This mod offer a new way of building a base based on the new linked container.
It adds 8 chests associated with 8 colors, and a new selection tool.
When you select a set of chest with the selection tool, all selected chests with the same colors will be linked, ie they will share the same inventory.
To build a factory setup,
- choose a color for each ingredient and a color for each production.
- Use the chests for input and output.
- Link all with the selection tool.
- Add stuff to feed one of the ingredient chest
- Add stuff to get the items from one production chest
The linked chests are very efficient (UPS).
- a new combinator : the chest content reader which can read the content of the smart chest which is behind it
- the visualization of the chests linked to the selected one
- a filter panel to choose which chest will be linked by the selection tool
- the configuration of the number of slot per type of chest
- use shift with the linking tool to add to the existings linked chests
- mining a non-empty chest returns a single item which can put back on the map with its full content
