|Item Responder Chip|
The Item Responder Chip is an item added by Project Red which allows the Routed Interface pipe and the Routed Crafting pipe to interact with chests and devices with inventory to put items into it (only input) (see Usage). In contrast to the Dynamic Item Responder chip, the Item Responder Chip does have a filter function.
The Item Responder Chip allows the Routed Interface pipe and the Routed Crafting pipe to interact with chests and devices with inventory. But the chip is only necessary to transfer objects from the pipe system in chests or devices. Not the other way around.
Before the chip can be upgraded or installed into a pipe, it must be configured. This configuration is done by right-clicking with the chip in his hand. By holding the crouch-key the item shows in the inventory additional informations about his configuration.
The available configurations are the preference value of the chip and the filter function.
The Item Responder Chip can be upgraded via the Router Utility (see section Slots), but is not necessary for the first time.
This value can be set in the standard version from -2 to 2, and indicates which chip (and the chest behind) preferred receiving the items. The chip with the highest number in the pipe network receives the objects till e.g. the box is full. Then a box with the next lowest number is tried. Have 2 or more chips the same value, a chip is randomly selected and permanently accessed until the box behind the chip is full.
The filter function has 5 different setting options.
- The filter can be whitelisted or blacklisted. In the 9 panels on the left 9 item can be specified for the filter. Whitelisted means, that all items are blocked exepted the specified objects. Blacklisted does the opposite, all items are passed exepted the specified objects.
- The filter can review the metadata of the passing objects against the specified objects.
- The filter can review the NBT of the passing objects against the specified objects.
- The filter can review the Ore Dictionary of the passing objects against the specified objects.
- Damage groups
The Item Responder Chip has a L-Slot that can be upgraded with the Router Utility and the respective upgrades. An S-Slot does not have the chip.
The L-Slot raises the maximum preference value which can be configurated. The maximum value is calculated from Value = 2 + Latency. The latency can be raises with the LX Upgrade by 3, the LY Upgrade by 5 and the LZ Upgrade by 54. To upgrade the chip with a LZ Upgrade, also need you at the same installation process a LX and LY upgrade.
