Metal Barrels Mod

Metal Barrels Mod adds additional barrels to the game that can store more items. They function like their vanilla counterparts in that they can be opened with a solid block on top and don’t cause any fps issues in large numbers unlike chests.

  • Copper stores 45 stacks
  •  Iron stores 54 stacks
  • Silver stores 72 stacks
  • Gold stores 81 stacks
  • Diamond stores 108 stacks
  • Obsidian stores 108 stacks but has a blast resistance of 30 thousand making it resistant to most explosions
  • Crystal stores 108 stacks but the top 8 items can be seen inside (Note: unlike the other barrels, having a large number of these with items inside will impact fps negatively, I do not recommend using them for large scale projects)
  • As of 1.1+. there are now upgrade items that can be used to upgrade already placed barrels without breaking them, the contents will not be destroyed or dropped if used.
  • As of 1.4+, the upgrades will now work on iron chests as well and they upgrade into their respective items.
