Adds a few inserters with longer reach.
Adds armoured inserters that are more durable, designed for feeding ammo to turrets.
Can be individually enabled through options.


Want a longer reach for the inserters?
Annoyed by turrets getting no ammo, because the inserters cannot survive a acid splash from spitters?
Wonder why inserters are so fragile, cannot even stand till the repair bot comes?

Now your get all of them, because of this mod!
Firstly, there are long reach version of fast inserters, up to range 4. (Vanilla long-handed inserter only gets range 2.)
Secondly, there are armoured versions of fast inserters, which have more health and much better resistances. Not comparable with that of a proper tank, but still durable enough to survive until your repair bots arrive.
Thirdly, combine of both. You get long reach versions of armoured inserters, also up to range 4. So you can deploy inserters further behind your turrets (to feed ammo) to avoid area effect of acid splash, can still survive longer if some aliens decided to attack your inserters instead! The long reach also means you can deploy another layer of ammo turrets in front of your "ammo supply belt".

This mod provides the following inserters:

  • Fast inserter series: variants of vanilla fast inserter, with range 2 to range 4.
  • Armoured inserter series: much more durable (but slower) variants of the fast inserter series.

This mod is designed for turrets of Schall Ammo Turrets and Schall Alien Tech.

By default (can be disabled in options), all new inserter types are available! You may disable the armoured inserter series if you do not use any ammo turrets, or reduce the reach of new inserters if you do not like such long inserters.

Above figure lists all new inserters. Lower row are the fast inserter series (leftmost is the vanilla fast inserter). Upper row are the armoured inserter series. From left to right, the reach is 1 to 4 accordingly.

  • Schall Starting Inventory is optional but useful, since it allows adjusting starting invenotry, like some long-handed inserters as initial items.

Mods Related

  • Schall Ammo Turrets has introduced various ammo turrets. Armoured inserters will work perfectly with them.
  • Schall Alien Tech has introduced the particle line of ammo turrets. Armoured inserters will also work perfectly with them.
  • Cursed Programable Inserters allows editing the input and output tiles of any inserters, e.g., side inserting, diagonal inserting, or an arbitrary locations within reach! Highly recommended as it makes the inserters much more flexible in placement.
