Item Packer deprecated

by Gangsir
This mod periodically looks for items on the ground (not on belts), and when it finds an item that's near a bunch of other items, it will pack them all together in one item worth them all to reduce lag. Useful when used in conjunction with the warehouse mod or mods that add biter drops.

This is a small mod that will periodically search for items on the ground (not on belts) that are near lots of other similar items, and compress them into few items with the count set to the number of items.

For example, if it finds 50 alien artifacts near each other, it will compress them into 1 alien artifact worth 50 when picked up. This should reduce FPS lag and help to clean up mistakes with the warehouse mod for example. By default, it runs every 5 mins, and compresses all found.
