Stationary Containers

Stationary containers can be transported when empty. They must be placed before items can be added and cannot be transported with items inside. Stationary containers including baskets, chests, tool racks and shelves are crafted using the grid crafting mechanic. Pottery containers are crafted using the clay forming mechanic.

Grid Basket.pngBasket - A basket is made from 24 cattails and has 8 slots.
Grid Chest.pngChest - A chest is made from 8 planks and has 16 slots.
Grid Tool rack.pngTool rack - A tool rack is made from 6 sticks and has spaces for 4 tools.
Grid shelf.pngShelf - A shelf is made from planks and sticks and holds 8 fired clay items including crucibles, food crocks, and bowls.

Some items such as metal ingots, planks, peat bricks, & firewood do not need to be stored in containers because they can be "stacked" on solid blocks. Fired Clay items (molds, bowls, pots) may be placed (Sneak + RMB) to place on solid blocks.

Food Storage Containers

Most food storage containers fall into the class of stationary containers and can only be transported when empty. They must be placed to be filled. Most food storage containers cannot be transported with items inside, with the exception of the Crock. Barrels are crafted using boards in the crafting grid. Pottery containers are crafted using the clay forming mechanic.

Crock.pngCrock (transportable) - Pottery vessel that holds 4 meal portions, but may also be used to store cooked foods. The crock may be used to transport food items in a player's inventory, stored in stationary containers, placed on sold blocks and shelves.
Storagevessel-brown-burned.pngStorage Vessel (Stationary) - Pottery vessel with 12 slots for items. Decorated storage vessels may be purchased from traders or looted from ruins.
Grid Barrel.pngBarrel (Stationary) - Crafted using planks and sticks. A barrel holds a full stack of ONE type of item, and is used in processing as well as storage. Barrels are a special case container, because once filled and sealed, they cannot be moved until the process taking place inside the container is complete.


Bags add additional player inventory slots. To expand player inventory, place containers in the four container slots located on the right side of the hotbar slots, and include basket shadows. The additional inventory slots provided by each container will appear to the left of the crafting grid in the order in which the containers are placed in the container slots. Different types of portable containers can be placed in different container slots.

When a container is removed from the container slots on the hotbar, the contents will be lost. Be sure to remove the contents from the container before removing the container. Portable containers are crated using the grid crafting mechanic.
