The Advanced Furnace is the next logical upgrade from the basic furnace.
It is crafted by combing a basic furnace with two chests, a bucket to fetch lava and a piece of Redstone to put it all together. The result is much superior to the basic furnace, and not only adds many more slots to ease your smelting, it as well is capable of using any form of lava source for heating and won’t waste your fuel if you just happen to not have anything smeltable around. Put it close to lava (or a Lava Tank) or supply it with standard fuel. It also smelts slightly faster than the basic furnace.
The furnace should be compatible to all other mods that implement the Forge fluid system (like). In addition it can suck in nearby lava on its own. Just place it close to a lava source and it will be used as fuel. The block does a smart-search to find the nearest lava source block, so it can even drain those if only the flowing lava connects.

Sometimes you just run out of buckets, then you need the Lava Tank!
It is crafted by forming 4 ingots of iron into a tank, then add some glass panes as windows so you can see the current amount inside. You can insert up to 4 buckets of Lava, and if you carefully pick it up with a pick-axe you can even carry the lava around! If placed near an Advanced Furnace, the furnace will automatically drain lava as needed from the tank. While the tank is very resistant to explosions, you still should not place a full tank next to primed TNT.
The Lava Tank is as well compatible to all other mods that implement the Forge fluid system (like Buildcraft), so you can either supply it with buckets or with a pipe system of your choice.
There always comes this moment where the last slot in your inventory has been filled up, but there is still a diamond on the ground in front of you. While before you had to throw away other valuables, you can solve this dilemma with the pouch!
It is crafted out of leather with a string around it’s top so nothing gets lost. It won’t hold much, but sometimes that one slot makes such a difference.
The Small Pouch is limited to 4 items per stack so inventory is still limited, but you can get rid of all those one-slot items that most other mods force you to carry around by stuffing them in one or many pouches.
A chest just doesn’t look good when nailed to a wall, so the experts of craftsmanship have come up with a new idea called “Shelf”.
It is crafted out of wooden planks, three on top, three on bottom and 2 sticks in between.
The shelf will update its visual state based on how many items are inside.
Putting the items back and forth between a chest and a crafting table feels so tedious… But why not just nail two shelves on the crafting table’s sides?
It is crafted by putting two shelves at the sides of a crafting table.
A crafting box will not loose items placed on the crafting grid and can store about as much as a single chest.
