I agree with you both. Utility science pack is as good as yellow science pack.Mike5000 wrote: ↑Fri Dec 28, 2018 8:11 pmThe genius of Wube is that Logistics Science has nothing to do with logistics and Chemical Science has nothing to do with chemistry.

Not only are you renaming the science packs, breaking every mod that adds technology, but you're also using the name "Logistic science pack" which will cause a lot of confusion with the pink Logistic science pack added in Bob's mods for end-game (Production level and up) logistic research.
Hi Tech is renamed Utility Science so that newbies will think it comes first. And then they get to wait hours for Yellow Science for logistics chests and personal roboports because Wube hates the idea of anyone starting yet another boring mine with a few clicks when they can do it with a thousand.
This is, after all, a game about using magical beacons and thundering herds of trains to defeat engineering and automation and logic and modders.
I would suggest just renaming them to their colors. It would force people to lock up for what they are used and almost all techs use the lower tier science bottles, too.
"Why do I need the logistic science pack for military?"
"Why do I need the chemics science pack for blue belts?"
"Why does the power armor use logistic science?"
It makes no sense and dare to change techs to only require one science pack. Just rename them to their colors and no order would be forced except that you can't build the stuff they are made out off. Then you look it up and realize that you first need something else.
