Minecraft’s Special Armor mod (also known by one word as the SpecialArmor mod) does exactly what you think it does: it adds new types of special armor to the game.
What types of special armor can you enjoy? Well we’re not just talking about new types of ore and armor/tool sets. We’re talking about entirely new types of capes, leggings, and helmets, including all of the following cool items:
-Capes that allow players to glide
-Speed Legs that allow players to run faster
-Diving Helmet that prevents players from drowning under water
-Fireplate that prevents players from dying when exposed to lava or fire while also lighting all mobs within a two block radius on fire. To make the armor even more powerful, a 5×5 field of fire will appear when you hold the G button.
-Heavy Boots that cause players to slow down when running and fall more quickly. What is the point of such a useless pair of boots? “Don’t ask me why there are such boots, it wasn’t my idea” – pitman-87, the mod’s new creator. Okay then.
-Spring: Required to craft certain items
-Jump Boots: Allows players to jump up to 5 blocks higher while not receiving any fall damage
-Magic Substance: This new item is required in order to craft a number of new armor pieces and objects
-Hover Boots: These boots allow players to go over water and lava and glide for a short period of time. Once that short period of time runs out, you fall. That’s okay if you’re gliding over water, but obviously very risky if you’re gliding over lava, so be careful.
-Slime Helmet: Lets players stick and move on the ceiling
-Time Helmet: When wearing this helmet, time speeds up
-Chain armor and Obsidian armor: Functions as regular armor
-Pork armor and cooked pork armor (seriously): When wearing the cooked pork armor suit, players receive a heart every ten seconds (half a heart every ten seconds for the pork armor)
-Double Jump Boots: Allows players to jump two tiles
