The Reinforced Chest is a new variant of normal chests added by the Better Storage mod that comes in different types of metal reinforcement. They differ from Vanilla Chests in a few ways. They have 12 extra slots for storage and are resistant to Creeper explosions. There are 8 variants of reinforced chests: Iron, Gold, Diamond, Emerald, Copper, Tin, Zinc and Silver. All of them, except for Zinc and Silver as their metals do not exist in Hexxit, are craftable. The materials only affect the look, not the quantity that they can hold. You can also lock your reinforced chests by right-clicking the chest with a Lock. They are classified as wooden blocks and as such can be destroyed most efficiently by using Axes.
Just like their normal Minecraft counterparts, they will form a double chest if two Reinforced Chests of the same mineral are placed next to each other.
There are a total of eight reinforced chest variants. They are all crafted similarly. You will need:
- 4 materials (this can either be Iron , Gold , Diamonds , Emeralds , Copper, Tin , Silver or Zinc)
- 1 material block (same type as the material)
- 3 Logs (any type)
- 1 Chest
There are several types of Reinforced Chests:
- Reinforced Iron Chest
- Reinforced Gold Chest
- Reinforced Diamond Chest
- Reinforced Emerald Chest
- Reinforced Copper Chest
- Reinforced Tin Chest
- Reinforced Silver Chest
- Reinforced Zinc Chest
- Reinforced chests are not compatible with Inventory Tweaks, so there is no way to automatically sort them or to use other Inventory Tweaks functions.
- In version 1.55 of Inventory Tweaks, the inability to sort has been fixed, but is not for version 1.5.2 which is what Hexxit uses.
- Some of the types of reinforced chests (i.e. Siver and Zinc) are not craftable as the mods containing the metals they require are not found in the Hexxit modpack.
- Using a Storage Capsule Station to contain Reinforced Chest will cause the chest to become bugged, and will crash the game.
- Chest Transporters will not transport Reinforced Chest.
