Yes, this block sucks.
A vacuumulator (also known as an item collector) is a device that collects nearby dropped items.
When placed, a vacuumulator faces the player. It can face any of the four cardinal directions, and can be rotated using a wrench.
A vacuumulator collects dropped items in an 11x11x11 area. It attempts to collect items every 16 ticks (0.8 seconds), or directly after it is activated by a redstone signal.
Items can exit a vacuumulator through its sides. Every side of the device may be configured to be able to output items.
A vacuumulator can automatically transfer items out of any configured output sides. This is called auto-output, and occurs every 16 ticks (0.8 seconds), right before more items are collected. The device can automatically transfer up to 64 items at a time.
Which sides can output items and whether auto-output is enabled can be configured using the Configuration tab in the device’s GUI.
A vacuumulator can be configured to only collect items that match a given list of items. This can be done by using the placed vacuumulator while sneaking. It has various options that determine how this list is used to match items.
Anvacuumulator may be configured to respond to redstone signals. It can be in one of three modes:
The current mode can be set using the Redstone Control tab in the device’s GUI.
A vacuumulator can have a signalum security lock installed to restrict who can access it.
A vacuumulator’s configuration can be saved on a redprint to be copied to other vacuumulators.
