Magic Storage Box (Linked Storage) - Out of Date

MOD ID 1787324286

Warning: I've seen people mentioning that this mod is having problems on their servers. While I originally intended to support it fully, I've completely lost interest in it. If I find the time, I may update it and spend sometime working on it. Sorry.

If you enjoy this mod, please rate it.

How it Works:

The magic storage chest is a synchronized storage container that allows for access to a common item pool anywhere on a map. It is a general inventory and holds any item. Works with stacking mods.
  • Multi-Channel: Boxes of a certain channel are linked (currently 3 channels).
  • Color Changing: Boxes will change color to signify the currently selected channel.
  • Adjustable number of slots
  • BlackList items so they cannot be placed in the container. If a BlackListed item is put in the container, it is automatically dropped onto the ground.
  • Dupe Proof
  • Boxes Destroyed by a tribe member does not drop contents unless it is the last of it's channel.
  • If the box is the last on it's channel and the channel is changed, the items are dropped.
  • Boxes are private across tribes (not individual owners).
  • If you join another tribe, the contents of your boxes will be overwritten with the tribes.
  • For PvP, if an enemy breaks your magic box, all contents for the channel are dropped regardless of number of boxes left.

Default Crafting Requirements:

See Crafting/Engram Overrides Section Below on How-To Adjust these.
  • Available as Learnable Engram at Level 1 and Costs 0 Engram Points
  • Cost 1 Wood to Craft
  • Craftable inside inventory
  • Requires no fuel or power to operate

Known Issues:
  • Folders do not replicate across boxes
  • The default action for the box is setting it to Channel 1 therefore [E] does not access inventory, you must press [F] instead.
  • Another player viewer a remote linked chest will see items replicate/duplicate until they close are reopen the box. This is a graphical issue only and duping cannot occur.

Future Plans:
  • Whitelist - Make it easier to define the items that CAN be put in this storage
  • Add configurable limit on number of boxes per channel via INI.
  • Add configurable number of channels via INI.

BaseCraftingResourceRequirements should be adjusted to the desired quantity of a particular resource.

I think this mod might be unstable by now, I haven't updated it in a long time. Maybe I should open-source it to see if another mod dev wants to grab it.

I've had the config set for 500 slot item count, but am losing anything I pull once it gets to 300 slots used. Am I missing something? Is it only a problem when pulling items into the box?

@lfinx @Grog Grueslayer I was wondering if I was the only one. A couple days ago, my server crashed because I had a Magic Box on my Bronto's platform saddle and I had the idea "Oh I can just keep harvesting, use the S+ Transfer tool and put everything in the box, change channels on the Magic Box, repeat. Well the first time I used the transfer tool on the Bronto to the Magic Box my server crashed giving me some error I hadn't seen before. Then I LITERALLY just crashed doing what lfinx did.

I love this mod, but I guess I'll have to remove it for now

@Ifinx: I've ran into that a lot by what I assume is from putting too much stuff in the container. I set the slots to 1,000 so that's probably not a good idea to make it that big either.

Hey everyone. I'm gonna post in the 'Bugs' section as well about this.

Anyway, has anyone had trouble when going back to a server with this mod changing to a different channel, accessing the inventory, Getting the message "Retrieving Remote Inventory" then getting kicked out of the server, and the server completely freezing? If so how do you fix this without loosing the stuff in the box?

Generally not a bad idea. Here some suggestions which could greatly improve usage:
1) Share by Name, meaning all storages having the same name shares.
2) Share across Maps (for Single Player) store the stored amounts in ini-file or somewhere and allow the same appear on another map if having the same name (from suggestion 1). Allow players to farm on the prefered map and use it everywhere.

is it possible to turn the pvp setting off where destroying one box drops the content if done so by something other than owner?
