Logistic robots carry fluid

Post by Lord_lammington »

With the most recent addition of the flame thrower turrets refueling the turrets can be a bit of a hassle , i suggest logistic robots capable instead of carrying items , can carry fluids such as water , lubricant etc. the robots would deliver to barrels placed in the world much like normal chests (requester , provider active etc). these barrels would basically transfer liquid to any adjacent pipes.
this would add easy access to building belt-less superfactories as liquids can be now transported. it would add different ways of thinking and planning different factories instead of just spaghetti popes everywhere!.
Tldr; Robots that can transport liquid but not items

See viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2539 liquid robots

Quite old, but the arguments are still valid.

Also added to viewtopic.php?f=80&t=15330 Transport of Fluids/Liquids via Barrels or Tank Wagons
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

No. :) You can't. I can, but I don't see a reason, because it is a valid suggestion and your highly welcome opinion. ;)
