even smarter chest - minimum stock and designated slots

Post by Unic » Sat Aug 29, 2015 9:49 am

Hi,

iam pretty sure ist alway mentioned, but i cant find it.

I would like to see the possibility to designate slots in chests like in trains.
Why i would like this:
To have some chest on my outpost where a train unloads 40 different items in a single chest for playerpickup.


And i would like a option to set minium stacksize for some items in active or passive provider chests.
Why ?
If i have a productionchain where for example a coppercable is build into a chest and the next factory removes it for production of electric curcuit. The overproduction ist removed by the robots, but i want to be sure that at least there is everytime enough materials for the factory with a small buffer.

Because it's not implemented yet? See linked article above, you need to read the whole thread... ;)

Setting filters for every single slot is brutal. I'd like to be able to designate the whole inventory at once.

In addition, it would be nice if logistic requests reserved inventory space automatically.
