Hello over there. I have a massive screw production ongoing around Tier 3~4. The Assemblers gulp those away like cookies. The screw input for the Assembler is maxed, however those will have a downtime of 3 seconds, sometimes up to 6 seconds. I am not sure if this is intended. Converyor Belt MK.2 are used.
While those burn screws away, Iron Rods and Iron Plates are stucked and could be used anywhere else.
This output/input issue about screws on Assemblers is at a rate of 1:1, so I cannot even save some screws up in containers which are between Assemblers and Screw Constructors. I have to seperate an own Screw Constructor for its own just to keep some screws saved. Of course.
8 Screws Constructors don't seem to fit with 4 Assemblers, at least it feels like that. Lets say I build 3 Screws Constructors for an Assembler, this won't change anything since the Conveyor Belts cannot afford more in time. Could change with Belt MK.3, but this will make it grindy to reach and even to construct Steel.
My suggestion is to lower the rate of screws the Assemblers are consuming by 8~9% or by 2 Screw units. Or an Screw/Assembler overhaul since screws are nearly burned away. It is nice to see everything fluiding, but this kinda makes Screws useless.
The production of Rotors, Modular Frames as well as Reinforced Iron Plates is low due to that reason.
P.s.: Screw these Screws xD
