Did some testing with guys in discord to confirm, they had the same results

These setups do not function



These work



Oddly enough, the setup in the first image was initially working and then just stopped on its own at 4/25 progress. Someone in Discord tried it and theirs stopped at 2/25. Very strange indeed

This is the original shot I took which shows the 4/25


Let me know if any other details would help you!

Do you notice the triangle depicting the input onto the refinery? idk if it means anything but it's angled on the last screenshot. i noticed that when i was testing it. Though, a smaller one was not angled and still didn't work, so idk.

I think this bug happens because once you begin crafting, the refinery is unable to request ores directly from the resource receiver. that's why it "started out working and then stopped" technically speaking, it didn't. :p

Yeah, turns out thats the answer. I should have thought of it, just with such a small setup it didnt cross my mind that it could actually be running 2 different jobs at once heh. That totally makes sense though.

I don't know if I should leave this up or not since it isn't exactly a bug. Will change title for now

Interesting Testing methodologies as most of these bases should work based on the pictures with possibly the exception of the one featuring the single GSO conveyor belt as either a Filter conveyor or two GSO flat conveyors should be required to transfer the block. Perhaps the use of a Silo will aid in the consistent crafting of these blocks?

Additionally, This thread also seems synergistic with my thread within which the new Condensed Resource Blocks are also mentioned.

The resource 'call' mechanism only seems to work with silos and conveyors.

It seems to be expecting a chain of conveyors with other stuff attached.
As we discovered in the crafting challenge.

At least with the Pacemaker block, we don't have to be quite so careful now.

Cant confirm that. I build something similar, and it worked. Silo next to factory, and no conveyor in between.
But: If you place them on the ground, the stop working. If you place them on a fixed anchor, the same setup works fine.

I was checking on this to add information to my "Complete Crafting Guide".

I found that you can fabricate directly from collectors and receivers. Refineries will pull resources directly from collectors and receivers too, although obviously not push them back on. And not pull them via conveyors, during auto-crafting.


I thought maybe the pictures had something about fabricators in... But of course, without being able to see the images in the top post, any more, I can't be certain exactly what it was that didn't work previously...
