I don't think it's gonna get much easier...
Instructions:I got the idea from the following video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1R3pGDS-wABut then I developed the idea further and simplified it a lot.Advantages:
- This lift is very quiet because it is activated once for a stack of items only and not 64 times like itemlifts with droppers.
- The lift does not cause lag.
- It's easy and quick to build (you don't even have to go to the nether to find quartz for comparators).
- It can transport large quantities at once.
