Is your base still quite small and is already filled with chests everywhere? Well, if you are looking for the perfect storage solution that will make your storage area a lot more organized and efficient, you are in luck as in this article, we will show you how to stack chests in Grounded.
It is also worth mentioning that you should definitely be looking to adopt this strategy, especially as a lot of new items and features will be getting added onto the game in the very near future. So, you should get yourself ready and prepped up for the exciting future ahead.
Stacking Chests From Scratch
So, before you get started with this, you will need to have the ability to build ramps, floors, and walls. This is because they will almost act as a support system in replacement of the ramps. Confused? Don’t worry, just follow the step by step guide below.
For the structure in the image above, you will need the following:
- 6x Floors
- 12x Ramps
- 4x Walls
Note: You can build this storage stacking area as high and as wide as you want, in case your need to store more food and clean water. Below, you will find the exact structure for the storage displayed in the image above.
- First and foremost, find a flat surface where you want to build this compact storage area.
- Then, as per the image above, proceed to place four ramps right next to each other. If you want more storage space, you can do 6, 8, 10, and so on.
- After that, place 2 pieces of floor right above the ramps, right next to each other.
- Once the first layer is done, jump on the floors and then place four more ramps on top of the floors. It should quite literally make a “sandwich” of ramp-floor-ramp.
- Then, proceed to follow steps 3 and 4 until you reach your ideal height.
- After placing down three sets of ramp and floor, you should get something like the image above.
- Then, proceed to stack two walls on each side, one above the other. This will allow you to support the whole structure, meaning that you can now remove the ramps if you wish to.
- Then, you can start to place down all of your chests. Bare in mind that with this structure, you can place a maximum of four chests on each row.
Benefits of Stacking Chests
One of the evident benefits of stacking chests is that the space in your base can be utilized a lot more efficiently. Also, you can more easily organize and access pretty much any chest from a single point.
If you decide to build higher though, you could even allow some space to build additional ramps that will allow you to climb higher. We would recommend you to go higher if you could as that will make access for thief ants to the chests a little bit more difficult. If you are struggling with ants and would like some guidance on how to prevent ants from stealing, you can read our blog on this topic.
Pro Tip: If you want to stack more chests in the same structure as above, you can simply put those chests sideways. Yes, it will not be as aesthetically appealing but if you are after efficiency, then perhaps you should take that into consideration when you begin building your very own storage unit.
