The Special Armor Mod is a mod that adds several new unique and special armors or clothing to the game, each with some new special ability or feature. Most are somewhat overpowered, but they are fun to use and that is also the emphasis of this mod: to increase the fun. The armors can have special qualities such as the Hover Boots, special boots allowing you to “walk” on water and lava, the Magic Boots that changes water to ice, lava to obsidian and more when you walk over those blocks, or the Slime Helmet that makes you stick to ceilings and move along them.
There is also simpler pieces of armor, such as the ice skates that make you walk slower on land, but faster and more precisely on ice, and the pork armor, that restores half a heart every 10 seconds when you wear every piece of it.
Important: this mod requires Minecraft Forge in order to function.
Most of the armors are pretty simple to craft, and the mod also introduces new crafting materials that you have to craft first in order to use in the crafting of the armors.
The mod is very similar to the Armor Movement Mod, however this mod has some very different armors, in addition to the ones similar to those found in Armor Movement.Here is the full list of recipes (click to expand)
