Better Chests adds enhanced chest features to the game.

Better Chests is safe to add/remove at any time. If Better Chests is removed from your game, and any chest has more than 36 items in it, you'll have to grab items from the top to get to the rest of them.

I regularly test Better Chests alongside other mods which affect chests. It also has integrations with some other mods (noted below).

Full Integration

  • Automate - Categorized Chests and Filter Items makes it so that Automate can only push items into chests that you choose.
  • Better Crafting - Craft from Chest will open a Better Crafting Page that will include items from all chests, with the Craft from Chest feature enabled, within range.
  • Horse Overhaul - SaddleBags can be configured as their own chest type. If you limit the range of Craft from Chest and/or Stash to Chest, it will use the distance to your Horse.
