Critter feeder auto set filters

When setting material filter for a critter feeder it auto add some filters.

Eg. I set 'dirt' for hatchling and hatch. When checking the feeder later filters for other hatch types have been added as well. While that may be deliberate why has it also added a filter for vole pups ?

Furthermore the principle of not showing the auto added filters until you close the selection screen and then reopening it is a bit questionable.


Steps to Reproduce
Build critter feeder Set filters for hatch

Status: Pending

Dirt is eaten by both hatch and shove vole, so if any of those go near the feeder it can interact with it, it's not a bug, is just how it works, critter can eat from them and what's inside determines who can, you can't avoid a vole to eat, but you can avoid to place it there.

The thing is that you can deselect Vole from the list and it will stay deselected. Indicating Voles cant eat from it.

If it actually works as you say then the selection of critters is pointless. It should essentially just be a list of materials for selection. Some other way of indicating what critter is affected by the material selection could then be added.

I think that this doesn't happen for easier readability and ease of use. It's easier to select from a list which you know the selected critter will eat.
