Better Storage 2 Add-on

Better Storage 2 is a storage based tech mod featuring new and creative storage solutions. Items, blocks, liquids, mobs and animals, whatever it is Better Storage 2 will provide you something to store them easily. A must have for any tech modpack.

Better Storage 2 currently features:

  • Steel
  • Storage Crates
  • Crate Loader
  • Powder Bags
  • Compressed Blocks
  • Rotten Flesh Block
  • Infinicake

But that's not the end of it! Feel free to suggest what to add in the next update!


Steel is the main resource for Better Storage 2, it is used for almost every crafting recipe. You can obtain Steel Ingots by smelting Iron Ingots in a Blast Furnace. Steel Ingots can be used to craft:

  • Steel Gears (required to craft machines such as the Crate loader)
  • Steel Hammer (important tool, needed to remove machines)
  • Storage Crates

Storage Crates

Crates are the main feature of BT2. Crates can hold up 1 stack items. Here's the list of compatible items:

  • Apple
  • Bamboo
  • Sugar Cane
  • Blaze Rod
  • Ender Pearl
  • Egg
  • Magma Cream
  • Flint
  • Leather
  • Potato
  • Carrot
  • Spider Eye
  • Feather
  • Gunpowder
  • Bone
  • Beetroot
  • Sweet Berries

You will need a Crate Loader to load/unload empty Crates. Filled Crates will be used up if unloaded

Crate Loader

The Crate Loader is the first machine added by BT2. After placing it down, you can access it's internal GUI (similar to a trading GUI). In it you will find all the recipes to load/unload empty Crates.

To remove a Crate Loader you will have to use a Steel Hammer on it. The machine will break into it's item form.

Powder Bags

Another storage solution added by BT2 is the Powder Bag. It can be filled in a crafting table with these items:

  • Glowstone Dust
  • Redstone
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Gunpowder
  • Sugar
  • Blaze Powder
  • Cocoa Beans
  • Bone Meal
  • Clay Ball

You may gain back you items by putting a filled Powder Bag in a crafting grid. The bag will be used.

Compressed Blocks

Compressed Blocks are a neat addition to the game, while working as storage blocks they can still be used as decoration and for building. Put together 9 of the following blocks to get it's compressed form:

  • Cobblestone
  • Sand
  • Netherrack
  • Dirt

You can uncraft Compressed Blocks by putting them in a crafting grid.

Rotten Flesh Block

Rotten Flesh Blocks are a nice solution to storing and using that annoying Rotten Flesh. You can craft one for 9 Rotten Flesh. You will not be able to uncraft them. Rotten Flesh Blocks can be smelted down to Cooked Beef.


The Infinicake is the ultimate solution to hunger. If eaten it will restore 2 hunger points but won't be consumed. Be careful tough! This special cake is known to teleport away from your hand!

So far so... decent? The recipes I'm getting in game are not the ones shown here. Secondly, I can craft a crate loader but it does not function. So far everything else in the mod is working

the game crashes when I load the mod on the beta in experimental mode. Don't know how to be helpful here.

Good mod but can you make it to were the hammer does damage? I'd say 7 damage. Also can you also make more special tools for steel?
