[Rseding91] [16.0] Burner miners not being fed with horizontal inserter

Post by FISHMANPET » Wed Dec 13, 2017 6:44 pm

Hopefully this really is a bug and not me doing something really stupid...

At the start of the game I use burner miners feeding each other like this to build up coal reserves. On the left of the image you can see 3 pairs working as intended, the miner feeds into a chest, a burner inserter takes from the chest and feeds the next miner. On the top I had this arrangement, except the burner miner on the right ran out of minerals, so I remove it. Then I noticed that the miner had run out of fuel, despite there being coal in the box, and the burner inserter having coal. I also had electricty and a few regular inserters, and those had the same problem. I tried both burner and regular inserters going into a boiler and those did not have the problem.

After playing around I bit I also noticed that if I added coal to the source box, the inserter (burner or regular) would then fill up the miner. So I think there's something that's not updating between the burner miner and any inserters feeding it, but that does get updated when a box that feeds an inserter is updated. That's why the pairs of miners feeding each other continues to work, while feeding from just a chest does not.

I've attached the save game, no mods, just a clean vanilla save.

Can confirm, I can even reproduce this when building the same arrangement (inserting from east to west or vice versa).

I have the same problem. Gamebreaking bug here.

Thanks for the report. It's now fixed for the next version of 0.16.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

Don't know whether it still matters, but not only horizontal feeding is buggy. My burner inserter does not feed burner drill from south to north.
Also, on the other map (finished since 0.15), I experimented: and everything was ok, either with burner or electric inserters.
