More Logistics Requester slots

Post by Peter34 »

Currently, the game stops at 4 rows of slots, 5 items per row, for a total of 20 requested items.

I'd really like to see a mod that increases that to 6 or 7 rows, for a total of 30 or 35 requested items, each tier requiring additional research.

Do you mean for Requester Chests or Player Logistic slots?

Sorry for not being clear, I mean Player Logistics slots. I think 2x5 Trash Slots are fine, but I'm a bit annoyed about the cap of 4x5 Logistics Requester slots. I think it's be nice to be able to research 2 additional slots (note that I play with a mod that increases my inventory size from 60+20 to 150+20, so I have rather a lot of room for stuff).

The tier 4 Character Logistics Slot costs 30s times 150 times 1xRed/Green/Blue/Purple, so my suggestion is:

Tier 5: 60s, 250 times 1xRed/G/B/P.

Tier 6: 90s, 600 times 1xR/G/B/P.

Factorio already offers a lot of "optional" technologies, ones that players won't necessarily choose to invent, either at all or else in a particular game, depending on their play style and situational need. This would be another example of that, one very expensive tech and one super-expensive one, that some players would desire but others would skip.

There's at least two mods that already offer that. One is Bob's (probably Logistics), the other is something like Expanded Robot Tech.
I don't have OCD, I have CDO. It's the same, but with the letters in the correct order.

More Logistics Slots works in Factorio 0.12 without any changes. It goes up to 10 (rows of request slots).

Thanks, but what happens now that alpha 12.7 has added a 5th researchable slot to the vanilla game?
