I'm starting to get frustrated with what seems like an excessive range to tractor pads..I swear their at least double what they were in 0.6. When you're trying to organize stuff between mobile techs, TSs and bases its really annoying to have chunks being snatched from halfway across the screen. Receivers obviously need that kind of range but pads are so insane that I've started building harvesting techs that use pads instead of receivers. I discovered that you could use them as silos totally by accident and it eliminates the need for both raw material silos and receivers. They'll even backfill in series as long as there is a filter conveyor between 'em. Maybe I once knew this and just forgot..I haven't done much crafting for a long time because its been pointless.
