Enhanced Storage

In 1 collection by Neo
Storage, interface and farming improvements
10 items
Enhanced Storage is a quality of life mod which improves the whole storage system of Starbound.
On the one hand it adds a lot of new features to the usablity of containers, and on the other it adds many new content concerning storage and containers.

Container Improvements

Keep content
  • Stored items in a container will be kept inside after smashing.
  • Items from world generated containers can simply be picked up by smashing the container when the container was not opened before.
Increased capacity
  • The number of slots is increased and depends on the used area of each container to maintain the balance between small and large containers.
  • The basic formula is: Capacity = 20 + usedTiles * 3 (e.g. Tech Chest: 20 + 12 * 3 = 56)
Item sorting
  • Four choosable primary sorting orders (name, type, rarity, value).
  • After primary sorting it follows an automatic secondary sorting (rot time, count).
  • Two choosable sorting directions (ascending & descending).
  • Chosen sorting options will be saved for every single container until it gets smashed.
Item searching
  • Just type your keyword(s) in the textbox, mismatching items will be greyed out.
  • It is also possible to search by item category (grey text below item name) or colony tag.
    Use # at first to search for it. (e.g. #food, #block or #avian)
  • The keysword(s) must contain a minimum of 2 characters for a successful match.
Quick stack
  • By pressing the button in the bottom left corner all items from the inventory will be transferred into the container if the same items are in it.
  • Currently equipped items (armor and items in hands) and almost food (because different rot times) cannot be transferred.
Rename & coloring
  • Possibility to rename a container, even in colored font.
  • Possibility to change the interface color to 10 different colors with preview.
  • Possibility to toggle the 'keep items after smashing' functionality on or off.
Sell values
  • The price of a container includes the price of all items inside.
    This can be used for selling only one container with content instead of selling every single item.

New Content

Capacity Level Indicators
  • Shows the current used slots of a nearby container.
  • While placing an indicator you can see the range where it scans for nearby containers.
  • Works with all containers in the game, even with containers from mods!
  • Interacting with an indicator (default 'E') changes the style, there are 9 available styles.
  • All indicators can be purchased from 'Neo', the npc next to the stations from Enhanced Storage.
Liquid Tanks
  • Can be used for storing liquids and shows the fill level at the object itself.
  • All vanilla liquids represents their liquid color in the tank, some of them additionally have a light glow.
  • Only one liquid type can be stored in a single liquid tank, other items going back to the player if added.
  • All liquids, even from 'Frackin' Universe', 'ISE4-Reconstruction' and 'Elithian Races' are supported, unknown liquids from other mods using the liquid color from water.
  • The liquid tanks can be purchased from the new npc 'Neo' in the Outpost.
Capture Pod Cupboard
  • Can be used for storing Capture Pods and directly shows the preview image near the item slot.
  • The interface is optimized for Capture Pods and shows the images for all your captured creatures directly in the container.
  • It can be crafted in the Pet Station or can be purchased from the new npc 'Neo' in the Outpost.

  • This new crafting material is used for all stations from Enhanced Storage.
  • It can be acquired as loot from slain monsters or from the Storage Matter Extractor.
Storage Matrix

  • A new tutorial quest, various S.A.I.L. messages and the main story introduce the player to the crafting station.
  • Can be found in the Outpost or can be purchased from the new npc 'Neo' in the Outpost.
Storage Matter Extractor
  • Can be used to "recycle" all kinds of containers to get back some Storage Matter.
  • The extracting process takes 2 seconds per container but the interface can be closed while processing.
  • The amount of acquired Storage Matter from recycling is random but the minimum amount is 1. The chance for getting a second Storage Matter is 50% and 10% for a third.
  • It can be purchased from 'Neo' in the Outpost.
Storage Manipulator
  • Can be used for modifying the slot count of containers.

A quick question / request
Would it be possible to add support to the kitsune race mod?

Multiplayer Issue: Duping. Playing on the Frackin Universe official server. I tried to extract some pet houses because they were easy to buy. instead it gave the pet houses back 2x and sometimes 3x as much. pet houses sell at a maxed out terminal for 2 million so this is an issue. Even more of an issue is that if you try to extract a wall storage with items already in it, it dupes the storage and the items inside. Note this did not occur on singleplayer, only multiplayer and possibly only the FU server.

I got another question that maybe you know, is killing monsters with a hunting weapon hindering on the storage matter drop, or even any drop? I would imagine so because they always drop meat or something else, no?

My goal was to give the player some extra Storage Matter as reward for hunting monsters. It was never intended to push the player into monster farming. It is more a bonus. ;)

@Neo So it's not really worth it to hunt monsters when you can just extract matter from containers? I actually asked this question because i wasn't getting matter from monsters and didn't know about extracting matter
Neo  [author] May 15 @ 10:55am 
@___Scorpio: The drop chance is about 3%.
___Scorpio May 15 @ 8:01am 
What's the drop chance on storage matter?

NEVERMIND It works for me, It's just the ship locker that it doesn't like for some reason. Probbaly because I'm using the Gnollbound mod.
