[MOD 0.12.26] Packaged (Crated) Items-Transport more,faster

Post by TheBauwssss » Thu Jul 02, 2015 7:29 pm

Ok guys, here is my first mod :D

The fastest transport belts were not fast enough, so I decided to add a packaged version of a few items. I don't really care if this exists already, I just thought I would share it with you guys. :)

The items must be packaged and unpacked using any assembly machine. All packages must be researched first.

All packaged items stack to 100.

Download link for version 0.0.1 (Factorio 0.11.22 - 0.12.26)

Available packages:
Packaged Iron Plates (100)
Packaged Copper Plates (100)
Packaged Steel Plates (100)

Packaged Stone Brick (100)
Packaged Copper Cable (200)
Packaged Iron Gears (100)

I'm not going to comment onthe utility of the mod, but I think it needs a snappier name. Something like 'Crate Expectations'.

I dunno, I'm bored of all these purely functional mod names lately!

Will make the same comment here I did on another mod . . . any thoughts on mixed packages? For instance, stacks containing what is needed to create a science pack, in just the right ratios?

You mean like crafting a crate from 1 inserter and 1 transport belt (For green bottle)? Or the raw materials? (1 crate from 5.5 iron plate and 1.5 copper plate) Or do you mean it just crafts a crate from whatever you put into the assembler?

Do I see this right that the packaging doesn't need any extra materials (like a crate or something) and just the materials to package? (which would be awesome, because the added complexity with crates etc. make those mods nearly unusable for me, unless you use a lot of logisitc robots)

And I think he meant mixed packages like in "X Iron Plates, Y Copper Plates and Z Electronic Circuits" for a single package.

Yes, this mod requires nothing extra to package items. Just the items itself.

Is you want a package with all the components for a particular item, why not just put them in the assembler and make that item?

I was just clarifying what Lurkily asked ^^

The use case would be to produce it at some point and put everything into a package and then transport just that package to another point, where an assembly could then create an item or something like that.

I personally don't think it's necessary, but oh well ^ ^


What would be nice though would be the ability to create smaller packages.
So instead of a package with 100 iron plates, I would want to have one with just 10 or maybe 25 or something like that.
The jump from 1 item on the belt to 100 items on the belt is a little big (and you would most likely packaging to increase thoroughput in your factory, but the jump from 1 to 100 is a little big).
