Adds thrower inserters

Renai Transportation

This mod is a fork of Renai Transportation
If you want train launch pads, player launchers, and grenade bounce pads then download that mod instead

Renai Transportation is an amazing mod, but it's also a shitpost
I thought the thrower inserters from that mod would work well as a standalone mod. I also found room for UPS and qol improvements

Improvements from the original mod

  • Thrower inserters will not overflow items onto the ground from machines/chests. They will stop when the target inventory is full
  • When you place a thrower inserter, the dropoff point will snap to the furthest entity that it can throw into
  • There isn't an extra keybind for changing dropoff position. Instead, simply rotate the inserter
  • There is only one thrower inserter. I thought that having a thrower inserter for every variant of normal inserter was excessive
  • You don't need a hatch or an open chest to allow items through

UPS

Compared to Renai Transportation, UPS is better because of three optimizations

  • Inserters update every 7 ticks instead of every 3
  • Inserters are stored in a array instead of a table
  • If an inserter has a stack size then it will only throw one projectile instead of a projectile for every item in the stack

Issues

  • If a thrower has less than 33% power, then it will become l o n g. I could fix this easily, but it will hurt UPS
