Storage values

Trivia

  • Chest Upgrades are slightly more expensive than crafting the next tier of chest, so the only reason you would want to use them is if you have already filled up your chest and you don't want to have to unload the items from the chest and reload them again.
  • The Alchemical chest from Equivalent Exchange has 104 spaces and has an EMC value of 8987 compared to the Diamond chest which has 108 spaces and an EMC value of 34886. Therefore, it is considerably more EMC-efficient to craft an Alchemical chest, with only the loss of 4 storage spaces.

Bugs

  • On multiplayer, if another player upgrades a chest while you are near it, your client whitescreens, then crashes (as of 3.1.2)

    • I am using Chrome 24.0.1312.57 and the recipes on the metal chest upgrades show up fine, confirmed right before I submitted this post
    • I fixed an issue with the grid template that was causing oddly formatted text for viewers with smaller screens -- which may show up as "...
  • The Whitscreen

    • It also seems to do it to me on multtiplayer when i upgrade but only when im at bottom or top of row of chests
