Blueprint reader -> circuit network

Post by ribsngibs »

I'd like a mod that gives you a chest that you can hook up to the circuit network, such that when you put a blueprint into the chest, it does NOT sent a signal for a single blueprint item, but instead reads the items required to build the blueprint and outputs that onto the circuit network.

e.g. if you had a blueprint with 5 turrets and 20 walls and 2 power poles, and throw it into this "blueprint reader chest", the blueprint reader chest would output signals: turret:5 walls:20 power pole: 2 .

This would make it very convenient to send/receive items for construction or train delivery, etc.

Fairly certain I saw a mod go past that does just that. I'd suggest looking at Recursive Blueprints or Ghost Scanner, which are both similar in nature. I think that one of the Picker mods might have this function?
