I would love to see a feature that can add a trigger to containers, things in the manufacturing category, truck/train stations, vehicles, and power generation. The triggers would allow you to write simple rules that would result in an action when the rules were met.
For example: if one of assembler X's ingredient inventory is 25% full, have container Y release 50 units of inventory.
This could become an amazing and powerful feature. Vehicles would make intelligent deliveries, conveyors wouldn't just fill up and become useless for any other purpose, and smart splitters would be far more useful.
