Auto-Sweeper Range for Fish-Feeder could be clarified

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: Windows Pending

[Reported as bug, even though it isn't necessarily, but may still need adjusting]
I'm assuming it should work, I could be wrong ofc. And I've been searching through the forums for an answer, but there's nothing new on it, so I figured I'd post it here. And it does seem like Sweepers at some point would've put food into Critter Feeders at least, so by that I figured that Fish-feeders should work as well. Anyways.

My Auto-sweeper wont put food into the Fish-feeder. It does move the algae around to other storage next to it, and they are at lower priority, I added that storage next to it to see if it'd at least move it out of the Storage Receptacle, and it did, but it wont add it to the fish feeder.

While I was answering some obvious questions to myself (see below), I decided to actually Triple check one extra thing with the range:

Yes I've checked it while it's been powered.
Yes, I've double triple checked if it's in range. (doh)
Yes, I've checked that the shipping line is set up properl

Attached pictures. 2nd one shows that there is Algae in that container. I attached a 3rd picture of a Fish-feeder, which has to have it's base tile in range. This isn't entirely obvious, and may need to be indicated somehow, or adjusted.

Thank you for your time.




Steps to Reproduce
Build a fish-feeder "within range" of the Auto-sweeper, but the base plate outside of range.

User Feedback

I'm getting the same problem, I have a regular container for my dupes to fill up and next to it is the fish feeder and it won't transfer the algae. 

>> EDIT >>

After watching a dupe load the feeder I found it is loaded at the base tile.  I assumed the feeder would be loaded from the top like a real feeder would be.  I moved a tile blocking line of sight to the base tile and the auto-sweeper engaged. Yay! 

Looking at the OP's posted image, his right feeder's base tile is not in range of the sweeper.

Not actually a bug but a wrong assumption.
