Usage[edit]

Ender chests can be opened by pressing use. If a solid block is placed over an ender chest, it will not be able to open.

Ender chests can be used like chests, except all ender chests in the world share the same inventory, including in separate dimensions. The ender chests inventory is also separate for each player. Ender chests contain 27 slots for storage, and can be placed next to other ender chests without joining.

Ender chests cannot be moved by pistons and will not interact with hoppers, droppers, or comparators.

History[edit]

Official release
1.3.1 12w21a The Ender chest was added to the game and shared the same inventory for all players on a server; Jeb stated that this would be changed to a separate inventory for every player in snapshot 12w24a.[5]
The Ender chest was based off a suggestion thread on Reddit.[1][2] This idea was previously made into a mod by Ecu and ChickenBones.[3]
In response to some users' feelings on the functionality of Ender Chests, Jeb planned to test a feature he has yet to specify in relation to them.[4]
12w24a Ender chests now work per-player in multiplayer (holds an inventory per player instead of shared across the world).
Ender chests drop 8 obsidian when destroyed, except when mined with a pickaxe enchanted with Silk Touch.
1.8 14w29a Now shows the cracking animation.
Console Edition
TU14 Added Ender chests.

Trivia[edit]

  • An Ender Chest's particles exist only in a 1-block radius, so if the Chest is placed next to a wall its particles will not be seen on the other side.
  • Unlike Chests, changes to an Ender Chest's name are not reflected in its inventory GUI.
  • Like the Flower Pot and Item Frame, its idea was suggested by a reddit post.
