Feature Overview

And also helpful information about all the things in BetterStorage

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 overall. The little bar at the top right shows you how full the crate pile is.

To make crates connect, simply place one on the side of an existing crate block, which means you have to sneak while placing it; otherwise you’d open the crate’s GUI. If you place a crate on a non-crate block, even if it’s next to a crate, it won’t connect.
Storage Crates, being the stubborn blocks that they are, want to be placed together in a cube-like formation. This is so they can’t be used as cheap instant transportation. You’ll know when you can’t expand a crate pile in a certain direction if the placed crate doesn’t connect to the existing one.

Backpacks are a good way to increase the amount of items you can carry. They actually show up on your back, and take up the chest armor slot, meaning you can’t wear armor at the same time. They have 36 slots of storage space by default, a bit more than a regular chest.


Back packs

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, silver and steel. The material doesn’t affect the chest in any way other than how it looks.

Lockers and Reinforced Lockers are just a different looking alternative to regular chests, with the same amount of storage as their counterparts. 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.

Lockers and Reinforced Lockers

Lockers and Reinforced Lockers

Locks and Keys can be used to lock Reinforced Chests, Lockers and Iron Doors. Each crafted key is unique, and can be duplicated or used to craft locks, which can only be opened by that key.

Locks and Keys

Locks and Keys

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 sneaking and right-clicking empty-handed, you can actually equip, unequip or swap armor instantly.

Armor Stands

Armor Stands

The Crafting Station is an advanced crafting table that has multiple different functions. There’s an internal inventory from which items will be pulled automatically when crafting something. The 3×3 output grid is only used for certain special recipes that only work through the crafting station, like cardboard enchanting and repairing.

Cardboard Sheets can be made from paper and slimeballs. They’re used to craft Cardboard Boxes, Armor andTools. Yaaay cardboard!


Drinking Helmets are useful tools for adventurous alchemists. They can’t be crafted, but you can randomly find them in dungeons. You can also repair them using whole redstone blocks.

By crafting one with a potion on either side (you can use 2 different ones), you’ll be able to drink from it when wearing the helmet. Instead of instantly using up the potion, you’ll be able to use it 12 times for a 12th of the effect strength or duration. Drinking from it multiple times will increase the duration of the effect.

Thaumcraft Integration

BetterStorage comes with its own Thaumcraft Integration. This means all of the items have aspects associated with them. And well, then there’s the Thaumaturge’s Backpackand Thaumium Chests. After you get to a certain point in Thaumcraft, you’ll be able to unlock the “Magical Storage” research. The entry in the Thauminomicon will tell you everything you need to know.

Configuration Information

Here’s some info on BetterStorage’s config settings, for people who’re interested in adjusting or tinkering with the mod a bit.

First of all, know that pretty much every item, block or enchantment in BetterStorage can be disabled by setting the ID in the config to 0. Don’t like the cardboard stuff? Do this and it’s like it never existed! Note that this actually stops the thing from being created / registered at all, it doesn’t just disable the recipe. If a server has it, the client will need it too. If you just want to disable the recipe there’s mods which can do that.

Now to the more useful settings …

Storage Crate options

enableCrateInventoryInterface (Default: true)
Setting this to false will disable the storage crate’s inventory interface, which is what makes other blocks (hoppers, pipes, etc.) and in some cases entities (like Thaumcraft golems) able to interact with them.

enableCrateStorageInterface (Default: true)
This may be used to disable the ability for mods that support BetterStorage’s crate API to interact with crates.

Backpack options

backpackRows (Default: 4)
Controls the size of backpacks. You can change it to have from 1 row up to a double chest worth (6 rows) of items in it.

enableBackpackOpen (Default: false)
If you don’t like that you have to place down a backpack to get access to the items inside, enable this setting and you will be able to open it while equipped by simply pressing a key. Note that this is controlled by the server if you’re playing multiplayer.

backpackChestplate (Default: true)
As long as this is enabled, backpacks will take up the chestplate armor slot when equipped. They’ll work as described above: Protect from damage, take damage, and eventually even break.
When disabled, backpacks will not be equipped to the armor slot (and instead are transported to the mystical land of baloonicorns). It can be used and interacted with like normal and will still render on the player, but stop protecting from and receiving damage.

dropBackpackOnDeath (Default: true)
Not sure why anyone would disable this, but here’s an option that, when disabled, makes backpacks drop their items instead of trying to place themselves on the ground when the wearer dies.

enableBackpackInteraction (Default: true)
Again, you are a horrible person if you disable this. Just kidding. When this option is disabled, players can’t access the backpacks that other players have equipped.

Reinforced Chest / Locker options
reinforcedColumns (Default: 13)
For people who think reinforced containers are too large there’s an option to make them smaller (9 or 11 columns). Before you ask: No, there won’t be an option to make them larger or give them different sizes depending on the container’s material.

Cardboard Box options

cardboardBoxRows (Default: 1)
Changes the size of cardboard boxes. Can go up to a chest worth (3 rows) of items.

cardboardBoxUses (Default: 4)
This is the number of times cardboard boxes can be picked up when containing items before they break. Set to 0 to have them never break.cardboardBoxShowContents (Default: true)
If for some reason you want to disable the cardboard box tooltip showing its contents, you can do it using this.
Crafting Station options

enableStationAutoCrafting (Default: false)
When enabled, allows automated systems to automatically craft items by pulling them out of the bottom of the crafting station.

stationAutocraftDelay (Default: 10)
The time in game ticks (20 ticks ≃ 1 second) it takes for an item to be automatically crafted and then able to be pulled out of the crafting station. This option is primarily for people who want autocraft-enabled crafting stations, but want them to be slower for balance reasons.

Lock / Key options

lockBreakable (Default: true)
Disable this if you’d rather not have locks breakable by attacking them with tools or swords.

Miscellaneous options

enableHelpTooltips (Default: true)
If you’re not a fan of the help tooltips on items, you can disable them with this.

enableWarningMessages (Default: true)
If you’re getting annoyed by warning messages from BetterStorage in the console, you can disable them with this. Note that errors will get printed regardless. If you find something I missed that should be affected by this setting, let me know.

enableChristmasEvent (Default: true)
You monster. Don’t you dare disable this!
