The Medieval Chest is a reddish brown 1-block-sized storage unit with metal reinforcements at all corners and over the lock that can contain 32 stacks of items. This is 4 slots less than the free Arctek Chest has, and 8 slots less than the free Grand Arctek Chest.
How to obtainEdit
This storage chest is part of the Medieval Super Bundle (formerly called "Colossal Castle Bundle") that was introduced with update R41 on May 1st 2017.
Medieval Chests as crafted objects are also included in the Medieval Pack and in building kits that you can buy for any Blueprint that includes Medieval Chests, but none of these item/block packs include the according crafting recipe for this object.
How to unlock the crafting recipeEdit
Buying the Medieval Super Bundle in the Store for Coins is the only way to permanently add the crafting recipe for this object to the crafting menu (to be opened by default key "q"), where it will be already unlocked and will always be available even on game worlds where the world option "world bound recipes" is enabled.
How to craftEdit
After buying the Medieval Super Bundle in the Store, to craft one Medieval Chest, you'll need:
- 1 Wood Slab made from most types of of Wood or Logs in a Processor
- 1x Melted Wax made from Beeswax in a Forge or found in randomly spawning Wood Treasure Chests or Stone Treasure Chests, or obtainable from Keepas as a loot or pet-harvest
- 4 Stone Rods made from Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
- 2 blocks of most kinds of Wood (except for Corrupted Wood) or Logs. Just click on the blue arrows of the icon in the crafting recipe window to choose any type of Log or Wood that you carry with you. Wood can be taken from the trunks and branches of all trees or can be found in Wood Treasure Chests that spawn on the surface during the night The variant of Wood you choose will not influence the final look of the item.
How to useEdit
Medieval Chests can be placed into the game world to be used as storage containers. They require free space the size of only one block (no additional free space above). When activated/opened, they will offer 36 slots of storage space.
You can fully rotate Medieval Chests (no matter if they are full or empty) into all directions by pointing your cursor at them, then pressing and holding R (as the default key) and then moving the mouse while holding down the left mouse button.
The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at a rotated item, so that all items of the same stack in the chosen quickslot will then face the same direction when being placed.
Medieval Chests can be opened by activating them, either by clicking the right mouse button or pressing "f" as the default key while pointing the cursor at them, after the chests have been placed into the game world.
You can sort whole stacks of materials, blocks, items or substances into storage chests from your inventory or your quick-bar by right-clicking on one stack after another or by dragging & dropping item stacks with your left mouse-button.
If you hold a stack of items with your mouse-button (left click), you can drag it over the chest and then right-click to drop only one piece/item of the stack. You can also repeat this. To move half a stack, you can hold down the left shift key then drag the halved stack with the left mouse button. And you can hold the left shift key and click the right mouse button to just move five items to the chest automatically.
You can use the same kind of procedures to move items/stacks from storage containers into any empty slots of your quickbar at first and then into your inventory/bag.
You can put Medieval Chests on display on Wall Shelves, Placemats, Hidden Temple Altars, Snow Buried Containers, Frozen Containers and Galactic Grav-Chambers where they will be displayed in a smaller size for decoration, but cannot be used as a storage container while on display.
Like all storage containers, Medieval Chests can be picked up without the need to equip any Power Cells, but only after they have been completely emptied. Of course you won't be able to pick up such objects on game worlds, on player claims or in Adventures where your Permission rank is not sufficient (mainly when you are merely a visitor), which can only be changed by the owner of the game world, claim owner or Adventure creator.
How to change the permission settings of Medieval ChestsEdit
You can change the Permission settings for each of your chests by activating them (right-click or "f" as the default key) and then clicking on the padlock icon in the top right corner next to the name of the chest. Here you can define individual authorizations to control who will be permitted access to this chest (and its contents).
Available world permission-settings are: "just me", "world owner/admins", "world mods", "builders" or "everyone". On player claims, the available settings are: "just me", "claim admins", "claim interact only", "claim builders" and "everyone".
Since update R40 the permission level of all storage containers including Medieval Chests will be set to "world builders" by default as soon as the Medieval Chests are being placed, while on player claims the permission will automatically be set to "claim builders" when the Medieval Chests are being placed there (claim settings always override world settings).
Players with "visitor" permission rank on the according claim or "visitors" on the game world (if the Medieval Chests have not been placed on any claim) cannot take anything from the Medieval Chests. Players with "claim interact" permission rank (only available on player claims, not for a whole game world) can remove items from the Medieval Chests and can put items into them, but cannot change their settings nor take the Medieval Chests themselves.
Players with builder rights or an even higher permission rank either on the player claim where the Medieval Chests have been placed or on the game world (again, claim settings override world settings) can change the settings of the Medieval Chests, can take their content and can even pick up the Medieval Chests themselves.
After raising the permission level of Medieval Chests, only their owner as well as players with a matching permission rank or an even higher rank as the new permission level of the Medieval Chests will still have access to them and will also be able to pick them up.
You can see and change permission settings when activating/opening Medieval Chests, either by clicking the right mouse button or pressing "f" as the default key while pointing the cursor at them after the chests have been placed into the game world. Then look for the padlock symbol in the top right corner of the settings window. Click on this padlock icon to check the permission setting that is currently selected and/or to change it then.
How to rename Medieval ChestsEdit
You can rename Medieval Chests like all other storage containers by activating them in the game world (right-click or "f" as the default key) and then clicking on the icon that looks like a square note with a "pen" on it in the top right corner.
You can then type up to 30 characters into the labelling array of the Medieval Chest and confirm this with "enter"/"return". This name/label will then be displayed instead of "Medieval Chest" when pointing your cursor at the chest. Picking the (empty) chest up will reset its name to the default one again though.
After activating a Medieval Chest with right-click or by pressing "f" (as the default key) you can hover your mouse cursor over the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner. You will then see a "Transfer History" listing (up to) the last 5 filling and 5 removal actions with the according player names and time stamps of each access to this specific Medieval Chest.
