Curved Conveyor Tube
The curved conveyor tube is a pipe that can transfer items from two angled points. It is cheaper to build compared to the Conveyor, but is limited to only 2 ports. For straight conveyors, the player must use Conveyors or Conveyor Tubes. For a full explanation on conveyors, see Conveyor Mechanics.
An interesting feature of the curved conveyor tube is that it also has indicator lights on it that inform the player of its status. Currently, there are only two states that it can be in:
- When not powered, the lights on the conveyor tube will turn red. However, this does not mean items cannot be transferred.
- Important Note
- It should be noted that the curved conveyor tube is only compatible with large conveyor ports.
Curved conveyor tubes can help the player if they need to go in different directions to reach the device they want to connect to on the other side. An example of its use is below:
- Compared to the Conveyor it's actually less useful (having only 2 conveyor sides), heavier and more expensive in terms of Iron Ingots. However, it is stronger in terms of integrity since it's made up of sturdy Steel Plate unlike the Conveyor which is primarily constructed out of weaker Interior Plates.
