Belt/Underground Belt & Pipe/Underground Pipe planner

Post by Chibiabos » Sat Feb 02, 2019 6:50 pm

I can't be the only one whom has to string underground pipes over long distances sometimes which is frustrating. Try to do it in, say, a car for speed, and no matter how orthogonal you try to drive, eventually you go one pixel too far to a side and blamo, my string of underground pipes is broken and I have to circle back, zoom in, try to line up the car orthogonally again and pick up.

There's a basic mechanism already in place for handling laying logistical connections over longer distances: the rail planner. Whether laying 'ghost' plans for construction builders or even just laying it down, I can lay rail over long distances without having to worry about being pixel/tile-perfect. Could it be adapted for laying out pipes (whether surface or underground) and belts (surface or underground) over long distances?

Yes, please.

Also, look in to VehicleSnap. I consider it a must-have mod.
