Where is it Made?

Ever wondered where an item is being produced, or which chest it's stored in? Wonder no more. Pressing a hotkey (default ctrl+w) brings up a UI to help you find machines producing a certain recipe, or containers storing an item. Recently updated for 1.1.

Ever wondered where an item is being produced in your mall, or where it's being stored in your logistic network? Wonder no longer. Pressing the hotkey (ctrl+w by default) will bring up a window allowing you to select a recipe and/or item to search for. Clicking the buttons to the right of the filters will place a flashing arrow above machines producing the recipe in question, or chests containing the item (or focus on the machine if in map mode). Clicking the button repeatedly will cycle through all machines/chests containing the selected recipe or item.

Tested and is compatible with mods that add new assemblers and chest types. Note that only chests and logistic chests are considered for the item search, items inside of other inventories such as cars, trains, corpses, etc will not be found.

Tested and works with Factorio 0.17, 1.0, and 1.1. There are a few known issues such as occasional errors when reaching the end of the list of items being searched (clicking the button again should cycle back through all the chests/assemblers) as well as not working with mods such as Factorissimo2 and Wood Harvester (chests inside factories/custom assemblers aren't known about).
