Vanilla Loaders

by Kirazy

Adds the vanilla loaders to the game with customizable recipe difficulty, and with support for cargo wagons via lua scripting. Supports belts added by Bob's Logistics. When installed side-by-side with Loader Redux, will use Loader Redux's snapping logic and train loading. Additionally, with a startup setting, may be used as a dumb mod to simply reskin Loader Redux.

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. Matches colors provided by Bob's Logistics Belt Reskin.

As of 0.18.4, the recipes are overhauled by default. They may be returned to base Factoria recipes in mod startup settings (see below). Specific available recipes and settings combinations are shown on the attached recipe guide (see mod images).

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 just reskin Loader Redux to match the vanilla-aesthetic, and maintain the recipes and research of Loader Redux. See the settings below.


Recipe overhaul: Overhaul loader recipes with a complete rewrite. When Bob's Logistics "Transport belt overhaul" is enabled, recipes will align with Bob's mods. Turn off to use vanilla recipes. See mod page for more details. Default on.

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: Reskin only: Vanilla Loaders will do nothing but reskin Loader Redux; no recipe changes will be made, nor a basic loader added. Default off.
