Trying to build balance automation results in no balance at all
As seen in the attached photo, I tried to build a balanced automation. Two filters with seeds sent out to the two planters. Instead of balance I end up with all seeds just going to one side.
When the machine has generated seeds those two filter inserters should pull seeds one side then the other then the other and so on.
What you have here wouldn't work in any automation game...Unless, the speed of the machine was so great that both inserters are non-stop busy. Inserters do not communicate with each other, nor should they. This is not how you should balance. You should have both going onto a belt and splitting the belt...this is what splitters are made for. You can't expect independent inserts to somehow work in a rotation, that doesn't even make sense.
