The Chest Dimension
0.0.2 has been released!
Added update keys
Added the ability to set a custom spawn position with a key (configurable, default:J)
Added a second file with 8 background variations (bathhouse floor, beach, red room, and 5 types of void)
This mod adds a completely empty map, intended for storing lots of chests and machines. This means you can move all the boring stuff into here, and focus on making your farm (or your shed interiors) look nice and cozy, instead of just filling them with chests, crystalariums, or kegs.
You could turn your Chest Dimension into:
A gigantic ancient fruit wine farm (of course)
A processing facility for ores, quartz, animal products, trash, etc.
A storage room where every item gets its own chest
A remote storage network (when combined with the Chests Anywhere mod)
A large area to dump your decorative items or rarecrows
You can go to (and get out of) the Chest Dimension with a single key (default: H). You can change the key in the config file.
If this feels too cheaty (for example, it could be used to quickly escape from monsters), you can edit the config file to not allow access from the mines, or to only allow access from specific locations (e.g. from your farmhouse).
Requirements: PyTK and TMXLoader.
Download from the Files tab.
Open the zip, and extract both folders into your Mods folder.
Launch through SMAPI.
If you’re installing the version with background variations:
Open the zip
Extract the folder named ‘The Chest Dimension’ into your Mods folder
Open the Variations folder
Pick a variation, and extract it into your Mods folder.
(All background variations are interchangeable and switching between them won’t do anything to your TCD, other than changing the background.)
You can change the mod’s settings by editing Mods\The Chest Dimension\config.json.
