Adding Items To Backpacks

If you want to configure the items a backpack holds, go into the config folder located in config/redgear/morebackpacks. Inside you'll find a series of .json files for each backpack. Open the one you want to edit with a text editor. There are only two values in these files.

  • The first value; backpackKey, is the name of the backpack.
  • The second value; items, is a list of approved items using the new 1.7 item registration system. You can find the values for these in the fml-client logs.
    • The syntax for these entries is "modId:itemName@meta" where "@meta" is optional and leaving it empty will allow any meta value. Save and restart minecraft to see your changes effects. Deleting one of these files will replace it with the default.

What Happens when two backpacks hold the same thing?

Forestry already handles this, since it is possible to have two of the same backpack. What happens is first it will look at your hot bar, and fill any backpacks from left to right. So if your hot bar has a miners and a redstone backpack, it will put any redstone into the left-most. If your hot bar has no backpack space, it will go to the top row of your inventory and fill from left to right, and then down to the next row and so on.

Hopefully this picture will help make it clearer.
