Post by StarShell »

A compressed blue input would yield a dozen 50% yellow lanes. Could be useful for some wierd sushibelting. For iron, tough, scaling down is definitly a most uncommon way to play this game. Most players go by: too much is never enough.

Is it for quick loading on a train?

For these I have this 1:6 Splitter for one sided loading. You could simply use two of those to get 1:12 if necessary somehow.

It takes 48 Stone Furnaces to eat a full Yellow Belt of ore.
It takes 48 Steel/Electric Furnaces to eat a full Red Belt of ore.
It takes 72 Steel/Electric Furnaces to eat a full Blue belt of ore.

Why would you want to split a belt into 12 others? Is each of the others leading to only 4 or 6 furnaces?

I could see wanting to balance 12 belts so that if only one smelting column needs ore, that ore is taken equally from all 12 belts. But splitting one belt into 12? That’s ... different.
