Inserters with lower stack limit should be slower

Post by uukgoblin »

It turns out that a stack inserter with a stack limit of 11 fills up a chest faster than one with a stack limit of 12 when picking items from a fully compressed belt (with both lanes full).

I don't think that should be the case.

Can someone explain why this happens? Is it a bug or a feature?

Here's a blueprint illustrating the issue (read the description):

I guess the one that's limited to 11 spends less time to chase items on the belt than the one with stack size 12. Also depending on the inserter's position, when it swings to drop items in the chest, the longer the arc, the more time it spends turning.
The stack inserter really shines on inventory-to-inventory transfers.
