What is Hot-Swappable Armor Mod
Have you ever met the problem when you start a new world is that you have to constantly switch between your elytra and protection IV diamond chestplate? If you ever do, Hot-Swappable Armor Mod will be the finest solution to this problem. The mod adds only one simple feature: the ability to right-click-equip armor even when you already have a piece of armor equipped in that slot. From now on, there is no need to go into your inventory just to switch your armor!
Here’s a GIF to prove just how simple it is:
Some use cases:
Obviously this feature is not limited merely to armor; things like elytra, pumpkins, skulls, basically anything that goes in your armor slots can be hot-swapped with the mod. It may also be useful in conjunction with other mods that add say jetpacks or armors that give you certain potion effects when equipped. Or how about switching between Frost Walker and Depth Strider boots?
There is also another area where the mod could be found useful is that in Survival Games/PvP type situations, where quick upgrading to newly found better armor is a common theme. This may be a good thing, may be considered cheating, but it’s pretty handy nonetheless.
