Routing pipes are kind of like diamond pipes, in that they route items to specific outputs. But unlike diamond pipes, routing pipes only use the input pipe to determine which way to send the item:
You can click the colors on the right-hand column to change the outputs. Multiple inputs are allowed to point to the same output, and an input can point back on itself (bouncing). If the output is not valid (no pipe), the item will distribute randomly like a normal pipe.
The default configuration (shown above) is to send the pipe directly through to the matching output on the other side. Useful for tight layouts!
Looks neat and useful! My only suggestion would be to maybe change the color of the pipe? I know you're trying to make it bronze-colored, but in visual appearance it looks A LOT like the apiarist pipe from Forestry. Maybe make yours a bit more darker or maybe just go with a copper color? Might not be a huge deal, but I could actually see people potentially using this pipe in conjunction with the apiarist pipe so having them both in the same setup could probably get super-confusing as to which is which.
Yes! Great mod! Love the routing pipe and glad to see the Insertion Pipe return. Seeing the current status of Additional Pipes(Teleport Pipes), you should do the similar thing with Power Switch and Teleport Pipes! (I know these were requested above me, just supporting the requests.)
