Basic Information Edit
Wood Book Shelves are decorative storage blocks that can contain up to 3 stacks of items without displaying them.
How to obtain Edit
These storage containers cannot be found anywhere in the world nor harvested from creatures currently.
They can be crafted in your crafting menu (to be opened by typing the default key "Q"), but only after the according crafting recipe has been unlocked for free.
How to unlock the crafting recipe Edit
The crafting recipe for Wood Book Shelves can be unlocked by crafting or obtaining blocks of Wood Walls (which in return can be crafted from a starting recipe or can be found in Stone Treasure Chests).
How to craft Edit
You can craft one Wood Book Shelf with:
- 6 Wood Slabs made of most kind of Wood (except for Corrupted Wood) or Logs in a Processor. Simply click on the blue arrows next to the Wood icon in the crafting recipe to select a type of Wood or Log that you carry with you
- 1 Stone Rod made of Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
- 1x Melted Wax made of Beeswax in a Forge, or looted from Wood Treasure Chests or Stone Treasure Chests, or obtained from Keepas as a loot or Pet-harvest
How to use Edit
To use Wood Book Shelves, place them into the world and interact with them (right-click or default key "F").
A storage window with 3 slots will be displayed on the right side and you can then put all kinds of stuff into these slots from the window that will replace your inventory on the left side by dragging & dropping with your left mouse-button or by right-clicking them in your inventory/bag.
Wood Book Shelves can be fully rotated into all directions by pressing and holding "R" and moving the mouse while holding the left mouse button. Since update R52 on February 14th 2018 these storage containers can now be rotated even when filled.
The chosen rotation angle can then be "locked" too by simply typing "r", so that all items of the same stack will be placed facing the same direction.
You cannot pick up an Wood Book Shelf as long as items are still stored in it. When the shelf is empty, you won't need any Power Cells equipped to take it up though. 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.
You can simply sort whole stacks of materials, blocks, items or substances into storage containers like Wood Book Shelves 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 shelf 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.
You can use the same kind of procedures to move items/stacks from storage containers into empty slots of your quickbar and your inventory/bag.
You can name Wood Book Shelves individually (this label will be shown when you look at the shelf) by activating/opening the shelf and then clicking on the icon that looks like a square note with a pen in the top right corner.
You can type up to 30 characters into the text array and confirm this with "enter"/"return". This name/label will then be displayed instead of "Wood Book Shelf" when pointing your cursor at the shelf. Picking the (empty) Wood Book Shelf up will reset its name to the default again though.
You can also change the Permission settings for each Wood Book Shelf by clicking on the padlock icon shown in the top right corner after activating/opening the shelf. Here you can set individual authorizations to control who will be permitted access to this Wood Book Shelf (and its contents).
Available world permission-settings: "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 R40 all storage containers are set to "builders" by default when being placed. So only players with builder rights/permission rank either on your gameworld or on your claim (claim permission ranks override world permission ranks) can access your storage containers, but you can set them to "just me" if you want to. If set to "visitor", everyone can access these containers and can even take them away. Only on player claims a special permission rank "claim interacts only" will allow players with the same permission rank to access a container, but not to take it away.
By hovering your crosshair cursor over the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner, you can see a "Transfer History" listing the last 5 filling and 5 removal actions with the according player names and time of their access to the Wood Book Shelf.
Since update R52 on February 14th 2018 Wood Book Shelves are now fireproof.
