Nameable Chests Mod- floaty text above chests!



I'm not sure whether or not this has been done before, but hey. Here's a mod that allows you to put custom text above chests.

The Gui:
It's currently a WIP. Here's why:

At the top of the gui:
  • What the chest is currently displaying.
From Top-Left to Bottom-Left:
  • Reset the chest to show no text above it and clear any saved data.

  • Slot mode. The chest's text will be the name of the item in the first (top-left) slot. If nothing is there, it will set the text to "Empty Chest"

  • Free spaces. This displays the number of empty slots in the chest as the floaty text.
From Top-Right to Bottom-Right:
  • Color - this works a little complicated, but bear with me. It only works when you set custom text. To set the text color, first you must input custom text (see next bullet point), and then save it (see bullet point after that). when you click the color button, you must then save it for it to update.

  • Text - Click this to switch the custom text info box at the top of the gui to be one where you can input text. Make sure it's not too long! Also the chest's floaty text won't update until you have clicked save.

  • Save - Click this button to save all the custom text and color info. It will update the floaty text above the chest.
The Block:
The chest uses the default chest texture, so it's texture-pack friendly. However, unlike vanilla chests, you can put these chests wherever you want. This is because the max inventory size of one of these chests is the same as a small chest - you cant make large chests.

And The Recipe :

Todo:
Probably remove the need to save every time you change color. At the moment it's like that to reduce lag on servers.
There's a known issue where the floaty text won't update until you open the chest, if you start the world with chests existing. As far as I know, this is the same as all other mods which have custom rendering things to do with tile entities, so it could be a vanilla minecraft thing.

Copyright:
Do not distribute this mod without my permission. Assume that you do not have my permission until you have asked me and I have said yes. Do not put anything to do with this mod behind any monetizing links (for example, adf.ly). I'm doing this for free, there's no reason you should feel the need to make money from this. You do not need my permission to do a video of this. You are not allowed to be one of those websites that continually steals all the text, images (and then has the audacity to put your own watermark in my screenshots), then you do not have my permission to do anything. Go away.

A suggestion: ditch the crafting recipe and make it useable in SMP, this would help soooooo much on the survival/PVP servers that I go on

A little bit down the comments section, I say why I don't do it like that.

It is available in SMP already. As long as you have minecraft installed.

Can you make a mod like this for villagers? So names float above villagers? It would be great for adventure maps :D

as long as you put a link to the modpack here, make sure that my name is visible, and that a link to this thread is somewhere visible in the modpack.

This is completely one of the most useful mods out there for 1.4.2!
Minecraft has always needed this feature. And you sir have done it! Great mod.

Just curious if you know - will it work with chest mods such as Iron Chests or the Multi-page chests?

This is a separate chest block.

a good idea. but maybe just add this too the programing off normal chest (without craft recipe). it would e a very eful but not a 'cheating' mod if you did that. overall a grand idea though. +1 diamond.

If I did that, then vanilla chests would be incompatible with any mod that did anything with vanilla chests.

  • Teotoo

Because those chests would be incompatible with everything.
