smart logistic and storage

Post by mactuan12 »

When logistic bots take items from an active provider chest then they will take it to the closest storage chest to them that is free.
However, it would be better if they would look for a storage chest with a filter for that particular item in it first.
Then travel to that no matter how far it is.
If there are multiple chests with the same filter then it will go to the closest.

From Wiki:
"To place items into storage chests, the bots search for a storage chest that already stores items of the same type, then for one which has its filter set to the item type. If that can't be found, they choose the first storage chest with a free slot from the list, which is sorted by the order they were built in."

So you need to find all storage chests with items, but no filter and destruct them. :)
Or use supply-chests (*) only - with all consequences (also a possible solution).

(*) Edit: I meant buffer-chests of course.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.
Have you used the Advanced Search today?

or to ghetto enforce it, use buffer chests... there's a catch to that method tho...

Why would it be better? Current method works the best as far as I'm concerned.
