Storage is important in the world of Garden Paws, where collecting items is an essential part of gameplay. Without a place to put all of the items the you gather, you would quickly run out of inventory space.

Thankfully there are many storage items available over the course of the game.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Most storage items in the game are craftable, though some crafting recipes must be unlocked through quests or Blueprints. Other storage items can be purchased from shopkeepers or received as quest or minigame rewards.

Types of Storage Items[edit | edit source]

Storage items fall into four broad categories: General, Display, Limited, and Decorative.

General Storage[edit | edit source]

General storage items are recognizable storage objects that are capable of storing any kind of item in the game.

Limited Storage[edit | edit source]

Limited storage items are containers with limits for what type of items can be placed inside.

Decorative Storage[edit | edit source]

Decorative storage covers containers that either blend in as decorations, are not immediately obvious as containers, or seem like they might have limited storage based on their names and how they look, but they can in fact hold any items in the game:

Auto Deposit[edit | edit source]

There is a useful feature in the game called "Auto Deposit". If you are near a storage container that has items inside, pressing "F" will dump any of those same items from your inventory right into the chest, without having to open the chest.

This makes sorting items and decluttering your inventory much faster.

Auto deposit will only work if at least 1 of that same item is already in that storage container.

Container Overwriting[edit | edit source]

The problem: Sometimes if two of the same type of storage containers occupy the same space (touching or overlapping), an overwrite can happen where the contents of box X get copied into box Y, replacing whatever was in box Y.

The replacement is permanent, so any items lost will not be retrievable unless you restore a previous save file from before the overwrite happened. But the restore option is only possible if you have not played past the 10-day save backup window.

Why this happens: Each container type has an ID dependent on the container itself, not its contents. So if 2 or more are sharing the same space, the game gets confused about which one is actually in that spot, or thinks both are the same item, hence the overwriting.

Currently the only way to prevent this is to make sure you don't have multiples of the same storage item (2 gem crates, 2 sheds, etc) too close or overlapping.

Precautions:

  • Empty all containers before moving them or placing similar ones nearby, and only put the items back when the containers are in the positions you want.
  • To be absolutely certain, keep the containers empty and sleep or pass out to save the day, and put the items back in the morning.

Auto Deposit with Collector Habitats[edit | edit source]

  • Using Auto Deposit on a habitat that collects or produces item drops (Apiary, Butterfly Garden, Ferret Habitat, etc) causes the respective items to disappear despite the animation showing the items being thrown inside. The lost items are not retrievable without restoring a saved game.
  • Using Auto Deposit on an Apiary or Butterfly Garden that has 1 or more empty bottle slots will place an entire stack of the respective bottles into the first empty slot instead of 1 per slot. The stack may not be retrievable without restoring a saved game.
