Locked Chest
First Appearance 1.4 April Fools update
Type of Block Solid Block
Tool Used None (cannot be mined nor picked up)
Data Values Hex: 5F
Obeys Physics?
The Locked Chest is part of the 1.4 April Fools update by Notch. Their texture is the same as the chest texture (Before Beta 1.8.1). They will also glow with a luminance of 15, identical to Glowstone. They have been removed from the game as of 1.7 (and have been replaced by stained glass), and they can only be obtained in versions prior to 1.7. However, even in versions which the locked chest is not removed, the only way to obtain it is to use the /give command. Locked Chests cannot be mined, nor can they be blown up using TNT. Since 1.4, they have had a purple/Emerald texture, and they also decay after a random interval of time. Their data value/ID is 95. The April fools joke is when you open it is says you need a key from the minecraft store. When the person buys it a pop up of a Jurassic Park Velociraptor made by Stan Winston studios (NOTE it's actually the one from the sequel The Lost World Jurassic Park) while a track from Jurassic Park plays that is called Eye to Eye. When the persons gets over 10,000 in purchaces a message appears saying please exit if you are prone to seizures. This causes the screen to flash different colors. The store was removed completely from the game in Beta 1.7.
