Page Text: Using baskets
Baskets behave differently than chests and regular blocks.
Opening a basket from your inventory. While holding a basket in your main hand, use it (right click) without targeting a block. Looking up at the sky is a good way to make sure you’re not targeting a block.
Placing a basket. Baskets can only be placed on solid flat surfaces. Hold a basket in your main hand and right click while targeting a block. The basket will be placed. You can also place a basket from your off-hand, as long as you aren’t holding a placeable block in your main hand.
Picking up a basket. Use (right click) the basket with an empty hand while sneaking. The basket will drop into the world as an item.
Emptying a basket. Break the basket while sneaking. The basket will drop as an item, and its contents will spill out into the world. (This behavior didn’t work in v1.0.29 and earlier.)
Destroying a basket. Break the basket without sneaking. The basket will be destroyed, and its contents will spill out into the world.
BasketCase has both a config file and an in-game config menu accessible through the Mods menu. BasketCase is ridiculously configurable for such a small mod. Almost everything described above can be turned off or adjusted if desired. For example:
If you feel like gathering all the materials for a basket is too grindy, you can adjust the drop rate for the materials.
If you only want baskets for decoration, you can turn off their inventory capabilities.
If for some reason cordage or bark strips break your mod pack balance, they can be disabled.
You can disable certain sizes of baskets if you so desire.
Where can I download BasketCase?
Can I use BasketCase in my mod pack?
Yes. Please credit me.
Will you back port BasketCase?
No. I am not the slightest bit interested in back porting. Please don’t ask.
Will you make BasketCase compatible with some other mod?
Maybe. In general, I want BasketCase to be usable with other mods, but it depends on how difficult the compatibility will be and how much I feel like the other mod matches BasketCase thematically.
