Natural generation[edit]

Minecarts with chests naturally generate in abandoned mine shafts.

Usage[edit]

Minecarts with chests can be placed by using its item on a rail, the same as minecarts.

Storage minecart's contents can be accessing by pressing Use Item button on them.

Behavior[edit]

The physical properties of minecarts with chests are equal to those of minecarts with hoppers, i.e. the boost they gain from powered rails is dependent on their load. For example, from a 1 powered rail starter track, an empty minecart with chest will go 64 blocks, but a full minecart with chest will go only 16 blocks (opposed to 8 blocks for an empty normal minecart and 80 blocks for an occupied normal minecart). Thus, even an empty minecart with chest doesn't travel as far as an occupied minecart after being boosted. However, they can be pushed by powered minecarts faster than occupied carts.

Another physical property of storage minecarts is their ability to be stacked. Whereas only 3 chests can fit in an area 3 blocks tall, up to 4 storage minecarts can fit in the same area. On the other hand, stacked minecarts are very delicate and can fall apart or make noise if touched.

Trivia[edit]

  • Storage minecarts cannot be destroyed by an Ender Dragon, because the storage minecart is an entity.
  • A piston can push a block into a storage minecart that is not on a rail if there is a block behind the minecart, such that the block and the minecart occupy the same space, and the storage minecart will be still accessable.
  • Storage minecarts don't have an opening animation, unlike regular chests.
