    Because One is never enough!
    Backpack is the ultimate salvation in inventory management. Your standard minecraft inventory has 36 slots in it, just enough to be handy, but terrible for long journeys or mining expeditions to the other side of the map. Backpack nonatuples your existing inventory space. (For those of you not familiar with latin, that's 9x the space).
    How is this massive inventory boost possible? The mouse wheel. (Thanks to Edward Hand for the idea!) Sneaking while Scrolling through each of the quickslots switches you to a new inventory page. This gives you freedom to scroll through NINE different pages. Scrolling without sneaking allows you to scroll through your inventory like normal.

    If you don't quite get it, I've made a short video demonstrating:
    Is there a way to change the number of pages? I only want certain users to have x amount of pages.
    Yes, see the next question down!
    Is there permission or group manager support!
    Nope! There is however a configuration file (aptly named "config.xml") that is created on the first run and allows you to customize the amount of extra inventory pages, and who gets to use them.
    Are your inventories saved between logins and server restarts?
    Yes. Backpack saves the inventories in the same file notch does, in the "player".dat file.
    Updating all those files must be slow/I heard that I/O operations are slow.
    They are. Backpack is multithreaded, so if you have more than 1 core, you won't notice any lag.
    This mod doesn't have anything to do with Minecarts, why the Minecart Mania dependency?
    Minecart Mania offers a useful interface for a lot of things I needed in writing Backpack, and 70% of the code is actually in MM. If you really hate Minecart Mania, you can just install core, and disable all of the features from it's configuration file.

    Sorry, not gonna happen. At least, not this month or next. When I say "maybe if I get some time", your need is not something I'm considering.

    Sad to see there aren't any good inventory expansion plugins out there. SpoutBackpack was discontinued as well.

    Okay so i have the 1337 version of bukkit right now and also have minecart mania suite (as far as i can tell) running perfectly i went to install this plugin and found everything in my inventory gone, along with the fact that whenever i tried to get something*blocks/items* it wouldnt work. I also found that after awhile if i kept trying to get items my player would be ejected from the game leaving a "connection lost internal exception: Read timed out" message and making this in my server window

    Hey guys, i think you should look at this: basically says he's not working on it anymore and ignoring everyone that asks him about it, though he does allow anybody to claim his code as theirs and continue it. I honestly hope that someone will continue a this plugin :).

    Be nice if you could set an item a player needs to have in their inventory to have a backpack.
