so my fancy furnace array in desertopia-underroof only ever kind-of worked, so i build a simple but effective array today by tiling ilmango's design 10 times.

there are two parallel streams of 40 furnaces each, making for a total of 80. 40 is an important number, because it happens to be the exact number of furnaces where a single hopper stream can collect items exactly as fast as they are smelted.

the system processes items in batches, one batch being 45 stacks. each side can independently smelts a single batch in 12 minutes and the full system can smelt 128 batches between refuelings.

redid the entire storage system today. about 2.8M item capacity

as it turns out the intense lag caused by the system before (which was bringing the entire server down to like 5 tps) was caused by an issue with hoppers in unsorted storages where a single hopper can take 1000+ times as long as usual to process.

so now there are 16 item sorters in the design

today on blacraft: a janky ass hopper-stream splitter

the motivation is that items usually come in out of the item elevator in stacks of 64. also, overflow-safe sorters have a buffer size of just 23, meaning you need at least 3 to successfully collect everything.

the original solution was the loop-back flow i have in the system, but once most of the item-types were filled, i disabled it, because having items go around and around without being sorted causes a lot of bandwidth usage aka $$$.

instead, since i have 4 hoppers collecting gunpowder, two of which have their corresponding storage sections filled, i could simply redirect 1 of the filled hoppers to one of the two not-yet-filled hopper streams.

however, this presents a problem, since i'd like to split that 1 stream evenly between the two not-yet filled streams. also i don't have much experience with redstone clocks. cue a really janky system which does the job

i don't know what prompted me to spend an eternity enlarging and filling my wood storage from 550k to 1090k, but it is finally done. this is probably the first time i've had one million of something useful

cost: around 500k bones, 27k gunpowder, 22k sand

I made a super smelter:



Two reasons I picked this design over one that can do 20 stacks in a minute:
- I rarely smelt more than 5 stacks of a thing, those 20 stack smelters take longer to smelt <5 stacks than this
- I have tons of wood to use as fuel since it's roughly 1 block of wood per 1 item smelted (yep that fuel inefficient!)

Once 1.13 comes out and the renewable dried kelp fuel source becomes a thing, I might make a very large super smelter that runs on those that will be more fuel efficient and able to do large amounts very quickly but this is more for when I'm like "oh I need 10 stacks of glass" and then I only have to wait like a minute and a half instead of like 5

unfortunately you spent like 3 hours to build it, so you'll need to smelt 400 stacks of glass to break even
