So... I may have come up with two more designs. I am really happy with how compact they are

Does this work with multiple items of the same type as inputs? I can’t see why it wouldn’t, but am having trouble visualizing what would happen.

if you feed more than one full belt of any item, it will back up and get stuck.

This is because on the way back, that item is filtered and must pass through the yellow splitter. So you can use full belts instead of half belts, but that's a limitation.

But! if you want 1/3 of one item, 2/3 of another, you can just combine red and yellow splitters on a blue belt.

Best explained with images:

Feeding a full belt instead of only one side works just fine

Image


Feeding more than a full belt does not

Image

But you can use red splitters for interesting ratios on a blue belt:

Edit: having multiple input points works. So you could have a long sushi belt you refill at certain points.

Low splitter sushi
I made a science sushi setup based on a older blueprint I had lying around. I was planning to add credit to the author of the original blueprint but couldn't find them. Can you help me find where I could have taken the original from?

This is what I've been using for my science sushi belt. Can't remember where I saw it.

I found a reddit post for calculating the splitter config for fractions.... YAY!

Using that, i made this.

I incorporated that idea of input rate control into my circuit based mixer. It works for any number of different "bottles" by adjusting the number of "blocks" in the decider combinator. It also consumes both input lanes of each pack equally.
