I have a proposal for you. I have drawn my own unique sprites to some filters. I'll leave them here for you to see.
The rest, if you like these, I will finish painting later.

The recent update reduced the search bar functionality in my opinion. Typing in partial item names doesn't show the items anymore. You have to either type the entire thing or 90% of the name. For example "death" doesn't search death whistle anymore. I have to type at least "death w". Some searches are even worse than that.

@Blades the search functionality was not modified at all in v0.4.3.6
Do you happen to have Magic Storage - Extra enabled as well?

Having the ability to use a free trial end game stuff at the start of the game that can inflict dmg to any mob... Is this an intended mechanic? Because this seems broken. I'm using Magic Storage Extra instead of the original if that affected anything.

@Entropy.exe that must be a Magic Storage - Extra feature then, since Magic Storage doesn't have that

It's a shame that the original one has lesser station slots than the extra. Also I haven't seen that feature being added in Magic Storage Extra's patch notes.
@Entropy.exe I just double-checked and the original Magic Storage does not even check for right-clicks for the craft button, so it must be a Magic Storage - Extra feature.
Maybe the developers of Magic Storage - Extra forgot to include this in their mod's description?

@U M R you're using tiles from both Magic Storage and Magic Storage - Extra. Either use one of those mods only, or use the Which Mod is This From? mod to figure out which mod you used to place what tiles.

Gm, guys? Is there any wiki on this mode? Or such instructions, but with actually working pictures in it? Didn't understand a thing here.:sigh:

@pony 2 I haven't gotten around to making a wiki yet. The Storage Component requires Wood and Iron/Lead Bars.
After that, you can use the Guide or Recipe Browser to see what the Storage Component is used for.

I get a crash pretty regularly when using magic storage extra:

why I think it happens:
A combination out of:

- fast usage of magic storage. every crash happens after writing something quickly into the searchbar or scrolling fast

On page 74
Magic Storage Extra (which I will call MSE) is a fork (of another fork) of the original Magic Storage. MSE was made by someone else and includes extra features such as more filters, more crafting station slots, etc. The only reason Blushiemagic is credited is that they coded the original. MSE isn't compatible with the original MS or mods that have cross-mod content with the original such as Fargo's Soul Mod. I've also heard MSE is a little buggy, but I don't know if that is still true.
This means the makers of Magic Storage have no control of Magic Storage Extra as they don't make, edit, or update it. The 2 do the same thing for the most part and so will conflict with each other. You have to use one or the other, not both, otherwise you expect errors and crashes.

Magic Storage v0.4.3.5

Are you tired of having a mess of chests in your base? Never remember where you put your items, and have to run across your entire house to get from chest to chest? This mod will solve all of your problems!

This mod offers a solution to storage problems once and for all. It allows you to construct a central network to store all your items, that you can access from one single block. If desired, you can even set up multiple access points to use your storage from anywhere in the world. You can search your storage for items with a certain name, filter by item types, etc. The magic storage can even craft items for you!

The magic storage scales as you progress in your playthrough. It is accessible very early in the game, but with limited power. As you defeat bosses and earn more materials, you will be able to upgrade your storage to perform more functions and more easily expand the storage capacity.

The first thing you will want to do is craft several Storage Components:

(Requires
$
)
Note: Any wood can be used, and Lead may be used in place of Iron.

By itself, the Storage Component does nothing. However, it the base material for crafting all blocks in the mod. In addition, it can be used to connect different parts of your storage network (more on that later).

AWt4rpv.png
+ 3
$
+ 7
$
=

(Requires
$
)

As its name implies, the Storage Heart is the heart of your storage network. Every storage network must have one, and exactly one, in order to function. You can right-click the heart to access all items in its network.

Simply place one down to create a storage network.

Note: A Storage Heart cannot be physically connected to another Storage Heart or to a Remote Storage Access.

LM4nVnM.png


The first row of top-left buttons allow you to sort the items by default vanilla sorting, by ID, or in alphabetical order. The Deposit All button deposits all unfavorited items in your inventory and not in your hotbar into the storage. The top Search Bar allows you to search for items whose name contains whatever you type. The second row of top-left buttons allow you to filter items by category, while the bottom Search Bar allows you to search for items whose mod's name contains whatever you type.

To deposit an item, simply click any slot with the item in your mouse. To withdraw an item, click a slot containing the item while your mouse is not holding an item. It will attempt to withdraw up to a full stack. To withdraw one item, right-click the slot instead. You can also hold right-click to rapidly withdraw one item at a time.

You can also shift-click to deposit and withdraw items.

Note: Tungsten can be used in place of Silver.

You've probably noticed that by itself, you can't really do much with the Storage Heart. No items can be deposited into it. This is because you must connect one or more Storage Units to it in order for it to be able to store items.

The Storage Unit can store 40 items, just like a normal chest. This can be upgraded, however. When you deposit an item into a Storage Heart, it will search through all connected Storage Units to find space for it. Similarly, if you withdraw an item from a Storage Heart, it will search through all connected Storage Units to find it. This is where the Storage Heart becomes the central access for all your items; no longer do you have to search through rows of chests to find what you're looking for!

Once a Storage Unit contains items, the green indicator light on the bottom-right will turn yellow. When it becomes full, the light will turn red. You can also right-click a Storage Unit to get the exact number of item stacks it contains. When a Storage Unit contains items, it cannot be mined.

The Storage Heart will gradually attempt to draw items to the Storage Units closest to it. This way, you don't have to worry about having many Storage Units each with just a small amount of items, unable to be mined.

In order to upgrade a storage unit, you must craft an upgrade item, then right-click a previous-tier Storage Unit with the upgrade. You may also craft the Storage Unit and the upgrade together, if you wish.

I've mentioned connecting Storage Hearts to Storage Units, but haven't actually explained what that means. Two Storage Components are connected if they are touching each other, or if they are connected to components that are touching each other. This is a bit difficult to explain, so here are some examples with pictures.

Storage Units that contain items cannot be mined. However, this can be rather inconvenient when you don't exactly control when items are deposited to or withdrawn from a specific Storage Unit. The Storage Unit Wand solves this problem. Simply left-click a Storage Unit with the wand to deactivate it; this will turn the light in the top-right corner off. If you want to reactivate a Storage Unit, just click it with the wand again. You can also right-click a Storage Unit to see whether it is active or inactive.

A deactivated Storage Unit can still be withdrawn from, but cannot be deposited into. Additionally, the Storage Heart will attempt to move all items in the deactivated unit into other units as fast as possible, so that you can mine the deactivated unit.

One problem with using Storage Components to connect different parts of your network is that they take up a huge 2x2 space. In addition, they are pretty iron/lead-expensive to use. Storage Connectors solve this problem: they function similar to Storage Components, except they are 1x1 and cannot be stood on. They even visually connect together!

The Storage Heart lets you access all your items from one central location. But then the problem arises: you have to walk all the way to that location in order to get your items! #FirstWorldProblems

The Storage Access solves this problem. Simply connect a Storage Access to a Storage Heart, then when you right-click the Storage Access, it will open up the Storage Heart for you!

Now for some more serious problems. So far, you need to actually physically connect the Storage Heart to all Storage Units. This means your house will still be filled to the brim with blocks, and you can't access your storage from far away (unless you line the world with Storage Components). But never fear, Remote Storage Accesses are here!

First, you must place down a Remote Storage Access where you want to access your network from, or where you want to place your Storage Units. Next, you must craft a Locator:
10
$
+ 5
$
=
5JLkSdv.png
(Requires
$
/
$
)

Next, you must right-click a Storage Heart with the Locator. This will store the Storage Heart's location onto the Locator.

Once the Locator has a location stored, you must right-click the Remote Storage Access with the Locator. This will copy the location onto the Remote Storage Access, and consume the Locator.

A Remote Storage Access whose stored location points to a Storage Heart will become connected to the Storage Heart. This means right-clicking the Remote Storage Heart will open the GUI with all the items of the Storage Heart. Similarly, a Storage Access can be connected to the Remote Storage Access and function properly, and the Storage Heart will use all Storage Units that are connected to the Remote Storage Access.

To clear the location stored on a Remote Storage Access, you must mine then re-place it.

There is also a second type of Locator, the Locator Drive. Instead of being consumed upon use, the location stored on the Locator Disk will simply become cleared.

You can easily store and retrieve items to your heart's content, and even access your items from all over the world. But one thing is missing: how about crafting? You might have noticed that you cannot craft anything while viewing your storage. The Storage Crafting Interface fixes all those problems!

PhZidSY.png


To use a Storage Crafting Interface, first connect it to a Storage Heart. There are 10 slots available at the top for you to put crafting stations into. This will enable you to use any recipe that uses those crafting stations. Below those, you will see a list of all the recipes in the game. These recipes can be sorted, searched, and filtered by the items they create. If you click on a recipe, its info will appear on the right-hand side, including what ingredients you have in the storage already, and how many of the result you already have. You can click on an item in the storage to stop it from being used for the recipe (useful if the recipe can choose between multiple items or for keeping weapons with prefixes you want). Click the Craft button to craft the recipe; the ingredients will automatically be used and the result will automatically be deposited into storage. You can also hold the Craft button to keep on crafting.

To use a recipe that requires water, you can use either a sink or a water bucket for a crafting station. You can use a lava bucket for lava, and a honey bucket for honey. There is also a new item called a Snow Biome Emulator for recipes that require a snow biome.

Remote Storage Accesses are great if there is are static points in the world where you frequently access your items. However, they do not let you access your storage on the go, as you are exploring. Wouldn't it be great if you could just deposit everything into storage once your inventory fills, without even returning to base? Or withdraw some potions that you forgot to bring along?

The Portable Remote Storage Access will let you do exactly that! Just like with Locators and Locator Drives, you must first right-click a Storage Heart to save its location. Then, you can simply open up your storage by using this item with left-click, whenever and wherever you want!

Like with the Terra Storage Upgraded, the Radiant Jewel can be replaced by other items depending on what mods you have.

At this point, you're probably wondering: "Where on earth am I supposed to get all these diamonds?!" Worry not, this mod offers a solution to that! The first time you kill each boss, it will drop an item called a Shadow Diamond. You have the option to use these items instead of regular diamonds for any of this mod's recipes.

I've looked everywhere with no result. When searching for something in both crafting and in the heart, doesn't matter which, it won't let me enter bound keys.
Like my mount key is "T", so now I can't search for anything with the letter "T" in it because it'll activate my mount instead of entering the letter T in search.

Any work a rounds?
