Being dropped into a world with absolutely nothing in your inventory is a quintessential Minecraft experience. Your first adventure in Minecraft generally consists of beating your character’s hand against a tree to make wood.
If you’ve grown tired of starting from the bottom at the beginning of every Minecraft game, then you’ll like the Starting Inventory Mod for Minecraft. The Starting Inventory Mod does exactly what you think it does: edits your starting inventory!
This mod – like a lot of good Minecraft mods – was made by a modder named DaftPVF. DaftPVF is also responsible for the Floating Ruins Mod, the Crystal Wing Mod, and the Slime Boots Mod, among others.
After installing the Starting Inventory Mod, you simply type /startinginv [save/load] into your chat menu to save your current inventory for a later date.
The mod will then save all of the items in your current inventory and remember those items in a config file the next time you start a game.
All you need to do is collect all of the items you want in your inventory and then type /startinginv save to save those items. If the save is successful, you’ll see a message confirming that the config file has been saved.
You can then test if your inventory is saved correctly by going to /startinginv load. However, if you type /startinginv load when you don’t have a blank inventory, then the mod will wipe out whatever other inventory items you had and replace those items with your saved inventory.
All 36 main inventory slots are saved, although your armor and weapon slots are not.
Best of all, the latest Starting Inventory Version includes Forge compatibility, which means you can avoid the complicated installation sequences from past versions.
That’s it! This is another simple and useful mod that gets easier and easier to appreciate the longer you play Minecraft.
