About More Blox
More Blox is a store compression mod that adds more blocks like haybales, melon blocks, and kelp blocks. You can craft the blocks using one chest in the center of the crafting table then surrounding it with the type of item you wish to store. This mod should work on multiplayer and singleplayer. I will be adding more resources in the future to compress. I have also added beta language versions for German, Russin, Polish, French, Spanish and the default English. I could use any help translating in those languages if you happen to know any of them fluently. I have been using Google Translate for the beta build but could use proper translation in the future.
Crafting N Consumption
Unlike vanilla Minecraft crafting the storage block will consume one chest, this is a cheap cost but makes it still a reason to think about how you spend your resources in survival. This compresses the items from 64 to 512 items per one stack. You can deconstruct the blocks by placing them in a craft table slot either the 2x2 or 3x3 crafting station to get back your resources.
Version and Builds
I will be adding more content with even more custom models in the future. Even though its in beta its stable to use with Minecraft 1.12.2. I found no issues when testing however if you come across any please let me know.
I am looking for some people that can help me translate the mode into other languages. If you are interested in helping translate the mod into proper words please let me know in the comments so I can get in touch. Translate software is extremely inaccurate as I have now realized and I would sooner wait for help from the community to translate then by a small chance make something offensive by using an application.

I will be working on a new concept that I came up with that I have called interactive blocks. The idea is to have a visual indication of how much items you have in a given block, I have been working hard to implement this new system, I started to work on a simple woodpile to test this concept out on and so far it works great I have no issues rotating the blocks and you can right-click the block with an item in your hand, for example, acacia wood to add it to the acacia woodpile. The model will update showing one new log or if you want to remove the log to use you can right-click the block with any item or empty hand that is not used to store in that block. I have added sound effects for when adding wood and everything is UV Mapped and scaled nicely.
I am not sure when the next update will be coming out It has proven to take a long time to just make a fully working acacia woodpile two days to be exact. I will be publishing snapshots when I reach a major point of completion of a new block. You can get beta snapshots on my website forum post below.
Development / Snapshots / Blog
If you can't wait until the offical release and want to test the mod out for your self I have snapshots available when I reach a stable point in the development. I will be focusing development on my own website from now on, you can get your hands on snapshots, development news, and a full list of planned features I will be slowly adding to the mod.
