[Solved] why inserter only input 2 pieces inside thresher and stop, while it can can hold more
i can put 500 pieces inside thresher or assembler but when using an inserter it only put 2 pieces inside and wait, why not keep inputting till its full
I know that was meant for me. and Yeah I didn't understand,
And Without you literally showing me what you mean, I still don't.
However, You explained enough for me to get the gist of what you are saying.
I still fail to see how a machine that takes in enough for 2 more builds and stop, could mess up the production line.
Wait, I gotta be sure....
You know it's not just 2 items, but 2 times the amount items need to make that thing.
Like biobricks, is 25 plant matter, 50 Limestone, so the inserters are going to put in up to 50 PM/100 LS into machine and then stop while the assembler is already making 1 biobrick
Putting a full stack of 500 into a machine isn't making it faster, it's just tying up resources that could be used elsewhere.
Anyway, you know what you are working with now, and you can build around it.
Sigh, this again. This CANNOT possibly hold back production. If your input (inserters) cannot re-fill 2x times the resources for the recipe in the time it takes for the machine to make one, then your machine would never reach a full stack anyway. 2x recipe amount is plenty and makes the most sense. If you're worried about the production line from your input backing up, I would say 1. Who cares, it's making at least enough to feed your destination anyway, and 2. You can always just put a chest for storage in-between the two lines, so your input source can continue making as much as it wants, regardless of how much the designation line is pulling. I have no idea why this keeps coming up, Factorio works the same way. There's literally no reason to have a machine filled to max stack size.
