About this mod

Shows container contents and capacity in the hover text.

Permissions and credits
This is a simple quality of life mod that lets you see the contents of a container, as well as its remaining capacity in the interact hover text.

You can configure the following:

  • Maximum entries to show - default -1, meaning unlimited
  • Sort type - Name, Value, or Weight - default Value
  • Sort ascending - default false
  • Entry text - default <color=#AAAAAAFF>{0} {1}</color> ({0} is replaced by the amount and {1} is replaced by the item name)
  • Overflow text - if more items than max entries - default <color=#AAAAAAFF>...</color>
  • Capacity text - default <color=#FFFFAAFF> {0}/{1}</color> ({0} is replaced by the slots used and {1} is replaced by total slots)

Colors are RRGGBBAA hexadecimal (Alpha doesn't seem to do anything). For example, to get the colors in the first screenshot:

EntryText = <color=#FFFFAAFF>{0}</color> <color=#AAFFAAFF>{1}</color>

Apparently if you use BetterUI, you need to set the following in the BetterUI config file:

chestHasRoomStyle = 0


A config file BepInEx/config/aedenthorn.ShowContainerContents.cfg is created after running the game once with this mod).

You can adjust the config values by editing this file using a text editor or in-game using the Config Manager.

To reload the config from the config file, type showcontainercontents reset into the game's console (F5).


To install this mod, the easiest way is to just use Vortex, the Nexus Mods mod manager. It should take care of all dependencies.

To install manually, place the dll file in the BepInEx/plugins folder. You will need BepInEx.
