Drills suddenly stop working, although ore still under them.

Don't know how to use a machine? Looking for efficient setups? Stuck in a mission?

Hi.

Every few minutes I find a drill, which suddenly stopped working. The drills are putting ore directly into a chest. And the chest is not empty. Its not on uranium either. This seems not to happen with vanilla mines. I am using the Mod Mining+, which has modified mines, so they cope one tile more of range. Since the mod just increases the range, I am not sure if the bug is in the mod or in the core game, which searchs for ore in range. Does anyone has an idea? I am using the newest Factorio and Mod version.

Another thing I have noticed is that those mines affected get a red cross on the entity when they stop working. A behaviour which can't be observed on "unbuggy" empty mines, which just stop working without having a red cross on them.

Uhm. Can be deleted. Seems the Diggy Scenario automatically flags them for deconstruction....
