Problems With Drones Unloading Plorts From Silos

Postby AngelNightwing » Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:49 pm

My drones don't unload plorts from silos at the speed I have seen in the past. Instead of taking them out in bulk like they will do for me from plort collectors, they take the plorts out one by one, making it take them hours in-game to even get 50 out. This is a problem for when I'm trying to sell off all my plorts in one day when the prices are at their highest. So far to try and fix it I have tried:
Resetting the drones
Refilling their water tanks
Shooting the drones themselves with water
Removing and replacing the drones
Removing and replacing the market links they are set to send to
None of it has worked. I have no idea if anyone else has had this problem as its a first time for me and I haven't seen anyone else posting anything about it. If anyone knows about this and how to fix it, please tell me as it is ruining the automation part of the game for me.

I don't know about you, but for me, it has never sucked up in bulk. Unless you are using mods, I'm pretty sure this doesn't happen. Not entirely sure, though.
If you think I am a tabby slime,
You are wrong.
I was eaten by one.

I can't get out of here...

Although, if I take out enough newbucks, I can fill this Tabby and turn it to a Lucky.

When I first unlocked them they did it in bulk. I can remember setting them all to sell from silos earlier in my playthrough and they did it in bulk.

Question. Do any of your silo slots have less than 50 items?

The entire silo itself, no. Some slots in it, yes. I don’t think those slots were selected, however that wasn’t a problem in the past.

there were reported cases where the extraction from silos was equal to the smallest value between the drone's open storage and every individual slot of the silo. ie, if 1 slot was at 250, another at 5 and then drones were at 50 open spots capacity, they would only take 5 at a time regardless of if taking from the 250 or not.

The silos are almost completely full and the lowest slot is at least 200. I’m not 100% sure of this as of right now and I won’t be able to check until tomorrow, but this information does seem like it could help me out a lot!

This fixed it!!! The silos did have some slots with only 1 in them, after removing those they went back to normal! Thank you so much!!!!
