MondoChest Logo

Do you like having your materials all neatly organized into different chests, but hate the work required to organize them? Do you find yourself dumping everything into one chest, to deal with it later? MondoChest is for you.

How it Works

MondoChest lets you designate a master chest (by using a special sign) where you can dump your stuff. You then designate "slave" chests where your stuff will go to. They can be downstairs, upstairs, in another room, however you like (within a configurable radius.)

MondoChest will then see what's in each chest, and then decides where things get 'shelved' based on what's already in there. For example, one slave box has rails and powered rails in it, and another has wood planks and logs in it. If you dump wood into the master chest, it will be moved into the appropriate slave.

How to Use

Step 1

Designate a master chest by putting a "[MondoChest]" sign next to the chest.

Master Chest

now right-click the MondoChest sign, you should see a message like: MondoChest: Created bank with 0 chests.

Step 2

For any storage chests you have, create a sign with the first line containing "[MondoSlave]" next to the chest.

Note the sign must be a wall-mounted sign, signs standing on posts will not work.

Slave Chest

right-click the slave sign to add it to the MondoChest bank you created, and repeat for any number of slave chests.

You will see a message like: MondoChest: Added 2 slaves to bank

Step 3

Any time you have new items to sort, dump items into the master chest and then right-click the MondoChest sign. Items will be moved into a slave chest which already contains that item. Any items which don't have a known destination chest will stay in the source chest


To install, place MondoChest.jar in your plugins folder. A configuration file will be created with default configuration.

For detailed configuration docs, read Configuration

Tips and Tricks

  1. chests can be on any side of the sign, and one [MondoSlave] sign can handle multiple chests, allowing you to save on signs: Chest Positioning Example
  2. Don't like seeing the signs in your pretty chest room? dig a hole under the chest, and hide the [MondoSlave] sign down there. Sideways signs can also go behind chests in the wall.
  3. Multiple master chests can share the same slave chests. For example, you can have a MondoChest at the front gate and another at the rear gate of your castle, and everything gets shelved into the slaves in the castle vault downstairs. Do this by clicking one master, then run around right-clicking all the slaves to add them to the master. Repeat this for any other masters.

    Atm it seem to work fine on 1.9 as well, but spams console with this:

    CONSOLE: WARN]: Exception in thread "Craft Scheduler Thread - 2261"
    CONSOLE: WARN]: org.apache.commons.lang.UnhandledException: Plugin MondoChest v0.7.2-pre1 generated an exception while executing task 70
    CONSOLE: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.bukkit.Server.getOnlinePlayers()[Lorg/bukkit/entity/Player;

    Doesn't seem to do anything bad, but still wonder what it mean.

    Really wish this was updated as well.

    It's Open Source, however the link is not public.

    Anyone want to make a fork of it and post on SpigotMC.

    Please. This is without any competition, the greatest plugin for keeping your chests inventory in order ever! Please keep this going. The lack of posts and updates make me worry for its future. ;(

    Just give me a sign of life, please.

    After a server restart the slaves without signs are gone and have to be reassigned.

    is there possible to add a place in the config where I could add other containers to the list mondochest should use as chest? Would be great to use this with some of the mods (íronchests for example).

    @Islid: Go


    Though it's likely all chest permissions are going to be lost and you'll have to start over assigning chest permissions and owners (needing someone with the appropriate mondochest.admin permissions or op to do it)

    Are there any plans to provide UUID compatibility with this plugin? If not, I may have to abandon it with the new name changing ability being released soon (according to ) and I'd really hate to do that. :(
