External Storage

The External Storage is a block that provides the system with storage of the inventory or fluid tank in front of the device.


A (negative or positive) priority can be chosen (where a higher priority gets higher precedence to place items in).

Whitelist and blacklist

There is also a whitelist and blacklist option to only allow or forbid some items or fluids from entering the connected inventory.

The whitelist or blacklist can be configured to be NBT, damage and oredict sensitive.
