[wheybags] [0.17.62] NPE: Compilatron blocking access to crate

Running through the NPE right now. Compilatron managed to position itself right where I have a crate feeding the assembler that is crafting science packs. Compilatron's selection box completely surrounds the crate's selection , so I cannot drop more items into it. Trivial to work around in this case...

Re: [16.36] Inserters get stuck

I ran into a similar situation recently, except it was a stack inserter that was seemingly unable to deposit items it had in hand into an empty and waiting chest. https://i.imgur.com/GiXa88j.png Everything indicated that it should have been working. Inserter was oriented the right way, powered up, n...

Re: Friday Facts #231 - Belt compression & Crash log uploading

Wube will be subject to the GDPR. However they decide to implement crash log reporting, if it's good enough for that, it's good enough for me. I looked through some saved crash logs and the only thing that might even be remotely considered PII is my Windows username embedded in some pathnames. Not e...

I really should be preparing for my New Year's Eve party, so feel free to take a break and leave the bug-fixing for 2018. :D

Re: Burner inserter fuel bonus

Not to mention that this parallels the existing mechanic with fuel type affecting speed and acceleration in vehicles.

[15.28] Item placement discrepancy from inserters to belts

This bug has different symptoms than the behaviour described in https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=213&t=50651, but I suspect they share the same root cause, and thus will likely be solved with the 0.16 belt mechanics optimization. I'll leave it to the devs to decide if this can be moved to...

Re: [15.28] Back-to-back underground belt causes inserter delay

Just to close this off in case anyone else rediscovers this before 0.16: it appears the actual cause of the delay is a discrepancy in where the initial item of a stack is placed on the belt. Normally, items are placed flush against the edge of the belt (closest to the inserter). However, on subseque...

Re: [15.28] Back-to-back underground belt causes inserter delay

Thanks for report, but in optimized-belts branch (coming 0.16) this problem is gone :) Hooray for the devs! I discovered what might be the same (or perhaps related) bug, which looks like it will also be fixed with belt optimizations. I'll file a separate bug report and hopefully it can be immediate...

Re: [15.28] Back-to-back underground belt causes inserter delay

This video demonstrates end-loading vs side-loading on normal and underground express belts. In both cases, the shortest underground belt suffers a slight performance penalty compared to the longer ones. However, when end-loading, only one of the two inserters depositing directly on an express belt ...

Re: [15.28] Back-to-back underground belt causes inserter delay

Upon further testing, it looks like there is more inconsistency than just the length of the underground belt. I'll try to capture video of each scenario and post here.

[Harknonnen] [15.28] Back-to-back underground belt causes inserter delay

A stack inserter end-loading to an underground belt is delayed by one tick on the return swing if the other end of the underground belt is in the adjacent tile. This is with a +12 stack bonus and express belts. Tested with north- and south-facing inserters. I have not tested other configurations yet...
