TL;DRAllow us to optionally define a radius around buffer chests so that they only request and provide in such area.
What ?This would be useful when you have a large logistic network and don't want your buffer chest's demands to trigger a 15 minutes journey for the poor robots.
I'm somewhat new at Factorio logistics so there may be something I'm missing here.
The radius could be seen like a green circular overlay above the buffer chest.
Why ?Allows for finer control at the logistic networks and acts as an optimization for supplying faraway outposts.
- This same suggestion could apply to every logistic chest too.
- This suggestion could be replaced with a bigger one that i just thought about: Segmenting logistic networks...
- Also it would be cool being able to quickly identify buffer chests from the map view. This would be useful when your are planning a supply network for your outposts.
Thanks for reading!
