I am making a Nether wart farm with Redstone++'s capability to dispense seeds, saplings, nether warts and actually plant them. The farm works and automatically harvests and plants the nether wart. All I need to do now is restock the dispensers when they are empty with 32 nether warts from the chest containing all the harvest. This is where I am stuck as I do not know how to achieve this - all I know is that it has something to do with comparators - a component which I do not fully understand.

I am using Minecraft 1.12.2 in Java Edition and Forge using the Roguelike Adventures and Dungeons modpack.

Below are images of my contraption (note that I am also using the Uppers mod for the upside down hoppers):

  • How many items do you want to take out of the chest? One? – Reflexive Jul 26 '19 at 17:40
  • @Reflexive Half a stack for each slice so 5 and a half stacks out of the chest – M Patel Jul 26 '19 at 18:29
  • Why do you need to do that? Can't you just let a hopper/chest minecart drive quickly over a row of hoppers so that only a bit is put into each chest/hopper below? Also, I don't see any upside-down hoppers. What would they do? – Fabian Röling Jul 27 '19 at 5:01

Hopper minecarts can't easily be controlled, what you can do is change the speed of the minecart, the less time the hopper minecart has under the chest the less items it will take.
