Adds two new food preserving blocks for long term food storage. They require no maintenance and will always work at their full potential and will only be affected by regional food spoilage rates, great for dedicated servers.

Heres my patreon if you'd like to support me: Patreon

The two new containers are:

Ice Box- Preserves food at the following rates:

  • Vegetables-50% slower decay
  • Grains-75% slower decay
  • Fruits-75% slower decay
  • Proteins-50% slower decay
  • Dairy-75% slower decay

Salt Box- Preserves food at the following rates:

  • Vegetables-75% slower decay
  • Grains-50% slower decay
  • Fruits-50% slower decay
  • Proteins-75% slower decay
  • Dairy-50% slower decay

Each box has 8 slots, the same as the basket.

The best food storage in vanilla being the clay storage vessel, only has a reduced rate of 75% vegetables, and 50% for grains

The decay values can be improved further by putting the blocks in a cellar, food items with no category currently decay at their standard rate.

Includes sounds, animations and custom models for the blocks:

As far as I know, the mod still work on 1.18.15

Any chance of an update? Is this mod still working? It seems lovely

Does this mod work to preserve already made foods? Like pies and cooked meats? Or is it just for the raw ingredients?

💬 SpeedRider, Jun 3rd at 12:37 AM

it would be cool if the boxes had an ice or salt slot that needs to have ice or salt in to get these numbers.
maybe 1 ice last 1 day if the cellar is not well made or 4 days if it's.

Does this work with 1.17.10? :D

l33tmaan Yeah I have, but I just dont have the skills in c# yet  to code it in. I was actually just thinking about adding a "temporal fridge" as a possible addon that would halt spoilage at the cost of materials and storage space for people who play on servers. I would probably end up implementing an extra slot in the gui or perhaps as an alternate gui if its easier that you fill up with salt or ice and the temporal one could run off the local temporal stablilty once I figure out how to do all of that.

A fantastic mod. Ever thought about making a version that requires maintenance?

💬 Mr1k3Author, Jan 24th 2022 at 10:55 AM

Works fine in 1.16, should work through most major version changes in the future.

Travisplo, If your looking for a mod with that exact funtionality ZEEkea has a freezer that operates like that but also a bunch of other stuff, also I think medieval expansion has a similar ice thing for cellars, I just wanted to make a standalone/no-maintenance version of a food storage container for my own preference.

💬 Theisgood, Aug 30th 2021 at 10:56 PM

Leave it to you to make another amazing mod.

I honestly love the models they instantly caught my eye cause of how well detailed they are.

Great work! I am so going to try this. I will report any bugs etc.

💬 Travisplo, Aug 30th 2021 at 10:49 PM

Interesting idea, though it might be interesting if you could also make "fueled" version, in which you add Ice or Salt into them to keep them "running" at full efficiency.
