One of my favorite parts about Skyrim (okay, one of like 100 favorite parts) is that your weapons appear on the back of your character when not in use. In a lot of RPGs, players are expected to believe that twenty axes and five bows simply fit into the player’s backpack and pop into their hands when they’re needed to be used.
Minecraft is one of those games where all of your player’s items just slide into a void and disappear when not in use. The Back Tools Mod fixes that problem. With the Back Tools Mod, players will see their items and weapons appear on their back when not in use.
That’s all this mod does. But it’s very good at it. Your wonderfully crafted diamond tools and swords look fantastic on the back of your player. In third person view, you’ll see exactly what your player’s carrying and what they currently have equipped.
The mod is disabled on players who are wearing capes and cloaks, so if you want to see your items and weapons on your back, be sure to disable your cloak/cape first.
This mod is purely an aesthetic mod. And I’m perfectly okay with that. To check out how your player looks, download this mod today and follow the instructions below to install it.
