The slot has been upgraded with Extra Robots I, Predictive Stock Control, Heated Wing Mirrors, and Folding Wing Mirrors.
The stockpile has 8(+0) Heated and Folding Wing Mirrors in it, but is also showing 0(+1) paint, specifically undercoat it looks like. My painting operation is nearby but this isn’t it.
I watched it for a while and suddenly, instead of asking for paint, it was asking for +1 rubber.
I am making parts (for example tires) onsite, but nowhere near here.
All models of my cars use heated folding wing mirrors.
I ripped out the slot and replace it and the problem stopped. Only 8 of the 16 stockpile slots will be filled with heated folding wing mirrors. Every once in a while some normal side mirrors show up and then disappear, but I suspect this is WAD.
I’ve been watching this and it’s kind of driving me crazy.
The slot has a stockpile immediately adjacent to it.
None of my models require anything except heated folding wing mirrors.
The slot never has fewer than 6 of them in it, because immediately after using 2 of them, 2 more come from the adjacent stockpile.
And yet the slot will sometimes flash “insufficient materials” and this shows up in the slot’s pie chart at 3%.
There is this bizarre Schrodinger thing going on though, because if I click on the slot and watch stuff going on, this never happens, but if I close the slot’s window it immediately happens. The warning flashes immediately after a car leaves the slot.
Hi, the schrodingers thing suggests to me a possible cause. I shall investigate. the game prioritizes updating a slot if you click on its window, so I assume that then clears it, but I’ll have to investigate how it could ever happen. TBH this is an old bug which I was 95% sure I fixed.
Is there a chance that if it happens again, you could send me the files in
\my documents\my games\production line\debug
to cliff AT positech dot co dot uk.
Sending me a save game would also help (to the same address) and any custom map you are using. It also helps to link to this thread so I know who contacted me.
That just all sounds completely bizarre!
