Renamed and improved version of Wireless Networks.
Yes, FLAN will successfully migrate a saved game using Wireless Networks. Simply disable Wireless Networks, enable FLAN, and load your saved game.

Please post comments/feedback/suggestions on the Factorio forums

Example setup

Adds wireless antennas to send/receive circuit singles any distance (including to other surfaces, such as the inside of a Factorissimo factory). Each antenna can transmit/receive up to 5 signals, although this may increase depending on player feedback.

Only four antennas update each tick, to keep CPU time to a minimum. This means that on larger networks, pulsed signals (i.e. one-tick pulses, from conveyor belts for example) are likely to be missed unless you capture them with combinator logic.

Known Issues

GUI is currently removed pending a full re-write to stop the listed items being shuffled each time the signal updates.
