    Hey, I want to suggest to make a loot filter in the ArcHopper (one like in a forged spawner) so you can choose what loot will the ArcHopper collect, I got this idea because on my island I have IG farm under my cactus farm, I wanted to put a ArcHopper to collect IG loot and move it quickly to a chest system, but because the IG farm is under my cactus farm the ArcHopper also collects the cactus from above and it causes problems in my sorting system. It would have been really cool if you added this feature. I have added a poll to to see if the other players also want this feature.

    +1, seems like a very useful idea. It will also increase the value of ArcHoppers.

    Loki and I looked at this and for what I remember it was causing way too many issues when he was creating them.

    If it can't be fixed, item filters with redstone are super easy then you can sift off loot in different directions

    It's a good idea, but I don't think it would work and may just create more lag

    if so they probably lowered hopper ticks for no reason again, check how many items it moves per tick
