@DanaCraluminum Thank you for the response. The closest option I can find in the config is StackingCapacity but that doesn't change how the stacks are rendered. They still show 64 blocks.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 16th at 2:22 PM

Rudwark There is config for this

💬 Rudwark, Jun 16th at 2:10 PM

Could you change the rendering of cubic and log piles to show 8 blocks (without changing the default stack size)?

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 3rd at 6:10 AM

Zevon Someday

💬 Zevon, Jun 2nd at 7:39 PM

Can you add nugget and flint piles? 

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Apr 14th at 7:31 PM

Novantis  Shift + Ctrl + Right-click

💬 Novantis, Apr 14th at 5:57 PM

I can't seem to place stone piles (just single stone on ground)? What combination of keys allows this?

Also flax on ground is visually bugged (invisible). Not using place every item if that's relevant.

💬 AndyAndY, Mar 23rd at 11:01 PM

I made a mod that prevents you from placing sticks and bones, which lets their piles work. For anyone who wants it, here's a link.

💬 Roidgy, Feb 24th at 12:20 AM


I can't seem to get this fork to work, still placing sticks like normal.

💬 Iver, Feb 16th at 8:48 AM

Is it compatible with 1.19.3 DanaCraluminum?

💬 XavierDare, Feb 8th at 10:12 PM

On one hand, i understand it is your mod and you have final say..... that being said, i feel like removing stackable sticks and bones from your mod because vanilla added in the ability to place 4 tiny sticks in a hole is absolute the wrong decision. stacks of sticks are easier to use then having 4 tiny sticks take up an entire block space. i say give the best of both worlds and have version with and one without the sticks. 

💬 CuroAmarSalus, Jan 28th at 8:24 PM

DanaCraluminum I run six servers- universally the players in each all rely on this mod for stacking sticks and bones. While you may no longer support it (this is your mod, that is your choice, it is valid, and I won't criticize you for it), this mod is specifically used for stacking sticks, bones, twine, and flax. I don't host 1.19.x servers due to server crashes and bugs, but once the servers becomes stable we'll have to use my fork for it in the long run.

It seems this mod causes some interactivity issues in 1.19.x variants. If there's anything I can do to assist with debugging, let me know.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 28th at 8:47 AM

CuroAmarSalus This is not a fix, it doesn't worth updating in such way

💬 CuroAmarSalus, Jan 27th at 8:27 PM

1.19.x compatible fork of this mod that has Sticks + Bones added back in (Pit Kilns are broken):

💬 Hydromancerx, Jan 24th at 9:45 AM


Yeah when not using the More Piles mod I am able to Bone Knap (just like stone knapping).

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 24th at 7:37 AM

Hydromancerx Does it happen without More Piles installed?

💬 Hydromancerx, Jan 24th at 7:09 AM

So the Butchering mod uses LShift + RMouse for Bone Knapping while placing bones in this also uses it. Could you change it to LCtrl + LShift +RMouse by defaul please. Thanks in advance!

💬 TheEngineerGuy, Jan 22nd at 2:32 PM

Really really sad you stopped with the Sticks. This saved a lot of space in my chests and looked very good. I would love if you bring back the stack of sticks. Please consider doing it. I was really loveing it.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 19th at 7:21 PM

IanDig I don't have any plans to keep piles for already ground storable items in vanilla. But I totally would expand block piles

💬 IanDig, Jan 19th at 5:59 PM

I would still prefer this mod over the new vanilla ability to only place 4 per block

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jan 8th at 7:56 PM

SecretFoxfire I will remove stick and bone piles in the next update, because main goal of the mod was to end up in vanilla, even if you can store only 4 things on ground

💬 SecretFoxfire, Jan 8th at 7:00 PM

1.19-rc6 seems to have broken part of this mod. Previously we had big stacks of sticks and bones on my server, but when we logged in after updating from rc5 to rc6, suddenly they were just single placed sticks/bones, no more piles. We can no longer place them in piles. I poked at a vanilla copy of rc6 and it looks like we can now place sticks and bones on the ground as part of the vanilla game, and presumably this is overriding the piles. Not sure if there's any way you can fix that. I much prefer being able to stack them - placing them takes up so much space! (Thanks for the great mods by the way. I think we really should be able to place and pile everything in the game. It's perfectly realistic, after all!)

💬 AphoticAri, Jan 8th at 1:29 PM


I believe Aksyl is referring to the Butchery mod, as it adds bone "knapping" (or "carving" as the author puts it) to craft rudimentary pickaxes and bone arrows.


For what it's worth, More Piles has a config file you can edit to disable the pile placement for bone, which should allow it to be placed for knapping/carving again. :) Hope it helps!

Cheers everyone!!

💬 SpearAndFang, Jan 3rd at 8:00 PM

Primitive Survival does NOT allow knapping with bone.  You might be talking about Ancient Tools or Survival Expanded, idk.

💬 Aksyl, Jan 3rd at 4:47 PM

I've noticed an issue between this and primitive survival (I have yet to diagnose another mod having some effect in the combo)

Primitive Survival allows knapping with bone, and this should allow stacking, but I think they both are cancelling the other's actions out.

Now, I don't need to knap bone in most of my games, so really I'm only being prevented from stacking bone, but still. I don't see anyone else experiencing this issue, however which may indicate another culprit.

Maltiez Someday

💬 Maltiez, Dec 22nd 2023 at 10:10 AM

Flint piles?

💬 BraniyaKz, Dec 5th 2023 at 7:23 AM

ladders place invisible, whether used with vanilla ladders, or with vanilla variants installed. Can no see ladder piles, so I lost 'em after leaving a pitfall. :/ Ah well.

Edit: Went into testing. Chute sections also invisible. Using the 1.18 verion.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Nov 19th 2023 at 9:24 PM

SuperTeeJ The latest version requires 1.19

💬 SuperTeeJ, Nov 19th 2023 at 8:51 PM

Was loving this mod before. Downloaded the new version and now getting an issue with the mod saying "Unable to resolve mod dependencies." but looking here I'm not seeing any other mod dependencies. Please let me know since I really love this mod to add extra decor to my markets and houses

💬 TRexTheHunter, Nov 17th 2023 at 5:39 PM

Where have you been all that time! Thanks for updating this mod!

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Nov 11th 2023 at 1:52 PM

DumbLance What game version and mod version?

💬 DumbLance, Nov 11th 2023 at 1:21 AM

Is there a new dependant file? everytime i try to use the mod it crashes..

💬 saxfone, Oct 13th 2023 at 1:37 PM

Sublime mod; should be integrated into vanilla

💬 Guimoute, Oct 11th 2023 at 8:41 PM

Hi Dana! This is a lovely mod. Cloth is flying with the default pile size of 32, even though it's configurable by anyone you might want to change it to 48 in the default config file of the mod. ;) See pictures

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Sep 22nd 2023 at 11:40 AM

Moon_Dew No idea

💬 Moon_Dew, Sep 22nd 2023 at 9:41 AM

Is this compatible with FlyingSpaten's Stonepiles?

💬 NukoSan, Sep 2nd 2023 at 6:38 PM

the standard Wooden Ladders made out of sticks?

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Sep 2nd 2023 at 6:08 PM

NukoSan What ladders?

💬 NukoSan, Sep 2nd 2023 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?


💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Aug 26th 2023 at 3:07 PM

Redacted123 Someday

💬 Redacted123, Aug 26th 2023 at 3:06 PM

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

💬 DandyDan, Aug 15th 2023 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 2023 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.

💬 QuakingDoom, Jul 1st 2023 at 4:24 PM

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

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jul 1st 2023 at 4:21 PM

QuakingDoom use Place Every Item to place them

💬 QuakingDoom, Jul 1st 2023 at 3:52 PM

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

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 30th 2023 at 11:33 AM

JonR It is currently intended to make some blocks pileable

💬 JonR, Jun 30th 2023 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 2023 at 7:04 AM

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

💬 CBob, Jun 28th 2023 at 11:18 PM

Thanks for the quck fix. You rock!

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 28th 2023 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 2023 at 2:54 PM

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

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 28th 2023 at 2:53 PM

JonR  QuakingDoom  Lavi  fixed

💬 JonR, Jun 28th 2023 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 2023 at 7:11 AM

God i love this mod. Thank you so much

💬 macoto_hino, Jun 27th 2023 at 4:14 PM

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

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 27th 2023 at 3:16 PM

ArtiKs Korzhyk Added log and rope piles

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jun 3rd 2023 at 6:26 AM


💬 ArtiKs, Jun 3rd 2023 at 3:14 AM

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

💬 Goiradin, Apr 14th 2023 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.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Mar 16th 2023 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.


💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 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?


💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 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.
💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 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

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 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?

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 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
