Coal generators not working.

  • Known Issue

CL #208689

I've noticed during two different games that coal generators seem to be broken now. After placing generator and connecting power, dupes do not load coal at all. Tried changing priority but no difference. When checking building info, under Contents it displays "Empty" and the green graphical bar that shows fuel level is empty. There is no red alert message on the info screen about the generator being out of fuel, nor is there a message saying "Awaiting delivery of coal". Moving the generator to a different location doesn't make a difference.

Steps to Reproduce
Built coal generator, built electrical wires to connect.

Status: Known Issue

We are aware of this issue and have it logged internally but either we do not have a fix ready yet or we are not planning on addressing the issue in the immediate future.

hello, it seems to be an issue with power loss on the wire endings and turning off buildings breaks the flowing of electricity, try to place a battery right next to coal generator and make a loop from wires rather than having coal generator at the end of line. basically have wires around sections connecting back to starting point. also emits co2 so check if it has max gas pressure.

Also noticed that reloading the game seems to fix it. Might be related to the issue I've seen with setting priorities, where suddenly the dupes don't respond correctly to different priorities.
