Back Tools

Info

Currently for Minecraft 1.7.10

 

This mod adds a new aesthetic feature onto players.
Like its name it shows some tools on the back of the player. These tools are based on the last equipped tool that the player had.

Mainly inspired by multiplayer FPS games where you see unequipped items on the player. Disabled on players with capes/cloaks though :(

 

Screenshot examples:

 

Also includes additional Mod and SMP Support! If there’s a mod not supported you may request it!

 

(1.6 and later) Requires iChunUtil and Minecraft Forge.

(1.5 and earlier) Requires Risugami’s ModLoader. Compatible with Forge Mod Loader (FML) and Minecraft Forge!

Drop it into the mods folder like most other mods.

 

Note that this is a purely CLIENTSIDE mod. This CAN NOT be installed on a server.

 

Many thanks to shantomken for testing during the development process.

Known issues

  • Not compatible with Smart Moving and MineLittlePony.

Modders (Pre 1.6)

  • If your mod has tools that aren’t supported by this mod you may add it to the mod yourself via:-
  • mod_BackTools.addBackItem(Class cls, int orientation, boolean flipped);
  • mod_BackTools.addBackItem(int itemID, int orientation, int[] meta, boolean flipped);
  • class is the class the item is an instance of. orientation values, 0 – 3 (rotation counterclockwise by 90F * orientation). set meta to null if not meta specific. set flipped to true for vertical flipping of the texture.
  • Or… you could tell me the info required and I could add it on my end. (if itemID, please tell me the class and field instead) ;)

        Put the files into Minecraft.jar! Dont forget to backup, cause these mods modify your player stuff, and is you have mods that interfere wth your player installed, this makes it more likely you will end up with a black screen, which you will NOT be happy with if you don’t backup your minecraft.jar.

      I am having trouble with this mod, in multiplayer I can only have 1 hat, but I see mobs wearing other hats, how can I wear other hats? the hats menu is empty for me.

      • Psylink August 5, 2013 3:14 pm  Reply

        Kill the mobs with the hats, you should get their hat. Then you press either H or V (depending on the version), to select your unlocked hats! Simple!

    Hallo there, this is a fantastic mod, and I really love it. However, I recently became interested in the smart moving mod, and I noticed that smart moving did not work well with this mod, namely the tools remaining upright when my body was horizontal, ahah. I was wondering, if you had some spare time, could you consider creating a smart-moving compatible version of this mod? I completely understand if time restraints etc would make this difficult, but if you could reply with your answer it would be greatly appreciated :) Good day!

      All right, I tried to put the .dat file in the mods folders, and it works. Sorry for that complain.

      Just a suggestion : I used a tool, then entirely cleared my inventory, and that tool still shows on my back. Is it wanted, or will you change this in a future release ?

      I think the mod was simply for the intention. Tools on your back. I don’t think he would add a new feature simply because people don’t like something that happened. Plus, it would be a pain in the butt to code.
