Its no secret that 1.17 is gonna be a massive update to generation, but what I and a lot of other players did not expect is how many items and blocks they would be adding. The update is still 4-5 months away, and we already have 98 new items (not including spawn eggs). With the ever expanding collection of items, do shulker boxes and chest cut it anymore?
The nether update was also massive, adding 76 new items (excluding mob spawn eggs). That's a total of 174 new items and blocks, with only the bundle to compensate for this massive amount of items.
Now the bundle is a great addition for the items you collect small amounts of every so often, like the foliage from lush caves and the nether warped and crimson plants, but what about when you want to collect large amounts of these? They quickly fill your inventory, and storage is even more complicated as you need so many chests to somewhat organize the insane amount of items. Lets not forget smaller/single stack size items like enchanted books, potions… these clog up your inventory extremely fast and bundles don't fix this issue either.
This inventory overload issue has been around since 1.7, and has only gotten worse with each update adding over 50 new items.
I'm not a genius or anything, but I think minecrafts inventory issue needs to be addressed eventually and hopefully this sparks some discussion.
