Inexplicably idle inserters ("waiting for

Post by bortsampson » Sat Jun 01, 2019 1:28 pm

Playing 0.17.45 and the **only** mod is Bottleneck.

- Inserters are holding items (copper plates) above empty splitters/belts with the text "waiting for space in destination".

- Deconstructing and replacing the inserter "fixes" the problem (they start outputting items again).

[Waiting for space?](https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ ... 2BBD2C407/)

[Working normally after replacing](https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ ... CDD962BE7/) (You can see the bottom left corner inserter is also stopped for the same behaviour)

Save file is attached - you'll start beside a small copper train unloading station, where there are 3 inserters "stuck" holding items over empty belts.

Meant to add - copy/pasting the settings (even though there are none) using shift+right and shift+left click also "reactivates" them.

I'm afraid without a way to reproduce the issue it's not possible to find out how the inserters got into that state.

Can't it be inserter incorrectly picking dropoff target due to change in 0.17.44 and being stuck in that state even after the fix?

As far as I analyzed, it should not be a problem, but there's a small chance that's what happened.
