Block Armor Mod (1.18.1 and 1.17.1), adds armor from blocks, as well as mods, to the game. They can have different stats depending on which block they are made from. Some armor sets have effects when all four pieces are worn. Resource packs can also be used with the armor texture!
All armors, except for Sugarcane, Emerald and Snow, are made using the standard armor crafting recipe. (Lapis armor uses Lapis Lazuli block, Obsidian armor uses obsidian. The item form is used for Emerald and Sugarcane armor (i.e. emerald, and not emerald blocks), while Snow uses leather or an leather chestplate instead of snow blocks.
