[0.16.45+][Modding] Inserter doesn't start inserting vehicle

Post by lovely_santa » Thu May 31, 2018 10:19 am


While creating I mod I stumbled about a pretty complicated bug...

Lets begin...
First we start with placing 2 inserters, with different kind of items...

Afther that, we place our modded 'car' entity where the inserters are (NOTE: there is also a constant combinator on top of it without collision box, but with selection box, thats why you see the 'content' of that vehicle):

When the first item gets inserted, I set the filter on the inventory slots to make sure only that 1 item type can be inserted. On the picture, this is why there is no copper getting inserted.

Next up, we start emptying that vehicle again

When the vehicle is empty, I delete the filters, so any item can get inserted again.

But as you can see.. the inserter isn't inputting the copper into the vehicle.

When changing the inserter (or removing it) and placing it back solves this issue...

So, without it automaticly inserting items when it can.. i guess thats a faulty inserter :lol:

Mod + save file included too. NOTE: Update rate is set to 60 ticks, thats why it only works with burner inserts (coz they are so slow). If you change the update faster, this also happens to other inserters...

Kind regards,

Thanks for the report. It's now fixed for the next version of 0.16 or 0.17 which ever comes first.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
