Restricting inserters to one item

Post by AcolyteOfRocket »

Hi.

I noticed an issue with a simple train loader in my latest game where an inserter was unable to proceed because it had the "loose change" of multiple item load action left in its hand, meaning it could not pick up an item of a different type.

I can see this being an bit of an annoyance so I have to ask, is there a way to have an inserter only pick up one item in the late game. I would rather not have to avoid researching inserter stack bonuses as I may wish to use them elsewhere and in any case I might autoclick the research like a dozy pillock :roll:

to me this is a bug but it is a side effect of the link with the "Stack inserter" that should have no link.

I believe Bob's mod does split the research to being two different ones rather then one like in vanilla. He also adds some faster inserters too (along with stack and filter variants, even stack filter ones too).

Bob's Logistics is the mod I believe.
