Better Chests adds enhanced chest features to the game.

Better Chests is safe to add/remove at any time. If Better Chests is removed from your game, and any chest has more than 36 items in it, you'll have to grab items from the top to get to the rest of them.

Works well with:
Better Crafting
Bigger Backpacks
Chests Anywhere
Custom Backpack Framework and More Backpack Upgrades

There are too many features and customization to list them all here, so it is highly recommended you search the Readme for full details on everything this mod can do!
