Minimalist 1x1 loaders and belt theming options, designed to match Deadlock's Stacking Beltboxes.
Clean graphics, light code.

  • Does not replace vanilla loaders, so it can be used alongside other loader mods in existing saves.
  • Provides a start-up setting to theme transport belts (off by default), reducing VRAM use but increasing rendering.
  • Provides a start-up setting to change underground belts to the same graphical style (off by default).
  • Provides a start-up setting to show belt tier colours on the map/minimap.
  • Provides a start-up setting to turn the loaders off completely and only have the belt styling.
  • Higher tier loaders available if Xander Mod, Bob's Logistics or Factorio Extended (Transport) are installed.
  • Basic snapping code (can be turned off in per-player settings).
  • Deadlock's Compact Loaders do not work with train wagons. If you need that, I recommend Miniloaders instead.

Inter-mod support

If you want to add support for another mod which provides new belts or changes vanilla ones, DCL provides an easy-to-use function that automatically generates a matching loader for you. You don't need to provide new graphics or icons for the loader. See the documentation pdf in the zipfile for details.
