Custom Chest Loot

Read more articles from the Gameplay section

Kits can make Minecraft much more interesting, combining useful items together in a theme.  We use kits to make chest loot much more exciting on Smellycraft!  The loot found in Vanilla Minecraft is pretty boring, and not always helpful.  Pretty often you get a chest that’s just pure junk.  Our worlds are generated with entirely customized loot tables to better reward your effort!

This may include useful resources, interesting blocks, powerful equipment – and even Kits!  You can recognize the powerful Kits as coloured shulker boxes hiding cozily within the chest itself.

These chests are part of our core gameplay experience, and are all unlocked.  There are no keys for sale, and no funny business – this loot is first-come, first-serve for all players!

If you’re new to this server and have not visited your Home Region yet, you should go explore it!  Loot Tables automatically fill newly opened chests, and new players are automatically assigned to less populated regions.  This means you have a very good chance of encountering some of the loot below!

Shulker Kits

Differently coloured Kits contain items for different, specific purposes.  They vary in rarity and quality, with the best items being hardest to obtain.  Travelling to other worlds, locating buried treasure and diving for shipwrecks are good ways to find the rarest loot.

The kits themselves are randomly generated the first time a chest is opened.  The contents are also randomly generated, within parameters provided to guarantee some form of effective payoff.  We’ll provide enough detail here to encourage some excitement without completely ruining the surprise for you!

Items Found Alongside Kits

In addition to certain kits and depending on location, chests you open will contain a variety of loose items.  We’ve broken them down into categories and worked to ensure they are evenly distributed throughout the worlds, with the more exotic items found more frequently in more exotic destinations.  Each chest you find will have kits, food, actual treasure and also the following items.


Chests found in our worlds will always contain a potion.  The type will be determined according to a random chance, as well as where the chest is found.  Helpful potions will be drinkable, and harmful potions will be splash potions.

Mob Eggs

We have tried to make sure the eggs are all available for the well-travelled players.  You will usually find them in thematically appropriate locations.  For example, the Elder Guardian spawn egg will be found in the Underwater Ruins of Odyssea.

Bonus Items

Items such as Elytra, the Totem of Undying, Horse Armor and more are spread throughout the chests of each world.  Some of the nicer items will occur less frequently than their counterparts.  Items of lesser value may also appear in quantities of more than one.  We try to make sure each find is more rewarding than the traditional bits of string and gunpowder!
