    Hi there.

    A friend of mine and me spent the evening creating an item sorter. Since this server has some weird problems (no Minecart with chests allowed, hoppers have a strange behavior due to antilag etc.) we took quite a while to come up with a working system.

    May I present you: The U12-2-7 Item Sorter. It is a water-slide based hopper item sorter.


    The whole construction

    Maintenance level for the different systems

    The U12-Item Injector (12 Dropper)

    Some (not so clean) circuits for the injection

    It features:

    - A reentry system for items that are either not sortable or have lagged over the hoppers
    - 6 tick clock with 12 item injectors
    - Very high storage capacity
    - Modular and infinitely expandable
    - Very fast
    - Made in Germany quality and therefore hundreds of prohibition signs :D

    Drawbacks:
    - Physics Based, thus not server-lag resistant
    - Clicking noise from injectors
    - Occasional item loss due to glitching or item cleanup

    Sooo... enough with the showoff. We are currently curious. Is something like this the most efficient item sorter design? What are your builds? Are they more efficient? Feel free to criticize :)

    Have a nice day!

    If you shift right click on a hopper you can add a filter to it. They have built in Filters (this is why filters do not work in a normal way, theyre not needed)

    Aside from that it looks good. German engineering shall never be flawed

    Ah yes, forgot to mention that. That's how it works. The droppers inject the items in the water stream, which carries them over the various (filtered) hoppers. But is that really the reason for the strange behavior, that they only carry 32 items at a time?

    Most likely because the hopper transfer speeds are 32 items (idk how many ticks). Hoppers have always had issues though on skyblock. You can feel free to report any issues you find in the "Bugs and issues" section.
