[Mod] Better Storage v1.5


The storage system in StoneHearth is easy to use, but maybe you need more filtering capabilities? Want to separate flowers from fibers? Wheat grains from food? Meat from animal feed?

Better Storage is here for you! Adding more filters to stockpiles, crates and chests for better resource management.

Feedback, suggestions and bug reports are welcome!

Poll (Closed)

In BS 1.0, I removed Ore and Metal Bars categories to ensure better compatibility with mods and simplify things. What do you think about that change?

  • Ore and Metal Bars should be detailed categories again, it was very useful (old version)
  • Ore and Metal Bars don’t need to be detailed, simple filters are enough (current version)

So I just wanted to tell the Alpha 15 Users that a few things sadly don’t work . The resources-tab doesn’t work (wood,stone,clay and ore) also a few other items are not registered (like animalparts) So I would say it is not compatible with Alpha 15. As Shinsaka mentioned this is for Alpha 16 R2924 and was not tested (or meant to work) for other Versions so this isn’t a complaint :slight_smile: Just an Info for those like me who don’t play the unstable Steamversion. ( I play on the Standalone-Client so no unstable Version for me ^^)
More anticipation for me when I finally play Alpha 16 with better Stockpiles :grin:


Thanks for confirming that. Better Stockpiles don’t work with A15 cause Radiant modified some item tags and filters, and I use them. I have the Steam Unstable version and so I can’t convert my mod. I’m sorry, A15 users :cry:


You can opt-out of beta and the stable A15 will download automatically (if you’re unsure if it’ll break something, do a backup somewhere else first). And after you grab A15, you can opt-in again in the unstable branch and redownload A16.

Just toggle the option in the dropdown. It is explained here at the bottom (how to switch between branches) : Development – Stonehearth


Added a compatible version for Alpha 15!!

I changed the versioning, there’s now version 0.15.1 for A15 R549 and version 0.16.1 for A16 R2924.
Version 0.16.1 is the same as the previous 1.1, if you already have it you don’t need to redownload it.

Enjoy :slight_smile:


Nice work Shinsaka!, just to let you know I made a little adjustment to praise so that if you comment on your own mod it won’t show as a notification anymore, silly I didn’t fix it sooner but there we go :slight_smile:

Better Stockiples 0.16.3 now available on PraiseDB and StoneHearth Mods !


Thank you so much for the update, really enjoy this mod. I hope as the developers move forward they incorporate the additional filters as it make it so much easier to manage a larger (or more spread out ) town.

The source and changelog for Better Stockpiles are now on Github !

Github replaces Dropbox as the main release deposit. Much better.

Are cloth and thread on different categories now?

@Apani: No, they are together in the “thread & cloth” category.
