Drop Transfer disabled in resource?

Drop transfer (lwc) works in all worlds except resource. It also worked in the old resource world.
Now if you try to use it in resource, you get a message that "This command cannot be used in this world".
Is this intentional, or a byproduct of the name change to Resource1?

It could be due to the name change. I'll see if I can fix that real quick before my meeting.

Edit: Check to see if that works

Yes, I've come up with a few ways to use it... sending things to an item sorter is a great use.
Also, if you are mining you can keep what you want, send the trash to an incinerator, and mine a lot longer before you inventory is completely full (ask me when I'm on if you want to see my setup).
I also use it to collect lava... fill my inventory with empty buckets and grab all the lava I can... when my inventory is full and I keep collecting, instead of dropping in the lava they go to a tower of chests which will fill with lava buckets.

Oh wait, I also used it once on a chest with comparators coming off it to remotely trigger some fireworks.
Drop enough things, they go in the chest, the redstone fires off and in this case I had several comparators leading to different fireworks launchers with different lengths of redstone lines, so I just kept dropping things to trigger the various fireworks launchers one after another.

Hmm... I'm sure there are other useful (or neat or fun or whatever) uses for it.
If you think of one slap it on here.

First time I've tried it in a while and I got this error:

'You cannot drop transfer items across different worlds!'

I was attempting this from Resource2 to build7. Had no issues in the past with an older resource map :confused:

Yeah, it won't work between different worlds... not only that, when you get that message, it basically breaks drop transfer. It won't work and you can't turn it off or select a new one or... well anything.
You have to relog to reset it.
It would be super helpful to be able to do what you were trying to do (I'm assuming), gather in resource and send it back to a sorter in build, but it just doesn't work that way.

Yup, was my intention.

Just have to do it the old way then, warp home and drop into input chest for item sorter.
Drop transfer is useful for moving locations inside the same map (consolidating chests and item) but the resource thing would have been a hugely useful item.
