The CompactStorage Mod adds several new chests to the game to give you a significantly higher capacity storage system. The mod adds five new tiers ranging from double to six times the normal chest storage.


The chests are color coded to signify which level they are. This is both great for organization as well as aesthetics. The recipes are a bit more complicated than standard chests so you’ll have to work a little harder to earn that higher storage capacity, but the payoffs are worth it.





What makes this mod so great is you can stack and place the chests side by side which greatly reduces the amount of space your storage will take up. Get ready for incredibly vast storage in a limited space, hence the name CompactStorage.


And to make this mod that much more handy, it adds backpacks. So the same tiered system applies to the backpacks as the chests. And what’s awesome about that is it significantly increases what you can carry with you at all times while only taking up one slot in your standard inventory.

  1. Mod is broken. When I placed down a blue chest and tried to open it, the game crashed again. Sorry bud, have to uninstall.

    • try jei, you can look up the recipe there. I’ve done it before, and I’ve crafted a backpack and a chest.

  4. A great concept for a mod. However I would like to see it fully complete. when I enter the game in creative or with tmi, the only compact chest i can seem to get is one from the creative menu but this one is white and I have the option to change the size. It’s an awesome concept for a mod, finally eliminating the storage problem, and I will be very happy when this is finished in its entirety.
