Sorting/storage System

Sorting/storage System
0

Hey guys! I’ve seen in the NEI that there are some sorting items like the ore dictionary and some mass storage items like the …well, mass storages. Are there some mass storage items that can store multiple item types (like “bigger chests”) or is there some way to link multiple chest? I tried with hoppers, but they take only one side of the chest (if I use normal wooden chest), and items are not sorted.
If GT6 can’t probely sort things, do you use a mod to do that?

I looked for bear’s videos but I found nothing :c

There are 1x1 chests that have as much capacity as 2x1 chests, maybe look into those?

Are those just 4 storages in one block? I’m not just looking for bigger space, I’m also looking for sorting solutions and a way to connect those storages. (and bigger storages like drawers or metal chests will be used in it :D).
I however see some automation message using the monkey wrench in it. What does it mean? Does it “sort” things in some way?
EDIT:
Found Extenders. Not sure if they are what I’m looking for, but I’m reading the changelog now.

I think I need to do some examples.
Let’s say I have bit of copper in two chests: I’d like to “sort it” all in one chest. Right now I could vertically link drawers with hoppers to have a “big chest”, but the problem is optimization, maybe some copper go to the bottom drawer and does not get sorted with the copper in the upper drawers.

AE2 is the general goto mod for all that.

Extenders are not what you’re looking for then. You want a Wall of Item Barrels and Mass Storages for the Items in question, but all of that as a GUI, meaning you require AE to truly do that. Not even my Logistics System can really help with it, unless you want to turn on the Diversity Filter on an Advanced Crafting Table and export everything you have into it (so it always has one stack of every Item you send inside)
