Stack limitation

Main article: Storage/Stack#Stack_limitation

All chests allow the player to disable the use of some slots in the chest. This allows the player to set a limit on the number of item stacks that can be put in the chest. This limit might be useful for controlling the production or movement of a certain item, for example.
