Sneak Peek - Storage Bags

A more compact way to store common items like leather and feathers was requested by a couple of players in the early days of planning the DiggyVerse 2 update, so here it is... 

Storage Bags!

As you can see they are very cheap to craft, they are also infinitely reusable!

In total they can be used with 16 different items, 
some vanilla and some from the Diggys Stuff 2 Mod.

To fill a bag you just place it in the centre of the crafting grid and surround it with the item you want to fill it with. As you probably realised that means each bag holds 8 items, essentially allowing you to compact 8 stacks into one for long term storage or selling via Vending Blocks in higher quantities!

I do hope the bags stack, otherwise a leather block probably would have been better then a bag of leather. I could build with a leather block and conceivably stack leather blocks to 64.

Can bags of leather stack? Assuming, of course, that they all contain exactly the same thing?

Just curious..

Thanks again Digsy..

It would defeat the purpose of them if they didn't stack, as it says above each bag holds 8 items, so a stack of bags of leather (for example) is essentially 8 stacks compacted into one (so 512 leather in total).

We did weigh up the pros and cons of blocks versus items when I first added these to the test version last year, most of the items we wanted compact versions of just didn't make sense as blocks so we decided a multi-purpose bag was a better option.

Thanks for clearing that up boss.
