Block armor gives you the ability to make armor out of nearly every block in the game. The armor is all crafted the same as traditional armor, except now you have a significantly broader variety to choose from. Below is the entire list of armor you can craft. You can see the incredibly wide variety of blocks to choose from and customize to suit your needs. There are 1264 options to choose from to make a brand new set of armor and the developer also allows for block from other mods to be used as well. Also any block that has an animation while placed will carry over to the armor that you craft and will animate while you are wearing it.
But this mod is more than just fancy new armor designs made from any block in the game. Many of the blocks will give you a boosted effect when wearing a full suit of them. So you can now take on the look of any type of block you choose to blend in with but you could gain a very useful buff to help you out even more. Any block that grows from the ground, such as trees, grass, or cacti, will actually regenerate the armor’s health over time. So now you won’t have to worry about repairing replacing these sets as quickly since these will take care of that for you!
You can also get a very useful upgrade by crafting suits of armor made from light blocks, like glowstone. Not only will you don the look of the glowstone blocks on the surface, you will actually produce up to fifteen light levels around you when you wear the full set. This is especially useful for traveling by night and if you are in any dark caves and you have no torches available. You won’t need to place any light blocks and leave them behind now since you will actually be wearing the light everywhere you go!
You can even make armor sets out of glass blocks. While this does not sound incredibly useful in offering any sort of damage protection, the flip side benefit when wearing a full set of glass armor will provide the wearer invisibility. So if you are ever in a situation where you are low on health or simply outmatched, all you need to do is put on some glass armor and suddenly you’ll be able to make a quick and unseen getaway!
There are definitely some blocks that will actually help increase your defenses. Quartz block armor will provide the wearer with a +1 speed buff as well as increased attack damage and strength.
And Netherrack armor will deal fire damage when wearing a full set. So any time you attack an enemy mob or even if they attack you, they will suffer fire damage on top of any damage you inflict with your weapons. This can be especially useful if you don’t have many high damage weapons in your arsenal or if you happen to fighting any enemies particularly affected by fire damage.
This mod is definitely worth exploring and trying out all the different options for what to make armor out of. These are merely a few examples of the many options available. You could make armor out of any stone blocks and you will be able to travel faster at the bottom of the ocean. Soft blocks like wool will do the opposite and make the wearer much lighter and less susceptible to fall damage. If you hate that you need to find a bed to sleep or set a spawn point, you could instead get this mod and craft a suit of armor made out of any of the different colored bed options and sleep literally anywhere you want. This mod also has a config option to enable or disable any of the effects for any suit of armor as well as the ability to change how many pieces of the armor is needed to enable to effect. So if you would like to mix and match pieces of armor but you want to maximize the effects that they would give if wearing a full suit, then you can change the amount needed for the effect to only one piece. This way you can have at least four effects applied all at the same time as well as wearing whatever variety of blocks you can imagine!DownloadForumInstall Guide
