New Duplication Glitch
While this cheat may not work in future, you can still use it now. Duplicate items in your game by taking two identical items and putting one of the items in the dispenser. Take the other item and put it in the furnace slot where the coal does not go. Move the cursor over it while holding the button ‘A’. Now ask a friend to break the dispenser and that item will drop. Since you cannot pick that item up, walk and stand over it. Open and check the inventory where that item is at. Move the item to a different position in the inventory. When you do so, you will leave behind as many as 64 of the same item. Lastly, go to a chest and drag the item to any empty slot but don’t place all in. Hold ‘X’ and place one item until the slot is filled up with 64 items.
