Ever find yourself digging or mining in a cave, or maybe you've been through a dense forest and you've found yourself short of tools. Well then, haven't you tried to prevent the scarcity of tools by making numerous tools, but then another problem occurs? Not enough inventory space! that's why I've invented Equipment blocks! With this mod, you can put 9 of any kind of shovel, pickaxe, or hatchet all into one block! and Stack them up to 64! (duh) and to get the items back, just simply destroy the block!
I can see many problems with this: What if you want just 1 tool out of the box, because you only have 1 inventory space left? You're wasting 8 tools. This could be slightly combated by making them 4-tool boxes instead of 9-tool, I guess. Perhaps the boxes could instead be items with durability? For every time you "use" the item, one of the tool gets dropped at your feet, and the item loses durability? So a 4-tool item will be able to deposit, well, 4 tools before breaking.
Good idea, just not implemented quite right.
maybe i'll make a smaller block in a later version. but if you wanted 1 tool, wouldn't you just make 1? not 9? not trying to be rude, i'm just pointing that out. and i like the idea! i'll see what i can do. no promises though
