Here it is my first DataPack, hope you enjoy it,

It's just a simple "chest" or "barrel" transporter (Chest grabber, Chest transporter) made in Vanilla Minecraft.

The concept is simple, you just right click the chest or barrel and pack it wherever you want, then unpack it.

Now you can transport all your chests, barrels and items inside of them with this ease.

Yes, it's like a Shulkerbox, but it's an Item with durability for early game. So it's balanced in multiple ways. (And it is not comfortable to transport chests like that. Hehe...)

¿Why you should use this datapack?
Because it's balanced and funny, Minecraft always had inventory management issues and with this small piece I am providing a solution widely used in the Modding community but brought to a simpler world such as Vanilla Minecraft with commands.

¿Can I use with X?
Of course, it shouldn't have any problem with any other Datapack (AFAIK).

¿Can I Share it with my friends?
Of course you can, and you should, that's been made to make everyone happier in their worlds.

¿How can i craft it?
You can see my pictures and video showcasing it. ^^

¿Any questions? Just download and try it!

- Updated to Version 2.0 for 1.18!
- Fixed reinforced_box_packer loot table, now it works as intended.
- Performance optimizations:
  - Now, the display is scheduled every 2 ticks. (That means that's its executed half the times than previous implementation)
  - All display function is reworked, avoiding constantly killing and summoning the falling block if it's not needed.
  - Now, the effects are scheduled to every 18 ticks. (Executed almost like every second, instead of every tick)
  - The falling block is replaced with a pressure plate instead of a glass, just because minecraft bugs... (MC-114286). I thought that would be the less common block that looks ok for the need.
