Has something changed in how the game allows you to place chests?
Haven't been playing MC for a few months, but decided to restart a new SPS world. I've got as far as making my AutoFish farm, and started to build the sorter train to separate all the stuff. Like most sorters this should feed different types into a bunch of double chests placed in a row. I have built 4 of these in the past, but now the game will not let me close space the chests and seems to need at least 1 block seperation regardless of alignment.
This is going to really complicate my sorters if this is how it is from now on.
In the upcoming 1.13 release, chests of the same type will be able to be placed side-by-side without connecting to each other automatically. I believe to accomplish this you'd have to use shift-click to place it.
