A chest with infinite of one item?

    I am just getting in FTB after a long break from Tekkit, and honestly I hate mining out huge amounts of materials, or even getting to the point of quarries. So my plan was to simply spawn in any items you would get from mining - mostly ores, redstone, some of the TC stuff, etc. Sort of a stepping stone from survival to creative. I realize its pretty cheaty, but hey I'm playing single player so I'm going to what I want ;P.

    But I was wondering if it was possible to do was to make a chest with an infinite amount of certain items? Like, I plonk down a chest and do something to it, and I can just pull as much iron ore out of that chest as I need to without it emptying? Maybe something with NEI, or what? If not that's fine, but I'd love to know :). Thanks in advance for any help ;D

    A deep storage unit or quantum chest might be good.

    You could take a Deep Storage Unit and shove a ton of iron in there, you'd never have to worry about it again.
    Otherwise I think there's an MCedit filter that does that with dispensers but I have no idea if it works in FTB.

    Ah, so FTB has some absurdly huge chests I could just fill it? That'd be a good work-around, thanks guys :D

    Yeah the DSU stores the number limit of one of the java parameters(I forgot which) It's somewhere around 2.150 billion.

    A few of them are:
    Barrels, holds 64 stacks (just over the amount of a double chest)
    Upgraded barrels, holds something like 1024 stacks.
    Deep storage unit, I believe holds 2 million of the item but I'm 90 percent sure that's wrong
    Quantum Chest, ridiculously expensive (but I believe you'll cheat one in) and I've never made one so I'm not sure.

    Ya, I'll probably just have a room with a bunch of cheated in Quantum Chests filled with the items I've decided I'll allow myself to bring in. Thanks :D

    I also believe that TUbestuff adds a dupelicator that you could pipe out into a chest

    It doesn't play nice with machines though. It'll either turn into a stack + 47 or just one piece.

    I wonder if you could use Applied energistics to pull whole stacks really quickly from an immibis tubestuff duplicator?
    tubestuff also has a liquid duplicator. If you put a bucket of what you want in it you can pump it out forever with liquiducts. I got an eternal fuel boiler like that once!

    Duplicator from Tubestuff.
    But you can only pull from it with Automation.

    I've seen a guy with a deep storage unit with more than 20,000,000 cobble so those things are probably the way to go, pretty cheap as well
