The Armor Movement Mod adds a lot of “movement” armors for the game, movement armors such as jet packs, speed boots, ice-skates, scuba gear and so on.
A total list of the new armors is as follows:
- A Glider (Makes you safely glide from high places when pressing the action key)
- Parachute (Makes you fall slowly when pressing the action key)
- Life Vest (Makes you float in water without doing anything, just equip it and you’ll be fine)
- Flippers (Makes you swim faster when you’re in water, however you’ll move slower on land)
- Heelys (Boots that makes you move a lot faster when pressing the action key)
- Jet Pack (Makes you fly if you keep holding the jump key after jumping)
- Helicopter Hat (Same as the Jet Pack, only a bit slower)
- Spring Boots (Makes you jump a lot higher (6 blocks higher))
- Grappling Hook (This will teleport you to any surface it hits)
- Ice Skates (Makes you move faster when you’re on ice, but slower on normal land)
- Mountain Boots (Gives you the ability to climb any vertical surface, including fences
- Scuba Helmet (Gives you the ability to breathe underwater, making sea exploration a lot easier)
- And finally, the mod adds bananas, which is just like apples in function.
The action key is bound to “F” as default, but can be changed in the options.
These armors are pretty much all very useful in exploring the world, as they each give different benefits, such as the ability to breathe under water, move faster over the ground, glide down from high mountains, or even just fly around with the Jet Pack.
Important! The mod requires Minecraft Forge in order to work.
Here you’ll see me safely gliding from the top of a tree on a small mountain, down to a desert in the distance:
