Small Stockpile Inventory Physics

Description
With this mod installed small stockpiles use inventory physics, meaning that when upright they will suck any items on top of them into the stockpile, and when turned sideways/upside down they will drop their items into the world.

Report bugs on Git Reports[gitreports.com]

Note: These stockpiles will stop dropping items into the world when the floating object limit is close to being reached, to avoid losing items.

Wow, I can see this working to repel attackers.

hey, I would like to see advanced version of all crafting blocks that would have a hopper to suck items that drop into them. Also the function to make crafting lines that can be set to repeat like in Space Engineers. They should look like heavily advanced clockwork with wooden arms and conveyors with power got from windmill power. Thanks for reading my suggestion!

Are you going to update this mod for the 0.7 update?

@Sarianos @XCanG Sorry for the response. Some type of clockwork timers would be cool. I may consider it someday. Not in this mod though.
@Sullivas No, however it is trivial to add this to any modded stockpile. But you do need a compatibility mod to add support.

Does this work with modded piles? What about sandstone in the vanilla pile?

@Equinox Pardon if it's a bit forward of me to suggest, but couldn't some 'clockwork' modelling be added to a lockable catch-block and scripted with a timer function to create a lore/setting friendly mechanical on/off timer block?

Simple metallic spring loading and clockwork were known in the late medieval era after all, and if you wanted to invest the time for realism you could add a 'winding' function and a activation limit, so it has to be re-wound manually after every few activation/turns and possibly even a connection to mechanical/wind/steam power to automatically keep it wound for full automation.

A CPU works purely on a on/off switch after all, so the possibilities are pretty vast I guess.

you could use a complicated gear system as a timer, but then youd need a source of power for it

Hm, since ME have no timers it will be hard to automate things (in this case unloading trains with ores in it)

@XCanG Angle doesn't affect speed.
