Version: 1.6.2

    - Maps in existing save games won't update until the chunk is re-charted (by radar, by building in the chunk, or with the command).
    - Tiered map colours are now handled by the companion mod, Deadlock's Compact Loaders.
Version: 1.5.3
Date: 04. 04. 2018
    - Removed logging options, because clutter. Modders: if you need these, you'll have to edit the debug value in shared.lua.

    - Stacking/unstacking activities are no longer included in production statistics.
    - This can't be a retroactive change so you will still see beltbox production stats in the past.

  Inter-mod support:
    - Items from other mods with icon sizes of 64 and 128 are now supported. See modding readme. 
    - Beltboxes now base their crafting speed on the speed of their corresponding belts, instead of assuming integer multiples of vanilla speeds.
    - Hand-unstacking recipes now appear at the bottom of the same crafting tab as their corresponding base item (if not hidden by mod settings) instead of defaulting to Intermediate Products.
    - Added a verbose logging option to mod settings so you can see what DSB is doing with your itamz.
    - Added support for Xander Mod tier 4.

    - Addressed a global variable pollution issue.
Version: 1.4.6
Date: 18. 02. 2018
  Inter-mod support:
    - Items from other mods that have layered/masked icons and no custom stack icon specified now get a stack icon generated automatically like non-layered icons do, but warnings will be left in the game log discouraging this.

Version: 1.4.5
Date: 17. 02. 2018

    - Tightened checks and error handling around calls from other mods.

Version: 1.2.0

  Inter-mod support:
    - An easy way for modders to make their items stackable has been provided. See the readme pdf inside the zip.
    - Tier 4 and 5 beltbox technologies are available if Bob's Logistics is active. The research costs are whack because Bob's Logistics costs are whack.

    - Green and red circuits moved from tier 3 to tier 2.
    - Some icons refreshed and much code tidying.
Version: 1.1.0
Date: 31. 01. 2018
    - Beltboxes now stack 5 items instead of 4. For reasons.
    - Belt compression has therefore increased to 5x, but inventory density stays the same.
    - Logs, iron ore, copper ore, stone, and coal can now be stacked at tier 1, solid fuel at tier 2.
    - Stacked items inherit fuel values. Supercoal, hayo.
    - Stacked icons/sprites can be generated automatically from base items if no FPS-saving custom sprite exists (mainly for future mod support).
    - Stacking recipes hidden from the player crafting menu (but not from filters).
    - Migration: technology check.
    - Item and recipe init deferred, to try and catch stack size changes from other mods.
    - Stacked item stack sizes are rounded down if another mod is caught changing vanilla stacks to a non-multiple of 5.
    - ReStack added as an optional dependency because it insists on making very late changes to vanilla items.

    - Beltbox power consumption and pollution rebalanced.
Version: 0.0.2
Date: 28. 01. 2018
    - Beltbox power consumption tweaked upwards, to be more in proportion to the typical throughput/kW of assemblers of the same tier.
    - Icons tweaked for contrast, easier now to tell them apart from unstacked items on belts.
    - Assembler 2s are quite power-inefficient compared to Assembler 3s and Assembler 1s.
