[1.1.21] Bizarre inserter behavior when low on power

When the factory is low on power, inserters are behaving very strangely. In this clip, the inserter is struggling to rotate back to pickup position in a way that is not expected. The pickup location has a belt that is filled sparsely with coal due to power being low. While the inserter is rotating f...

[kovarex] [1.1.21] Blueprint containing only landmines does not snap to grid

Create a new blueprint of landmines and only landmines in any configuration and set the blueprint to snap to grid with absolute positioning.

When placing the blueprint, the blueprint grid is rendered but not respected.

Thanks for the report, it is now fixed for the next version.
YES!!111!!!

I never thought this was a bug, just a sort of limitation of copy/paste not being supported in the editor, so I never thought to report it. But this is a much loved bugfix from me!

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

I don't know if skipping concrete jobs entirely if concrete wasn't found is as straightforward as that. A single tile of concrete could be under two different roboport construction areas, and each area may or may not have concrete. If you want to short circuit all the concrete attempts, you'll have ...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

I didn't want to get into complex solutioning as Rseding and other developers at Wube have demonstrated extraordinary skillsets and success in this area. I still would like this suggesting to be the simple idea of increasing the basic number of attempts per tick. I know that strikes most developers ...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

Per tick performance right now is just checking one job for potential matches (bots available and item available). If you check 10 jobs for potential matches each tick, it'll probably be 10 times more. My testing showed that performance is not entirely dependent on the number of failures. More jobs ...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

Failed attempts are more costly because you have to try it again. Each construction bot job has inevitably 1 successful attempt and N failed attempts. When you have all the materials in the game and the bots can build anything at any time, the processing power required is minimal. When you place hug...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

Well, the thing about tweaking the scheduling algorithm is that the solutions presented are talking about determining whether or not a certain item has a certain trait or piece of data about it (little hope of being built). As far as I know, this doesn't actually exist. If you want to treat items th...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

I did not have a similar experience as you ssilk. Poles and roboports were not prioritized and this is why players place skeleton blueprints that have only poles and roboports in 100% speedruns prior to placing all other entities. Last night I did a test in my 100% planning practice. I changed the b...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

Thue is correct in that it is between 1 and 3. I mistakenly added 1+3 assuming that it could have 1 failure and 3 successes in a single tick. But instead it is just 1 failure or up to 3 successes, but not both. Thue is also correct in regards to the failures being the main problem. If it stayed at 3...

Re: Increase bot queue processing rate

If increasing the bot queue causes significant performance, then I'm okay with not making the change. If we believe it *might* impact performance, but there is no actual evidence to support that, then I still push for it to be considered. The thing about performance of the bot queue is... * If you h...

Ah yes, the link Anti posted is the same issue. I thought I'd make a bug for it as it happens every time I play for years and hasn't been changed but since it is already reported and in the won't fix category, we can probably remove this one.

In the current version, the system checks 10 (EDIT: CORRECTION, it checks between 1 and 3 by default depending on successes or failures) ghosted entities per tick to see if a construction bot is able to perform the job of building that entity. In many games players will have 1000s of ghosted entitie...

Smart item picker when drag-building certain entities over ghosts

When building a ghosted blueprint, players are often times switching between items by hitting Q (Pipette tool) and clicking. When the player is building belts, splitters, and/or transport belts **and** the player is dragging via the mouse (So they did not click the tile), automatically match what is...
