Smart Conveyor Belts (also Smart Splitters) / Belt Extension

Post by ssilk » Tue Mar 08, 2016 9:13 am

This is about a belt element, which can be used to control the flow of items in the belt transport system.

This is a bit dangerous suggestion, cause many of these ideas are coming due to the fact of lacking control over the inserters and or not understanding how mighty the belts are (See for example https://wiki.factorio.com/index.php?tit ... /More_uses ) so on. You see that, cause most suggestions are relatively old.

I recommend to wait until 0.13 comes out and then see, what's REALLY missing with the belts, cause with 0.13 the circuits will change in many ways and we will probably also have the loader (which might be already implemented as this missing link).

Until then here is a list of existing threads:
