Improved Containers

In 1 collection by v6
Extended and Improved UI
7 items
Adds some much needed features to containers.

This is a client- & server-side mod.
For all features to function correctly, the mod must be installed on both client and server.
If the mod is not installed on the server or if it's running an outdated version, the rename button will be grayed out.

Break (server-side)
All user-placed containers will keep their contents when broken. They will also have a different tooltip & an border around the icon so you can tell them apart.
Containers spawned during world generation will not keep their contents unless they are opened once. This lets you collect items quickly by breaking them.
Price of container includes all items inside.

Rename (server-side)
Rename your containers with the characters A-Z 0-9 . ' - ( )
Write a name or leave blank to reset, and hit enter. The container will close and update its name.

Search (client-side)
Search for item names or search for tags (category, item type & item tags) by putting in a # first. E.g. #consumable
You can find up to 32 items at a time, if the textbox turns red then you need to narrow your search.

Sort (client-side)
Items are sorted by weighted categories > rarity > name > count
Suggestions can be left in the Item sorting thread

Quick stack (client-side)
Clicking this button to attempt to fill up stacks with items from your inventory and it also attempt to fill empty slots with the same items already inside.
It will not auto stack any objects with item slots.

Supported mods
Avali, Felins, Frackin' Universe, Gardenbot2, Munari, MadTulips Spaceship Mod, Pixel Goods Store, The Viera Race of Ivalice

Bug reporting
When bug reporting, please make a new thread in the forum, unless you have the exact same problem as someone else.

Include the starbound.log files as I can't do any debugging without logs. You can find your logs in your Starbound installation under the storage folder.

Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Starbound\storage\

If you don't know which file you need to include then zip all of the log files (starbound.log, starbound.log.1 up to starbound.log.5) and upload to Dropbox.

Non-Steam version
You can download a non-Steam version that you can install into /mods/ for servers or other releases of the game on the official Starbound repository

Get 'Enhanced Storage' instead, does everything this mod does and more, have no idea why anyone even still uses this outdated mod.

Is there a way to disable the "Break" feature?

Not what I'm looking for!
This '' mod '' does not show as with terraria as the crate is called when you move with the mouse over

Please fix this chest dupe bug, as a few others have said break a chest with stuff in it and it dupes;\ no big deal but like TheNarwhal said its pretty game breaking
Royal_Starlord Jan 9 @ 11:51pm 
Break a chest, and get duplicate chests!!! :V
Obvious bug, and I would like to notify you of this. Please fix at a reasonable time frame!

This mod is great in lettings us store stuff in our pockets and all, but @Khe and the other guy are right. Breaking a chest with items in it will dupe the chest. This is great and all, but game-breaking when you're trying to play at least a little fairly.

I have the same issue that one guy has. when 'break' filled containers, they're dropping a clean empty one as well. I can understand if it's a function not working. Is there some of API documentation for the game (for modders), or do you have to wing it? >.<
also having an issue with the felin race mod maybe...for some reason, the containers dropped have a 'default' set of all the felin clothes. Also can't put empty felin containers in other containers, they get chucked out as if they were full, when they're not supposed to be.
