    I've been playing the beta server for a little while now and have found many of the item collection systems don't function correctly, often due to the slow rate at which hoppers take in items. Large rail lines with minecarts or big hopper lines create lots of server lag, as well as items sitting on the ground or falling through a farm. Most of this would be solved by including the crop hopper, which instantly collects crops of a determined type, from anywhere inside the chunk the hopper is placed in. This item has a massive effect on reducing server lag, and does away with the need for vanilla redstone collection systems.

    The pipes plugin, called Transport-Pipes, replaces the need for long hopper lines or dispenser clocks into water streams, and replaces them with super fast transferring glass pipes. Reducing the likely hood of item build up due to hopper slowness, and also general hopper lag. These pipes can also be used to filter items with signs and item ids. As I've had no luck creating vanilla item sorters due to the hopper issue.

    Maybe these could be tested on the beta server? any feedback is greatly appreciated. -George

    We've taken some ideas into consideration and are currently testing a new custom plugin for hoppers. We'll give you better insight once all is confirmed and tested on our Beta server.
