[1.1.33] Inserters lock onto curved rails and fail to recognize other targets

Post by Drogiwan Cannobi »

Hi there,
This is not really a full blown bug but I noticed some odd inserter behavior yesterday:
When you build an inserter facing a curved rail (with enough room left to build a target chest) it will lock into "train feeding mode" and not notice when a chest is built in front of it. When you build or blueprint the chest first, it works. When you delete the chest and rebuild it, it breaks again. I've uploaded a video of the problem to reddit.

Woops, I forgot about forum etiquette, sorry about that. Will remember to do a proper search next time!
I don't see a way to delete the post, but feel free to close or delete it if possible.
(Still, it seems a little unusual for factorio that this has been around for 3 years, seems to be considered undesirable (at least by Rseding) and still wasn't changed.)
