Update 9-1-22: New version 1.6.0 compatible with VS 1.17.1+

  • Major update to the mod. It is now a code mod due to the following:
  • Added Chest Upgrade items. They can be used (sneak+right click) on existing chests in the world to upgrade them to the next tier.
  • Altered/balanced the recipes for chests due to the addition of upgrades, 3 boards are now required in addition to the metal plate.
  • Known issue: There is a slight flicker when using an upgrade on a chest because of the replacing of the block function.
  • I did not have a lot of time to test the new upgrades. Please let me know of any issues. Thanks!

This mod adds larger storage capacity chests to the game. The recipes are simply adding a plate of the metal tier to the previous tier chest along with 3 boards in the player crafting grid. For example: the Copper Chest takes a Wooden Chest + Copper Plate + 3 boards. Every chest can be made into the "Labeled" version by adding a sign to it just like the wooden chest. Labeled chests can be upgraded to the next tier as well. These chests are based on the vanilla wooden chest so they behave and interact the same. They can be reinforced and are lockable.


  • This mod is required for both client and server.
  • Language files for English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, and Portuguese are included. Thanks to those that have contributed!
  • Compatible with Carry Capacity mod. Default configuration allows hand carrying only.

Can I make these into trunks?

For carryon compatibility, copy the carrycapacity patch file and replace references to 'carrycapacity' with 'carryon'. 

💬 PeterSanderson, Nov 8th at 9:08 PM

Carry Capacity is no longer being updated. Instead, NerdScurvy has created a fork of it called Carry On. Do you need to do anything on your end to make Extra Chests Compatible with it or do they? As of now, Extra Chests cannot be picked up or put on the back

💬 TheNiteFox, Nov 6th at 7:01 PM

@Yanazake I know this a little bit late response, but no this mod is currently not compatible with the Wood Chest Variants mod. In the sense that the chests from that mod can not be upgraded. You can still have that mod, and this and still be able to craft the regular base game chests and upgrade them. 

💬 Yanazake, Oct 25th at 12:15 PM

Does this work with "Wood Chests" mod for added variants?

💬 PeterSanderson, Sep 30th at 9:26 PM

Will this require a second patched version to allow upgraded chests to be picked up and carried via the Carry Capacity mod?


💬 Dauron, Sep 7th at 11:06 PM

Portuguese translation updated for version 1.6.0. Thank you xCoiotex

💬 colinswrath, Aug 19th at 8:30 PM


Does this not function for 1.17?

💬 Devestatio, Jul 28th at 11:10 PM

Dauron Will you be updating this to 1.17 now that the realease candidate 2 is out and the full release just around the corner? would love to see this mod continue to live on :)

💬 Buggi, May 26th at 7:55 PM

Would it be possible to upgrade chests while they are placed by right clicking with the proper metal plate? The crates mod allows you to upgrade in place and it would really help!
Also, can you add a diamond tier to both mods? 2x capacity from steel level? Or allow other mods to define new levels maybe?

💬 PeterSanderson, May 20th at 3:23 PM

I am using the latest mod version, in 1.16.4

I cannot place any of the chests on my back. They can be picked up however. Regular chests have no issues.

I see you mentioned hand carrying is default but I cannot spot a config file in mod configs to change this.

Should I just be able to edit carrycapacity.json to look like:

"op": "add",
"path": "/behaviors/-",
"file": "blocktypes/chests",
"value": {
"name": "Carryable",
"properties": {
"translation": [ 0.0625, 0, 0 ],
"rotation": [ 0, 180, 0 ],
"slots": {
"Hands": {}
"dependsOn": [ { "modid": "carrycapacity" } ]

New Version 1.5.2 for VS 1.16+

Updated the inventory GUI to display all of the contents in a chest. No more scroll bars, but wider windows. Thanks for the info Craluminum

💬 Dauron, Jan 22nd at 8:52 PM

Carry Capacity mod integration done through patching now. Separate versions no longer needed.

💬 Dauron, Feb 28th 2021 at 12:06 AM

From now on for versions of this mod: rc.1 will be the one without Carry Capacity and rc.2 will be the one with Carry Capacity config. Until I can figure something else out. I also may end up in the future only doing the Carry Capacity version or if Carry Capacity becomes integrated into Vanilla that will solve it as well.

This change will also make the 1.3.1 versions not compatible with previous 1.3.1 versions
