Generator Priority!

This mod gives you more control over your steam engines and steam turbines. They default on the output priority Secondary, but now you can control it yourself with keybind.
The different priorites in the game is:
Primary, same as solar, the engines will run equally as solar.
Secondary, Default priority
Tertiary, the generator will only run if you start using power from accumulators/it works as backup power.

How it works

It takes all the generators you have in the game (aka, if you have a mod that add several tiers, this (should) still work.)
and makes 3 copies of it, primary, secondary, terciary, and using the keybind you change between them.


"Shift + O" to Increase the engine Priority
"Shift + L" to decrease priority
ReKeybindable in menu

Mod Support?

It should work with every mod that add additional steam engines. I believe it even works with mods that add other kinds of generators, as long as they use the "generator" type machine (think nuclear reactor etc)
