AllTheItems is a simple coremod for Minecraft which eliminates the vanilla behavior of combining items on the ground into item stacks.
Why would you possibly want to do that, you might ask? Well, a practical reason would be in testing a mod. But the more likely reason is for nostalgia, since this was the standard behavior in Minecraft 1.2.5 and earlier. There’s a distinct difference in walking through a bunch of items and hearing the rapid item collection sound, as opposed to picking up a couple or so item stacks. Some people found the older method more rewarding when mining, which this brings back.
As of v1.1, you can type /toggleitemgrouping into the console to toggle this behavior.
