Re: Friday Facts #195 - Poles re-design

I have one generall question concerning the pylons. Currently they have three identical connection points for each wire type (electricity, red, green) which gives it symmtrical look.

Similar to the current boiler we get something like this: https://abload.de/img/factorio1tzsqn.png The boiler consumes water and fuel and produces steam. Sever...
