This is an interesting idea, and it was discussed with Angelo and Max in a recent coding stream. Although they’re tackling this transporting issue in a deeper way by revamping how the AI handles long Trek’s, there should be some sort of transport system as well.
I have an idea as to how it could be implemented:
You craft an “outbox” storage container and assign an animal to it as well as a “destination” storage container, then once there’s enough items in the outbox, that animal will transport the items to the destination.
How do people think that would work?
