Latest file for v1.19.4: 1-click install

This mod adds a small chest with only 3 slots, but with nearly perptual food storage ability.  Spoilage is turned down to 0.01 for all types, allowing it to preserve many food types for an extremely long time. Foods that don't have a nutrition value are currently not supported (this includes some raw foods from other mods).

The intent of this item is specifically to improve the experience of the occasional player on dedicated servers.  While it isn't an optimal choice for all of one's food storage needs, it can hold some backup food and hopefully avoid the frustration of coming back to find all of your food turned to rot. 

I recommend creating a rule or limit to how many of these players are allowed to have on a server.  When used in large numbers it could definitely ruin some of the food storage gameplay, so judicious use is recommended.


Inspired by and partially based on Preservation Mod. Thanks to Mr1k3.

Hey guys, yeah anything without nutritional value seems to not be affected by the chest unfortunately.  If you can't eat it directly without doing something else to it first, it's just not going to work right now.

Heya! Piggybacking on the comment by OpPointBaker, raw aged meats from the Expanded Foods mod aren't affected. Additionally, vanilla raw chicken eggs aren't affected. Expanded Foods might not have them marked as "protein" which would be weird.

There's gotta be a way to affect "All" items instead of specifying every little category of food that the chest works on. No idea what it would be if it did exist.

Just a heads up. Love the mod concept!

💬 OpPointBaker, Apr 1st at 12:08 AM

Just a heads up, I'm using this with Primitive Survival. The raw meats & raw whole fish added by Primitive Survival are not getting the preservation boost that vanilla raw meats are getting. The cooked/cured/smoked/baked/jerked meats all get the normal boost to spoil times. Just not the raw versions. 

Not sure why, just figgured I'd let you both know. 

Thanks for the mod!

It should now work with raw meat, and I added more languages. Kaofan

Is it suposed to look like a medieval toilet?

💬 Kaofan, Sep 18th 2023 at 12:18 PM


Could you add an option so that raw food can also have a longer expiration date? As in cooked meat

When will you introduce my Polish version?

Doesn't work with red meat.

This is a great mod and I like the idea of adding fuel slot for snow, lake ice or glacier ice.
If adding fuel to the container, I wonder if you could do the same thing for vessels?

Love this Mod! A suggestion I would have too, is a way to add compatiblity with the Trade o Mat Mods. so we can have trade o mates that are better for food selling. (that and a Black trade o rug would be wicked cool)

A suggestion for Balance would be for the chest to have a fule slot that you'd have to fill with snow or ice.

Seiondo  macoto_hino  If you're looking for a mod that for that kind of thing, check out ZEEkea  It has a freezer that can be sustained by adding ice.  I might try to copy that kind of functionality in the future, but for now it's not what this mod is inteded for.  It's intended to benefit players on dedicated servers who can only play occasionally.  They wouldn't be able to refill the ice while they're offline so it would largely negate the benefit of the mod.

💬 Maestro, Jan 24th 2023 at 3:45 PM

I'd love to see this require glacial ice, and consume it over time, reverting to normal chest preservation levels when the ice is melted.  That would be a great addition as a resource sink.

Very nice mod.
It will be useful for a long time as the capacity increases as the manufacturing technology improves, from the Stone Age, to the Copper Age, to the Bronze Age, to the Iron Age, and finally to the Steel Age.
Maybe there could be a Deep Storage Chest that can consume some kind of material (e.g. ice or salt) and store it longer?
