[Rseding91] [16.13] Bot dispatch too slow for iron plates (among others)

Post by Gynther » Wed Jan 03, 2018 11:50 pm

A requester chest requesting iron plates will only have ~30 "on the way" plates at any time, no matter the satisfaction as shown here: https://i.imgur.com/iItzHEs.png (My factory has well the required logistic and supply to fill it as shown here: https://i.imgur.com/BHFPsOC.png

seems to affect certain things more than others. Placed a new requester chest in the middle of my base and tried to request 20k of some items
Iron plates: stuck at ~30 on the way
Copper plates: slow increased to ~200 on the way
green circuits: fast increase to ~200 on the way
steel: fast increase to ~200 on the way

According to /u/ASDFGerte this is a new bug in 16.13

I can confirm that in my factory, when I enable a new blueprinted factory (with combinator set the request of the chest), resulting in a big spike in demands, that logistics network take quite some time till all items are underway.

It seems like there are some bots delivering some items, and when the first item is actualy delivered the others kick in, and start bringing the other requested amounts.
You can find all my mods on the mod portal.

No current mods (Used Squeak Through, but disabled it when i noticed the potential bug)

Replication steps:
Place requester chest
request 20k iron to chest
it should fill rather slow (at most i've noticed about 40 on the way)

Some additional testing:

Started a new game and consoled my way into the stuff i need. i could not replicate the bug there.

I also tried earlier version but my save could not be loaded. this however means that i've redownloaded the game several times since removing the only active mod so that should be cleared.

Also when i first noticed the bug the highest "on the way" i saw on iron plate requester chests was about ~25, now a good while later its up to ~40 and sometimes ~50, its still way below what's needed to actaully fill the chest.

Edit: Some more testing, Iron plates in active storage chests are distributed immediatly to where they should be, this means that while they still have iron plates my requester chests get what they want. The moment the active chests are empty and only passive provider chests and storage chests have iron plates the requester goes back to having only a small "on the way" plates.

Will you provide a small explanation of what happened? I'm quite curious

A misunderstanding on my part about how part of the changed logistic network requester dispatching worked.

Each logistic network has a list of each item type being requested and I thought it would only ever have the item type there if there was a requester actively wanting that item. But it actually works by always having that item in the list as long as at least 1 requester has a filter for it with the internal list on that item being which ones actively want the item(s).

i just came here to post a similar bug, i use robots to deliver water barrels to feed my reactor, but the robots are now too slow, i have plenty of barrels empty now, but they are not being delivered to my machines with speed modules to make water barrels, neither is the purple chests dumping empties out of the water being emptied back into the network.

if i have a request for 400 barrels, empty or water, they should be robots should deliver them rapidly, i have plenty of robots, in 16.12 i would have 1000+ robots always busy just to fill the requests for water. built the reactor on a separate logistics network just to see how many i needed.

i can include save file if needed

Came here to report this too. It would be cool if this fix could be released soon, because it sounds like it affects any base with logistic robots (which I imagine is most bases).

Confirmed. Game is unplayable for me at the moment due to this.

I have the same problem and it's very visible in my ore-> steel smelter.
Good to hear that it will be fixed in the new release.

Edit:
Just updated to 16.14 and it seems like the problem is fixed. E.g. my iron plate production almost doubled.
Thanks!
