Level 50 : Grandmaster Engineer

Block Armor is a mod that adds sets of armor made from many blocks in game, including blocks from other mods! They have different stats, depending on the block the armor is made from. Some armor sets also have effects when worn. The armor texture also supports resource packs!


Additional Mods:

If other mods with blocks are added, there will be armor added for most of those blocks.

Armor Sets:

For each valid block, a full set of armor items (helmet, chestplate, leggings, and boots) will be added. Each item is crafted using the desired block in the shape the armor is normally crafted in, and can be repaired using that block as well.

Resource Packs:

The armor textures will change with the block texture when a resource pack is added.

Animated Textures:

Armor made from blocks with an animated texture will also have an animated texture.

Set Effects:

While wearing at least the number of pieces required for set effects (specified in config), certain armor sets gain special effects and bonuses!


You can easily choose to enable or disable any armor sets or set effects in the config. You can also change settings for the number of pieces required for set effects, whether or not set effects use durability, etc.

Due to the modding community pushing towards 1.10.2, I will be discontinuing ports to versions before 1.10.2.

lol it's so funny
Excellent work!
Sorry!!! I was an idiot and was trying to use this mod on Realms, which has no mod support. Both of the below functions are working now.

Classic Realms. Glad to know you figured out the issue!
Can you update it so that the armor can be placed on armor stands?
I'm using the newest 1.12 version, and I tried to use Command Block Armor(a full set) but when I hold down 'R' the sun starts going down quickly but returns to its original position after a second. Is there a way I can fix this?

Hey dude I made a video about your mod
(It's in my profile :) )
This is the largest armor mod I've ever tried. I don't know if I'll ever be able to try all of them, but it could be very helpful for a modded survival. I did a mod showcase for it here:

Make Armor Out of Literally Any Minecraft Block

I wasn't able to cover all of them, but I think I got at least 15-16.
really epic mod cant wait to see what it becomes :D <3<3<3

We will be adding 1.12 support. However, we're waiting for Forge to get a more stable version, as there are quite a few things that changed between 1.11 and 1.12 that they seem to be working on. After that, we can get a 1.12 out!

Is it possible... In the 1.10.2 version (I haven't tried other versions) to change the amount of armor pieces needed down from 3 to 2 just for convenience?
I have tried to look in the files but I don't know where to do to change it manually from 3 to 2...
Also, Here is an idea for new armor:
ore armor (iron, gold, redstone, coal, diamond, lapis, emerald). Maybe have this armor act like fortune enchantment e.g emerald and diamond would be equivalent to fortune 3 whereas coal and iron would be equal to fortune 1. Just a thought :)

The number of pieces required for the set effect can be changed in the config. It does allow going down to even 1 armor piece to achieve the set effect (we spent quite some time messing around with 1 armor piece for the effect, quite fun).
  • JGLFGaming
  • Level 1
  • New Explorer
  • April 13, 2017, 5:54 pm
But how do you set the amount of pieces for each set effect below 3 because in the config that is as low as it lets me go... or is it only in the latest version of the mod that allows it in the in game config... I will try that and if it works I will reply again to tell you whether or not it worked.. please could you give directions otherwise to change this manually in the files?

er.... how do i install this without running into weird ads? Im minecraft 1.11.2
I think it's because after you skip whatever ad thing it just closes and redirects you to the page you're looking for but opens up another ad page but after you close it no more pages will appear but I think by weird ads he means those "click on add extension to close this page" then it zooms who ever into the page and even if they clicked esc (the button to get out of full screen) they just zoom it back in until you add it and won't appear at the bar in the top but I just go to my settings>extension>(random virus extention)>remove>are you sure? (report) -> report and remove> tell us why? (writes in reason) or those other ADs like YOU'VE WON THIS (99.9999999% of the time these are scams with fake comments) or other weird ads. cause I had seen ads about 18+ games. I think you should stop using (Ad link removed) or any OTHER ad service.

You can just skip the ads by clicking the button that appears in the upper right corner after a few seconds.

Can you list the durability and strength of each armor? It'd be tedious, but it'd be certainly helpful because I'm not sure what tier these are.
  • 2piradians
  • Level 50
  • Grandmaster Engineer
  • March 7, 2017, 4:10 pm
It would be extremely tedious considering we don't even set the values directly; we use an algorithm to do it.

The armor spans a whole range of durability and protection. It is dependent on the block's hardness, so there are some that have low durability and protection because the block breaks instantly (slime), and there are some that have very high durability and protection because very hard to break (obsidian). It also depends if you have any other mods that add blocks, because likely those also have armor generated for them, and could be whatever our algorithm calculated for stats.

Wool armor! It can be dyed various colors, and its effects include reducing knockback and also fall damage. :D
i would down load if it was for 1.8

  • November 23, 2016, 7:22 pm
There's a 1.8.9 download on that page (from when I started the mod), but you can only get the current armors for 1.8. You just won't get the armor effects with them.
OK ill try it thank you
enderpearl armor- gives you the ability to teleport every min.

Unfortunately, no. You need the same mod version as the forge version. So 1.10.2 version of mod needs 1.10.2 version of forge.
