When storing resources in containers, you usually don't remember the maximum incoming flow rate (ie x items/per minute) which upstream can generate. You have to recalculate this if you want to send stuff downstream from it, going all the chain upstream.

It would be really useful to have signs on containers (yep, it is related to https://questions.satisfactorygame.com/4127/add-the-possibility-to-name-storage-container-or-place-signs ), but may be specialized, not neccessary visible from a far, like general naming.

Next level of usefulness would be if the numbers could be calculated automatically (somewhat similar to power graphs - maximum and current productivity upstream). While this may be complex if we allow loops, may be with limited depth...

August 28th update: We've removed downvotes! One major reason is because we don't want to discourage folks from posting legitimate suggestions / reports / questions with fear of being mass downvoted (which has been happening a LOT). So we now allow you to upvote what you like, or ignore what you don't. Points have also been adjusted to account for this change.
Please use the search function before posting a new question and upvote existing ones to bring more attention to them, It will help us a lot. <3
