Compact Crafting is coming to 1.7.2 SOON...track the development on the github page!
Compact Crafting 4.0.1 for 1.5.1 is now out with even more and better features, including the pressure machine! Over 500 Downloads now, and still counting! 4.0.1 fixes some bugs!
Added to GitHub Now! (Links to other pages section)
This Mod Allows you to compact items and other blocks into Compact Blocks, making it much easier for you to carry things in your inventory! There are lots of planned features and this mods' growing all the time!
List of features:
Compact Coal Block
Compact Pickaxes (Tier one and Tier two)
Compact Creative Tab
Compact Axes (Tier one and Tier two)
Possibility of getting up to 10 of the core material when breaking a Compact Block
Compact Glass through smelting Compact Sand
Compact Shovels (Tier one and Tier two)
Compact Redstone Crystal
Glass Brick and Glass Brick Block
Both Compact Coal and Compact Coal Block increase the smelting value and can be used as fuel.
The recipes are the same as it is for Diamond Blocks, Iron Blocks etc., except using the material you wish to compact. Compact Pickaxes and Axes just need 4 of the Pickaxe/Axe you are compacting in the crafting table. For Second Tier Compact Pickaxes, you just need to place 4 of the same First Tier Compact Pickaxes into the Crafting Table.
Compact Pickaxes, Axes and shovels multiplies the durability by 4, for the first Compact tier, and increase the efficiency and damage slightly. For the second Compact Tier, the First Tier Durability is multiplied by 4 and then reduced slightly, and the efficiency and damage are increased more than the First Tier.
World Generation is now added where Compact Cobblestone is often spawned below layer 16 underground.
The Compact Creative Tab Features all the Compact Blocks/Items in this mod (Apart from Compact Tools)
The Pressure Machine is crafted like this:
Where B is an Iron block, P is a piston, and R is a Redstone Crystal.
Redstone Crystals are used to power the Pressure Machine. It is crafted like Compact Coal is crafted, but with Redstone instead of Coal.
Glass Bricks are created by putting Compact Glass into the pressure machine. Glass Bricks are used to make Glass Brick Blocks, which are made like Compact Coal, but with Glass Bricks instead of Coal.
You can disable any Compact Blocks by setting any block ID to 999 in the config file. You can also find other configurable settings there, such as World Generation.

AranhaPreta - I'm glad you like it. In the next update there should be more achievements (now that achievements work fine). Shovels will also come soon, in the next update or maybe the one after that
iStaR - Thanks! And the duration of tools is at the bottom of the item, that bar (might be either green or orange or red) is the percentage of how much duration you have left(It's the same with Compact Tools and Vanilla Tools). Or did you mean something else?
Putting the mod on GitHub soon anyway.
Edit: Put it on GitHub now anyways.
Could you make the compact cobblestones generation configurable because generation often causes issues with some of my other mods and can become quite a nuisance when the mod is not installed leading to random air pockets underground?
In the next update I was also going to make them more rare, but thanks for the suggestion, I'll see if I can perhaps add a button. Although for short term fixes I'll upload a build that doesn't have the Compact Cobblestone world generation in.
That's another good idea, there is a config file for setting ID's, I'll try make it so if you set it to a certain ID it doesn't show up. This is going to all be in version 4.0 hopefully, (Since I'm adding a Compact Chest in the next version as well).
There is also now an IRC Channel for this mod. It's on the Esper Server (irc.esper.net) and the channel is called #CompactCrafting
ScorpioDan, Thanks for the Mod Review, I'm glad you liked it. I embedded it in the Main Post with Credits.
KasaraEm13 (And others who want to know) - In the next update, just change any of the Compact Block IDS in the config file to 999 to disable them. The config file is found it .minecraft/config/CC.cfg (Open it with notepad or any other text editor). This will be in the next update. And I confirm that I will upload 2 builds, one with World Generation and one without.
