you add an option for this to replace the backpack system, I like the idea of stopping to take inventory.

💬 copygirlAuthor, Dec 25th 2021 at 3:23 PM

DArkHekRoMaNT This is a late reply, but yes, I'm aware of the issue, but have been procrastinating on it, because the mod is in need of a rewrite.

💬 DArkHekRoMaNT, Oct 21st 2021 at 12:15 PM

Sometimes the slot on the hotbar in which you previously held the box begins to hide any items in it. It is only found with CC and most often occurs after you have taken damage and dropped the box. Fixes if you pick up any box again and put copygirl

💬 TheOddApe, Oct 19th 2021 at 6:28 PM

Hello. I don't understand what's wrong but the mod works only on multiplayer. On single player I can't pick up containers. Am I missing something? :)


I use a custom dataPath 'cause I play on different servers. Those mods are not loaded in single player. Now I put them also in vintagestory/Mods and everything works again 😄

💬 Roh, Oct 11th 2021 at 9:11 AM

copygirl Thank you, that was quick. I've reinstalled the updated mod, the error is gone and now it works perfectly!

💬 copygirlAuthor, Oct 11th 2021 at 8:15 AM

Roh Ah, I see. I think the developers changed something in the API that broke the mod. Pretty frustrating. I uploaded a new version of the mod which hopefully works.

(Or not... either way, I rebuilt the mod I suppose.)

💬 Roh, Oct 10th 2021 at 2:46 PM

Hi, I tried running the mod on 1.5.6 (stable release) and this is what I've got in the log:

10.10.2021 16:28:23 [Error] [carrycapacity] An exception was thrown when trying to start the mod:
System.MissingFieldException: Impossible to find the field 'Vintagestory.API.MathTools.ColorUtil.WhiteArgb'.
in CarryCapacity.Client.HudOverlayRenderer.UpdateCirceMesh(Single progress)
in CarryCapacity.CarrySystem.StartClientSide(ICoreClientAPI api)

10.10.2021 16:28:23 [Error] Failed to start system CarryCapacity.CarrySystem

Hoping it will be of any utility. Anyway, great mod! I love it.


💬 copygirlAuthor, Oct 10th 2021 at 7:10 AM

This mod should work fine in 1.15.6. The Aura Fury community of which I'm part of runs this mod on their large and pretty active server without problem. I will mark the latest version as compatible.

Maelstrom Thoth Please check your log files. Does the mod load? Are there any obvious errors or warnings popping up? Are you using the latest version?

Nathans_Gambit This is an older issue that's been floating around for some time and I believe doesn't have anything to do with CarryCapacity. Happens without CarryCapacity, too.

💬 JingShi, Oct 7th 2021 at 4:31 PM

Please update this mod to 1.15.6. 

💬 Nathans_Gambit, Sep 27th 2021 at 12:12 AM

The wife and I were using this on 1.15.6 I think it is. The newest update. And weird things were happening. Meat disappeared out of her carried basket and terra pretta at one point. Not all at once either just here and there. Where we were just chalking it up to user error. And then one of the baskets on the ground where we were storing bones in it, the bones disappeared at one point. Removed the mod and no more issues. The only other mod we have is the one that makes us have better toned skins. So yea while it wasnt anything super "important" that we lost we didnt want to take a chance on it being something important at some point. So I definitly say use at your own risk

💬 TeacupAngel, Sep 23rd 2021 at 9:54 PM

Strange, the latest version of CarryCapacity works just fine in my 1.15.5 world, haven't had any issues at all.

💬 Travisplo, Sep 23rd 2021 at 9:26 PM

I really hope this gets updated sometime. It would be very nice to have it in my 1.15.5 world.

💬 Thoth, Aug 26th 2021 at 6:25 PM

Seconding Maelstrom. Tested it without any other mods to make sure it wasn't a conflict and still produced buggy behavior. Verified hands empty and no items on back or anything and barrels/chests just open when clicked without any UI/tooltips for picking up.

💬 Maelstrom, Aug 24th 2021 at 10:51 PM

Mod seems to not work in 1.15.5.  Have two empty hands and containers open/close when attempting to pick them up.  Did I miss something?

💬 Intyalle, Aug 8th 2021 at 12:35 AM

Yeah, it's working again now. Might've been something wrong with the world.

💬 copygirlAuthor, Aug 7th 2021 at 4:25 PM

@Intyalle I've been able to play with 1.15.3 just fine, picking up baskets, chests, vessels, ... Is your off-hand slot empty?

💬 Intyalle, Aug 7th 2021 at 1:19 AM

Using 0.6.2 on 1.15.3 single player, unable to pick up my reed baskets (haven't tested anything else yet)

💬 Ptah, Jul 20th 2021 at 4:35 PM

If I was forced to only use one mod it would be this one :)

💬 Lyte, Jul 19th 2021 at 11:55 PM

This Mod.  This fantastically phenomenal MOD !!!  Thank you so much for making it!  Immersion +100 , Utility +100 !!!

💬 HappyMolly, Jul 18th 2021 at 7:05 AM

I love this mod, useful and intuitive controls.

💬 Breagle, Mar 22nd 2021 at 4:40 AM

I think this should really be in the base game. Thanks a bunch!

💬 Tels, Mar 21st 2021 at 11:56 AM

The most useful and still immersive mod. Thank you! Should IMHO really be part of the base game.

💬 IndioAzteca, Feb 28th 2021 at 1:31 AM

The required mod for this game imo. Thanks Copygirl!

💬 MrLobaker, Feb 15th 2021 at 4:42 PM

Very useful mod, thx =D
