Features[edit | edit source]
General[edit | edit source]
The Block Compressor is an upgrade to a Custom Crafter that transforms it into a machine that compresses and decompresses items on top of it. This module requires the Custom Crafters module to be installed to work correctly.
Items can be compressed by a factor of 64 or 16, meaning that a single "64 compressed stick" is made from 64 regular sticks. Compressed items enable containers like chests and shulker boxes to hold vastly greater quantities of items.
Compressed items can easily be decompressed back into their original state to be used in crafting and building. Be careful though, if a compressed item is placed as a block it will lose its compressed state. For example, if a *64 compressed diamond block is placed on the ground, 63 diamond blocks will have just been lost.
Creation[edit | edit source]
Insert the recipe below into a Custom Crafter to upgrade it into a Block Compressor. When broken, the Block Compressor will drop both the items used to create a Custom Crafter and the items used to upgrade it into a Block Compressor.
Compressing and Decompressing[edit | edit source]
The GUI of a Block Compressor is used as a settings interface for the type of compression it will do. A Block Compressor has 3 modes. It can compress *16, compress *64, or decompress.
|Compressor Mode||Items inside Compressor|
|Compress *64||64 of any item into any slot|
|Compress *16||16 of any item into any slot|
|Decompress||1 of any item into any slot|
Once compression mode is set, throw items on-top of the Compressor to compress/decompress them.
Technical Details[edit | edit source]
A chest full of *64 compressed items can hold a total of 110,592 items, 6400% more than a chest of uncompressed items (1728 items).
A chest full of shulker boxes, each full of *64 compressed items, can hold 2,985,984 items.
A block compressor will do 1 compression per 16 game ticks, 8 redstone ticks, or 0.8 seconds.
