The layout of this post will change to a more catchy and informative version when the actual release comes near, but for now this has to do it.
For the beings among you who complain about adfly: Alternative
- Get possibly the latest universal version of Forge for Minecraft 1.4.7.
- Copy Forge into your "minecraft.jar".
- Create a folder "mods" in the minecraft folder.
- Put the downloaded Magic Chest zip file there. Aaaand Done!
Bugs should be posted as an issue in the repository on Github. Suggestions can be posted there or, of course, here in the thread. Don't be shy to tell me minor bugs or make suggestions that may be already in the concept. My artist also asks you to criticize his work.
Me and my team want to make Magic Chest a high quality mod, but this takes time. If you want to know how it goes, you can check my Twitter feed @marcopennekamp, the repository (mentioned above) and of course this thread. Magic Chest is and will be an open source mod, but it still means that redistribution outside this thread is not allowed. You may however link to the adf.ly download link.
The official alpha release will include some upgrades and softwares, sorting and filtering, as well as a more or less tested server version.
Next on my list: More Upgrades. Stay tuned!
You may call this credits, but these people are or were responsible for Magic Chest:
Aero96 - That's me, folks. Coordination/Programming.
HotheadHoncho - Graphics, good graphics.
Hexicube - Programming. Currently idle.
Now for the actual "description", craft this (you can use different wood types for different appearances):
There is more like filtering and sorting, but it should be self-explanatory for now!
And last but not least, for nostalgic reasons, the original Magic Chest description:
V0.9.1 for Beta 1.7.3
The Magic Chest is an intelligent chest, which can do many many things to provide you with comfort!

If you want to improve the presentation of Magic Chest you can make videos that show the functionality of Magic Chest or the super awesome construction you have created! They may be added to the "Preview" section.
To craft the magic chest you need a chest or some wood, iron, and redstone. Simply follow these blueprints to make your very own Magic Chest!
First step: Make a Magic Lock
Our Engineers in the labs could make a Magic Lock with 1GB storage size. According to our awesomeness nearly all of the data storage is reserved for the source code. 16MB is reserved for extensions.
The Magic Lock is the heart of the Magic Chest and will turn any chest into an intelligent one. Its high-tech redstone wiring gives the possibility to detect any item in a small radius around the chest and the built-in teleportation unit will get all of them.
Let´s have a look at the blueprints:
Second step: Fix the Magic Lock on the chest
With our patented silicon based technology, the Magic Lock will do the fixing process automatically and secure itself onto the chest. (
The lock can even build a chest out of 8 pieces of wooden planks on it´s own and directly make a Magic Chest.
Have a look at the two blueprints:
As explained before, your Magic Chest can take up anything that has been dropped on it.
Don´t you wish your wood was this intelligent?
Every intelligent chest should be able to filter incoming items.
Your Magic Chest can! The filtering methods are chooseable in the GUI with a button.
Our Engineers made a simple filtering system for big storing solutions. Just put an item in the bottom-right slot of the chest, make sure that no item of a different type is in there and enjoy the full automated filtering!
Per Row filtering
To fit more complicated requirements we developed a per row filtering system. Put an item in the last slot of each row and make sure that no different item is in this row. Every last slot has to be filled! Now you can enjoy the per row filtering!
To make the furnace software more comfortable we decided to add a filtering especially for these purposes.
The furnace filtering filters material into the first row, fuel into the second and the third row will contain your smelted items!
Many years of researching gave us the talent to develop a chest, which sorts it´s content stand-alone. And it recognizes two or more stacks and puts them together, if the slot capability suffices.
The Magic Chests full item mappings allow the chest to sort it´s content alphabetically, by ID or even by Type! You can choose your favorite sorting method in the GUI, where the sort button, which sorts everything, is as well!
Usefulness: (Integer.MAX_VALUE * Integer.MAX_VALUE / 100)%!
Sorts the contents by Type, extremely USEFUL!
Sorts the contents by ID, ascending (1 first).
Sorts the contents by Alpha, A - Z.
Are you bored of always destroying a chest to get the contents quickly, then replacing the chest?
Well no more will you have to! When you power the chest with redstone, it drops all the items!
Note: This only works with DropX Software, which was introduced in 0.9
A software is an extension for the Magic Chest. You put it into the major or minor slot of the chest. You might ask how you can actually put a whole DVD into a simple lock...well, our clever engineers made some compression technology! It's 100 times more effective than the Base64 algorithm! You wonder what software compression technology has to do with a physical DVD?
It´s Minecraft, man. Or did you lost the link to reality and found another world in a game?
The DVD is the base for all softwares. By itself its useless, but it's a storage device for the other softwares.
Furnace Software [Major]
The Furnace Software adds an interface to interact with nearby furnaces. It has the awesome capability to maintain furnaces in range.
Just put the material you want to smelt in row 1, the fuel in row 2 and the product will appear in row 3 of the chest.
Quantum Software [Major]
The quantum software gives access to a network of chests, which all share the same content. These contents are safe and can be accessed from anywhere in the world! There are five networks selectable in the GUI, but our engineers are working on allowing infinite amounts of channels!
Remember that the software uses Quantum storage, which is unavailable in the Nether. Instead, the inventory will exhibit wild behavoiur.
Save System updated. If you have problems converting to the new one (e.g. missing data), read the troubleshoot section.
Music Software [Major]
Note Blocks are a powerful music composing device in MineCraft, but they take up a lot of space. Our scientists found that 95% of a note block is made up of wood and can easily simulate the remaining 5% in some new software!
Every slot in the chest represents a note. An item stack can have 1-25 items which represents a note. The type of the item (Dirt, Stone, Sand, Glass, Wood) represents the instrument. You can set the speed of the music in the GUI, where 1 is the fastest.
A full (64) item stack restarts the music.
It works like the Note Block !
Repair Software [Major]
The repair software has the awesome capability to repair tools and armors slowly, by relying on specially adapted nano technology! They can repair any damaged item from Diamond Swords to Fishing Rods! (
The upgraded software features new nanobots which can repair items three times as fast!
Farming Software [Major]
*better scanning explanation will follow*
The Farming Software does several things. It plants seeds, harvests crops, harvests reed, duplicates flowers and collects seeds from wild grass!
The blocks around the chest and above the chest are scanned, so it looks like this:
C = Chest S = Scanned Chest level: SSS SCS SSS Above chest: SSS SSS SSS
To harvest crops and plant seeds place the chest on the dirt level.
S = Stone Hoe
D = DVD
Crafting Software [Major]
Ever got tired of crafting masses of the same item? Want to create an automated factory?
We did! Use the brand new crafting software!
Just place the desired item in the bottom-right slot of the chest, and it will start crafting this type of item, if there is enough material.
R = Redstone
D = DVD
W = Workbench
R D W
Miner Software [Major]
The Miner software automatically mines all blocks above it. It has the same speed as the player and uses tools. Combine it with vortex software to get the best results!
Healer Software [Major]
The healer software heals you when you walk near it, but you have to put in food first. What good is a chest full of food if you have to get it out again?
Cloaking Software [Minor]
You are a mysterious person and want to hide your chest? Well, use the cloak software to achieve this!
Just place a block in the bottom-left slot, and enjoy your new skinned chest!
DropX Software [Minor]
The DropX Software simply allows the chest to drop all items on redstone current!
We did this change, because of some people losing their diamonds in lava, because an evil player (which is not possible
R = Redstone
D = DVD
R RDR R
Scanner Software [Minor]
The Scanner Software takes items out of the player´s inventory. Just put the desired item in the bottom-right slot and it will automatically store all items of that type!
But be careful: It does not scan the quick access bar!
Destroyer Software [Minor]
It destroys every item which comes into the chest. If there is an item in the left-bottom slot, only items of this type are destroyed. Your intelligent bin!
Vortex Software [Minor]
The vortex software turns the chest into a wild vortex, which pulls in all items within a 3 Block radius into the chest.
The newer vortex software has upgraded pumps...so the range has doubled!
Immunity Software [Minor]
The immunity software makes the chest almost complety immune to any explosions, because of the obsidian powered protection matrix. You can even use it as a creeper wall!
For the work I've put into Magic Chest, I would appreciate some donations. These aren't required to download the mod but would be nice anyways.
Hexicube also helped a lot with new Softwares and bug-fixing, so please also donate to him, if you feel generous!

Issues with quantum software
If you have renamed your world once, converting to new save system will probably fail, because of different folder and world names. To fix this, rename the world name part of the files in mod/MagicChest/ to the folder name.
