    Crop hoppers are special hoppers on some other servers I've seen where any crops that drop in a chunk that the crop hopper is in will automatically all go in that hopper, chunk hoppers work similarly with just pulling items in general in the chunk to it. This lowers the entity count of a chunk and could possibly help reduce lag? With MCD being a factions server focused primarily around farming I feel like this would be a really cool addition.

    I agree I think they could be a expensive item that would be very useful. I plus one this!

    I can't speak for the other staff, but in my opinion I think that this would harm the economy on MCD in the long run, even if they were quite expensive. Drugs that are farmed manually are always a higher price than ones that can be set up as an auto farm due to the amount of effort that goes into harvesting them. This would likely make manual farms way too OP, causing the prices to plummet during drug price balances. Manual farming is and is meant to be more difficult. More effort for a higher payout.

    Crop hoppers are more of an auto farm thing, the only benefit to manual farms I could see is maybe not having to drop off your drugs as much but it would only pick up like 6 stacks or something and that isn't that much. Besides, you still have to grind out manual farms to see profit. Chunk hoppers are nice because you can set up pillars of spawners high up in your base, then afk up there, and have mobs spawn and fall down to the ground and then they would die and the loot would automatically be stored. This can ofc be done with a regular hopper floor but I'm assuming that if they were implemented then the price would be really high.
