Belts are turning. Other objects turn on their own

Post by Fingerz » Wed Aug 21, 2019 2:09 am

I am getting bugs where the transport belts are turning and causing carried items to move onto other belts or stop. Also objects are turning like oil plants, mining rigs, and other objects just turn on their own. This just started. I dont know if its windows or the new version of the game. I recently updated windows. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game with same results.Very frustrating..

Thanks for the report. Are you pressing the "R" key or "Shift + R" when hovering over things in the game? That key does exactly what you describe.

No objects are rotating by themselves. The only ones that dont seem to rotate are the train tracks. Belts , inserters, assembling machines,underground belts all rotate on their own. It doesnt hap[pen constantlysa, however it seems to happen more when I am walking near them. Its very frustrating when I have objects placed on belts going to incorrect belts because the belt rotated. I have deleted and reinstalled the game, this just started about 3 weeks ago.

In Settings => Controls, what do you have in the rotate / Reverse rotate lines ?

Are you using any mods?

My guess is you are accidentally hitting the R key, either because you make mistakes typing or your keyboard is broken.

I swear this has happened to me as well a few times, but I couldn't entirely outrule the possibility of having hit R at a very unfortunate timing, which seemed by far like the most simple explanation, so I fixed it and moved on.
