Storage Chests Target Priority

Post by PapaTru3 »

In the Logistic network Wiki page in section 5 Priorities of robots I've noticed that it's missing an extra bit about storage chests' target priority.
When I did some in-game tests I've seen that the storage chest with the filter of the specific item will be filled first when you have "discarded" items in your network. For example when I have wood on me that I put in the trash slots it will prioritize taking it to the storage chest with the wood filter over the storage chest without the filter, even if the former is considerably farther away.

In conclusion I think that there needs to be another storage chest in the target priority diagram that specifies that it will prioritize taking the item to the chest with the filter over the chest without it.

Hey, the priority of filtered storage chests over unfiltered empty chests is mentioned in the explaining text below the target priority diagram.
