Modular Powersuits is a mod that adds powered armor and tools. This armor can be modified by using different modules which add special abilities, with the tradeoff that some items also add weight to the powersuit. If the player's equipped armor totals more than 25kg then extra weight above that slows down movement speed, making it harder to run or even impossible to swim against a water current.
One of the biggest perks of modifying your power suit are the utilities, such as breathing underwater, running faster, and flying. By current default a server which uses the YogCraft Modpack does not allow flying and must be edited to enable. It is advised to be well stocked up on redstone, iron, and ender pearls before you start modifying your armor as a LOT of these materials will be needed.
You can customize your power suit, make it look different and how you want it, but be wary. By removing parts of the armor you make said exposed parts vulnerable. YOUR ARMOR SUIT WILL NOT PROTECT THESE AREAS.
Modular Powersuits is compatible with IndustrialCraft2, GregTech, Thermal Expansion and the Ampz Pack. At the moment this mod is in a very early stage (v0.3.0-178), meaning that there may be major changes to it in the future.
Pressing 'K' (by default) will open up the key configurations menu for this mod.
Note that in the Ultimate Pack, both the "Vanilla" and GregTech recipes are enabled, meaning that you can use either the expensive GregTech recipe or the cheaper (albeit iron- and redstone-hungry) alternatives. This is likely to change in the future, especially since a fully armored powersuit with a jetpack is basically a very cheap equivalent to Quantum Armor.
The power indicator is now a vertical bar on the right side of the screen, to the left of the new heat bar. The heat bar will fill up with the use of modules, some modules filling it up more than others. The heat will slowly dissipate. If the heat exceeds the bar then the player is set on fire. While water will cool the player down faster, it will not extingush the fire and if the player is killed by it then a custom death message is shown.
Modules such as the Custom Color Module have been removed and instead the player may press L by default to open up the cosmetic config. Here the player can edit a 3d model of the powersuit with custom colors and the ability to add/remove parts of it. When editing the color, there are three options: The darker chestplate texture is invisible, the plain white one is visible, and the white chestplate with the blue dot is visible, but is not affected by light and always stays fully bright. Good for making glowing parts such as crystals. And don't forget it can be destroyed like other armor, unlike the Quantum Suit.
