Please see minecraft forum
Here’s some info on BetterStorage’s config settings, for people who’re interested in adjusting or tinkering with the mod a bit.
First of all, know that pretty much every item, block or enchantment in BetterStorage can be disabled by setting the ID in the config to 0. Don’t like the cardboard stuff? Do this and it’s like it never existed! Note that this actually stops the thing from being created / registered at all, it doesn’t just disable the recipe. If a server has it, the client will need it too. If you just want to disable the recipe there’s mods which can do that.
Now to the more useful settings …
Storage Crate options
enableCrateInventoryInterface (Default: true)
Setting this to false will disable the storage crate’s inventory interface, which is what makes other blocks (hoppers, pipes, etc.) and in some cases entities (like Thaumcraft golems) able to interact with them.
enableCrateStorageInterface (Default: true)
This may be used to disable the ability for mods that support BetterStorage’s crate API to interact with crates.
backpackRows (Default: 4)
Controls the size of backpacks. You can change it to have from 1 row up to a double chest worth (6 rows) of items in it.
enableBackpackOpen (Default: false)
If you don’t like that you have to place down a backpack to get access to the items inside, enable this setting and you will be able to open it while equipped by simply pressing a key. Note that this is controlled by the server if you’re playing multiplayer.
backpackChestplate (Default: true)
As long as this is enabled, backpacks will take up the chestplate armor slot when equipped. They’ll work as described above: Protect from damage, take damage, and eventually even break.
When disabled, backpacks will not be equipped to the armor slot (and instead are transported to the mystical land of baloonicorns). It can be used and interacted with like normal and will still render on the player, but stop protecting from and receiving damage.
dropBackpackOnDeath (Default: true)
Not sure why anyone would disable this, but here’s an option that, when disabled, makes backpacks drop their items instead of trying to place themselves on the ground when the wearer dies.
enableBackpackInteraction (Default: true)
Again, you are a horrible person if you disable this. Just kidding. When this option is disabled, players can’t access the backpacks that other players have equipped.
Reinforced Chest / Locker options
reinforcedColumns (Default: 13)
For people who think reinforced containers are too large there’s an option to make them smaller (9 or 11 columns). Before you ask: No, there won’t be an option to make them larger or give them different sizes depending on the container’s material.
Cardboard Box options
cardboardBoxRows (Default: 1)
Changes the size of cardboard boxes. Can go up to a chest worth (3 rows) of items.
cardboardBoxUses (Default: 4)
This is the number of times cardboard boxes can be picked up when containing items before they break. Set to 0 to have them never break.
cardboardBoxShowContents (Default: true)
If for some reason you want to disable the cardboard box tooltip showing its contents, you can do it using this.
Crafting Station options
enableStationAutoCrafting (Default: false)
When enabled, allows automated systems to automatically craft items by pulling them out of the bottom of the crafting station.
stationAutocraftDelay (Default: 10)
The time in game ticks (20 ticks ≃ 1 second) it takes for an item to be automatically crafted and then able to be pulled out of the crafting station. This option is primarily for people who want autocraft-enabled crafting stations, but want them to be slower for balance reasons.
Lock / Key options
lockBreakable (Default: true)
Disable this if you’d rather not have locks breakable by attacking them with tools or swords.
enableHelpTooltips (Default: true)
If you’re not a fan of the help tooltips on items, you can disable them with this.
enableWarningMessages (Default: true)
If you’re getting annoyed by warning messages from BetterStorage in the console, you can disable them with this. Note that errors will get printed regardless. If you find something I missed that should be affected by this setting, let me know.
enableChristmasEvent (Default: true)
You monster. Don’t you dare disable this!
