The pickup upgrade allows items to be added straight into a Sophisticated Backpack instead of the player’s inventory. Multiple filtering options are available which lets you determine which items can enter the backpack.
Crafting the Pickup Upgrade
Like with other Sophisticated Backpacks Upgrades, two tiers are available, with the second offering more filtering options. To create the Pickup Upgrade, place an Upgrade Base, 3 Redstone Dust, 2 Strings, and a Sticky Piston in a Crafting Table.
When you feel ready to craft the Advanced Pickup Upgrade, you can combine a regular Pickup Upgrade with 2 Gold Ingots, 3 Redstone Dust, and 1 Diamond. The Advanced Pickup Upgrade will give more filtering options, which you can read about below.
With the standard Pickup Upgrade, you can determine which items will be added to the Backpack, or which items will be blocked from entering it. An option also exists to add items to the Backpacks if that item is already stored inside so that it’s added to the stack.
After creating the Advanced Pickup Upgrade, some new filtering options will become available. The first new option will allow you to switch between matching mods, tags, or items, with the default selection being items. You can also choose to match durability, which will allow damaged items to be ignored, as well as ignore NBT tags.
If you want everything added to the Backpack instead of your inventory, the easiest way would be to select the ‘Block’ option in the filters and leave the item selection area empty.
