spaghetti problem....

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I probably have the solution under my nose, but have not tried the right connexion to solve this problem.

Water arrives from the left and I'd like the other source from right (pump) to merge only if pipes empty.

So that's a simple filler, a bridge should let the water pass, if the pipes are empty.

But no, a bridge gets priority.... and the output tile of it is not empty.

How to solve this?

The bridge will only add from that source line if there is room when you put that bridge right on the destination line. Like filling a cooling loop. 

Like in that example gas pipe image the oxygen keeps flowing not letting the polluted oxygen in.

Or use two bridges.

Input input output output

When in series like that, the inner bridge has priority and the outer is blocked (used as the filler)

Thats the cleanest way that i'd do it ;) If you need to juggle more priority than that, you can bridge the right feed into the line in different ways providing it enters the line after the left feeds output.

Thanks, I'll try your solutions !

So that was not obvious after all. A sort of filler & splitter.
