item activation range & water/ice conveyors

  1. According to the wiki,


    My question is, what about dropped items that are currently in motion across a packed ice block? Ice is a common way to bridge items from one water flow to the next without having to drop down a level, but I'm noticing that items which are >16 blocks from me seem to freeze and glitch out as soon as they leave the water and start passing over the ice.

    If I stay close to them, then they'll flow and slide all the way down my trench, but if I stay at the end point and trigger a harvest, some of the drops seem to be freezing and then timing out and despawning.

    Is it intended that packed ice cannot be used to join water streams on EMC unless you babysit every item flowing down every stream (which defeats the purpose of the conveyor anyway)?
