[0.11.13] Inserter still stuck due to inserter size bonus :)

Post by Cloner »

This was supposed to be fixed but its not. The inserter grabs more items than it can place and blocks the production.

I can't automate rocket defense production. Also some mods that use alternative recepies get same block for basic products.

There is a simple solution: "Allow stack to exceed the max value if forced by inserter"
The next time inserter wont grab any more items of same type because stack is exceeded.

It's a known issue: https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =48&t=2873

As you said there are 2 possible fixes (that I know of):
Allow inserters to exceed the item stack limit when inserting items into assembling machines
Change inserter logic to only grab as many as the assembling machine stack can hold
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

This seems to be happening when trying to automate tanks as well. The assembler will store 1 stack of steel and then the inserter putting steel in gets stuck.

It's a sad workaround, but you can use a separate inserter and requester chest for each of the high count items. So each inserter can still get stuck, but it shouldn't stop production.

Really sad that its moved to "not a bug" section, as things get stuck really often this way with mods where many items are used in recepire :(

The feature might be added in the next release, but it is not a bug, it was working like this from the version 0.0.0

To solve this, the inserter needs to calculate how much can he add at most, it is not so hard as he is checking the assembling machine anyway, but it is way too big change to do it now, when I'm trying to stabilise the release.

Oh thanks, nice to know that this is not ignored :)
Inserter nedds to check not only assemblers but also boxes and wagons.

Actually I made a change for 0.12, that the slots in the assembler can hold even more than the usual stack limit when the recipe needs it. (It makes logical sense as the assembler is quite large building).

This not only solves this problem, but enables us to create recipes with hundreds or thousands items in the requirements for heavy things.

OMG yes, that was the one thing that bugged me the most with Factorio.
I've been using ShadowsMegaModpack and the extra exoskeleton levels had requirements of ~500 of an item, and I could only craft them in hand, but I wanted to automate all of them, so thank you for that. :)
