F to flip blueprint

Post by FrozenOne » Fri Mar 14, 2014 6:47 pm

Simple suggestion: while placing blueprint, in adition to R rotating, F would mirror the blueprint horizontally. Also rotating and then flipping would allow to mirror vertically.

I like this, sometimes if you simply rotate by 180 degrees you have belts going in the opposite direction of what you want and need to change the direction manually.

+1. It's simple enought to implement (IMO) and usefull. I have to blueprint both sides of a belt each separated now, with this it would be only 1 part, and it's mirror :)

IMO it's a logical step.

The problem is only, that not every blueprint is mirror able. There are some case, which prevents it from functioning. Think for example to the 90 degree inserter in the more inserter mod.

But much more can be done. I wrote it here:
