[0.17.53] Modded: Incorrect Pollution Tooltip for Inserters

Post by QGamer »

What did you do?
I created a mod that made burner inserters produce pollution.
What happened?
When I run the game, the tooltip says that burner inserters produce pollution:
The tooltip associated with a Burner Inserter.

However, the inserter does not really produce any pollution at all. This is evident by looking at the pollution statistics graph and the map.
What did you expect to happen instead?
I expected the tooltip to be correct.
If the burner inserter doesn't pollute, the tooltip should not claim that it does.

According to this post by Rseding91, inserters cannot produce pollution, no matter what.

In this case, it would be best if starting the game created an error trying to attach pollution to an inserter, seeing as they cannot pollute. This would give modders the indication that inserters cannot and will not pollute.

Thanks for the report, the tooltip won't show any pollution in the next version.

Wait, they really don't? I assumed it was accurate that they did, because they burn stuff to work. That is nice to know, and that it is indeed intended to be zero.

Shouldn't a burner inserter produce pollution, though? I mean, it's burning stuff in order to operate....
