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.

Volunteers Needed

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.

Future Plans

Posted: June 11th, 2019

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.

Thanks, I have been working on a bit more user-friendly system, I am trying to now take some ideas from other games I have played like ARK and some of the great ideas some other mod creators have made for those games and make a similar form for this mod. My next stage is making it more interactive with the player.

NICE IDEA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A future pro modmaker you will become, the idea of ​​apple storage, frankly, I love it!

PS: If you want to go check my mod, go there

I have thought of some ways over the night how I could improve the mod and I think stepping away from the vanilla crafting would be better and making the mod more interactive so for example, actually placing logs in a woodpile would be more satisfying than just crafting a basic block to compress it. More work yes but it will look really cool seeing the woodpile or other storage blocks fill up over time.

I have been with MCreator since like 1.5.X I mainly been doing tutorials on youtube all this time, I know how the program works so it's easy to just put my finger down and go let's do it this way, rather than learning how to figure out how to achieve something complex. My channel name is "NorthWestTrees Gaming" on YouTube I still post tutorials for MCreator once a week. Most are things the community suggests if I can figure out how to put something together in the programs current state.

I saw what are you doing for the next update. It looks awesome! :D
But how do you check if the block is rotated when adding an item to it?

It has to be done one model at a time, there are 40 models per block, each block has different stages of it being filled (10 states) and there are 4 rotations that the block can face north, east, south, and west. Each model has to be made as a block then configured using procedures to update to the right block state based on its current rotation, and filled state, it is ironically the easiest part of making the mod is set up the procedures. it's modeling, and the taking the time to add every block state in as a regular block that takes the most of the time. it's taken me two days from 12 PM to 11 PM to get just one block complete. Updates will take a long time, and I will need to take (vacation days) so I feel more motivated after each block just because of the amount of work it takes. one block takes 84 block elements.

Very nice mod, models, textures and description. This seems like a good mod :)

Thanks.
I have decided to open up a topic on my official website for snapshots and more development based features as well as downloads etc. Snapshot 1.0.1 is ready and has a working version of the model shown above.
