Are you tired of red and green wires cluttering your inventory and having to bother to provide them even though they're basically free? This mod removes the wires as craftable items and makes them available from shortcuts, similar to how blueprints etc. work now. The wire stack you get is ephemeral and exists only as long as you hold it on your cursor, as soon as you release it, it disappears (unless you manually place it into e.g. a chest, but why would you?). Red and green wires are removed from all recipes where they appear (none in vanilla, but happens in mods, e.g. LTN).

Includes hotkeys to pick up red (Alt + F) and green (Alt + G) wires and to switch wire color (Ctrl + Tab).

Additionally, Includes a shortcut and a hotkey (Alt + C) to pick up copper wire. If available, a stack of copper wire is taken from the inventory, otherwise gives one (1) copper wire to prevent abuse.
