Interface For Logistics Storage

Post by A_Factorio457 » Thu Jul 09, 2015 5:38 am

Is there a way we can be able to let's say click on a block or an item and view all of the contents of the logistical storage system, including search and pull out? This would simplify the need to have to go look in each chest for an item. I have to request an item to be able to find it in my logistics storage of 50x50 storage chests. Not fun to go through each and check.

Features
1. Search for any item in specified storage
2. Pull out without having to go to the original chest

Ways to implement:
1. Make a multiblock structure kind of like a computer
2. A) Have to specify which chests to look in
B) Use all Storage chests in logistics system
C) Use all logistics chests in logistic system

This could be useful! Like a remote that allows you to get items from logistic system.

If you want an overview, it's possible to do with a mod.

If you're looking to get specific items, that's what requester chests are for.

I think the last player logistic upgrade lets you see the contents of the whole system.

Player logistic slots are a player upgrade that let you request stuff directly from the logistics system. Logistic bots will deliver the goods.

Typically 16 slots, and you can't requests more items than that.

Requesting temporary stuff means you may have to get rid of another item in a slot if it's full, which is very annoying.
