I've been playing Factorio for a while now. I would like to try things differently and be as efficient as possible. I am trying to work without the Logistic Network and also trying to build a factory where I could change the things build. So I've installed the Crafting Combinator. Therefor I can change the crafting recipe on demand. I searched the forum and it surprises me that there is not a perfect and easy solution for this.
- There is a chest in the end of the lane which requests 50 Iron plates (This number can change in the meantime)
- There is a chest in the beginning of the lane with Iron plates
- An inserter is placed in the beginning of the lane
- This inserter needs to grab exactly 50 iron plates. Not one more or less
- I cant seem to stop the inserter on 50 as the inserter is always stopped or the counter does not hit 50
- I can subtract the grabbed items from the requested ones but then it never hits 0, so I cant stop the inserter
- I can count the items on the belt, but then still it wont give me exact the x items and it still wont reset the inserter
Does someone has a solution. I would like to stay away from a looped belt.
