Quark Oddities

Quark Oddities is an addon for the mod Quark. It adds a backpack, magnets, pipes, totem of holding and an overhaul to the enchanting system.


This Backpack can be worn in the Chest slot, and it’ll give you a bunch of extra slots in your inventory to store all your stuff. Note that the backpack does not provide any protection, nor is it enchantable. It is made with Ravager Hide so is extremely resistant, so it’ll never break! It can also be dyed just like leather armor.


Magnets are new technical blocks that can move metallic blocks. A metallic block is defined as block made of Iron Ingots, or made of things made of Iron Ingots. When powered, the front (red) side of the Magnet will push blocks forward like a piston, whereas the back side will pull blocks towards it.

When multiple Magnets are exerting force upon the same block, the one with the highest force wins. A magnet’s force upon a block is the redstone level applied to it, minus the distance.


Pipes transport items from point A to point B. To get items into a pipe simply use a Hopper, Dropper, or any other insertion means you may have handy.

Item Pipes are rudimentary and don’t include any filtering or pathing for items. The way items flow in pipes is based in a small set of rules. To learn more about the rules, visit the Quark website.

Totem of Holding

When a player dies, a Totem of Holding will spawn at the dead player’s position. This totem will float around in the air, holding the player’s items. Any player can retrieve the items the totem is holding by punching it a few times. (The totem will not spawn for PVP kills)

Do note that if the player who spawned the totem dies again, the totem will break and drop all of the items on the ground, like a normal death. The totem isn’t an item – it just shows up for you.

A player’s totem can be located by crafting a Soul Compass, which is done using a Compass and a Soul Bead.

Matrix Enchanting

Matrix Enchanting is a complete overhaul of the enchanting system. Pieces can be generated using lapis and XP. The pieces then have to be laid on the grid to enchant the item. Pieces can be rotated and upgraded into higher levels.

Furthermore, the enchanting table can now hold Lapis and the item you put in. The item will even render in the world! You can enchant underwater too.
