New Feature: Allow reordering logistics requester slots

Post by factoriouzr » Thu Jan 07, 2016 11:57 pm

It would be nice to drag and drop logistics slots to re-order their position. This is useful to keep a consistent order in items requested for organization and readability (especially with mods adding more slots). Without this feature to reorder would require removing and re-setting all logistics slots after the insertion point.

This is not a crucial feature, but a nice to have and goes along with general gui polish and improvement, more interactivity, and modern features like drag and drop.

Hmm. I suggest an autosort for the slots instead - like the inventory. :)
I think this is much simpler implemented and doesn't bother the player to learn how to order slots.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

the only issue with an auto sort is that it's arbitrary and can't be customized. I want my belt and my underground and my inserter and my splitter and power pole beside each other on the toolbar, thought this is not as big of an issue with the requester slots so either would work but a drag and drop would be better. It's also standard in GUI design.
