After having read many, many of the forums and watching endless videos on the subject I'm curious about something. I know that, with few exceptions, if you ask someone "what's the best item sorting/storage system out there?" that they will undoubtedly answer "Why AE2 of course!" while looking at you like you have a third nostril. I am curious though if there are other better ways to organize the items. What I mean is this. AE2, pipes, etc. are just sorting tools. I know you may think but I use AE2 for storage, I put items into my network and then I take them out. But eventually you have to upgrade the storage. In fact most if not all of the videos I've seen on the matter have cobblestone immediately removed from the AE storage and transferred to deep storage. Eventually this happens with dirt and subsequently each other item follows. I actually miss the 1.6.4 BC pipes with their mk II sorting this and request that. Not only did they add a certain aesthetic, like a model train running around the wall at ceiling level of the nearby country buffet; but they also added certain functionality in sorting. The sorting in the ae system is all virtual, at least until you start using storage buses to move things around. Unless you go through the process of drive formatting etc. The point I'm getting at is I can't seem to find a really great organizational system that isn't just "Throw all your items in the giant pile o' AE". What do you use? How do you bring organization to your base without setting up alter's to the great minecraft god Soaryn; bowing at his chests every time you pass them.
