Underground Indicators

This mods adds neat and intuitive indicators to help you know how far your underground belts and pipes reach. This is what it looks like in action!

Features

  • Highlights all belts or pipes of a currently held type in a range around the player
  • Different colors for free tiles, occupied tiles, or quickly replaceable tiles
  • Change all of the above in the mod settings!

Credits

Thanks to IronCartographer for the mod design! I didn't really design any part of this, I only implemented it.
I'd also like to tip my hat to the amazing people in the Factorio Discord in the #mod-making channel for when I need to know just about anything modding related.
