[Not a Bug] transport belt

Post by FreeER »

I'm assuming it's a bug when one side of the transport belt does not continue even when there is still room?
pic to explain (I'd set up an assembly station for science packs 1 and 2) Image

It's easy enough to fix by simply adding a second belt and using the long-armed inserters, but since this does not always happen (my ores/coal line works fine) I figured i'd ask if this was well known :)

fix: Image

Regardless this is still a great game!

P.S. WOW, I just realized I've spent the last five hours just playing around on here :)

Your problem here is, the green research packs are on the right, but the red research packs are not on the left, they are actually at the center, so they sometimes block the greens, while other times it works fine.
To make sure they are on the left, you need to do something like put red research on another belt, which then meets the main one from the left.

Thanks. I didn't realize that the transport belts had a 'center' lol, though i suppose it does make sense. Well, that may help some of my designs :D

Again, thanks! I'd recommend that that info go into either the tutorial or on the videos

P.S if it is in there somewhere and i missed it, well i'll go ahead and say oops and sorry now :oops:

No problem, I'm just a regular user, but I agree it should be in the tutorial eventually.
I think I'll make a forum guide when I have the time.
