Detach Logistic Item Listing From Right Pane

Post by Vile » Sat Nov 14, 2015 10:26 pm

As a player gets further and further into the game, more and more items get placed into the logistics network. The current pane that shows what's available when a player hovers over a requester or provider box needs the ability to change two things (maybe three):
  • List should be able to be sorted by different methods such as the current method of number of items max to min, but also by name or type. A search function would be nice, but not necessary (the third option mentioned above).
  • List should either have a scroll bar to see lower items when it grows too large, or should detach from the right pane into it's own pane that shows all inventory.

There is a thread about it in Bug Reports ‹ Known issues
[0.9.1] Cannot view all logistic system storage items

And it is a frequently suggested idea:



viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1222 Logistic overview on the right side
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2583 Logistic network, Storage Infoscreen
viewtopic.php?f=41&t=2632 Cannot view all logistic system storage items
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4706 Logistics Statistics Screen
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5749 Logistic bot network usage statistics
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9957 Logistic System Informational Window
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13393 Interface For Logistics Storage
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=33198 A Key/GUI for viewing whole storage


There also is a mod that gives a very nice overview of the logistic network (including a search function):
[MOD 0.12.12+] Advanced Logistics System 0.2.10

Yeah, especially with mods adding so many new items (and I pretty much only use my own mods), I find the logistics overview panel completely useless.

Once I do something like, strip mining, and end up with several million of each type of ore... well, I don't really need to know I have several million of each type of ore anymore, yet they're all right at the top, blocking more useful information from being shown.

So, yes, it definitely needs re-working in my opinion.
