In my current space exploration playthrough with some friends we ran into some lack-of-material issues, so when we "really needed" something from a crafter we prioritized those chests by letting them request from buffers (which has a higher priority than requester chests that don't request from buffers, and on par with players)

Its a neat feature, but the problem is we're forgetting about which machines have material priority, especially if other players turned the checkbox on.

This mod simply fires an alert for each logistic requester chest that is requesting from buffers.

You'll probably go mad from the alerts, but once you fixed the lack of resources you don't need higher priority anyways right?

Obviously this mod isn't meant for everyone, but if you want to find all priority requester chests and don't mind alerts: welcome aboard!

  • thanks to @calcwizard#7488 on the factorio discord for helping me debug some things :)

  • ps, requester chests that have their filter set by the circuit network are exempt, since those are used to speedload our rockets from buffers πŸ‘€
