I had the idea for a block that uses the hopper block (like the elevator using the skulker box block) and would be used for sorting items in a compact and upgraded form (compaired to vanilla redstone version).

The sorter would take any items from the container above it that match the items in the four slots to the right, and put it in the left most slot before it sends it to the container it's pointed at.

Not only would this take less space than the bulky redstone sorter, it would be able to sort out items that don't stack (such as records and filled buckets) and it would be able to sort out a total of four different items, which would allow you to have a simular items that don't stack in one chest, (without an even bulker sorter) or all your types of logs in one chest, If you are an animal.

As for the crafting recipe, I had a few ideas the, but most of them were bad and where a reference the components of a redstone sorter.

Though you can use/base the recipe off the first three I think this one is clean, makes sense and can be remembered. You could have it take a single diamond, but I think there should be a balanced cost for a item that takes less space and is more useful.

Edit:
You could add even more use to the sorter by having it move stacks at a time, which would not only make a better sorter, but could be used in farms to collect and move items 64 times the speed of normal hoppers.

Have you found a redstone sorter that works on the server? I haven't.

Have you found one that doesn't? From what I know the most basic design works through the one that can't overflow would work for obvious reasons. If you really can't look up one on youtube here's a link.

I've tried several designs, I've yet to find one to work on the server. I don't know where you were directing me with the link, but it only takes me to the main forum page on this site. If you want to show me a specific design that works , or maybe send me a structure file that could be loaded through the structure blocks, I'll pm you my email address.

The server`s tick rate speed is double , thats why item sorters are buggy .
To make a working one ( only for farms , not a base ) just make multiple sorters ,like 4 sorters for bone , 4 for arrows ... etc
