Better Storage Mod 1.6.4/1.6.2/1.5.2 for Minecraft. This mod adds more storage options, like Storage Crates, Backpacks, Reinforced Chests, Lockers, Armor Stands, as well as locks and keys for its chests.
- Storage Crates
Storage Crates are another storage option, with 18 slots each, sharing their inventory with all other connected crate blocks. This type of storage is not like your neatly organized chests, items put in here will be scrambled around. Each time a player opens them, they will see a randomized selection of items, up to a double chest. You can shift-click more items in even if there’s no empty slots in the interface, as long as there’s still room. The little bar at the top right shows you how full the crate pile is.
Backpacks are a good way to carry more items around with you. They’re carried around on your back, taking up the chest armor slot, meaning you can’t wear armor at the same time. While there’s items inside, you can’t remove the backpack from the armor slot. They can store the same amount of items as a normal chest by default.
- Reinforced Chests
Reinforced Chests work just like normal chests. Compared to them, they have 12 more slots of storage and are completely resistant to creeper explosions. They can be made from different materials, like iron, gold, diamond, emerald, and if you use mods, copper, tin, zinc and silver. The material doesn’t affect the chest in any way other than how it looks.
Lockers are just a different looking alternative to regular chests, with the same amount of storage. They can connect to lockers above and below, just like chests can connect to chests next to them. To open them you have to click the side with the door, other sides won’t do anything.
- Armor Stands
Armor Stands are a great way to store and display your armor. They don’t have a GUI so the way you interact with them is by right-clicking. A simple right-click will swap the armor piece you’re currently holding with the one on the armor stand you’re pointing at. And best of all, when holding shift and right-clicking empty-handed, you can actually equip, unequip or swap armor instantly.
- Locks and Keys
Locks and Keys can be used to lock Reinforced Chests. Each crafted key is unique, and can be duplicated or used to craft locks, which can only be opened by that key. Locks are attached by right-clicking a chest, and can be removed by shift-right-clicking with a fitting key.
Locks and keys can be enchanted, giving them extra protection or abilities.
Persistance (I – V) – Makes the block harder to break and even more resistant to explosions.
Security (I – V) – Offers protection against key enchantments.
Shock (I – III) – Damages players trying to open, break or unlock the chest unsuccessfully.
Trigger (I) – Makes the block emit redstone when players try to open, break or unlock it unsuccessfully.
Lockpicking (I – V) – Opens / unlocks a locked block once, then decreases the enchantment level.
Unlocking (I – V) – Has the ability to open more locks than those which were crafted from it.
Morphing (I – V) – Permanently changes the key into the one that would fit another lock.
