This brilliant mod by cpw adds a variety of different chests to the game, all with different capacities. It scales from copper chests (if you have a forge mod that adds copper) all the way to diamond chests!
Iron Chests Mod 1.8.9, 1.7.10 and 1.7.2 gives a diversity of new chests to the game in addition to iron chests. All are better than vanilla chests in that they have more capacity and can be placed next to each other. In addition, they remain as single chests when adjacent to one another, eradicating the necessary 1-block gap seen with double chests. Only obsidian chests have increased blast resistance.
Lets run through the chests and their different capacities.
The lowest tier, crafted like so:
It holds a little bit less than a frequent large chest. Remember that this chest is only available if you have a forge mod which adds copper.
Crafted like so:
Holds just as much as a frequent large chest.
Only available if you possess a Forge mod that offers silver. Crafted like so:
Holds a bit more then the Iron chest.
This is when the chests become a bit more insane than before, crafted like so:
Holds about two times as much as the iron chest.
The top tier of the chests, expensive to craft but surely worth it!
The Crystal Chest!
This one is very cool! Holds the similar amount as the diamond chest but with a special feature, you can see what items are inside without even opening up the chest!
That wraps up all of the chests, but it doesn’t halt there! There is one more thing that this mod offers, Chest Upgrades! For instance, right click with a iron to gold upgrade on a iron chest and it will be instantly turned into a gold chest, handy! To craft them, all you do is take the sort of metal you’re upgrading from and then surround it into the metal you’re upgrading to in the crafting table of the game.
That wraps up the review! I think this mod is so amazing and a brilliant idea. Highly recommend for you to give this one a try. It’s very handy, perfect for compact storage.
