Warehouse / Depot / Storage / Stock (and related)

Post by ssilk »

The problem with this suggestions is as always, that there are many different opinions of
- What is a warehouse? Some see this for example as a sorting device (unsorted items in, sorted items out)
- How to play with it?
- What and how to stock/unload items there?

There is just no clear picture, of how to play with it.

But most suggestions see the warehouse just as a bigger chest and that's in most cases also, how most mods with warehouses work.

Warehouse and Loader?
Lately there is was a big discussion (viewtopic.php?f=38&t=20847 and viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20851) around the so called "loader" (http://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-128), which might come into v0.13. If that device is able to load/unload a warehouse/depot it would work like a hopper (funnel), and probably can load/unload wagons much faster.

So this covers also suggestion about bulk cargo and similar.

Could be also known as "Factory Line" or "Assembling Street"
In the context of this suggestion a depot is "an assembling machine with rail connection".
The sense is, that the character is not longer able to construct and/or carry everything.

I put it into this suggestion for now, because when I searched about storage suggestions I found automatically this one.

In general this enables to put many items in one. Which explains, why I put it into this list, cause it compresses the items to a grade, that makes a big storage useless.
