[0.12.0] inserters picking up items from splitters

Post by Sekkmer »

If a inserter try to pickup a item from the back of a splitter it's just can't do that from every positoon:

The right one work fine but the left just cant work.

I am not tested all of the 4 direction I just found this one randomly.

I can confirm this, here are some more cases.
SCREENSHOTS

I experimented a little bit and I believe this is the issue:
If the splitter's input is on the right it works, if it's on the left it doesn't. If it is on both it also works.

These are more conclusions based on observation:
  • Some splitters work all around, some splitters not at all.
  • Doesn't matter what type of belt or inserter is used.
  • Doesn't matter if the items are on either side of the belt or both.
  • Doesn't matter if the belt continues after the splitter.

Hehe... Looks like you're left: The lower line is not working right. :P

Edit: The behavior for underground belts also changed.

Here an example with inserting into a underground belt. This worked in 0.11. (In 0.10 and previous it doesn't! Would be nice to have some consistency here)

I'm guessing here but I could imagine the way splitters work is, that they have a sort of primary input and a secondary one, which may be switched under certain circumstances. Definitely weird though. I'll try rebuilding your setup later, see if it behaves the same.

What's wierder is this:

It seems to be very inconsistent (I'm in Factorio 0.12.0). I shifted them over one to the left two and the side that previously didn't work started working, and the sided the did work stopped.
