Encased conveyor pipe and corner (because junction is slow)
We have been told time and time again that the conveyor junction is a performance hog. For this reason I would very much appreciate the addition of encased and airtight conveyor pipe and corner, so I can make my small airtight builds without spamming the conveyor junction.

I have a mod i haven't published with 1x5,1x3, 1x1 conveyors that save on performance, they're all just airtight versions with less performance slow-down. it'd be nice if conveyors did like armor and 'hid' themselves if covered on all sides by armor etc. Also, X conveyors as well.

There are a couple mods out there which encompass the whole spectrum of conveyor blocks. While I cannot speak to any performance hits they might introduce, I have always wondered why there were only the three "vanilla" blocks in the game, rather than the entire possible variety, as well as a "pass-through" block as this idea conceptualizes. I like this idea very much, but thing it could be taken to even more block types, and possibly "armored conveyors" as well. Great idea!

I'd really like if the encased conveyors acted like armor blocks, so they would be flush with neighboring armor blocks and occluded faces wouldn't be rendered. That would help so much for performance and aesthetics.

After doing some experiments, I have discovered it is totally possible to create conveyors that actually act like armor blocks, with all the performance benefits that come with them. Just create a StandaloneBox armor block (so it can be rotated), where some of the models look like they have conveyor ports. But then also give the block a which doesn't have a collision mesh or anything to render, but it does have the conveyor port dummies. If some modder were willing to create the side models as well as the dummy models, then we could totally have a mod for this.

Good idea, it'd be handy to have airtight conveyor systems without relying solely on performance heavy junctions.

Please help support my "Furniture and Greenhouse" idea. It really is a good idea, if I say so myself. Personally, I think the game has overlooked a vital part of ship building. We have no furniture, like beds and desks or no bathroom items, like sinks, toilets and showers. Anyway, there's more to my idea, I would appreciate any votes. Thank you. https://feedback.keenswh.com/idea/furniture-and-greenhouse59c67aa110fc8
