Update: I'm done with college for a while and I've found the texture files and workshop to this mod so I can continue working on this. For anyone that's still waiting, thank you for your patients.

Welcome to Expanded Armour, a mod that adds heavy and special variants of the vanilla armour sets. The concept behind this mod was inspired by the heavy armor featured in the Chocolate Quest mod. I initally wanted to make my own variant and bring it to 1.12.2, so here it is. Sorry if the item icons and textures look weird and don't quite match, I am not very good at that.

Each heavy armor set is +1 protection, +1 toughness, & a bit of knockback resistance than their previous iteration, each will give a slowness effect when equipped. If they are damaged then they can be repaired based on the material they were mainly made of on the anvil.


A new series of armor sets has been introduced to help take on some of the heavier hitting enemies from different mods. These armor pieces are evolved versions of the heavy sets and come with a host of their own abilities and buffs to help its user. Please note that this part of the mod is still in it's testing phase with more pieces being added in the future for 1.16.5 and beyond. Sets may be subject to being restated if I think they're too weak or too strong. These textures are not the final iterations of the sets either and are just placeholders till I can figure out how to render an appropriate model. In time, I hope this mod will become reasonably balanced for the power scale it is intended to be used in.

Evolved Sets

Sentinel Set

Vanquisher Set

Juggernaut Set

Sentinel Set: Enhanced version of the Heavy Iron set; this armor is very defense oriented with the helmet granting a Resistance III status bonus and a LVL 1 Absorption buffer.

Plans: Remodel to give chains depth, make trims and core glow, & ability to summon golem companion.

Vanquisher Set: Enhanced version of the Heavy Gold set with buffs ranging more towards offense. Wearing the helmet grants Strength III, Haste I, & Speed I to the user (mobs included). It has the ability to life steal from any target that the wearer kills, gaining approximately 3-4 hearts.

Plans: Remodel helmet, make trims and core glow, & add red particle effect for those killed.
Juggernaut Set: The most powerful amongst the three; it is the enhanced version of the heavy diamond set. The Juggernaut set prioritizes your survival above all. Wearing the chest piece grants a LVL 2 Absorption buffer and has the ability to regenerate its wearer whenever it detects an attack.

Plans: Make trims glow, make armor talk, add knockback immunity, add fall damage immunity.

In order to make these sets, you must first make the Latent Adapter, which requires a 4 string, sugar, redstone dust, glowstone dust, blaze powder, & a nether star. Once you have the Latent Adapter, smelt it in the furnace in order to awaken the core. Once complete, an Evolutionary Adapter will be made.

Warning: The Evolutionary Adapter is dangerous to hold and will cause negative status effects.

Once the Evolutionary Adapter is obtained, attach it to one of the heavy armor pieces via crafting.


That's it... sorry.

This looks great! Can you update it to 1.15.2 though?

if leather armor can be mixed with chainmail then how about adding studded armor variations for iron, diamond, gold, and netherite, and Will you port this mod to 1.16.5?
