[0.16.51] Science lab buffers do not respect the speed of the lab

Post by Hexicube »

The left lab has +250% speed, the right lab has +2000% speed. Both labs are being fed by a stack size 1 inserter.
The labs are off due to not having all packs for the tech picked.

Both labs stop being fed when there are 2 packs. In most cases this is fine, but it can cause issues with chained labs with high speed and therefore limits design options.

If I replace the labs with mk3 assemblers (filling the right one with speed 3 modules) and set the recipe to green circuits, the left one fills to 4 iron and the right one fills to 22 iron.

Thanks for the report. I don't consider this a bug as much as a not-implemented feature for labs. The fact that it makes chaining labs not the perfect solution every time is kind of a nice trade-off. It means you have to decide if you want the ease of chaining labs or you want maximum speed.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
