What does it do?

Vacuum Cleaner is a QoL mod that adds a helpful tool for picking up items. You can select an unlimited number of items to whitelist or blacklist, and while the vacuum is enabled, you'll automatically pick up those items from nearby belts, inserters, and/or the ground. No research or crafting necessary!

What is it used for?

Vacuum cleaner is helpful when:

  • Items get on the wrong belt

  • You want to get a few items in your inventory, but nothing else (before bots)

  • You need to pick up a lot of items but don't want to press and hold a button for that long

  • Items spill onto the ground and you want to pick them up without interfering with your belts

How do I use it?

You can use shortcuts located next to your quickbar, or the following hotkeys (by default):

  • Alt + F -- open the vacuum cleaner menu

  • Shift + F -- toggle the vacuum cleaner on/off
