IdeaAllow for the following actions from the map:
- opening and modifying entities such as chests, combinators, assembly machines, lights connected to circuit network and anything else that is openable
- placing/removing wires (both normal and circuit network) remotely (this might require construction bots)
Why?I have put over 350h in the single map. I have a factory that takes a few minutes to go from one end to another so I do majority of things remotely using multiple roboport networks. I have multiple mining outposts that automatically call for a supply train when short on resources. Sometimes I need to modify what items the outpost wants, how many robots are in the network or to reset emergency nuclear reactor that has turned on because biters destroyed my power cables.
I am designing solutions which allow me to do this by placing extra constant combinators (see "hazard" areas on second screenshot). A bit of a nuisance as I need to build two combinators where I currently am, configure them, then put them into the blueprint and finally place that blueprint in the remote location. Sometimes I have some designs which are not that customisable, so I need to copy part of the design, change the settings, place them into the blueprint, use deconstruction planner in the remote location to remove the entities that I have modified and finally place the blueprint.
Overall, it's a big waste of time and I think it should be easier to do things, which are doable any way.
