Few Questions:
1: how long do we have to change before an admin removes our hoppers?
2: what do we do if we have 2 farms in the same chunk like I have a cactus and an IG in the same chunks, i don't want to make asorting system as it causes more lag.
3: will these crop hoppers work the same as saicos? on there, cactus farms don't need gaps for the cactus to fall to the bottom, the entire chunk can be cactus or sand or string and the hoppers pick it up very quickly meaning it would land on a cactus and be destroyed, but the crop hoppers pick them up before this.
Edit: I can rephrase that last one if needed but it is hard to explain.

Its a very good idea!
But I can imagne that if u drop accidently an item in a chunk with a crop hopper that you have to go to the chests and search it.

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 /converthopper - 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.
These sound awesome! As I don’t have a really beefy computer these should help with lag issues within my faction!

I just have a few questions, how do you link a crop hopper to a chest system like this I dont know a way it can be done.
Also there seems to be a dominant crop hopper, like if you have 4 crop hoppers in one chunk only one will pick stuff up 90% of the time.

Just direct it to your hoppers system like you would a normal hopper

It seems as though a certain topic isn’t being addressed. According to other members on the forums, there appears to be a “dominant crop hopper”. Will anything be done to address this, or was the crop hopper system implemented expecting only one crop hopper per chunk? @WelshAlex

You should only need 1 crop hopper per chunk, pick up and transfer rates were quick enough to keep up with my base which has a lot of grinders.

The old JacksonArizona would have made fun of how inaccurate that statement was and then call you out for a lack of intelligence. I would then proceeed to tell you in a harsh way that you are not fit for managing a minecraft server and should move out of your parents basement to get a job. Fortunately, I am a brand new person (And I know that you get triggered extremely easy as you have proved when you banned NothinButMuffin, Rapping, Tree, and countless others for reasons like that)instead I will say: Oh! My bad dad, ur very smart!
Also plz watch my distrack kthxbye
