[Guide] Craftbook's [Collect] / [Deposit] System

AusCraft Collect/Deposit Minecart Mechanic Guide:



Collect/Deposit is a Craftbook mechanic (Wanderer rank required) that allows a minecart chest to take out items from a chest as well as put them back in creating a lag friendlier alternative to using hoppers.

How do they work:

Basic:

The basic setup of this mechanic requires rail, a sign, a chest, an iron ore, and a minecart chest. This is the most basic placement of these items. Running a redstone signal into a [Collect] or [Deposit] Sign will block them from activating.

[Deposit] sign:
To deposit the contents of a chest into a chest minecart, place a sign on an Iron Ore and on the second line of the sign write [Deposit]



Once exiting the sign, you will receive a message in chat confirming that you have created the mechanic.




[Collect] sign:
To collect the contents of a minecart chest into a chest, place a sign on an Iron Ore and on the second line of the sign write [Collect]



Once exiting the sign, you will receive a message in chat confirming that you have created the mechanic.




Advanced:

Collect/Deposit signs can determine the contents of the chests and minecart chest allowing for the designation of specific items to be transferred. This is an incredibly useful tool for build like auto sorters and mob farms.

Specified [Deposit] sign:

Assigning items to the [Deposit] sign will result in the minecart chest only removing the specified items from the designated chest.

To APPLY items to the sign, hold the item you wish to be added in your main hand and SHIFT + RIGHTCLICK the [Deposit] sign.

You should receive a message in chat confirming the addition to the sign.

To REMOVE items that have been added to the sign you can SHIFT + RIGHTCLICK the sign with the item again or alternatively SHIFT + LEFTCLICK the sign to display all current items added to it in the chat, then click REMOVE in chat on the item you wish to remove from the mechanic.

Specified [Collect] sign:

Assigning items to the [Collect] sign will result in the designated chest only removing the specified items from the minecart chest. A [Collect] sign that has no items defined will collect all the contents of the minecart chest that can possibly be stored in the collect chest.

To APPLY items to the sign, hold the item you wish to be added in your main hand and SHIFT + RIGHTCLICK the [Collect] sign.

You should receive a message in chat confirming the addition to the sign.

To REMOVE items that have been added to the sign you can SHIFT + RIGHTCLICK the sign with the item again or alternatively SHIFT + LEFTCLICK the sign to display all current items added to it in the chat, then click REMOVE in chat on the item you wish to remove from the mechanic.

To view a list of all items added to either a [Collect] or a [Deposit] sign, Simply hold SHIFT and LEFTCLICK the sign



Warning:

If a minecart chest is full and attempts to pick up items from a [deposit] sign, all items in that deposit chest will be deleted as the system cannot move it properly. This alternatively is an incredibly easy/fast deletion system.



It is recommended to use a single chest for [Deposit] chests to avoid over filling the minecart chest.

Good bye 64 x Ancient Debris and 64 x Diamond Blocks :frown:
Haha, awesome guide Yamo
 
The new craftblock system is great for making sorters! A couple people have been talking about items that don't work correctly with the craftblock system (the game double-clicks the sign and removes it immediately, similar to the subdivide claim issue in the nether) and I've been putting together a list of the items I found that don't work.

The non-exhaustive list appears below:

Leather, Rabbit leather, ink, membrane, spider eye, ghast tear,
glowstone, ender pearl, blaze powder, magma cream, sugar, flint,
wheat, gunpowder, totems, maps, dyes, cd's buckets of fish, arrows,
feathers, bones, bone meal, nuggets gold/iron, ingots gold/iron,
 
Following Lestrange’s post, some of the items on the list won’t work one time, then will work again later. I’ve managed to get ended pearls and buckets of fish to work, as well as a few food items that previously didn’t work. Seems very inconsistent so give everything a try.

Cheers for the feedback guys.
I've sent your messages to the developer to update him on what else isn't working.

We'll have this fixed as soon as possible!
 
Oof, didn't realize it deleted items until it was too late, lost a whole bunch of iron from my iron farm while trying to set up a transfer system, oopsie
