NOTICE

Are you sure you want to report this?

When you are making your redstone suggestions, please note that Java and Bedrock will not have the exact same the same redstone systems - this would require redoing redstone system completely on one platform or the other. The two systems are functionally different and are going to stay that way. Please be sure to tag your suggestions with (Java) or (Bedrock).

    Ooooh a new ClayGoddessSari post. Finally, some decently thought-through feedback :P

    So is this basically a hopper, but upside-down and with inverted responses to redstone power? Interesting. I assume this would work with your previous item tube idea?

    It was actually born from posting the item tube idea on the minecraft discord and talking about other options.  I mostly volunteered to put the pieces together and post it here. x3

    I think it would work well with item tubes, and might cause them to not have the ability to transport items upwards.  Although it is an entirely self contained idea as well.

    Why not just allow for normal hoppers to be placed facing upwards? This would also allow them to suck item from blocks below and keep the functionality we know of existing hoppers (i.e. powered hopper is disabled).

    I've been thinking about posting this for years just I never got to it.

    We need this for simplicity.

    Good idea but there should also be a hopper that looks like two stuck together by the tops and it would act as a basic pipe

    That's... Just a dropper -. _ .-
    Use a dropper facing a chest and put an jtem in it... Power it... PLOP INSIDE!

    I don't think it should be powered. It should simply act the same way as a normal hopper, just upside down.

    Or maybe just changing the way is placed to be able to place it updside-down.

    Wut?
    We already have dispensers and droppers.

    This is not a good enough idea.

    This would make most of my Evoker farms so much easier than getting magma blocks from underneath the sea, or in the Nether, than harvesting all of the sand for glass, and getting packed ice to make a water tube that brings it up and across to the other hoppers that then put it in the chest.

     

    (Btw I use water to put the items in the first hopper which puts it in a zero tic dispenser which shoots it into the water tube. It works well but this idea is the best!)

    I'd like to say, to a lot of people in the comments, that we in fact do have droppers and dispensers. However, they need a redstone *pulse* to work, not a constant signal. You can't stick a level on a dropper and it'll automatically push all items up. I assume an inverse (or just upside-down) hopper would be constantly active, like a hopper. It'd make transporting items upwards much easier than it is right now.

    Well... gravity. It should need a power source because how would an item from a chest be sucked by an unpowered machine on top of it.

    Good idea, but I think a new item for this purpose would be more tedious, maybe instead tweaking the functionality of the hopper would be better?
