Iron Chests mod has chests for the various metals in vanilla minecraft with varying sizes!
This mod is open source, and may be used in any modpacks.
In 1.8.9, Iron chests seems to have lost compatibility with Inventory Tweaks- the sort buttons no longer show up. Is this an intentional change, and/or are there plans to fix it?
But even with Iron Chests installed can you still use Inventory Tweaks with normal chests and your inventory or does it just outright disable the mod?
It (was?) working fine with normal chests; just not Iron chests. (I say was since I see recent updates that I haven't had a chance to test yet.)
I'm using the 1.8 version of this, and when you use an upgrade on a chest, it changes which direction it's facing. Also when you break a chest, particles are untextured (purple/black).
Pretty sure the reason the chest rotates when an upgrade is used is because it acts like you're placing a new chest in the same spot, so it sets the direction the same way placing a chest normally would. If you have mods that add wrenches to the game, like Thermal Expansion, BuildCraft, Applied Energistics, etc., you can try shift-right clicking on the chest with a wrench to rotate the chest back the way you want.
As for the particles, does it happen with all the chest types, or just certain ones?
Am I allowed to use this mod in a public 1.8 modpack?
There seems to be a bug when upgrading a chest with the same upgrade that is already there. When I upgraded an iron chest to a gold chest I put the same upgrade on it. It seems the chest took the upgrade even though it was already a gold chest. Minecraft 1.8 recent version of Iron Chests for 1.8. Also, upgrading from a diamond chest to a crystal chest doesn't add on another single chest size to the item chests. Is it not suppose to or is it?
EDIT: Let me rephrase what I said earlier. I used a gold chest upgrade on an iron upgraded chest, then I used the same upgrade again on the very same chest after the gold upgrade had been applied therefore it is a bug since it ate my chest upgrade even though the upgrade had already been applied. Does this make any more sense than what I said last time?
Fixed in 1.8-184.108.40.2064
Thanks for the response. :) Also, thanks for the fix.
Are you updating this mod now?
No, I have my own mods to work on. I just saw the issues when working on an addon, and decided to go ahead and fix them.
ok cool. Thanks again then. :)
The Diamond, Crystal, and Obsidian chests all have the same capacity. The main differences between them are that Crystal shows just a frame with the 8 highest-quantity items floating in it, and the Obsidian chest is blast-proof.
Using the upgrade on any chest changes its orientation. Is there any way or tool to rotate the chest?
I believe you can with a wrench/crescent hammer. Not 100% sure but worth a try.
You cannot rotate them with any wrench (from the 1.7.10 Direwolf20 pack at least).
Strange, because I'm able to rotate them with various wrenches in CrackPack 220.127.116.11 for 1.7.10. I know the Quartz Wrenches from AE2 work (both Nether and Certus variants), pretty sure the Thermal Expansion Crescent Hammer works too.
