Would be sensible given that splitters (by default) divide belts in halve... and many players like to double or quadruple production when they expand. But having the stacking size evenly divide the ore stack size is also quite sensible.Deadlock989 wrote: I still think it should be 4 really but too late now.
On the consumption side, I've mostly gone to one belt feeding all my production columns... and then when it running dry, merge in another belt... repeat and rinse as necessary. Since my blue prints are generally designed to met an output requirement, not an input requirement, I typically have to adjust the feed stacking or not.
On the production side, I just now need to go from 1 directly to 5 columns of production and then double from there.
Btw, one unexpected (to me) bonus of stacking before rail transport is faster loading/unloading. Nice.
Having fun redesigning my blueprints for stacking... as well as a few other extensions (namely miniloaders). And works fine with FactorioExtended... actually allowed me to reduce my usage of faster than express belts significantly while maintaining the same level of production (3.2K/sec science packs / 3RPM).
Again, thanks for the mod!
