[Request] Overhead Train Loader / Unloader

Post by Therax » Sat Jan 20, 2018 5:19 am

I'm the author of Miniloader, and based on what I've learned from making that mod I'm in the polishing stages of a new mod that gives rapid train loading and unloading of bulk goods.
See the main forum thread for details.

Size: 4x4 tiles
I intend to layer this over Factorio base rail graphics in game. Separate versions for horizontal and vertical rails are optional, I leave it to your artistic judgement. It would be nice to get a technology icon, and icon-sized versions for in-game items as well.

In general: I love it.

Two requests/ideas:
1) Could you add support for omnite to main version? (I know it's just adding stuff to bulk.lua locally as you pointed out).
2) Could you add some kind of filter so it's easier to configure what to load/unload? Perhaps multifilter as tech?

Would it be possible to have the filter obey signals like filter inserters do? That way we could control it from the logistic train network stop. Obviously I’m using it for unloading various crap for my science outpost, not just ores :

Awesome mod!

Hello, this is the art request thread. If you could bring suggestions, bug reports, and testimonials on the mod itself to the mod thread, I'd appreciate it!
