Blackbox Mod

This mod allows you to "blackbox" sets of buildings together to improve your UPS
WARNING: This is an alpha release of the mod. Use at your own risk or if you would like to help support development of this mod

How to use this mod

  • First install the mod, and reboot the game.
  • Go into blueprint copy mode, select the input station(s) of your blackbox setup and press Ctrl + N
  • Press Ctrl + M to open up the Blackbox Manager Panel to view the blackboxed
  • Use "Highlight" to view what buildings got grouped together as a blackbox
  • Settings
    • Ideally, you should not need to toggle any setting except for "Auto-blackbox" (I still recommend manual blackboxing at this stage, since the auto-blackbox algorithm goes through the stations in the order they were placed. The algorithm cannot discriminate between blackboxable and non-blackboxable setups without simulating them, so it will probably waste a lot of time on non-blackboxable setups)
    • You can untick "Analyse in background thread" if you want to blackbox in game time and check your blackbox setup for inefficiencies
    • The rest of the settings are currently for debugging purpose. You will only need to change them if you have been in contact with me on the DSP Discord

I will provide clearer explanations once the mod is out of alpha. For now, I just want to get this out there
