All of the jetpacks are worn in the chestplate slot can be charged using an Energetic Infuser. They can also be recharged by a Flux Capacitor if both the jetpack and the activated capacitor are placed in the hotbar.
The jetpacks have two controls. The first is whether or not the jetpack is enabled at all, which by default is bound to F. The second, bound to C, toggles hover mode. Jumping while the jetpack is active will cause the user to fly upwards. The different jetpacks have differing levels of thrust. In hover mode, the user will descend very slowly. Pressing the Left Shift key in hover mode will descend faster. With hover mode disabled, the user will fall as if they did not have a jetpack at all.
Jetpacks are the main feature of the mod, of course! All information about jetpacks is listed here. Other than the obvious feature (flying), jetpacks can have a few other abilities.
- Hover Mode: Jetpacks can be set to be in hover mode. By default, jetpacks let users fly upwards fast and allow them to freefall. In hover mode, users can’t freefall, but instead slowly descend. Flying upwards is also slower in hover mode. Higher tier jetpacks descend more slowly. By sneaking, useres can avoid this to descend faster.
- Armor: Jetpacks may be armored using armor plating, to provide protection like a proper chestplate. Higher tier jetpacks have better protection values, but also require armor plating that is made from more expensive materials.
- Particles: It is possible to change what particle type a jetpack emits, using particle customizers. Currently there are four possible particle types: default (flames and smoke), no particles, smoke only and rainbow smoke.
- Safety: Higher tier jetpacks will save their users from falling to death. By default, the Reinforced Jetpack and anything better than that can do this. These jetpacks will also save their users from falling into the void. Note that lower tier jetpacks will NOT do this, unless configured otherwise!
Currently, there are seven different jetpacks in the mod.
- Tier 1 Jetpack (Leadstone / Conductive Iron): A low-tier, cheap jetpack that is available early-game. It is not very fast, and doesn’t last very long. Still, it’s better than no flight at all.
- Tier 2 Jetpack (Hardened / Electrical Steel): An upgrade to the Tier 1 Jetpack. It is slightly faster and lasts a bit longer than the previous tier. It’s available soon after the Leadstone Jetpack.
- Tier 3 Jetpack (Reinforced / Energetic): A significant improvement over the last two tiers. It flies a lot faster and lasts quite a bit longer. The flight is also a lot easier to control.
- Tier 4 Jetpack (Resonant / Vibrant): The best regular jetpack available in survival mode. It is even faster than the Tier 3 Jetpack, lasts for a very long time before needing a recharge and is very easy to control, to a point that it could be considered close to creative flight.
- JetPlate (Flux-Infused / Dark Soularium): Not a regular jetpack, but a combination of an armored Tier 4 Jetpack and an armored Tier 4 Flux Pack with added armor. Because of this, it offers flight, charging and a very good armor value. The flight is also even more stable than the Tier 4 Jetpack. Idle descent is completely nonexistent with this item, making flying with it almost exactly the same as creative flight, if not arguably better.
- Creative Jetpack: As it name suggests, only available in creative mode. It is very similar to JetPlates, but it will never run out of power.
- Tuberous Jetpack: A makeshift potato-powered jetpack. It’s cheaper than the Tier 1 Jetpack, but it has a little disadvantage…
2. Flux Packs
Flux Packs are a secondary feature of the mod, and are basically Thermal Expansion Energy Cells or Ender IO Capacitor Banks worn as armor. They are a special kind of chestplate that will charge RF-powered items that are worn as armor or are currently held in the user’s hand.
Flux Packs can be armored the same way jetpacks can.
Currently, there are four different flux packs in the mod. The Ender IO versions are called Capacitor Packs instead of Flux Packs.
- Tier 1 Flux Pack (Leadstone / Basic): The lowest tier. Slowly charges items, and doesn’t store that much. Its stats are quite similar to Thermal Expansion’s Leadstone Energy Cell.
- Tier 2 Flux Pack (Hardened / Double-Layer): A slight improvement over the first tier. Charges items quicker, and stores a bit more power too. Its stats are quite similar to Thermal Expansion’s Hardened Energy Cell.
- Tier 3 Flux Pack (Redstone / Quadruple-Layer): A much better flux pack than the previous two. Charges items quite quickly, and stores a good amount of power. Its stats are quite similar to Thermal Expansion’s Redstone Energy Cell.
- Tier 4 Flux Pack (Resonant / Octadic): The highest tier. Stores a huge amount of power, and charges items very quickly. Its stats are quite similar to Thermal Expansion’s Resonant Energy Cell. It can be used to create a JetPlate.
Simply Jetpacks has some basic controls you need to know before trying to use anything.
- Turn on/off: Lets you turn a jetpack or flux pack on or off. They are off initially, so you need to use this key before using them. Mapped to F by default, but can be changed in the Controls screen. Note: When wearing a JetPlate, this key can be used to either turn on the jetpack engine or the flux pack charger. Sneak and press the key to enable the charger. Otherwise, the engine will be enabled.
- Switch mode: Lets you turn Hover Mode on or off on a jetpack. Mapped to C by default, but can be changed in the Controls screen.
- Fly: Hold this button when wearing an active jetpack to fly upwards. By default, this is always whatever the Jump keybind is set to. However, this can be changed in the configuration file to be another key. It has to be set in the configuration file to avoid conflicts, just like it doesn’t conflict with the Jump keybind by default.
- Descend: Hold this button when wearing an active jetpack in hover mode to descend faster. By default, this is always whatever the Sneak keybind is set to. However, this can be changed in the configuration file to be another key.
Since pretty much everyone in modded Minecraft uses it anyway, it is encouraged to use Not Enough Items to look up the recipes for the items in the mod.
Simply Jetpacks is a very configurable mod. For example, the speed, power usage or energy storage of jetpacks can be changed, but that is not all. Have a look around in the ingame config GUI, or the config file itself, and check out all the things you can actually change in the mod!
