[0.17.x] Belt graphics doing funny things in small space (balancer)

Post by DrkNess »

Creating a simple belt balancer resulted in some weird belt overlaps with the new belt graphics. The middle belt has a sort of MC Escher kind of overlap going on. It does not matter in what direction you place this balancer. Though you don't see it as well going southward.

Please look at attached animated gif for details.

I belive this is intended with the belts updated new look. now its more Conveyor overlap to show which side is loading where.

That actually looks really good. despite it not being there, it looks like a Spiral upward til it drops on the belt.
The only thing I could imagine to improve it is, maybe, having the dropoff end look like it is tilted upward. But as it is, it looks fine, more or less.
Its the same illusion the cliffs use, honestly.

Oh i thought the funny thing is, how the bottom two copper ores race against each other.
Wasn't belt corner compression removed in 0.12?
