This mod will provide 48-slot chests that will 'connect' with their direct neighbours and balance ("equalize") the contents of these chests (think Communicating vessels). My personal use case for this will be with train unloaders, where the chests furthest from the middle of the wagon don't receive nearly as much materials as the center chest.

This mod only deals with itemcounts, so no effort is made to balance individual items. There's also a lower threshold of (by default) 10 items below which no items will be transfer (this to avoid ping-ponging stuff back and forth). This threshold can be changed by editing a line at the top of control.lua - use at own risk, no extensive testing has been done for added cpu load.
