Backpack help


Recommended Posts

So, I've been trying to make a backpack...

How would you make a backpack, exactly? I want it so that if you pick up an item that's in the backpack, it'll get sucked into the backpack. Is there a way to check what item you picked up, then move it into the backpack?

Also, would there be a way to make it auto-craft when it gets in there? Like, if I had an item in there that says "If you can, use items to craft this!"?


Sincerely, Wub

You need to start somewhere else.  All of those things are fairly advanced operations.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.


Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.


DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

You can start by creating an item that stores an inventory.


Then you can subscribe to the Forge ItemPickupEvent, check if your player has your backpack item, and store the item in there instead of the regular inventory.


For crafting, you'd probably have to implement that in the Item class onUpdate method for your Backpack Item, checking its inventory every now and again to see if there is anything it can craft.
