Compression Chests mod originally by Rseding91 updated for 00.16 and slightly tweaked.

Original forum post: [https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=4845&p=36922]

Tested on single player without other mods. It may not work in multi player or with other mods. Please post in discussion tab if you have tried it with multiplayer and other mods.

I am hoping to add a signal for internal quantity so if anyone can suggest a tutorial on adding additional signals, please post a link in the discussion tab.

Tweaks:
Added circuit connection for available quantity
Removed all alien science requirements.
Changed available stack to 1/2 instead of 2/3 for loading with higher tier loaders.
Changed power pole to store 6MJ instead of 4MJ to last the night with higher tier loaders.

Change log:
2.17.0:
- Updated for Factorio alpha 17
2.16.3:
- Added circuit connection. Currently only outputs available quantity, so values range from 0-1/2stack.
2.16.2:
- Updated EN locale to fix "Unknown key" name display issues.
2.16.1:
- Restructured version numbering to represent Factorio version and update version.
2.0.16:
- Initial release
