Hello, this mod adds barrels to minetest. Barrel is something like chest, but 1 barrel can store infinite amount of 1 type of item. This is very useful when we have large amounts of cobblestone or other things. Barrels look like this:

To insert items into the barrel you must put item to hand and rightclick them on barrel.
To get items back you must leftclick (punch) barrel, if you hold shift during the punching barrel you get the stack of items from the barrel. To find out how much items are in the barrel you must craft barrels checker. You can made it from barrel and control logic unit from technic mod. The barrels checker look like this:

To use it you must leftclick(punch) them barrel.
Crafting recipes:

The idea sounds nice. But why do you call it "barrel"? I thought barrels are used for storing liquids? Why don't you give them a formspec where the amount of items is stored? Or a description?

Where he got the idea from is a mod in FTB. They are called barrels in FTB. Also, why do you need a formspec? This is used for storing mass amounts of one kind of item, however when you point at them it should say how many items there are in it.

Barrels don't need formspec because in fact have only 1 slot. To get items we only must punch barrel. It is very comfortable. The info about items in barrel is stored in metadata. One meta stores the item amount, other stores item name so in barrel w can't storing tools but items in barrel use a very small amount of memory. The name barrel is from similar minecraft mod.

Can you make this mod not dependent on technical? I'm having issues with that mod. :\ sorry for the trouble.

The reason I ask, I removed technic Dependant and it gives me the item, but it gives it to me three blocks under the ground..
