[0.18.4] Car getting stuck between inserters

Post by JaJe »

Hello,
I am not sure if it's intended but very often my car get stuck between inserter with no way to get out but only destroying/removing the inserter. This also happens when you hit the Steam Engine and it is difficult to get out.

You can always pickup your car instead of deconstructing part of your factory.

A belt can move your car and thus transport it to a place with an orientation where it could not have ended up driving.

What if your car inventory is full? It would be a pain removing the car..

Part of the problem is the belt pushing the car into the inserter. As planetmaker said, the belt can also be used to move the car to a safe place. Just rotate a few belts and move the car someplace safe.

Don't forget to rotate the belts back. :)

Tried that, I cannot rotate the belt below the car. The cursor will select the car, not the belt. Even rotating other belts in front or behind the car didn't solve anything.

Set a deconstruction planner to only pick up the items holding down the automobile, which look to be the burner inserters and the boiler?
