Condensed Blocks for Minecraft 1.7.2

Storage can quickly become a pertinent issue in Minecraft.  Sure, those eighteen stacks of 64 cobblestone could prove useful in your next building project, but having such a cluttered inventory makes it difficult to mine for more valuable items.  The Condensed Blocks mod by CNBKirk makes it easy to save space and keep all of your cobblestone at the same time!

With this mod, nine blocks can be placed on a crafting table to create one condensed block.  These blocks can then be condensed again using the same recipe, but with condensed blocks.  Some materials can be condensed up to four times, while others can be condensed up to eight times.




The following blocks can be condensed up to four times, leading to a total of 46,656 blocks in a single inventory slot:


  • Coal

  • Diamond

  • Emerald

  • Gold

  • Iron

  • Lapis

  • Redstone


The following blocks can be condensed eight times – more blocks than anyone could ever need (or realistically gather):


  • Cobblestone

  • Dirt

  • Sand

  • Gravel


Aside from providing more compact storage, each successively more compact tier makes the block stronger and more durable when placed in the world..  They will take longer to break, and will be more resistant to explosion.


More development for this mod will come in the near future, including condensing support for more blocks.  Even without additional updates, however, it stands as one of the most useful (if simple) mods I’ve come across in a long time!
