Weight Limit minecraft mods 1.8.8 is not for the faint of heart, and is designed for those looking for a more hardcore feel to Minecraft. Starting off, it adds a new weight limit element to the player, along with a weight value to all items.
All weight is configurable through the ‘WeightLimit.json’ (WeightLimitServer.json when being used on a server) file, and syncs with all players when set from the server. When you are over encumbered (are carrying more than what you can), your player will be slowed, and you won’t be able to sprint. There are a lot of toggles in the ‘wl.config’ file, so give it a look!
There are three types of backpacks: Small, Medium, and Large. All three will increase the player’s max weight value by a certain percentage, which is also configurable in the config file for the mod. When wearing one of the backpacks, a custom model will be rendered on your player’s back:
You can craft the Small Backpack with some leather, sticks, and a chest:
The Medium, and Large backpacks can only be found in dungeon chests, or can be acquired by using the Upgrade Station (see below). Small Backpacks are about as rare as iron, Medium are as rare as diamonds, and Large are as rare as Golden Apples.
The Upgrade Station is used to upgrade backpacks into higher quality, more efficient ones. It is crafted with six Spruce Logs, one Crafting Table, one Glass Pane, and one Obsidian:
Once made, it will look quite inviting when placed:
Next, just open it, and you’ll be greeted with this screen:
Once there, simply follow these steps:
Step 1 Place a backpack in the first slot:
Step 2 Put the material, and amount required to upgrade the backpack into the second slot:
Step 3 Enjoy your new backpack! This can also be done on the Medium Backpack, and soon to be Large!
This mod also adds a custom inventory, which is accessed by pressing the ‘R’ key (changeable):
To the left of the inventory is your current weight over max weight. This indicates how much you’re carrying, and how much you can carry before being slowed down. The first, and only slot on the inventory is where your backpack will go. When placed in this slot, the backpack will upgrade your max carry weight by a certain amount; and render a model on your player’s back!
Weight of all items is stored within a json file that is created when your first load up your game with the mod. This file will load all blocks and items from the vanilla game, and any mods you have loaded with this one. The file can be located within the folder that the config would be, and can be changed to your liking. When running this mod from a server, the file will be called ‘WeightLimitServer.json’, and any values set in that file will be synced with the client.
NOTE: THE ONLY WAY FOR THE CLIENT TO BE SYNCED, IS IF YOU DO A FULL SERVER RESTART!
Let’s take a look at how tooltips work:
Each item has a new variable on their tooltip called ‘Weight’. This determines the item’s weight multiplied by the amount of the item in the stack.The pictures indicate how the color will change with the more of said item you have in a stack. Green means light, dark green means slightly-light, orange means heavy, and red means very heavy:
Next, is how weight is displayed. As shown in the inventory section, your weight is displayed in the custom inventory. It can also be displayed on the HUD, which is configurable within the wl.config file:
When you become over encumbered, the letter’s on the HUD will turn red:
If you turn on advanced tooltips (Holding F3 + H), you will get an advanced view of your current weight (NOTE: This is only available on the HUD display of your weight. If you toggle it off in the config, you will not see advanced weight!):
There is a small bug with the advanced HUD display that I am currently working to fix.
