Ability to set grid offset for blueprint book

TL;DR It would be nice to be able to offset a collection of snap-to-grid blueprints together. What ? By "grid offset" here I mean the X/Y values you configure next to the "Absolute" section for snap-to-grid blueprints using absolute grid positioning. Currently this is configured...

Re: Very basic train circuit condition question

Very basic train circuit condition question

I'm just starting to dip my toes in circuit network stuff and I have a very basic question about train circuit wait conditions.
