Minecraft 1.14.2 Pre-Release 4
Mid-range laptop running Windows 10 and Java version 8 update 211.
When items are moving through hoppers, the comparator does not give a signal - breaking systems like hopper minecart unloaders, for example. I could only reproduce this when items were moving quickly through a hopper to another storage block - when a hopper has stationery items in it, the comparator works as expected.
What I expected to happen was...
The comparator would create a redstone signal as an item moved through the hopper.
What actually happened was...
The comparator did not create a signal and stayed off.
Steps to reproduce....
- Place a chest and a hopper on top of it, before placing a chest on top of that hopper.
- Set up a comparator leading out of that hopper into a redstone lamp, for example.
- Place items in the top chest and watch as they travel down to the bottom one without illuminating the comparator.
