Module Inserter Simplified

Use Remove modules to remove all modules with left-click, and one module per machine with right-click.


The original Module Inserter is a powerful tool for inserting custom configurations of modules into machines. However, I didn't like having to create and save different configurations for every type of module and having to add each building type individually to each configuration. Module Inserter Extended helps with the second problem, but still, I thought I could come up with totally new, and much easier to use solution...

Module Inserter Simplified is very simple and doesn't have configurations to set up beforehand. For 99% of usecases it will be much more straightforward. Using right-click and drag (insert single module) it is possible to request any combination of modules, but you may prefer to still use Module Inserter (Extended) for this. Module Inserter Simplified is a completely separate mod so there's no problems having both in the same save.

Works in multiplayer and compatible with any mod. Tested for compatibility with Space Exploration, Krastorio2, Bob's Modules, and Nullius.
