Toggling the personal roboport off will cause the robots to return right NOW

Post by Bertus »

TL;DR
Toggling the personal roboport off will cause the robots to return to the player right NOW.
What ?
I often am building stuff and then robots will not return to me because of a cliff that needs removing but me having no cliff explosives on me. I can then wait until the robots run out of power for them to return, of I can mine them (which usually causes the ghost of the item the bot is trying to place to get deleted as well).

So why not: when you toggle the personal roboport off all the construction bots return to the player right away.
Why ?
I don't like to wait half an hour for my bots to catch up / run out of power. When I am waiting I am not playing the game, which is boring. I want to play the game.

That is indeed an annoyance and this could fix most parts of it.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

You can abandon your robots by taking out the roboports off of armor.
Is there a better way to do that, without losing charge of roboports?
