Round Robin upgrade for export buses #85
Pretty simple - If I have an export bus that has more than one item programmed into it, allow me to put it in 'round robin' mode (through upgrade or some other switch). This means, after inserting one of the programmed types, if the next programmed type is available in the network inventory, insert it next, followed by repeating for each type programmed in the export bus.
The use case is machines that make different things based on what you give them. Let's say I set up an ad-hoc network connected to something that can make widgets, woozles and wombats based on input of diamond, gold or iron - I'd like it to make these things consecutively, instead of making all the widgets, then woozles and finally wombats.
Things that come to mind:
I can't find a good use for this for import buses, or storage buses set on extraction only. First, unless it's an actual inventory, you can only take whatever is ready to take.
If I am missing some other obvious way of doing this, I apologize, but I can't seem to find any way of accomplishing this with any of the available upgrades.
