Control orientation of inserter based on circuit network

Post by theNCGoalie »

Pretty simple concept, allow inserters to adjust the direction they are inserting based on the circuit network. First use that comes to mind would be a nice buffer system along a belt that would take items from the belt when the associated chest is below a certain threshold, then reverse directions to feed the belt once the chest is above a certain value. I'm sure users much more clever than I could use this to great benefit on train depots.

There was the - in my opinion better - idea to use negative numbers as reverse direction of the inserter.
