[0.10.9] Deconstructing inserter holding item deletes item

Post by Rseding91 » Tue Sep 02, 2014 1:41 am

As the title says: deconstructing an inserter that is holding item(s) deletes the item(s).

Steps to reproduce:
  • Place an inserter
  • Drop 2 items for the inserter to move
  • Once the inserter is holding the item over the first item deconstruct it
Note how the held item vanishes: it neither ends up where the robot stores the inserter or where the inserter was holding it.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

I can confirm this one. Mining the inserter puts the item being held into your inventory but having robots deconstruct it causes the item to disappear from the game. I think the best way to fix it would be to disable the inserter (to prevent the inserter from grabbing another item which then has to be removed) and have one bot take the item and another take the inserter itself. This behavior would be like what currently happens when you order a chest deconstructed.
