Great april fools joke[edit]

Is it real or not...? Domain name seems to be trust-able. ( is good, right?) Locked chests in-game... seems a bit fake. Germz 18:35, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, they exist. but likey an april fools joke as your title points out. However, this does arise the question of what will happen after april fools day, if they are removed, then the maps that have them will have an item with block data 95, with no corrosponding code, which in normal cases causes a crash instantly Raiu tree 18:41, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Notch could just do an update fixing this. Although I hope for soething more original :D Deepdata 23:02, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
I've used an NBT editor to create these chests in my inventory and they behave exactly as described, so there's no reason to delete this page, except as an anti April's Fool's spoiling action. --Barracuda 18:44, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

...I love Notch right now. Germz 18:48, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Where are these found? --Technoman7 18:51, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Looking at random things on youtube (like, pretty much randomly. Germz 18:55, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

This just in: Going to the store and filling your cart with 10000$ or more worth of items, gives you a seizure. (Makes the shop flash in random colors) Germz 19:00, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

The "raptorize" script references the Konami code:

			//Determine Entrance
			if(options.enterOn == 'timer') {
				setTimeout(init, options.delayTime);
			} else if(options.enterOn == 'click') {
				_this.bind('click', function(e) {
					if(!locked) {
			} else if(options.enterOn == 'konami-code'){
			    var kkeys = [], konami = "38,38,40,40,37,39,37,39,66,65";
			    $(window).bind("keydown.raptorz", function(e){
			        kkeys.push( e.keyCode );
			        if ( kkeys.toString().indexOf( konami ) >= 0 ) {
			    }, true);

I haven't found a way to trigger this, and it seems like it can't be triggered, and if triggered, it would do the same thing as clicking the button (the init() code)...--Ha3 19:32, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

It's triggered by clicking proceed to checkout. It activates a screamer with that little raptor. CowPan 20:43, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

I think he meant an alternate way to activate the script, something with the konami code. Germz 21:04, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
How do you craft it? Drenay 22:11, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
What, the locked chest? You don't, it's generated randomly on the map. Germz 15:26, 1 April 2011 (UTC)


Do these things spawn naturally or can they only be placed by server Ops? --Mr. Fist 01:58, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

As far as I can tell they are naturally spawned, like pumpkins, but not in groups and probably more rare. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 02:38, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

They are useful![edit]

You can build your first-night-shelter around one, so you don’t even have to create/find coal your first night. ‒ Flying sheep 12:50, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Underground chest[edit]

I found a chest underground. Who knows, maybe it might spawn in the Nether? --Dr. Weir 14:37, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

It spawns only in overworld. 06:15, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Weird spawnings?[edit]

Well i found one in the border of a desert and forest, then i saw a tree glowing. i investigated, and saw a chest on the tree. creepy.


User:Platitudinous Should a different page be made for the Supply Crate Key? 2:36 ET, April 2 2011 (lol, what's UTC)

What key? –ultradude25 (T|C) at 23:00, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Lul fail. Thanks, Rocĸetor talk - Edit constructively!! 10:01, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
I see some of us don't understand a certain "element" of the store.. Ordona 17:35, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
User:Platitudinous So is that a yes?
Yeah totally, we'll just make a page on something that doesn't exist, sure. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 00:59, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Pew446: I don't think we should have a separate page for the key. It's not an item you can get in game...

All I can say is: Mods. That can get the key in-game and unlock the chest for all of it's mysterious secrets! Plus, if the key(s) are in the store and somehow able to be purchased, than that means that it COULD be an obtainable item in game. Who knows, though? -Evau1, T.S. 21:04, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

I don't feel I should edit the page, but there is a minor discrepancy...[edit]

While the April 2nd update to the page did add a floating banner which usually blocks the checkout button, one can still click it by using the tab key to switch the active button and press enter on the keyboard.

It can also be clicked if you scroll around so you can click it when the thing isn't in the way, but it's harder then just using Tab and Enter.--YX33A 00:00, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

1.4_01 Removal[edit]

1.4_01's changelog "Removed the April fools joke" so do chests not spawn naturally or is the message just go away? I went on my server and tested real quick, I can still spawn 95. When placed, it is still a glowing chest but can not be interacted with. Pathogen-David 08:46, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Probably to prevent glitches/crashed with player-placed chests. The one I placed on a server is just a glowing chest that if you left click it will disappear and respawn, and no right click option. Ordona 22:01, 5 April 2011 (UTC)


If the Steve Co. Supply Crate is re-added into Minecraft, what new features do you think it could have or that you would like to be added [Crafting Pattern, Removal without TNT, etc.] ? Pressthebutton 18:06, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

I just want a place to store a bunch of stuff in a multiplayer world so griefers can't walk off with it. Some variant of a chest should exist that can only be opened or chopped by the player who created it (or an op). 01:30, 12 December 2013 (UTC)


This should be on "Removed" category instead of "Unused" because Locked Chests have actually been in the game for a short time. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk|Contribs) 14:55, 7 March 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~

'Unused' means that coding for the entity exists, but it never normally appears in-game. 'Removed' is for things that have been taken out entirely. You can edit a map to make a Locked Chest, but there is no way to create a Human. -- Orthotope 20:49, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

In an effort to not sound like a know-it-all, chests CAN be re-added, just uncomment the l ones of code. If they're commented. A comment in Java looks like this:



 /* comment
comment */

And plus, your saying the wiki is a fail? Says the one who didn't sign a post. Derp. -Evau1, T.S. 21:10, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Real fail now[edit]

Yea it looks retarded now. How about just use the old texture and reference the removal/replacement? - Asterick6 (talk) 06:58, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Ok, I've reverted them. - Asterick6 (talk) 01:18, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

They should be added every April Fools as a come-back. ChilledEnderman 06:34, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Texture changed again[edit]

The Beacon texture made the texture change again. TorchicBlaziken 21:02, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't see any differences. It's still the emerald block at the top and bottom and the pink placeholder at the sides. --☺ Sven ? ! 21:41, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Now it looks like Emerald Block (Top,Bottom), Purple unused block (Front), Redstone block the leftover sides Zigzagar 17:08, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

dinosour in gallary?[edit]

why'd you put a dinosour in the gallary? 20:40, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

If you read the Trivia, you'll see why:
"Clicking on the proceed to checkout button triggers a screamer in which a Velociraptor from the movie Jurassic Park will growl loudly and fly across the screen."
--Kahless61 21:22, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Image and stuff[edit]

Some one add

Please =)

--007a83 (Talk|Contribs) 00:17, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Why? 06:13, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Locked chest is NOT removed.[edit]

The locked chest still exist because you can get in 13w03a. But the block had a new texture. It contains the words "missing texture". 17:18, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

XBox 360 /give Command?[edit]

Unless I'm completely mistake, there is no such thing as the /give command on the XBox 360 version of Minecraft. Thus, the below statement is incorrect.

On the Xbox 360 edition, the locked chest is available through inventory mods and with cheats on /give (player) 95 (amount) and emits a strong light. It also has the same texture as other chests in the game (as of the first update) and remains unopenable, however it is destructible once placed and can be picked up and re-placed.

This is also not available in the Creative Mode interface on the 360. Also, there are currently no ways to get inventory mods on the 360 without modding the 360 itself, which is illegal. Therefore, without further updates to the game itself (there is speculation that the game may be getting mod support on a later date), this item is completely unavailable on the 360.--Drachemeister 01:11, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

This block is available using give in using give. Play Xbox 360 more. Also, modding is legal, just Microsoft warranty is automatically void, and or console ban. -- 22:53, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Will these suckers still despawn if placed on an Item Frame[edit]

Will these suckers still despawn if placed on an Item Frame, yo? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk) 08:03, 3 March 2013 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Tested, no. They're not much to look at, though. -- Orthotope 08:58, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

1.8 Locked Chest[edit]

Should it be mentioned (even if just in "See Also") that in 1.8, you can now lock chests using an NBT tag? --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 22:00, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

I added it, if there is any reason to remove it, please mention it here. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 15:25, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Rewrite for style[edit]

How we can rewrite this? Laura Fidalgo (Talk / Contribs) 18:46, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

I would go with the same style as rewriting a block (Obtaining, Usage, ect.). Generation would be noted in obtaining, and the items sold in usage. Also, all history notes should really go in the history section, except one in the main to note removal. KnightMiner (t|c) 21:43, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

The Disambiguation text?[edit]

Even lock chests are removed, the "soul" of it is still remaining, in 1.8 it is "re-added" and can be placed by modifing actual chests. The disambiguation text below:

Can be changed to:

Also, locked chests is a way to spot a noob (since 1.8). isn't it? -- 09:58, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Don't think that change is needed. GoandgooTalk
11:50, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Should we delete the old locked chest texture?[edit]

I think that the old texture shouldn't placed there.

I have removed the old texture. Revert it if nesserary.

What kind of loot do they have? Or is it even possible to open one? 16:09, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

It is not possible to even open one. 09:14, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
