Basic conveyor belt poles (non-stackable) feel like they don't need to exist exclusively as a separate item. The functionality of enabling conveyor belts to be placed with some verticality could be wrapped into the default method conveyor belt placement.

Here's how I envision it working as a continuation of an existing belt:

  1. click to set conveyor belt start
  2. click to set conveyor belt end on horizontal plane
  3. click to set height on vertical plane and complete the build
As the start of a new belt:
  1. click to set conveyor belt start on horizontal plane
  2. click to set conveyor belt start on vertical plane
  3. click to set end on horizontal plane
  4. click to set end on vertical plane and complete build

This would save a lot of extra actions in either pressing hotkeys or navigating the build menu. It would ultimately create a much smoother experience of placing conveyor belts.

Sounds pretty nice. What about for custom rotation of belt poles, though? I frequently custom place poles at specific rotations for guiding belts.

You could still rotate with the mouse wheel, maybe that comes before the horizontal plane placement.
