Minecraft | A Better Sorting System
Over the many years of playing Minecraft there has always been one thing that is extremely frustrating. Item management.
If you've ever played the game you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Chests stacked on top of chests filled to the brim with random items. You end up on this ridiculous hunt through all of your chests trying to find that "extra stack of iron I know I have.."
Even if you're the type to separate everything into its assigned chests every time you get back to your item storage area, it can still be frustrating! Running from chest to chest to drop off 6 dirt here, 9 diorite here, 37 cobble stone in the chest over there and so on. Props to you for going through the effort but I find it far too annoying to deal with..
BUT THERE'S A BETTER WAY!!!!
Once I progress far enough into the game I generally build an item sorting unit. I do have to go back to the video every time it seems because it may not be complicated but if it's not set up correctly its useless. I've posted the video below that I usually reference for my build. I have changed some things myself to make it work better for me but I'll go into that after the video.
Did you watch it?
Kinda makes sense right? Isn't it exciting to think that you can stop spending your time constantly sorting!!? The build he creates is fairly easy to follow but there are a couple things that I changed up in mine to make it work better (In my opinion).
First thing I changed was how many Blocker blocks are being used. By putting one in 4 of the 5 it stops the hopper from being able to fill up with anything but your selected item but it takes about 41 of your selected item to stack up before it feeds through. If it's cobblestone that won't phase you at all but if you're feeding diamond through the system you won't want to lose 41 of them to make the system work. Instead I found that 4 stacks of 10 Blocker cubes in a hopper (plus your item of choice) means that your item stack only needs to be about 5 instead of 41. I didn't set it up to only use 1 just in case something goes wrong it'll have a little variance and not remove the blocks needed to keep it running properly.
Secondly I wanted the system to be able to hold massive quantities without me ever having to shift things around. This really doesn't change the original system at all aside from just building onto it. The picture above shows how I stacked everything so that the chests are being fed from other chests constantly refilling anything that is taken out.
Put all that together with a nice wall to hide everything behind and you're left with a really good looking storage room!
Item sorting and management is an extremely tedious and frustrating part of any game. Building an item sorting system in Minecraft like in the video above will save you time and effort in the long run.

There's a lot to take in from any E3 event. We've attempted to wrap up Nintendo's showcase is an easy to scroll through format for you to see what catches your eye! Keep checking back to see updated information about each game as it's released.
No Man's Sky. This game has gone through hoops to get to where it is today. Having managed to survive the initial flood of (well deserved) poor reviews, they are now in a position to turn that on it's head. Nothing like the original release, NMS is a game that might just eat up every spare second you have.
Ever fancy yourself maybe building games? Perhaps you've thought about it but never looked into how to get started? Well Nintendo has you covered with their latest release! Game Builder Garage! Game Builder Garage Done in classic Nintendo fashion this "game" walks you through the game creation process.
We all knew it was coming and finally Nintendo has confirmed it. Although they are still pretty tight lipped on what exactly the newest Switch will be called. Hopefully they learned from the ridiculous naming mistake of the Wii U. Nintendo recently started spending more on R&D saying it was for “the next platform”. Now
Now I don't talk about DND much on here and I have never talked about anything that is on Kickstarter but this project warranted a mention. Dungeon Full Dive: Make your tabletop world real! looks like an unbelievable possibility coming to PC and VR. Just watching the video gets me excited about playing a game with frie
Not only due to Covid keeping people at home but for so many other reasons Mario Party has not had the option to play against people who aren't sitting right next to you. I guess Nintendo Finally realized that they were failing badly at the "Party" side of Mario party and have updated the issue! Battle your friends to find out who really is the super star.
Although Super Mario Sunshine has been around for a while it still has a large following. Whether you love the game, hate it or haven't played it still plays a major role on the development of the Mario universe. The real question here is, does it hold up to the test of time?
So you've heard all about how great Valheim is, but you don't have a PC capable of running it. What if you didn't need one?
Playstation has come out with everyone's best interests at heart. Our wallets.
With the free release of 10 games for both 2D and the VR experience you're sure to find something that interests you. Assuming that you play Playstation that is.
I spent a lot of time looking into what games were worth spending money on for my VR headset. After a lot of time looking into what was out there and testing out a bunch of free ones I landed on BeatSaber being my first real purchase.
Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.
Once a year Nintendo's lead character graces us with discounts! Mario Day is upon once again so snap up those savings and expand your gaming library.
The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.
With the latest update to Stardew Valley there’s more reason than ever to get back into the game! Especially if you own it on console. SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP!!!!! This was a long time coming but even so I still am taken back by how much extra enjoyment is added to the game by playing it split screen with my partner.
Looking for a mobile game that not only has massive draw but will also get you out of the house? Something that you can play with others and even meet new people through? Ingress from Niantic is the game you're looking for.
There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.

So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
