Objective

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).

And more

  • 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

A complete medium size base using smart chest (1300 spm)
