Basket Case

Just in case you need baskets in your Minecraft world.

Basket Case is a small Minecraft mod that adds wicker baskets as a new form of storage. Baskets can be used decoratively, but they are also a handy form of portable storage. This convenience comes with a few minor tradeoffs. They take a little work to make, and they only hold so much.

Baskets come in three sizes—small, medium, and large—and hold less than a chest. The following screenshots show the basket inventories with some items and blocks from Basket Case and Primal Lib.

Baskets are made from wicker, which is made from plant materials like twigs, bark strips, vines, reeds, and grass. Baskets can carried in your hot bar, and they can be opened while you carry them. Baskets are convenient to pick up with a sneak-right-click.



Basket Case was built for the Java edition of Minecraft using the Forge modding API. In addition to Forge, version 2 of Basket Case also requires you to install the Primal Lib mod. Check the What’s New page for specifics on what version of Minecraft, Forge, and Primal Lib you will need to run a given version of Basket Case.

If you have never installed mods built with Forge before, I highly recommend the following articles from How To Geek:

  • How to Install Minecraft Mods to Customize Your Game—This article explains what mods are, why you might want to use them, how to stay safe with mods, and how to do a basic installation using the vanilla game launcher. However, once you get to the heading titled “Installing Your First Mod,” you should jump to the following article for the actual installation.
  • How to Manage Minecraft Instances and Mods with MultiMC—This article shows you how to install and run a modded Minecraft game in an organized and sustainable way using MultiMC. I highly recommend using MultiMC instead of the vanilla Minecraft launcher if you are using mods.
