Before I get too far into any world to get Applied Energistics or Logistics Pipes systems set up, I usually have a line of chests with signs on so I can organise them manually and find what I need. These are the chests I start off with, and what I keep in them. When some start getting full I usually upgrade them with the Iron Chests mod, and sometimes split them into separate chests when the time comes. Gems & Minerals - Any precious materials such as diamonds and redstone. Metals & Ingots - Any processed metals that are ready to be used. Unprocessed Ores - Any ores that I haven't processed yet. Tools & Armour - Weapons, tools, armour, utilities like torches and saddles, and anything of the sort. Food & Farming - Self explanatory. Seeds & Saplings - Any seeds or saplings that can be planted easily. Flowers - Botania and Biomes O Plenty add a lot of flowers, this helps to keep the chests spacious. Mob Drops - Anything that mobs drop, such as spider eyes, string, and feathers. Machines - Mechanical parts, Components & Parts - Machine parts that can't be used on their own. Pipes, Wires & Cables - Anything that transports energy, redstone, fluids, or items. Magic - Anything magic related. Misc Items - Flint, books, clay, sticks, and stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else. Misc Blocks - Cobblestone, fences, carpenter's blocks, anything that doesn't fit anywhere else. I do occasionally end up with some chests becoming full sooner than others (Gems & Minerals gets full of redstone, coal, and apatite, Misc Blocks with cobblestone and wood, etc.) and these end up either being condensed into blocks or moved to barrels. How do you organise your chests?
