Latest file for v1.18.8: 1-click install

[.NET 7 ---- Version 1.18.8+]

Pileful changes the mechanics of pile creation, as well as taking and putting items into piles.

This is an initial release, as of yet untested in multiplayer and in all the cornercases of singleplayer. Note that peat is unaffected due to legacy class separation.

  •  You can now insert bulk amounts when creating a pile. In vanilla, using the bulk modifier (default key Ctrl) to create a new pile only uses 1 item, this results in further bulk operations always ending up with an odd number of items in the pile, so 1->5->9 etc. This is fixed.

  •  You can now interact with piles while holding tools, or holding nothing at all. In vanilla, you can only take out items from a pile while holding a tool, and you can only insert items if you are holding the right type of item in your active hotbar slot.


  • You can now toggle a Pileful bulk mode, default hotkey: Z, to create, insert, and extract full itemstacks into and out of piles.


  • You can now create - and insert into - piles using multiple different itemstacks in your inventory.


  • You can now insert into piles with itemstacks being prioritized from smallest to largest, but always leaving the active hotbar slot for last, to enable rapid mass pile creation without having to juggle and move between hotbar slots.

Nope never had any crashes something tells me by the way you said that i was lucky XD

Should be compatible - but you won't get any pileful functionality with the stonepiles.

💬 Moon_Dew, Sep 22nd at 9:41 AM

Is this compatible with FlyingSpaten's Stonepiles?

💬 crittan, Sep 21st at 11:57 AM


Thank you! I had a feeling there might be some odd behavior with these - as noted below I don't use the placeable block piles. Upon testing I encountered several errors, so I am glad you (apparently?) didn't experience any crashes.

I have uploaded a new version that should fix this.

found a small bug that occours when useing with the block piles like dirt gravel ect you can't take any block out of the pile with this mod meaning to get the blocks back out you have to slowly punch the pile till it breaks.

As far as I can tell it seems compatible, and I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be as long as items stackable in piles are unaffected by Place Every Item.

💬 Ryuu, Sep 19th at 2:11 AM

Will this be compatible with the mod Place Every Item
? I'm looking to implementing it on my server if you can vouch for its compatibility being a "yes".

💬 crittan, Sep 18th at 2:43 PM


Thank you! In my initial testing I did not encounter this, since items can still be picked up when you hold an equivalent item in your active hotbar slot - so that is a temporary workaround - which is unfortunately exactly what I did in testing it, and so failed to notice the problem.

I have uploaded a new version that should fix this. Please let me know if you find anything else!

💬 Inabikari, Sep 17th at 5:38 PM

Currently there's a bug where you can't pick up bowls/crocks (anything stored in a quarter of a block?) by rightclicking. You can only retrieve them by breaking.

💬 crittan, Sep 17th at 1:03 PM


Not a replacement, probably mostly* compatible. More piles adds more pileables - these new piles still use the same mechanics that Pileful changes, so it should be (almost?) fully compatible - and I have yet to find any bugs (except for the bugged cloth models, but take that up with Dana).

* I haven't actually checked any of the placeable block-type pileables from more piles, because they are in my opinion janky as heck so I don't use them.

is this similar/replacement for or is it compatible?
