It is not a workaround. :)

Its not a workaround, the ability to block a single side of a belt is evidently already in the game

How can anyone look at that and not think that is bug abuse? Or an obvious makeshift workaround?

From other suggestions around this subject I can add: The design of the underground belt needs to be made a bit more "obvious" to make this feature perfect.
But that is just a graphical glitch. :)

EDIT: And please read the linked thread: there are reasons not to add more belts.

My mspaint skills may leave much to be desired but maybe this will still bring my point across.

suggestion to a minor graphical overhaul of underground belt:

no, the shadows arent supposed to be rendered wrongly like this, the point Im trying to make is only that the other side of the belt should not be blocked from view.

@Mendel that's epic idea - IMO its worth posing that as new idea thread. It would make it much clearer to players that the underground belt ends can be used for more than just transition from above/below ground.
Better forum search for modders: Enclose your search term in quotes, eg. "font_color" or "custom-input" - it prevents the forum search from splitting on hypens and underscores, resulting in much more accurate results.
