[WIP] packed_things mod: compress your blocks

by scottvee » Thu Jan 12, 2017 09:58

Hi. MineTest has really come of age, and I finally got a chance to start coding some mods. Basic stuff to begin with. This mod lets you pack your cobble, dirt and sand by a factor of 9 into Packed Cobble, Dirt and Sand, then again into 2x Packed Cobble, Dirt and Sand, and again ... up to Ultra Packed blocks containing 9^8 of your original blocks. Inspired by some old Minecraft mods. I was playing MineTest and my inventory ran out, and I wished this was in the game, so here it is.

Download link: https://github.com/scottvee/packed_thin ... master.zip
GitHub wiki: https://github.com/scottvee/packed_things/wiki

Some images:

Packed sand series:

A few others are in the works, but these account for most of our inventory so I started here. The packed blocks all act as stone and get increasingly hard to break.

Just creating an Ultra Packed block is a personal challenge, since each one takes 9^8 = 43,046,721 blocks to make! Anyway, this was made to save chest space. Enjoy. ;-)

Thanks. I added a download link from the Github page, just click and unpack the zip file to your Minetest/mods folder.

Update: I added packed series for snow, ice, desert_sand, desert_cobble and gravel.

I also added a config file so you can enable just the ones you want to use, and after moving each series of blocks to its own include file, any of the packed items you don't want to use, their code is never included at all.

Packed gravel:

Packed ice:

Packed snow:

This really helps compact your inventory when on a deep mining trip. With unified_inventory for example, you can select the Packed Gravel recipe, choose "Move to Crafting: All", then click the output slot to pack your gravel. Back home I have a few autocrafters that make compressed_cobblestone -> packed_cobble -> packed_cobble_x2 -> packed cobble_x3, so a whole chest full of gravel ends up fitting in less than a stack of blocks. ;-)
