A sack, previously called an empty sand bag, is a container item.



A sack has poor capacity and weight reduction, and is exceeded by the much more common garbage bag. Unlike the other baggage items, a sack cannot be found with items spawned inside, but its filled variants (excluding the compost bag) can be found throughout the world.

Filling with terrain

If the player has a shovel, a sack can be filled with dirt, sand, or gravel. To do so, right-click a patch of grass/dirt, sand, or gravel, and select "Take some [Material]". One sack can be filled with 4 tiles of material, and will be turned into the respective material bag.

Any bag can be emptied onto a tile, changing it to the contained material. Once the bag is emptied, the sack will be returned to the player.

Right-clicking on a full composter while the sack is in the player's hand will display the option to "take compost", upon which the sack will be replaced with a compost bag.
