BackpacksRemastered adds -- well -- backpacks, to Minecraft, the catch being without the use of any client-side modifications. Completely vanilla backpacks! This plugin was the first of its kind due to the fact that it adds backpacks as an ItemStack that will persist its inventory even without the plugin installed! Backpacks also allows you to inspect the NBT data of items which is handy for getting an under-the-hood look at how the game works.


  • Large version compatibility - Adaptable NMS solution currently supporting back to MC1.12 via a single plugin jar. Even if a version isn't explicitly stated as being supported, give it a try. It may still work.
  • NBT Data Storage - Backpack data is stored in that item's NBT data (the same way Minecraft stores data about enchantments). This means you don't have to worry about databases, configs, or anything like that. You can even backup the world and all of the backpack's contents will be backed up with it.
  • Fully functioning backpack item - Backpacks from this plugin are just like backpacks from a mod. They can be traded, destroyed, cloned, etc.
  • Different backpack types - This plugin introduces many different backpack types that extend far beyond just simply storage. Check them out under the crafting section of this page.
  • Highly customizable - Almost every aspect of the backpacks is customizable, including the crafting recipe! So if you don't like the default recipes, change them to something you do.
  • Multilingual support - Backpacks uses a proprietary automatic translation system known as i18nExtractor in its build chain. This means that you can automatically translate Backpacks into ANY language supported by Google Translate. See the GitHub about building Backpacks in your language.

You can view the configuration file here.


Backpack recipes, names, lore, etc. may be customized via the configuration. Below are the defaults:

Key - Used to open the backpacks.

Small - Smallest of the backpacks. Size of normal chest.

Large - A pretty dang large backpack. Size of double chest.

Linked - A backpack capable of interfacing with many different types of containers: chest, double chests, furnaces, etc. It works at any distance, even across dimensions. It is the ultimate backpack. To link it, hold it in your hand and left-click the desired container.

Combined - A backpack which can store multiple backpacks for quick use.

To add, place the combined backpack along with the to-be-inserted bag in a crafting grid.

To remove, see: /bp split.

Craft - A crafting table in a backpack.

Ender - An enderchest in a backpack.

Furnace - A first of its kind portable furnace.


Backpacks exist as chestplate items, however, they may be combined in a crafting grid w/ any item that can be equipped in this slot. To open, right-click with a backpack key in your hand.

Backpacks may be removed from their combined item using the /bp split command.

The installation is literally just drag and drop, so if you are used to installing plugins, you shouldn't have to read this next part.

  1. Locate your "plugins" folder which is located in your servers home folder.
  2. Drop the downloaded .jar file into the plugins folder.
  3. Run the server once to complete the installation!
  4. NOTE: Backpacks will create some files. Do NOT delete or modify these files unless you know what you are doing. You could mess up someones backpack.


NOTE: This tutorial is of a much older version of backpacks. ITS NOT EVEN REMOTELY THE SAME.


Known Bugs

See the open issues here for a list of known bugs.


10-19-2022: I changed the project name from Backpacks -> BackpacksRemastered because bukkit had a bug where I couldn't update the project settings for the longest due to conflicting legacy projects by the same name (you used to be able to do that). Anyhow, its better this way.
