This is a simple mod to add inline storage to transport belts. Slipstream chests will pick up any items fed towards them by transport belts, and output onto transport belts that do not face them. Chests require power to run. There are no custom graphics for these chests - they use the steel and logistic chest graphics at this time.
Finally! The first version for 0.12 is here. I've updated everything for the new transport belt system, and added a scheduling system that should hopefully make it run a little more efficiently. I still don't recommend using them in large nubers, like a mass storage system - try an active provider SSC with a set of vanilla storage chests.
Please also note that there is no support for directly upgrading from 0.11 saves. In the unlikely event anyone was still using Factorio 0.11 and SSC 1.1.1, you will have to remove all slipstream chests, deactivate the 1.1.1 version of the mod, load and save your savefile again, and then move to Factorio 0.12 and install SSC 2.0.0.
There's more to come still, I need to add the new graphics suggested by Foxy_Boxes, add some new tiers of chests and hopefully improve performance a bit more as well. A slightly more elegant system for dealing with removed/quick-replaced transport belts would be nice as well.
