Factory replicator[marked]
« on: December 11, 2016, 02:16:34 PM »


It is very annoying that we cannot prevent the colony from automatically crafting things : they make tons of torches (which are, by the way, non stackable) and tons of food while they already have more than too much, and sometimes if you want to get some resources from the processors, you can't because as soon as they are "created", they are automatically used for crafting.
It is also very annoying to have to *take* resources from the store to use them in the factory replicator : It doesn't really add any logic or "real" sense to it, it's just a pain to have to go back and forth in the menus, and also it makes the colony believe that those resources are not there anymore, which in turn makes them auto-craft them...

So, my suggestions :
- Allow disabling of auto-craft in colony (and maybe later a system to prioritize or fine-tune what they do, although this would probably be a lot of efforts for a small gain)
- Allow the factory replicator to use resources directly from the store
- Make torches stackable ;)

Maybe also add some like you can create items with the factory replicator when it has the resources so it auto crafts item when it can and the items you want.
