Can anyone tell me how does scicraft slime storage and capacity counting computer works. I know how to build redstone computer but the hell does it works it's quite confusing how they made it count in millions. How many bits computer does it requires

To deal with a number that's over 1,000,000 you'd need to be able to store and display a 20 bit number. That's just the lowest, and is only about a million.

Thank you, Minecraft Forum, for providing a place for us all to gather together and discuss this great game with each other. The community built up around this place was wonderful, and I will miss logging in every day to see the latest posts on my favorite topics. If it wasn't for this site, I wouldn't be with the wonderful group I am with today nor would I have learned so much about the workings of the game and redstone. We will all miss you, and I don't think there will ever be a site quite like this one.
They don't count every single item - they count chests fill level (since chests fill in order, the error is only of order of 1 chest.) First they sum the values of 'fullness' of the chests, round (trim lowest bits) and encode it as hex numbers (analog signal value 0-15) over a couple lines, then decode that into decimal count and separately into percentages. They don't maintain lines for every single bit of the count of the items - if the count is a 20-bit number, then they encode upper 12 bit on 3 4-bit analog values and discard the bottom 8 bits at various stages of the encoding process.
