Default Conveyor States


I didn´t find a way to turn the states of Conveyors from the Conveyor Module on.
In Conveyor Module 1.0.8 it´s allways "Collecting" in 1.0.10 (GP 7.7.0 Beta) it stays "Idle". I´m looging for a way to show "Conveying", "Blocked", "Empty".
Does anybody have a hint, where to find this?

I asked the same question months ago to FLexsim. I was told that define conveyor states is really tricky. In fact, it can only be "BUSY" or not.

You'll probably have to build your own state collector... Maybe using Decision Points to decide when custom states are changing?
