What’s better than the chest in Minecraft? How about massive chests the size of houses that can carry an insane amount of items? The Colossal Chests mod allows you to make humongous chests from multiple blocks, so long as whatever size you end up working with manages to still include a colossal chest core block. These don’t actually need to be at the core of the giant chest either – those should be hollow and empty of any blocks or items, so the name can be a little confusing for first-time users of this mod. However, these colossal chests work just like smaller, standard chests.
This means they can store goods – with an amount of space equal to however many chests went into the construction of the colossal chest. The Colossal Chests mod allows for chests featuring multiple windows worth of storage space, and one humongous chest could be enough to hold onto everything you own or ever will own in a Survival or Hardcore world. You can even attach hoppers and pipes to the chest to feed in and spit out items according to the way you tell the chest to behave. In form, style and even function, the colossal chests are just like the smaller ones, only bigger.
This can be both a good and bad thing. It’s good because you can store everything you own in one central location – a location which will also be easy to see from a distance thanks to the humongous treasure chest marking it. On the other hand, if one section of your colossal chest explodes, the entire thing is going to get wrecked and items will be dumped everywhere. You could lose literally everything you’ve saved if a TNT block or unfortunate creeper spawn manage to get the jump on you. So, the Colossal Chests mod is pretty good, but not at all perfect.
