    Basic Information

    Brief Summary:
    Better Container Locks

    Where would this idea be applied:
    All of the above

    Please describe the suggestion:
    The container lock feature is a nice take on the old "Lockette" plugin, allowing a sign to be placed on a chest in order to lock it to a certain user.

    However, when using the most efficient storage system, it is not possible to lock chests (screenshot relevant). Since I need to have the front of the chest clear, chests next to each other in this way are not lockable.

    I would like to be able to choose which side of the chest to place the lock sign on to, so instead of having to have the front of the chest clear, I can place the container lock on the side of the chest to allow them to be stacked closely like this (I would place them on the back side here for easy access). I don't want to have to tear down my entire storage system to fix this problem. :(

    UPDATE: I was shown a hacky, yet genius way to get the sign on the side, although I still think the sign should be placed on whatever face of the chest you right click on. Or, as someone said, remove the sign altogether.

    Actually it is possible to do that xD I can show u on TFI if u want me to, just pm me in game.

    However, i think if we can make it something else instead of a sign(maybe nothing at all to take up a block's space), that would be even better, and easier to build things.
