Using one receptacle with two auto-sweepers


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I am currently struggling getting a conveyor setup to work.

I have 1 receptacle which receives several edibles via conveyors. There are several fridges for the different types of edibles. My left auto-sweeper works just fine and fills the fridges, but my right auto-sweeper idles away.

The food that stays in the receptacle can only be stored in the right fridges.

Is there a trick on setting up a receptacle with 2 sweepers? Is it intended to be a 1:1 ratio between receptacle and sweeper? Can anybody provide a working example?

@martosss If you replace the container with priority 9 with an auto loader, you can send the overflow on to a receptacle in the next room and continue your autosweeper madness indefinitely. :)

Oh, so sweepers first load stuff in the container and then what is left hops on a loader? I still haven't played around with sweepers much, so I'm gathering info, but apart from the priority madness and the tricky range I haven't gathered much.

Btw, is there the way to transfer both egg shells and meat from farm to different destination storages without using 2 loaders? Currently my chain consist of: sweep+Load -> Recept1 ->sweep+fridge+Loader -> Recept2->sweeep+storage (cant attach a screenshot). If there is no way to do so, then I tend to build The GreatSortingHub where all stuff sorts and sends to different consumers. Does anyone have effective examples of smth similar?

don't think so, I tend to use a separate loader with rail for individual items going to different locations.  

It is possible to make a hub with one sweeper and lots of loaders to sort items but it will use lots of power and depending on your computer will be hard on your FPS

I know critter's path processing loads CPU decently, but sweeper too? Surprisingly. Will wait with it at least until EU release.

Can one rail carry items going to different destinations?  I started playing with conveyors this play through, I'm impressed with the time saved with coal from ranches straight to the coal burners and from the farm straight to the grill!
