[0.10.2][kovarex] Bots don't transfer from active providers

Post by erikem » Sat Jun 28, 2014 8:44 am

In my save file (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/164 ... ect_03.zip) I have achieved a situation when I have a bunch of full active provider chests, loads of empty storage chests and ~3k idle logistic bots:
Image
Save description:
1. Player has a lot of full active provider chests south of him (visible on the screenshot)
2. Player has a lot of empty storage chests north of him (past smelting area, not visible on the screenshot)
3. 3k+ are reported idle by logistic network. Chests from 1 and 2 belong to this exact logistic network
4. Both provider and storage areas have plenty of roboports installed for charging needs

How did I achieve this? I can't give steps to reproduce but what happened is that I have launched train trasnportation and trains have started filling active provider chests. At first it was ok and chests were emptied immediately but over the time bots started ignoring some of them. The more time passed the more of them got ignored.

I have found a manual fix for this as a temporary solution. In order to "restart" bots I have changed all active providers to passive ones and back. After that all of my bots (0 reported as idle) started transporting goods from active providers to storages.

Have you tried replacing them with (for example) requester chests, and then back to providers? My bots were not taking from my storage chests, only from passive providers, and it wasn't until I replaced all chests (storage and provider), that it started to work as advertized.

I've done multiple rounds of replacing these chests with passive provider or requesters. It partially solves the immediate issue but after some time (quite a short period I must say) the problem comes back.

Still encountering this in 0.10.3
Keep having to swap out active->passive->active to make the bots recognize the chests again.

Hello, could you please provide the savegame (on dropbox or similar), so I can study the problem?

Edit: Sorry found it :)

Yes, you were correct, there was slight inconsistency in our code that caused the provider chest to be categorised as empty and ignored.

The problem is now fixed for 0.10.4 version
