So basically what I'm trying to do is re-create Factorio in the upcoming game S&box; it's a bit like Garry's Mod. The part I'm having trouble with is getting the item-belt system working how it should, without making the game unplayable in the process. I've done some research and I can't find much helpful info, be it on FFF or here on the Factorio Forums.
I know I can't have each item be a separate entity, as that causes serious performance issues. I'm thinking each item should probably be a set of data like coordinates and item type, but then the problem is how to make item "tracks" from the belts and figuring out where each item should go. I don't know what the best way of doing any of this is, so if someone can help or even just point me in the right direction that would be great.
P.S. I don't know exactly where to put this as it doesn't seem to fit in any of the other categories, so I'm putting it here. Apologies if this isn't correct.
