Mainbus Indicators

Post by ducktype » Fri Jan 11, 2019 6:44 pm

Hi,

I wish for a mod which marks the lanes of the mainbus and shows its contents, even if the belts are not yet placed or are currently empty. My idea is, that I place a special belt or building at the start of the bus, set the item which the belt is for, and the mod draws lines from that point in the belt direction into infinity ;)

Every few cells the item the belt is for could be repeated as overlay.

That way it should be a lot easier to cross the bus with undergrounds, even if the bus is not full built yet.

I created a picture to clarify what I mean

Hi ducktype,

I'm currently creating this mod, you can find it at: https://github.com/Mexx62/mainbus-indicator
It's still a WIP but you can already use it.

Feel free to ask any questions.
