Train wagon with equipment grid that can share item inventory with all other wagons in the train for construction robots. No more running out of an item in the wagon with the roboport or robots getting stuck trying to unload all those trees you just cut down into a full wagon.

Usage

  1. Research the Construction trains technology after you have both Robotics and Railways.

  2. Build a train with at least one construction wagon and 1 or more cargo wagons.

  3. Filter the slots on the construction wagon (middle mouse click by default) for the items you wish for it to hold. Make sure there is some construction bots, and some free slots for robots to dump any deconstruction items.

  4. Place a personal roboport and some power in the wagons equipment grid.

  5. Fill the other wagons by which ever means you prefer (filtered slots or not), the construction wagon will pull items from these other items to fill it's filtered slots.

  6. Anything placed in the construction wagon that is not filtered, such as wood and stone from construction bots will be moved to free space in the other wagons.

Mod Compatibility

Should work with other mods changing robots, equipment, etc. But only the specific "Construction wagon" will move inventory items. If other wagons can have roboports, they are not modified.

Configuration

Taking and trashing items can be configured by default or per wagon as desired.
