What is Backport Mod
Backport Mod is believed to be a good solution to deal with the problem of missing good mods that bring newer features to older versions of Minecraft, especially Shulker Boxes. The mod will try to work as closely as possible to the original, down to the last possible detail.
Main features currently:
- Shulker Boxes
- Complete animations
- Full inventory functionality
- Fully dyeable
- Adds Shulker Shells and makes them drop from Shulkers, just like in 1.11 (down to the drop rates)
- Glazed Terracotta
- Proper rotation for all variants
- Concrete/Concrete Powder
- Full functionality in all aspects
- Full functionality (mostly)
- Other small features:
- Magma blocks burn infinitely (suggested by RyanKoopa)
- Smelting down armor/additional fuel items
- All of the above features can be enabled/disabled using the config file.
- Elytra firework boosting
- 1.12 Note Block sounds
- Totem of Undying? (would need work on obtaining, as Woodland Mansions don’t exist)
- Gamerules doWeatherCycle (definitely)/maxEntityCramming (maybe)
- Additional spawn eggs from 1.11
- Creative toolbar saving?
- Dyeable beds? (highly unlikely, but possible)
- Any really good suggestions
- Changes to shield damage absorption (suggested by Frantiq)
- Sweeping Edge/Curse of Binding/Curse of Vanishing (suggested by MinerRuler)
At the moment, the mod is only available for Minecraft 1.10, however; newer version has been worked on and will be implemented soon. By the way, the mod’s content is limited to blocks/items so there will be no big features like Woodland Mansions or mobs.
Wish you have a good time with the mod. Enjoy!
