A fast Minetest inventory with focus on a great number of items and big screens. The special feature of this inventory is the dynamic classification filters that allow fast searching and browsing trough available items and show relevant invormations only to the user.

The mod is organized in multiple pages, each page does have own focus and follow own vision.

Crafting page

Screenshot The vision is to not affect the gameplay trough crafting helpers. The dynamic search helper display currently relevant craft recipes only based on inventory content by default.

  • Contains the usual player-, and crafting inventory
  • Additional view of "craftable items" based on players inventory content
  • Dynamic grouping of craftable items for better overview
  • Lookup field to get all recipes with item in it - with filter for revealed items if the doc system is used
  • Search field - with filter for revealed items if the doc system is used
  • Compress - use the stack max size in inventory
  • Sweep - move content of crafting inventory back to the main inventory

Optional support for other mods

doc_items - if the doc system is found the crafting page shows only items craftable by known (revealed) items. A lookup button is available on already known items to jump to the documntation entry

Creative page

Screenshot The vision is to get items fast searchable and gettable

  • 3 dynamic filters + text search field for fast items search
  • Sort out "mass"-groups to a special "Shaped" group
  • just click to the item to get it in inventory
  • cleanup of inventory trough "Trash" field
  • clean whole inventory trough "Trash all" button
  • save and restore inventory content in 3x save slots

Player page

Screenshot The vision is to get all skins and player customizations visual exposed.

3d_armor / clothing

In creative mode all useable armor and clothing items available. The players inventory is not used in this mode. In survival only the armor and clothing from players inventory is shown.


tested only with my fork But it should be work with any fork that uses skins.skins[] and have *_preview.png files

Doc page

Screenshot The vision is to get all ingame documentation available in a fast way. So navigation from crafting page is possible directly to the doc_item entry The doc and doc_items mods required to get the page
