    Wow. Thanks! That's super cool. Also, that snake is adorable; quite a feat for a snake.

    So I found this design in various places. Is there no way to avoid that hideous Redstone + at ground-level with the grass block? I've been tinkering for an hour and have made no progress. x_x



    EDIT: For clarity, I mean move it somewhere underground, not, like, build around it. Ideally I want only the dispenser exposed.

    Wow. That's...such a simple solution... And with the proper timing it should work just fine. If the cart stays under the chest long enough to get at least 2 items per chest, that would solve the problem perfectly.

    EDIT: Tinkering around in creative, seems like 5 repeaters, 4 on 4-delay, 1 on 1-delay will let them pick up 33 items If you remove one more delay tick, it only gets 31.

    There's also a slight problem with your arrangement, the detector rail on top of the hopper will prevent that hopper from accepting items, but that's easily remedied (just mentioning it for anyone who might come here later).

    I've been trying to build this design:

    But the carts don't load up enough once they're empty to feed all the furnaces. One way to start to fix the problem would be if I could 'turn off' four of the five slots in the hopper, but I don't know how to do that for the smelting slot. The fuel slot is easy, I just put non-fuel blocks in there and they *can't* go into the fuel slot, but the smelting slot seems to take anything and everything, even if it can't be smelted.

    So can anyone help me fix the problem? Or is this design just one that looks like it works until you try to use it for an extended period of time at which point it 'breaks' (or just has to be scaled down to 6 or so furnaces)?
