Decorating your home, but sick of the ugly mismatched chests littering the place? Then give them a splash of customization with Chests Plus! This mod is incredibly simple, but allows you to dye chests using any of the dye colors Minecraft offers.
Dying a chest is simple, and can be done at any stage. Crafting a chest and want it to be red? Create a chest like normal but toss a piece of red dye in the middle. Already have a chest and want to make it green? Just toss it anywhere in the crafting grid along with that beautiful green dye. Have a brown chest but want it to be blue? Just toss it in a crafting grid with a piece of blue dye. Already have a chest placed and full of items, simply sneak and right-click with any dye to change its color. Finally, want to get a normal vanilla chest back? Simply put any colored chest in the crafting grid and receive a vanilla one in return!
Dynamic Chests! Crafted like a normal chest, but with smooth-stone in the middle. Place one in the world and shift-right-click with a block to change the chest’s texture.
Lockable chests! Crafting a key (recipe below) and right-clicking on the chest latch will lock it to you and you alone. Unlocking it with that same key will allow anyone to access it.
These chests act just like a single vanilla chest, but they won’t connect to adjacent chests, allowing for more compact placement.
