A Conveyor Splitter is a building that takes items from a single input Belt and outputs them between three other belts.[1] If an output belt is not fast enough and gets stuffed, and if any filter applied allows it, the items on the input belt will be divided equally between all others non stuffed output belts. If all output belts are blocked, the items at the input belt will have to wait.

Types[edit | edit source]

There are three types of splitters available, each with different sorting capabilities.[2]

Basic[edit | edit source]

The standard splitter appears to simply split items between its outputs in sequence. If any output is full, it will distribute the incoming items into the remaining outputs evenly.

Smart[edit | edit source]

Main article: Smart Splitter

Splitter with 3 outputs. Each output can have a filter set to either "none", "any" or one specific item type.

Programmable[edit | edit source]

Main article: Programmable Splitter

Splitter with 3 outputs. Each output can have multiple filters.

Building[edit | edit source]

The Conveyor Splitter.png Conveyor Splitter and Conveyor Merger.png Conveyor Merger have fairly large collision boxes which are likely to obstruct additional parallel belts. For example, a splitter for Screw.png Screw belt is likely to block the construction of Iron Plate.png Iron Plate belt. It is advised to build other nearby belts before building the splitter/merger.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is easy to differentiate between input slot and output slot by looking at the shape of LED light at the belt connector. The output is indicated by a arrow-like light, while the input is 3 smaller dotted light.
  • If the foundation below the splitter is demolished after placing the splitter, the foundation may not be built back, because the collision box of the splitter extends down 1 meter into the floor. The same goes for Mergers.
