soo what I find abit op is that
- MK1 Convayer belts : 1 iron plate
- MK2 Convayer belts : 1 Reinforced iron plate
- MK3 Convayer belt : 1 steel plate

reason I find this op is due to steel once u have a foundry its really simple to make and each time u make steel u get 2 steel ingots which means that's 1 steel plate meaning a mk3 belt u can make soo its abit too op and I was wondering if u can make it to like Reinforced Steel plates instead to make it abit less op and harder to get like the Mk4 belts

Thank you!!

Nah, they just need to make the mk.2 easier.

As dave said, it's not that the mk.3 is too easy it's the mk.2 is too hard, which is a balance issue between the reinforced plates and other materials. But honestly though, reinforced plates are pretty easy really, just some iron plates that really make at a high rate, and some screws, or, if you find the alternate, some plates and some copper wire, which, at that level, you rarely use.

1. I made a post about this a few days ago. It definitely is easier to make the Mk. 3 belts than Mk. 2 and that's a balance problem between the Reinforced Iron Plates and Steel Beams. The Reinforced Iron Plates need to be easier and cheaper to produce.

2. It's 3 steel ingots per steel beam, not 2. So without any alternate recipes, 3 smelters running simultaneously will output enough steel to make two steel beams, which is two Mk. 3 belts per cycle.
