Basic Backpack[edit]

Woven Backpack[edit]


It is possible to assign additional items to the Backpacks by modifying the Forestry configuration files. Locate your Forestry configuration folder and edit the file "Backpack.conf" with the Item IDs of your choosing

This is especially important for the Adventurer's Backpack

Note: that the config files should be in sync between the client and the server in SMP


  • Basic Backpacks hold up to 15 stacks of Items
  • Woven Backpacks hold up to 45 stacks of Items
  • Basic Backpacks may be upgraded into Woven Backpacks using a Carpenter
  • Forestry Backpacks will only pick-up drops, this may cause some inconveniences when mining with a Wand of Equal Trade or other tools that directly insert into the player's inventory. A work around is to manually drop stacks of items for the Backpack to pick-up
