The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I always ended up with chests filled with dirt and cobblestone that's why I made this small mod.
basically, you can now place 9 blocks of the same kind in a crafting table to make a compressed version of that block.
You can get your blocks back placing the compressed block.
It works with dirt, cobblestone, sand, gravel and wood planks.
I tried to cover blocks that always uses a lot of storage space but if you want other blocks to have a compressed version just let me know.
I also, thought about a special block that let you compress a full stack of blocks instead of just 9, but i wasn't sure if someone have a HUGE excess of materials, so...
