Another Bug/Suggestion-spectrum complaint - categorize as you see fit, Steve!
Summary: A gold chest is spawned for each merchant purchase. They do not stack or merge.
Steps to reproduce:
- Create nine wooden shields
- Sell to merchant, one shield at a time.
(If only making big bucks were this easy!!)
Gold will add to one chest until it is full. Alternately, villagers will pick up a chest and drop it onto another one (ideally the ‘fullest’) to fill it to its max capacity - the remaining gold is distributed to other chests in a similar manner.
A separate chest is created for each sale. Selling nine shields will create 9 x 70g chests.
Notes: AFAIK, selling 10 shields at once with the ‘Sell 10’ button should create a single 700g chest - I’m assuming that chests hold 999g or 1000g.
The chests quickly become a nuisance in terms of stockpile real-estate:
