This should be made a sticky.

Suggestions:
Change the color of the arrow?
Red or yellow?

But then again, some people STILL won't get it.

Make a tooltip for it like when you start a new game.

Or a tutorial?

-Thanks

I agree, there should probably be a yellow or red overlay of arrows when the Conveyor Tool is active which is showing which direction a conveyor is going... because it's an ongoing issue.

You what would be awesome?
An animated conveyor with flashing lights that are flashing in the direction the conveyor is going, like the kind of lights that you see at an airport runway or something similar. One pair of lights at one end and another pair of lights on the other(very very small lights of course). And then when you lay it down, the "beginning" pair flash first followed by the "ending" pair.

Just a suggestion. I think would look cool when you have 5 or more of them lined up. Would look like one of those old style news tickers that you see in 1940's movies.
