Name: Inventory Sensor
Description: Adds a combinator that reads inventories, fuel and equipment grid of locomotives, wagons, cars, furnaces, assemblers, roboports, rocket silos and reactors.

If you want to get the inventory of your trains per wagon, build smart furnaces/assemblers control reactor by temperature this mod is for you.
This sensor will read all inventories, fluid boxes (always rounds up to next integer for proper empty detection), crafting progress, temperature and equipment grids.
supported entity types:
- Car / Tank - leave me a note if you want a modded tank added to the namelist to get the tank detected signal
- Cargo Wagon
- Fluid Wagon
- Assembler - includes Chemical Plant, Refinery, Centrifuge
- Logistic Requester Chest
- Artillery turret
- storage tank
- generator (steam-engine)
Inventory of detected entity
Car detected (anything not in tank namelist)
Wagon detected (Cargo Wagon and Fluid wagon)
- Inventory update interval
How often inventories are updated.
- Entity scan interval
How often for new/changed entities is scanned. e.g. trains moving out of the station
This can greatly improve performance if a lot of sensors are looking for vehicles.
- Read vehicle grids
Option to disable reading vehicle grids. Minor performance increase.
- Scan Range & Scan Offset
Dimensions of the scan rectangle in front of a sensor.
Changing these it will possible break entity detection!
Kikkers - Smarter-Circuitry, initial idea to make this mod
Schorty - Pollution Detector, which i used as guideline for combinator manipulation
