[0.16.8] Requester chest do not request stuff ...

Post by Godmave » Fri Dec 29, 2017 8:56 pm

... from provider chests.

Only after toggeling the checkbox "Request from buffer chests" they get stuff again from red chests.

I noticed the same, but it looks random, for example the requester chests for my labs refuse to request High Tech Science Packs, but all other packs are requested fine..

Bots would not unload for red, purple nor yellow chests. It seems to be more a problem of the blue chest, I could even copy settings from one (non-functional) blue chest to another non-functional one to get it to work (request the items) so I could just copy the settings to all blue chests there and get it all working again...

I came across the same issue today, after updating to 16.8
Saw all my bot based iron smelting crash down. Soon discovered none of the requesters were receiving deliveries, although plenty of content in the passive providers and logistics bots to carry these. The save attached should demonstrate the behaviour. On the player's right, is the "fixed" situation: checked 'request from buffer chest' on all requesters. On the left (copper) the change didn't happen. So most likely these will run out soon as well.
Could there be an issue with interpreting this setting on requesters built during earlier versions?

That workaround doesn't work for me, I don't get any requester chest getting items from buffer chests.
Even newly build buffer + requester doesn't work.

I would like to have a save from 0.16.7 or earlier. It is probably a migration bug.

My buffer chests are just acting like storage chests, not taking from passive provider only active and taking everything, even if it isn't requesting it.

You can see it in the chest over by the large uranium to the right of the bus that asks for acid. Even tried it with removing the mods and same problem.

I've uploaded my save of 16.7 earlier today here. It concerns the smelting areas marked on the map as "Iron Smelting" and "Copper Smelting".

After replacing the passive provider (placed before the upgrade) it started working, though the buffer is still acting like a storage chest in terms of taking things from active providers when not requesting them.

Edit:
After your "holy crap you guys are fast" version, it is working properly. Though I can't save without the game hanging...

I ran into the same issue with requester chests. Toggling the buffer chest option seemed to fix it, but isn't copied by the settings-copy.

I tried altering my blueprint for those entities, but placing it over my current chests to fix it caused the game to crash.

Is there any way to reproduce any of these in a simple way? When I try it on a small map everything works as intended, when I load 0.16.7 save, it works as intended.

I almost feel like you are trying to trick me :)
Map called 0.16.7, but it is actually 0.16.8

It seems that just putting some stuff in the requester chest manually also fixes the problem.

In attachment a save from 0.16.7 and then in 0.16.9, both exhibit the problem.
In original save, follow the concrete path due left until the end, 2nd train will bring copper shortly
