Thanks =)

In theory you can create infinite, provided you have infinite ram and disk. Practically I don't think you will run out. I have not hit a limit yet, but I have only made a few (20) slots, and didnt put that much junk in them.

I think the block will exceed the size it is allowed to get to based on items being put into the inventory rather than the number of slots.

If anyone hits a limit please let me know!

This mod is great. Thanks.
The only 2 problems I found for me was:
1 - I can't seem to create the 'Infinite Locked Chest' (I tried mese crystals, block and fragments)
2 - When moving items from your inventory over to the chest and vice versa, you can't use 'Shift-click' like normal chests.
Otherwise it's a nice addition.

I’m pretty sure the mod is as dead as a mod can be.

Thanks for the reply.
So if a mod has not been updated for a number of years, but still can be downloaded and used on the latest Minetest version, does that make it dead?
Just for my understanding. Can you suggest a mod that does the same thing and has a 'live' status?

Yes. Mods not being updated ever is a sign of a developer not developing the mod anymore. If it works: good, be happy with it. If it does not work you’re on your own.

Is there a way to add the Shift Click to move items to this.

Yes. Adding a liststring should make it shift-clickable.
