Undergroung belt takes stuff from sides.

Not sure if it matters, but desided to report.
This could be used as "filter" because it only takes left lane in.

I'm just looking at it, and thinking, is it a bug or a feature? I'm not sure :)

Until you said that I was leaning towards "hidden feature" :lol:

Hey, I just noticed something :)
You have different inserters there, what is it? :)

You got sharp eyes. Its a basic inserter with new paint. The middle joint needs bit tuning. :)

Lol, quite a unique discovery! We should keep this "bug" at least till there is some way how to split a half of the belt. Is there some way how you can send the other half somewhere else? Maybe you could use slow inserters and have it on a very fast belt running, so the inserters would not be able to take it from the other fast running side.

Let's call it a feature (though unintended) :) Moved topic to Not a bug section.

Yay.. I really wanted to be able to block off one side of the belt.
It makes sense physically, I also say "feature".
Thanks :)
