  1. Are you tired of building hundreds of storage compactors? Wish there was a better way? Well there is now. I present... the Amazon warehouse infinite storage module! Here's a video of it in action. Skip to the end of the post if you want to see how it's made. This setup can automatically sort and store an infinite amount of material, and requires only a small amount of power to run. It runs off the basis of an infinite food storage system from (insert source here). How it works: Items are shipped in or swept into the containers in the middle. The shipping loaders are preset with different material categories, and only the sweeper directly below each can access it, due to the airflow tiles. The sweeper arms are run by the automation on the right, which enables it for 3 seconds, disabled for 0.1s. This allows the arm to grab an item from the shipping or compactors, and drops it immediately, The item drops out of reach of the arms, lying in a pile. It works amazingly well for all shipped items, as it can pile up an infinite amount of materials which can then be immersed in chlorine, cold water, refrigerated as food, and easily accessed by dupes. Some pros: Scalable. This build can be built repeatedly, one for each individual material if you want. The only limiting factor is the range of the sweeper arms. The whole build takes very little power to run. It's very compact. Once you have 50+ storage compactors, it adds dupe travel time just to retrieve materials from the far end of a storage room. This brings all the storage to one spot. A few cons: @Saturnus noted that this can cause significant lag in very late games, when materials pile up in hundreds of objects. Use at your own discretion. There can only be 5 sweeper arms, and only 5 separate sorted piles if you want only a single offloading point for shipping. All 5 arms have to be able to reach the one shipping offloader. If you don't care about sorting at all, you could build 1/5 of this setup, and have it all in one pile. You could also build a separate compactor for each material type under a single dropper setup, though you would have to manually sort and sweep them, no shipping with sorting. The sweeper arms sometimes glitch and continuously grab 20-30kg at a time instead of 1000kg. You can see this in the video at 1:15. The storage compactors must be set to sweep only, or dupes will continuously move the stuff from the piles into the compactors. Finally, overlays! How to build!
  2. The conveyor loader consumes power each tick it is sending something, so I was wondering if there are any ways to make sure it doesn't waste power ending small amounts, kind of like how you use packet combiners to make sure your thermo regulators and aquatuners don't waste power cooling tiny packets.
  3. I'm back! :'D Sorry for the unannounced hiatus to anyone who followed my previous thread. Life and a massive art block happened. Anyway. I would've just revived the old thread, but apparently it's been archived. So new thread it is!
  4. Been gone for a year, but now I'm back! I was originally just going to revive the old thread since I'm pretty sure necroing is fine in this section, but all of the image links in it are broken and super-embarrassing anyway, so I figured that I might as well start from scratch. I only have one quick sketch to show ATM, but hey. I've got something pretty cool planned. This is sort of a (admittedly self-indulgent) concept sketch for a part of said cool thing.
