stack size combinator

Post by ichVII »

I would like a mod, that adds a combinator, which outputs the stack size of each item, if it has the item signal as input.
Example: input: 1 iron, 1 gear, 1 green circuit. output: 100 iron, 100 gears, 200 green circuits.
I am currently working on a big project in factorio and need a few more features to finish this project.

I can't find the thread, but I remember this was suggested before.
The suggestion had two parts:
Stackifier - transforms a signal (N, item) into how many items would be able to fit in N stacks of that item, e.g. (2, green circuit) would become (400, green circuit)
Unstackifier - transforms a signal (N, item) into how many stacks you'd need to store N units of that item, e.g. (400, green circuit) would become (2, green circuit)

Yes, I just found that topic, but it was a suggestion for the vanilla game, which seems unlikely to happen. My suggestion is to create a mod, that does this. That seems more likely to happen.

I made a suggestion that container should have a switch to output used/free space in stack sizes too.
