Would love to see a mid-ground between the Splitter and the Smart Splitter.  This version allows you to designate one or two outputs as "overflow".  Traffic will only flow to the overflow output if the other line(s) are filled.  There is no intelligence to determine the type of item - it only cares that the designated line(s) are filled.

Use scenario:  only route unneeded (overflowed) items to central mall, otherwise they are assured to be directed to production factory.

Overflow intelligence could be added to Smart and Programmable Splitters as well.

Adding new splitter objects is not necesarry the solution, but with slight changes to existing devices the problem could be solved and it would give Smart and Programmable Splitter a reason to really use them. Please have a look at the following older suggestion on that: https://questions.satisfactorygame.com/9828/smart-splitter-any-other-any-all-for-overflow-and-sushi-model

Overflow/priority splitters would be nice.

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
