i3 is a next-generation inventory for Minetest.

This mod features a modern, powerful inventory menu with a good user experience. i3 provides a rich API for mod developers who want to extend it.

List of features:
  • Crafting Guide (survival mode only)
  • Progressive Mode┬╣
  • Quick Crafting
  • 3D Player Model Real-Time Preview
  • Isometric Map Preview
  • Inventory Sorting (+ options: compression, reverse mode, automation, etc.)
  • Item List Compression (moreblocks is supported)
  • Item Bookmarks
  • Waypoints
  • Bags
  • Home

┬╣ This mode is a Terraria-like system that shows recipes you can craft from items you ever had in your inventory. To enable it: i3_progressive_mode = true in minetest.conf.

This mod officially supports the following mods:

To use this mod in the best conditions:

  • Use LuaJIT
  • Use a HiDPI widescreen display
  • Use the default Freetype font style

If the inventory's font size is too big on certain setups (namely Windows 10/11 or 144 DPI display), you should lower the value of the setting display_density_factor in your minetest.conf. Note that the change is applied after restart.


i3 uses a larger inventory than the usual inventories in Minetest games. Thus, most chests will be unadapted to this inventory size. The i3 inventory is 9 slots wide by default, such as Minecraft.

Do you recommend this mod?

  • Maybe a bit too many generations ahead

    This is an amazing use of the formspec API, and looks quite good, but may be a little ahead of its time, it doesn't fit very well with the rest of the quick and simple formspecs in Minetest Game & mods

    Despite that this'll probably be my goto inventory mod, it's the best I've found so far and you can get used to things not fitting right in the mod soup that is my survival world

  • awesome inventory GUI

    version 5.4.0+ needed (!!) one of the best new inventory GUI i ever have seen before, keep up the good work and more features and replacements wanted from the dev.

    it is very easy to configure the inventory with this great mod.

  • I love the interface!

    Thank you jp for this mod! Amazing, I love the 3d player. But there is a glitch/bug whenever I do anything in the invetory, turn the page, get an item, etc. the 3d model's back turns to me. I have no clue why. Anwyays good mod.

  • Very very good inventory mod

    • very good graphics, theme, etc
    • very good API for pages and crafting
    • very fast and bug free

    I really hope mods will add compatibility to this mod soon! I am currently waiting some mods to support it to add it to my server.

  • This mod is super

    I like this mod, it's really cool! Thank you for it

  • Pretty awesome :)

    That inventory mod is pretty awesome.. I'm missing only one big thing. Slots for 3D Armor armors. Thanks for Your work.

  • very good

    wow, it was really cool, great job :)
