Re: Rename "Belt speed" to "Belt throughput" in ingame tooltip

Welcome, and very good points ! What about displaying it as : Belt throughput : 2 x [XX/2] items/s EDIT : For instance for vanilla yellow belts : Belt throughput : 2 x 7.5 items/s ? See also this previous related discussion : Belt speeds https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=75121
