Hello! First announcement on the new forums about gameplay, woo!

We've just introduced something called Crop Hoppers to both factions gamemodes, and if this trial goes well then we'll also look into adding them to both Skyblock realms.

What are Crop Hoppers and why have you added them?

Crop Hoppers is a plugin that allows players to get a special type of hopper called a Crop Hopper, what this hopper does is picks up ANY mob or farm drops in the chunk in which it's placed. So you can place a Crop Hopper under your creeper farm for example and it will pick up any gunpowder and TNT they drop within the chunk that you placed the Crop Hopper in! (A chunk is a 16x16 block area in Minecraft, and is visible using /f sc on factions!).
This means you just need 1 crop hopper to replace the 256+ hoppers you'd usually use in 1 chunk!
Other than picking up everything in the chunk Crop Hoppers behave exactly like regular hoppers, so you can filter them into your chest system easily which makes converting your grinders simple.

The reason we've added this is because hoppers create a TON of lag, and we hope that by introducing Crop Hoppers we can massively reduce the use of hoppers and as a result reduce lag on gamemodes.

How do we get Crop Hoppers?

It's simple, just hold a hopper in your hand and type /hopper convert - it's free!

Why should my faction use Crop Hoppers?

Because it'll reduce lag, and if you don't then an admin will delete your current hopper system so you'll kind of be forced to use Crop Hoppers!




We've also made adjustments to hoppers behaviour so they now move items a lot quicker than before, so you shouldn't experience any item overflow in your grinders!

As I alluded to earlier this is a trial, which means there will likely be issues surrounding the plugin that we need to fix and it'll also take some time before we can see if it had any real effect on lag because people need time to replace their systems. If it goes well we'll be adding the plugin to Skyblock, if not then we'll be looking for more solutions!
If we do decide to move the plugin onto Skyblock realms we'll let you know on the discord.


[EDIT (RickyB98)]: We have launched working crop hoppers on Skyblock Egyptian, if it works well, we'll apply the changes to Skyblock Galactic as well. Go check it out!

Ok so, right now crop hoppers dont solve anything? They still move painfully slow into chests, only hoppers themselves fill up very fast @WelshAlex

well in skyblock you can make hopper unlaggy its somewhere in the aSkyblock plugin file probably in properties you can higher the tick rate of the hopper so it wont cause any lag.. and i suggest adding mob stacker which can help alot aswell lag side and reduce these random crashes skyblock-e is getting and this can be annoying if we have farms close to each other.. so idk its ur call anyway

I don't really understand your question, can you rephrase?

As for mobs im still probably going to use regular hoppers seeing as using crop hoppers for say cave spiders is unefficient as you can only have that hopper drop into 1 chest below, or if you make a system risk the problem of massive clogging if you have say 5 stacks of cave spiders,
