This is a filter I wrote for MCEdit, but I also used a bunch of SethBling's code. He's an awesome redstoner, and filter maker, check him out: http://youtube.com/SethBling If you reuse this code, please give credit to SethBling, and myself.

What is this?



This is a filter for MCEdit that allows you to change item numbers, in mass amounts. You can also make infinite dispeners/droppers with it. Although this is already possible, using NBTEditor for MCEdit, this allows you to do it quickly, and easily. Simply select the area, that you want it to take effect on, and tell it the item count that you want it to set it too, and voila! Simple and easy, and it works for items that are already existing. And if you want an infinite dispenser/dropper, just set the item count to "-1".

Installation



To install this filter for MCEdit, you must first have MCEdit, which you can get here. Just click on the one that represents your operating system. Then download, and unzip MCEdit. You can run MCEdit from the main exe. Next, to install this filter. Download it, and go into the main folder that has your version number on it, and put it in the folder called "filters". Then run MCEdit, and load a world, and you'll find it under the filters area.

Other



I might add some more to this filter, for example, replacing a specific item, or something like that, although I had some trouble when I tried to do it, so right now, you can only change items in mass.

If you have any ideas for this filter, or other filters, please let me know, as I might be able to do it.

Also, if you like this filter, please give it a diamond, or maybe even a favorite.
And if you'd like to see more, please subscribe.

Thank you. Have been looking for exactly this kind of thing. :)
This comes in really handy when you're building an adventure map. A simple redstone clock, a dispenser filled with predefined command blocks and your filter and that's all you need to create random events.

Not a bad one. Now if you want to trick someone, you can, like if you put -1 diamond in Trap(Dispenser), when someone picks it up, missing diamond.

Your welcome.

As for the teaching I probably wouldn't be much of a help as it's been a while and I didn't actually know too much. But if you are interested in it, I suggest you look up videos on youtube by texelf. He's very good at it.

It should work fine, as MCEdit versions are seperate from MC, and no new storage items have been added.

Well, it depends on exactly what your making. I'd say it's easier than making an MC mod. But it is kind of hard. Although you can easily look at the code from other filters, so that helps.

No. This allows you to set the count of items, that are already existing, not fill it with new ones.

Hmmm... I never realized that. Was it able to do it for multiple chests and stuff, and droppers? If so, could you send me a link?

No problem. Just be careful, I was looking around, and the -1 might not actually be infinite. Just so you know.

What do you mean? Why is -1 not infinite and is there any better approach to create ininite (or nearly infinite) dispensers?

Well, the problem is, is that Minecraft (as far as I know), has a limit on it's variable size, even if it's negative.
Right now, the best way I know of to create an infinite dispenser, is to create one, and clone it to the one that is being used. If you have 64 command blocks in each slot of it, you only have to clone it now and then.

Thanks for enlightening me. As far as I know the variable size limit is -2147483648. Guess, it will take a while until that value is reached.
