Adds loaders to Factorio that match the vanilla-aesthetic. Ported and adapted from Vanilla Loaders 0.15 by Thaui. Supports Bob's Logistics, Bob's Plates, Bob's Electronics, and Loader Redux integration.

0.17 style graphics are a work in progress, but nearly complete.

For backwards compatibility, the recipes are by default the ones in the original mod. However, by using settings in Bob's Logistics and this mod, one may increase the complexity of the loader recipes. See the attached spreadsheet for details.

Additionally, if you also add Loader Redux, this mod will use the loader-logic and snapping provided by Loader Redux instead of its own. This mod will respect snapping and train settings, found under Mod Settings -> Loader Redux. You can also choose to use this mod to reskin Loader Redux to match the vanilla-aesthetic, and maintain the recipes and research of Loader Redux. See the settings below.

When Loader Redux is present, by default loaders are obtained using separate research technologies provided by that mod. However, a setting exists that allows you to choose to obtain loaders from the Logistics technologies in Startup Mod settings. A note, any other mod that depends on Loader Redux's technologies may cause the game to fail to start should you disable that setting. To protect against this, it is on by default.


Recipe overhaul: Overhaul loaders with a complete recipe rewrite. When Bob's Logistics "Transport belt overhaul" is enabled, recipes will align with Bob's mods. Default off.

Requires Bob's Logistics:
Recipes include inserters: Include inserters in loader recipes. Requires "Recipe overhaul" and Bob's Logistics "Transport belt overhaul" to be enabled. Default on.

Requires Loader Redux:
Loader Redux basic loader: Add a basic loader with Loader Redux style recipes, and adjust the regular loader to account for it. Requires "Loader Redux recipes" and Bob's Logistics "Transport belt overhaul" to be enabled. Default on.

To use Vanilla Loaders HD to reskin Loader Redux, and nothing else, enable the following:
Loader Redux recipes: Use Loader Redux item recipes for loaders. Default off.
