Automatic item sorting is a system that organizes items in your chests and inventory. It also allows you to quickly deposit items from your inventory into chests as sorted stacks, automatically!
How can I use this? To use all the features you need to be a Captain Donator Rank. Commander Donator Ranks get access to automatic inventory sorting only.
Auto-Sort Depositing items into chests
Shift+left-click a chest to quickly deposit inventory items into a chest.
This will instantly add all items from your inventory into the chest, matching only items already in the target chest. As an example; a chest with only cobble in it will only remove cobble from your inventory when you shift+left click the chest, it will be stacked and sorted! This allows for chests to be setup once for storage, never worrying that your items will become disorganized.
Handy for dumping groups of tools or common building blocks from your hotbar into themed chests like “farming”, “adventuring”, “mining”, and “building”.
When you open a chest or chest minecart, the contents will be automatically re-stacked and sorted, grouping similar items together. The first time this happens, you will get a brief explanation in chat. This can be disabled with the command /autosort chests.
Chests with an asterisk (*) in their name are ignored when auto-sorting to give pirates an easy way to disable sorting for specific chests (or even all your chests, if you’re concerned about other players sorting them on open). Pirates can rename chests with an anvil.
Auto-sorts player inventory.
When you open your inventory, it’s sorted in the same manor as explained above for chests. your hot-bar is untouched. Like the chest sort, this can be disabled by using /autosort inventory
Deposit Backpack into chests
/DepositAll Finds all chests (within one chunk of your location) that you have permission to open and automatically deposits any items from your back pack (not your hotbar) which match items in those chests. Just set up your chests with sample items, and let /DepositAll take care of the rest! This is superb for well organized vaults.
Automatic Item sorting is only available to Donator Ranks
