Rather than revert to rediculously fast inserters this mod allows stack inserters to grab whole stacks at a time. There are three upgrade levels, the first for grabbing stacks of 50 (so, generally, an entire stack of ore in one rotation). The next is for stacks of 100, and 200. All three researches require space science. The Factorio Mod API doesn't allow changing the base capacity of an inserter, so ALL stack inserters will get this upgrade. This is a limitation of the game. Sorry.
Yet another big miner. The goal was to preserve the mining rate, pollution, and energy usage of 25 beaconed (8-per) miners crammed into a single monolithic building. Arguments can be made that it's slightly faster, searches too large an area for ore, etc, but the reality is, it's good enough. This mod, as with most of my other mods, exists to save UPS via reduced entity count while being as non-cheaty as possible.
For when you wanna mirror the Oil Refinery or chemical plant in vanilla recipes. New recipes that mirror the Oil Refinery and the Chemical Plant.
