Moon_Dew No idea

💬 Moon_Dew, 2 days ago

Is this compatible with FlyingSpaten's Stonepiles?

💬 NukoSan, Sep 2nd at 6:38 PM

the standard Wooden Ladders made out of sticks?

💬 DanaCraluminum, Sep 2nd at 6:08 PM

NukoSan What ladders?

💬 NukoSan, Sep 2nd at 5:54 PM

Not sure if it's just me but ladders do stack up but become invisible when stacked up... anyone getting this? maybe a missing model?


💬 DanaCraluminum, Aug 26th at 3:07 PM

Redacted123 Someday

💬 Redacted123, Aug 26th at 3:06 PM

would it be possible to make grain pileable? for silos and such

💬 DandyDan, Aug 15th at 4:14 PM

This mod is the greatest. Personally, i think the game should have chests and baskets set to 1 slot by default. 

What I would love to see is more piles for all the varieties of nuggets(copper, bismuth, etc.) and chunks(coal, lignite,borax, etc.) that cant be piled right now.

💬 Bat_Tech419, Jul 25th at 9:33 PM

Wonderful mod BTW, I'm having visual glitches with piles of Twine not rendering.

EDIT: I have tried different Stacking capacities to these two and they are 100% fixed

"flaxfibers": {
"Enabled": true,
"UpSolid": false,
"BulkTransferQuantity": 8,
"TransferQuantity": 1,
"StackingCapacity": 144     <---------------- previous amount left a gap
"flaxtwine": {
"Enabled": true,
"UpSolid": false,
"BulkTransferQuantity": 8,
"TransferQuantity": 1,
"StackingCapacity": 24       <---------------- rendering of twine being placed is now rendering with this.

Place Every Item can't stack like piles can, though. I want to stack my quartz like stones and sticks and such.

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jul 1st at 4:21 PM

QuakingDoom use Place Every Item to place them

💬 QuakingDoom, Jul 1st at 3:52 PM

Could you please add Quartz chunks as a pileable? I have SOOOO much of it

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jun 30th at 11:33 AM

JonR It is currently intended to make some blocks pileable

💬 JonR, Jun 30th at 10:31 AM

Unfortunately, I think I've found a new bug now. After placing something down into a pile, now I'm unable to add to that pile with just the Shift + Rightclick. If you use Ctrl + Shift + Rightclick though it works fine.

💬 JonR, Jun 29th at 7:04 AM

Yeah, thanks for the incredibly quick fix! That's wonderful!

💬 CLBob, Jun 28th at 11:18 PM

Thanks for the quck fix. You rock!

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jun 28th at 2:57 PM

QuakingDoom It is complicated, but mostly because "this block should be placed into ground storage" worked too perfect

💬 QuakingDoom, Jun 28th at 2:54 PM

will test, thank you. Out of curiositiy, what caused it?

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jun 28th at 2:53 PM

JonR  QuakingDoom  Lavi  fixed

💬 JonR, Jun 28th at 10:18 AM

Hey! I just wanted to report that it seems after downloading this and starting a new world, I am unable to knap granite stones - and I'm not sure if it's exclusive to just Granite. I can knap Flint fine, though, but Granite if I scoop up a bunch of rocks, I find I am unable to actually place one down again to knap it. Instead it just adds it to a pile instead, and builds that up. Thanks for your work on this though!

💬 conninator2000, Jun 28th at 7:11 AM

God i love this mod. Thank you so much

💬 macoto_hino, Jun 27th at 4:14 PM

I was waiting for log piles to grand storage! Thanks!

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jun 27th at 3:16 PM

ArtiKs Korzhyk Added log and rope piles

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jun 3rd at 6:26 AM


💬 ArtiKs, Jun 3rd at 3:14 AM

Could you consider adding the ability to place and stack ropes? 

💬 Goiradin, Apr 14th at 12:54 AM

This either doesn't work well with 1.18 (Rc-6 currently), or there's a few visual glitches with the pack that I'd like to fix.

The stacking doesn't really work the same way that vanilla stacking of logs does. For example, if I stack cloth with this mod, it'll visually stack 12 consecutive cloths, but the count will continue to be 12. When you stack logs in-game, the stack visually increments when you add 2 logs, so in total you'll visually have 16 logs only when you have 32 logs in the stack. Changing the ModConfig also doesn't help. If I change stack count to 2 for example it simply adds 2 cloths and will reach the max visual stack at 12 still. Changing the Stack Size also has some glitchy behavior. I'm on the VS discord if you want me to try to update this for you: Axel#8407

Also, I can't seem to be able to stack blocks such as fences, ladders, gates, etc.

💬 DanaCraluminum, Mar 16th at 9:12 AM

Hopefully this mod is easier to update than Place Every Item, because here are only a few of piles, while that mod has hundreds of items

💬 Korzhyk, Dec 28th 2022 at 3:31 PM

cool. It is good.


💬 DanaCraluminum, Dec 28th 2022 at 10:28 AM

Korzhyk I'll think about adding it as soon as I get back to this mod

💬 Korzhyk, Dec 28th 2022 at 8:24 AM

Hei. What about piles for logs?


💬 DanaCraluminum, Sep 20th 2022 at 9:37 PM

I can remove pile of paintings since it is not as useful as I thought

💬 Acouthyt, Sep 20th 2022 at 2:40 PM
Patch 0 (target: game:blocktypes/wood/painting.json) in morepiles:patches/piles/ofblocks/blocktypes-wood-painting.json failed because supplied path /behaviors/0 is invalid: The json path /behaviors/0 was not found. No such element 'behaviors' at the root path
So far the only error I've had in 1.17, and it's not game-breaking during normal gameplay.
💬 DanaCraluminum, Aug 26th 2022 at 11:39 AM

I have just tested it on 1.17.0-rc.7 and only some piles don't work (wooden fence pile as example), I will mark it as working in 1.17

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jul 24th 2022 at 7:19 AM


I won't add nugget piles.

To prevent blocks from placing, you need to stay on any block and then place block under yourself, to place sign pile for example

💬 Kirona, Jul 24th 2022 at 3:01 AM

Craluminum Any chance at piles for nuggets?


EDIT: Also, what does "prevent block placing" mean? How do I do this so I can stack these items?

💬 DanaCraluminum, Jul 18th 2022 at 12:17 PM

Does anyone have any ideas what other piles to add?

💬 SingABrightSong, Nov 20th 2021 at 5:12 AM

Would you be insulted if I stuck to v1.04? Some of the additions seem a bit extraneous.

💬 Theisgood, Nov 3rd 2021 at 1:56 AM

Just coming by to say I love this mod and a minor question.

Will I need a updated version of IWPEI for the latest version of this mod or will it be fine :)

Lol edit I see you did not add any new items for the latest update. 

So yes I was just coming to say great mod! Can't wait to see what other piles you make. :D
