Lane Balancer (continued)


Evenly balances input & output lanes on a belt. Like a splitter, but for the lanes on a single belt. New added features: - Filtered balancing. - Can be managed through logic & logistic networks for enabling/disabling & filtering. ** Looks for skilled graphix designer to build new HR sprite for mod. **
