Never seen such a setup before. But then again, I do my own things pretty much always.rolfl wrote:Many early boiler setups use a mechanism of taking coal off a belt, placing it in the boiler, and then on the other side have another inserter removing the coal and placing it in a parallel boiler - a-la:

With Steam being separated out the side it is going to significantly increase the footprint of early boiler systems.... requiring addiitonal pipe, belt, and inserter space.
I expect this is going to be a problem
But what I do that this will screw up *royally* is to have parallel rows of boilers/engines, with one water pipe source, and with the spacing changed, I will have to tear everything down and rebuild. Great.
