The Grand Arctek Chest is a 1-block-sized storage chest that allows players to store items in after being placed. It has 40 slots (since R33 in August 2016), which makes it the "largest" chest on the inside, since 40 slots is the current maximum that any storage chest can provide.
This valued storage chest can very rarely be found in Diamond Treasure Chests (that randomly spawn on corrupted blocks in the dark - like in the Corruption layer deep underground) or Iron Treasure Chests (that randomly spawn on Lava layer blocks in darkness). This storage chest can also occasionally be obtained from Things either by killing them or harvesting from them when they are Pets.
Other than that you can craft Grand Arctek Chests yourself in your Crafting Menu (default key "q"), but only after the crafting-recipe has been unlocked by:
- crafting or obtaining an Arctek Chest (that provides 36 slots) and
- crafting or obtaining a Stone Chest
To craft 1 Grand Arctek Chest, you'll need:
- 2 Arcstones obtained from Keepas of any kind (either as loot or pet-harvest) or very rarely found in Wood Treasure Chests
- 4 Stone Slabs made from Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
- 1 Stone Rod made from Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
- 1 Glob of Goo made from Mold in a Processor or looted/harvested from many Creatures including Pigsies
To use this storage item, place it somewhere (it has the size of one block and doesn't need free space above them to be opened) and activate it with right-click or "f" (as the default key). Since R32 you won't need to equip any Power Cells any more to pick up Grand Arctek Chests that have been placed into the world.
This storage chest can be rotated in all directions by holding r (as the default key) and moving the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can then be "locked" too by simply typing "r", so that all Grand Arctek Chests as a stack in the same quickbar will be placed facing the same direction.
You can only rotate and take Grand Arctek Chests that are empty (with no items inside). Of course you won't be able to take such items on claims of other players (or in worlds) where your permission level is set low.
Grand Arctek Chests had less slots in earlier versions of Creativerse. If you had placed chests of any kind onto a Creativerse game-world before August 2016, you will have to empty them, pick them up (as said no Power Cell is required to pull any of them anymore) and then place the chests again to gain access to their now larger storage space than before and to their new functions.
You can simply sort whole stacks of materials, blocks, items or substances into storage chests from your inventory or quick-bar by right-clicking or dragging & dropping with your left mouse-button.
If you hold a stack of stuff with your mouse-button (left click), you can drag it over the chest and then right-click to drop only one piece of the stack (also repeatedly).
You can also hold left shift + left click, then drag to move half a stack, or hold left shift + right click to move five items, or hold left ctrl + right click to move one item.
You can use the same kind of procedures to take items / stacks from chests into empty slots of your quickbar and your inventory/bag.
You can name Grand Arctek Chests (these words will then be shown instead of "Grand Arctek Chest" when you look at them from outside) individually, by activating/opening the chest and then clicking on the icon that looks like a square note with a pen to the right of the word "Grand Arctek Chest". You can type up to 30 characters into this array.
You can also change a few settings for each chest by clicking on the padlock icon shown in the top right corner after activating/opening the chest. Here you can set individual authorizations to control who will be permitted access to this chest (and its contents).
Available world permission-settings: "just me", "world owner/admins", "world mods", "builders" or "everyone".
Since R40 all storage chests are set to "builders" by default when being placed. So only players with builder rights/permission rank either on your game-world or on your player claim (claim permission ranks override world permission ranks) can access your chests, but you can set them to "just me" if you want to. If set to "visitor", everyone can access these chests (but also take them with them).
On player claims the available settings are "just me", "claim admins", "claim interact only", "claim builders" and "everyone". Claim "interacts" can use the chests, take things from them and put things into them, but cannot pick up the chests themselves.
By clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner, you can see a "Transfer History" listing all filling and removal actions with the according player names and time of their access to the chest.
