[0.17.66]Deactivated inserters dumps stuff in hand into trains

Post by Lubricus »

I don't know if it's a bug or feature.
Deactivated stack inserters dump the items they are holding in the hand in parked trains.
That is a problem in my train Green circuits build. The build deactivate the stack filter inserters that output green circuits when there is no parked train for picking them up. I do that so that i don't get Green circuits in the Iron plate train.
The workaround that I come up with is to set the stack size on the inserters to an dividable number of what fits a train car i.e. 10. so that there is 0 green circuits left in the inserters hands when the green circ train leaves.
It's the same with setting removing filters in filter inserters, I prefer that method so the inserters can sleep a little better. That is even more unclear if it's a bug or feature.

It's neither; it's just an artifact of the game. Something to work around when your builds get clever enough to run into it.

I think it's needed for easy clocking of inserters...
