Yes it could. I normally want my ammo loops to be saturated, but this would definitely permit having a sparse ammo belt.andywankenobi wrote:Could this sort of system be used for sparse ammo belt loops? I've been messing with various ways to keep a set amount of ammo on the belt but I haven't yet found a solution that works.
Note that there are also various ways to throttle a belt. Try wiring two belts in a row together, set the first belt to "enabled: ammo = 0" and the second to "read contents: hold"
This setup only lets one item through at a time (or two if there are items on both lanes). You can even wire up additional reader belts to further increase the space between items. Good if you want to make sure that only one item enters at once
