Upgradable Hoppers

You can now purchase and upgrade special hoppers!

To purchase your upgradable hopper simply do /uhopper get - note that this costs $10000. You can also do /uhopper get <amount> to get more than 1 at once. This hopper will be locked to you - it will have no use for normal block locks and does not push items to a chest under it like a Vanilla hopper!

These hoppers work very differently! By default they will suck up items in a 2x2x2 area around the placed hopper location every 3 seconds and will transfer them to a linked container 8 at a time every 3 seconds. The container it is linked to can be up to 50 blocks away by default - to link it open the hoppers menu by sneak left clicking (sneak punch it!) the hopper and clicking the middle option in the bottom row. Then go and left click the chest to link it to!

hopmenu

On this menu, when you sneak left click/punch the hopper, you will also find a number of upgradable and settable options! These options and upgradables are, in order from left to right, top to bottom:

Hopper Settings

Hopper Item Filter

hopfilter

This option will allow you to set either a blacklist or whitelist (right click to change between these, left click to open the list) of items that you do or do not want your hopper to pick up!

To add to the whitelist/blacklist you simply need to open it and click an item in your inventory to add it’s base item type to the list (it does not take the item out of your inventory), or click the item in the list to remove it! This works off base items only - for example all diamond swords are treated as just diamond swords, regardless of the items name or lore.

Hopper Containers

hopcontainers

This option will let you link the hopper to a container - or containers if you have upgraded! Simple click this option and then go and left click a chest to link the hopper to it, or right click a chest that is already linked to remove it!

Any containers that have been linked will be noted on this option in the hoppers menu with the co-ordinates it can be found at!

Hopper Suction

hopsuction

This option will very simply toggle on/off whether the hopper is actively sucking in items or not!
