Should hoppers be reverted back to transporting one item per tick instead of four?

    Hi,

    So as most of you know, hoppers transport 4 items per tick as of now, which makes them pretty fast. However, I don't see a point where this is that necessary. Even if you were to create a gigantic farm which produces lots of resources, and even if hoppers can fully keep up, your island would probably still lag a lot. I think hoppers should go back to transporting just 1 item per tick, since having more per tick makes hoppers an non-viable redstone block for certain redstone machines. What do you guys think?

    First off hoppers are not 4 items per tick they are 4 items every 16 ticks a tick I believe is 1/5th of a second therefor it would take about 3 seconds to move an 4 items this is fair

    If they are 4 ticks in a second then that would be 1 item per second which is perfect


    The reason this was implemented is to reduce lag they are planning on bringing back pigmen and with these massive grinders we need faster hopper speeds to keep up with the amount of pig drops these massive farms are producing

    Here’s the official speeds /update lee has made
    • Hopper speeds have been greatly increased from 2 items every 32 ticks to 4 items every 16 ticks
      • This is four times the previous flow rate, and moves items at twice the normal speed compared to Vanilla Minecraft
      • This should significantly reduce thenumber of hoppers required to move the same number of items
    they do not need to be changed

    What this does is make it harder for hoppers to get clogged by being much more efficient. It also reduces the need for an ungodly amount of hoppers in a grinder, for instance.

    It breaks compact casinos, it makes them a lot more expensive. But I don’t care. If it meant that pigmen are back I honestly don’t mind!

    i agree with Bard it doesn't make it too fast or cause too much lag, please check your sources before you write
