Ok it only took a couple of days for me to figure out PI. It looks pretty good. Not difficult to figure out.

The only suggestion I have is can you please change the routing to allow me to type in an overall figure? Like maybe 1000000? It would be nice if I could route ALL of the incoming materials out of a storage with one route. Even better is that as the flow amounts change when I deplete a resource, rescan, and select a new flow, I won't have to kill off old routes that are not sufficient for the new flow rate and build totally new ones. Not links; routes.

Please take off the hard coded denominator on routes, so we can set them to infinite or 10000000. Either way is great. I understand sometimes someone might want to route just some of the material this way and some of it that way, but so far every time I've set up a route I want the max, so it would be nice to have an option like 'max'.

Hope this is clear enough.

For some clarity here's an example:

I've got 3 extractors. Each one has a different flow rate. Every time I deplete and rescan the flow rate will be different. But for extractors why do I care what the flow rate is in the route? Wouldn't I always want all the flow to go into the next unit, especially if it's a storage unit? So it would be nice to have the following:

Extractors have these flow rates per cycle:
509
403
564

But on my outgoing route from the extractor to the storage unit I want this kind of flow:

1000000 Outgoing
1000000 Outgoing
1000000 Outgoing

This way I don't have to delete and reset the routes when I deplete resources, rescan, and get new flow rates that are higher than my original routes. Like if I depleted the above three, rescanned, and got:

845
786
976

I would have to delete my old routes and recreate. Either that or I would end up creating a second route for the difference. It gets pretty complicated to manage.

Same for the outbound of storage. Instead of having 3 flows out, 1 for each extractor; it would be nice if I could just set up 1 outgoing flow to the processor like so:

1000000 Outgoing

So as to handle ALL the material going out in one route that would never have to be reset, regardless of what new flow rates I got from my extractors upon rescan.

This will make the whole process much less tedious.

Post in the stickied V4 thread for any other feedback.
This particular routing issue with the storage unit has already been brought up.

Will do. Thanks for the link, man.
