Special Filter Slot for Silos

Recommended Posts

Basically, my idea is to add a special slot to the top of the medium storage silo. If the slot is empty, the silo behaves like normal. But if you place an item into this slot, the other 24 slots become matching hologram slots like the kind you see on printers.

So for example: let's say you put resin in the top slot. All items currently in the silo that aren't resin get ejected on to the floor, and clicking on an empty slot will automatically fill it with resin from your backpack.

Only players can interact with the top slot. If you have something outputting items to or from your silo, the top slot will always be ignored.

This change should make sorting items a little easier. You'll be able to add items to a silo quickly without having to drag them in, and also have the option to remove unwanted items in an instant.

yeah, ideas of this kind come up every now and then. i thought about the same for the silos but due to the massively annoying clipping issues those cause i thought it would be more reasonable to introduce another end game storage that has a very similar mechanic as you described but also eliminates most of the severe clipping as well.

Kind of had a quite similar idea before there were silos... With some additional features ;)
