Fast belts have lower density, than other belts

Post by Cerbsen »

Tested with 0.10.12 and 0.11.3.

A line of 100 normal or express belts at maximum compression contain 712 items, while fast belts only contain 642 items.

This could explain the Transport belts/Physics results.

Awaited throughput items/min would be 1444,5, so measured results are only 82% off.

Just to be sure though this has nothing to do with corners, unless I'm missing something? What the OP seems to be showing is that for a perfectly straight fixed length of belt, fast belts cannot hold as many items as basic or express belts ...that doesn't make much sense.
