How much should a network controlled entity can on it's own?

Hi everyone,

I am setting up the GUI for my mod, so that you could control the belt-speed with a circuit-network. At the moment it looks like this:

The belts slow every 60 ticks down or speeds up every 60 ticks, the condition is true. Is that too much functionality on it's own. Should I force the player to use comparators if he/she wants to change the speed? like with stack-size for the inserters

I like the more player created logic (every person has an interesting time coming up with a solution), but I know some people like the simplicity and ease of “just do what I want”.

I think it is really up to you; what kind of mod do you want it to be?

Have you considered adding an option to switch between the GUI vs combinator logic?

I didn't considered this yet. So thank you for the hint.
I think I will add an Option for this.
