[Rseding91] [0.16.12] Multiple filter slots on storage chests don't work

Post by loocuuwo » Tue Jan 02, 2018 3:03 am

Robots don't seem to deliver any items to storage chests with multiple filters set.

Currently this is only a concern for mods that add logistics storage with multiple filter slots.

Thanks for the report. In fact storage chests are only meant to ever have 0 or 1 filter slots. So, in the next version of 0.16 it will error if someone sets > 1 filter slot on them.

Does that mean that when we place a filter in a chest, all slots in this box will be drawn with this filter? Or if we want more slots to be filtered, we have to set it ourselves, but it can only be of the same filter?

It means you can't ever have more than 1 filter slot in a storage chest. If a mod sets it to > 1 it will error on startup.

I was a little surprised storage chests can only be filtered for one item, but on thinking about it, it makes sense. Since storage chests fill up indefinitely, mixing items isn't very good idea anyway. You'd have no control over how much of each thing ends up in there. You can always use multiple storage chests. Or alternatively, a buffer chest.
