BetterStorage

Latest version: 0.8.0.45 (Minecraft 1.6)


Welcome to the thread of my work-in-progress mod called BetterStorage, for the lack of a better name. It adds more storage options, like storage crates, backpacks, reinforced chests, lockers, armor stands, locks, keys and much more... I'm aiming for fun, interesting and balanced features which would fit well into vanilla Minecraft, but also work nicely together with other mods.

BetterStorage will not get ported to 1.7 - at least not by me.

I will attempt to fix bugs for 1.6, but no new features will be added.

More on this and what's going to happen next on my blog:

I like the idea of more storage options. It would also be cool to have different models, shapes or sizes. Like storage cabinets that were two blocks high or very small quarter block storage containers.
My only limitation is my lack of imagination.  I can't code but I can build Adventure Maps. :)
Compilation Map  Adventure Map  Four Towers Full Edition and Jump and Ladders plus  Halls of Thorn.

The multi-block storage is a really good idea!

I don't want to copy Jammy Furniture Mod so I won't add very special blocks like that, but I might add a similar block which you can open from the side and can be built next to each other, unlike chests.

Looks awesome copy. This will replace iron chests for me upon its release.
I'm not going to click your stupid dragon.

Just a little teaser on the crates.
It's just the texture I can show, but there's been quite some work done code-wise and the crates are almost working as I want them to. I'm pretty happy how it turned out.

I've seen some developmental secrets on those crates, and let me tell you they are awesome! Very excited.

Ahh, finally. I got the mod materials chests done. Seems like no modders use the ore dictionary for their blocks (Copper Block, Tin Block, Silver Block, ...), which made this a little bit harder. Anyway here's some screenshots while you're waiting:

The first pre-release should be out soon, the only thing missing is the GUI for the crates, which I'm still not sure how to do. I might do pages, maybe a scroll bar (like in the creative inventory). Since the creates aren't meant to act as personal storage, I might even simplify everything and only show one page of inventory, perhaps even random items from the crate. So if you decide to use the crates to store lots of different items in it, you might need to open and close it a few times to find what you need. Sounds fun ~♫

edit: Before I forget, I think I haven't mentioned it here yet. Crates are automatically sorted!

Please let me know what you think on this and share your opinions and ideas.

They look awesome, cannot wait for more information on the crates.

I guess it needs to be not to hard to use, else people won't use it much.

It must have been really hard to model those reinforced chests!

And is it forge or what?

It's just the default chest model with a texture put together from the chest, iron and gold block texture ^^
Yes, obviously, it's for MinecraftForge. What else? ModLoader? Hahahahah. (Just kidding.)

Really nice mod!
I have few ideas:
1)A closet for armors.
2)A toolbox for tools/swords.

A way to store / display a set of armor, possible to (un)equip it quickly might be nice, but I have a feeling it might be too specific. Toolboxes are to specific so I probably won't add them.
Thinking about the armor stand, display cases and other stuff to show single items might be nice. Or is that too similar to item frames? If I decide to do that it'll probably be one of the later additions to the mod.

Its would be similar but you can make it better looking/advanced and than no one will complain :)

Of course, there's always bookshelves to add...
You could also try to do inventory storage, like bags...
And you might be able to do something like storage boxes where it's like a chest but you can see the item in the first slot (cross between chest and item frame)  (Okay now I really like this idea! Can you PLEASE make it??)

Inventory storage ... maybe, but I don't want to add bags. Maybe some form of crate / cardboard box which you can carry to move items between places easily. Without it "increasing" your inventory space if you know what I mean.
Labeling chests might be possible, I'm thinking about being able to add an item frame on top of them where you can put in items, or showing the first / most common item in the chest. I won't add it as a separate block.
