Description
This mod adds 3 conveyor blocks that are essentially an advanced rotor with a huge diference: they rotate on a diferent axis.

All blocks are survival ready (has build stages and components) and they're paintable.
They also contain LOD models to have minimal impact on performance.
DX11 supported.

And as an added bonus, their collission meshes are smaller than a full block, so they can move just fine in tight spaces.

Stats
Mod State: Done
Available for: Stations, Large Ships and Small Ships
Paintable: Yes
Survival Ready: Yes

Temporary fixes and game issues
In order for the hinges to be properly limited to 180 degrees I've set up a script that sets small/medium/large hinges to lower torque in order to respect the -90/+90 limits.
If you change the torque keep in mind that the real limits will also change because of the existing game issue with rotors.

To-do
- Fix grading textures on DX11

Unfixable Issues
- Don't touch the "offset" slider or it'll go crazy, if you did then right-click it to reset.


Thanks
Harag - for his blender addon and for his provided help;
Arindel - for suggesting grading and providing the raw grading image.

I don't know what you want fixed though, it worked fine last time I used it. Can you give more details?

Desperately needed in Space Engineers. Fixes yet another Keen oversigh.

next update is it possible to have an advanced rotor that is able to connect to convayors from the sides?

Would be cool if he updated them to the new block look.
