This mod provides an early game Water thrower that does minimal damage but slows down the enemies (use steam for extra damage!) and an advanced turret for extinguishing fires (use "Hardened pipes" to give it extra resistances!).
Sorry, it was late last night. All other ingredients being fed from South, I missed the one requester chest for red circuit at the top right. Didn't help much that I didn't have a robot network around -- just a quick new game with Creative Mod. My requester chest remained empty, so fire extinguisher turrets never were built and I thought you'd mistaken green for red circuits.
