This topic is nothing more or less then a impuls to share the completion of the NBT chest files.I've used LanToasters TileEntities ( Random Chests ) which can be found here:
I've just spend a couple of hours to figure out how to get them working properly. As I did I figured some things where either not working or outdated. This resulted in the fact that I needed to manually replace each chest line within all my bo3's.
To be exact it where 987 Chests within 146 Bo3's. And even now I've missed some which I will search up and edit.
Here's a rater pointless screenshot of a random chest content! Which I ( Believe it or not ) am VERRY happy about
I just spent some time going through probably the same process you did. With some help from a friend I got lantoasters basic random loot generating in my world! Of course, now I have to go through and replace a whole bunch of lines with the random loot branch but this will be an awesome feature in my world!
Watch out and make backups, I´ve spend day´s fixing issue´s If you'd like I'll rater save you guys the trouble and give the script haha ( However, thumbs up if you actually get it working! )
The reason I eventiually gave up is because things became too messy by taking a wrong turn somewhere together with the fact I knew i could make a chest script.
Also, the chest script can be made biome specific ( Love those clean files while knowing the chests will be filled )
