Packing Tape is a simple mod which allows you to move blocks around in Minecraft, without having to break them or destroy their contents. As an example, Chests which are full of items can be picked up, moved somewhere else and placed down again, all without disrupting the contents.

Using Packing Tape
To use the mod, you’ll need to craft Packing Tape from 1 Slimeball, 1 String and 1 Paper. Use the image below as a reference. When using Packing Tape, you’ll also need to have extra Paper inside your inventory.
Packing Tape has multiple uses, with the durability deteriorating each time a block is packaged. To use it, sneak and right click a block.
The mod has support for vanilla blocks, as well as modded ones. Sneak and right click a block, and it will become packaged. When you break a Packaged Block, it will be added to your inventory.
Place it down in a location of your choosing, then right click the Packaged Block to remove the paper. Your block will be placed down, and all its items will remain inside, as well as its current state.

How to InstallIf you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
- Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
- Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
- Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
