How do you make hoppers go into chests?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To make hoppers go into chests, you will need to understand the mechanics of hoppers and how they interact with other blocks. Hoppers are a useful item transportation tool in Minecraft, allowing you to transfer items between different containers.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make hoppers go into chests:

1. Gather the necessary materials: You will need hoppers, chests, and optionally a redstone clock and a dispenser. Hoppers can be crafted using iron ingots, and chests can be crafted using wooden planks.

2. Place the chest: Decide where you want to place the chest that will receive the items from the hoppers. Right-click on the block where you want the chest to be placed, and it will appear.

3. Place the hoppers: Position the hoppers above or next to the chest. To place a hopper, simply right-click on the block where you want the hopper to be placed. The hopper will face towards you when placed, and you can adjust its orientation by right-clicking on it with a tool.

4. Connect the hoppers: To make the hoppers flow into each other and eventually into the chest, you need to connect them. Right-click on the back of the hopper to open its GUI (Graphical User Interface), and then right-click on the top of another hopper to connect them. Repeat this process until all the hoppers are connected in the desired direction towards the chest.

5. Optional: Use a redstone clock and dispenser: If you want the items from the hoppers to be automatically dispensed into lava or a cactus block, you can add a redstone clock and a dispenser to the setup. A redstone clock is a mechanism that generates a continuous redstone signal, causing the dispenser to activate periodically. Connect the dispenser to the last hopper in the chain using redstone dust or redstone torches. Then, wire a redstone clock to the dispenser, which will repeatedly activate it and dispense the items.

6. Test and refine: Once you have set up the hoppers and any additional components, it’s time to test the system. Place some items into the first hopper, and they should flow through the connected hoppers and into the chest. If the items are being dispensed into lava or a cactus block, check the redstone clock and dispenser setup to ensure it is functioning correctly.

It’s worth noting that hoppers have a limited transfer rate of 2.5 items per second, so if you have a large amount of items to transport, you may need to consider using multiple hoppers and chests or using other item transportation methods.

Remember to be mindful of the placement and orientation of the hoppers and chests to ensure the items flow in the desired direction. Experimentation and adjustments may be necessary to fine-tune your setup and achieve the desired functionality.

I hope this detailed guide helps you understand how to make hoppers go into chests in Minecraft. Have fun experimenting and creating efficient item transportation systems in your game!
