Modular Powersuits is a mod that adds powered armor and tool. This armor can be modified by using different modules which add special abilities, with the tradeoff that some items also add weight to the powersuit. If the player's equipped armor totals more than 25 kg then extra weight above that slows down movement speed, making it harder to run or even impossible to swim against a water current.
One of the biggest perks of modifying your power suit are the utilities, such as breathing underwater, running faster, and flying. By current default a server which uses the YogCraft Modpack does not allow flying and must be edited to enable. It is advised to be well stocked up on redstone, iron, and ender pearls before you start modifying your armor as a LOT of these materials will be needed. This mod does not only take a lot of resources, but it is very time consuming. If planning to do this mod, it will take an estimated 2-4 for complete construction of your power suit.
Modular Powersuits is compatible with IndustrialCraft2, GregTech 4, Thermal Expansion, EnderIO, and the Ampz Pack. This mod has been around for while, and has been greatly expanded since it's initial release. The power suits used to only be compatible with EU, however, it has been expanded and the power suit can now accept RF as well. The easiest way to charge your power suit is by using the EnderIO Capacitor Bank. If using this method, your power suit will charge almost instantly. Another way to keep your suit full of energy is by having energy storage devices in your inventory, as the power suit will take energy directly from the storage device. This can be best accomplished by having a Resonant Energy Cell or Resonant Flux Capacitor in your inventory. If done using this method, you can easily make your power suits batteries last 10 times as long without having to worry about your suit's heavy batteries weighing you down. This technically sounds like your cheating the mod by having an external energy storage, and it is, but as the wise Douglas MacArthur once said, "Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind."
Pressing 'K' (by default) will open up the key configurations menu for this mod.
Note that in the Ultimate Pack, both the "Vanilla" and GregTech recipes are enabled, meaning that you can use either the expensive GregTech recipe or the cheaper (albeit iron- and redstone-hungry) alternatives.
In the 1.5 packs (Unleashed, Unhinged and Direwolf20) the power system is changed and new functionality is added.
The power indicator is now a vertical bar on the right side of the screen, to the left of the new heat bar. The heat bar will fill up with the use of modules, some modules filling it up more than others. If the correct modulus are installed, there will 3 bars on the right side of the screen: The power bar to the left, the water tank in the middle, and the heat bar to the right. The heat will slowly dissipate, however, if you do not have any cooling systems installed the suit will constantly overheat. A way to counteract this is by simply installing the normal Cooling System the Liquid Nitrogen Cooling system, and the Water Tank(Your best bet for the Water Tank is to have it activate at 75% heat). If the heat exceeds the bar(the bar holds 100 heat) then the player is set on fire. While water will cool the player down faster, it will not extinguish the fire, also if the player is killed by it then a custom death message is shown. There is glitch with this mod, sometimes out of nowhere your heat will jump to about 900 for no reason at all. When this happens, this process will inevitably lead to your death. The only way to somewhat prevent this glitch is to keep the water tank on the suit full, and put all of the cooling systems on your suit. This way, if the glitch does occur, then it won't kill you(usually)as long as you can get to a pool of water fast enough.
Modules such as the Custom Color Module have been removed and instead the player may press L by default to open up the cosmetic config. Here the player can edit a 3d model of the powersuit with custom colors and the ability to add/remove parts of it. When editing the color, there are three options: The darker chestplate texture is invisible, the plain white one is visible, and the white chestplate with the blue dot is visible, but is not affected by light and always stays fully bright. Good for making glowing parts such as crystals. And don't forget it can be destroyed like other armor, unlike the Quantum Suit.
