In order to produce some P2 materials, I’ve made a planet with 2x extractors, 6x base industries and 3x advanced industries. The total amount produced by the base factories is theoretically enough to run the 3 advanced factories (Max efficiency is not my goal, so I didn’t go for the factory-planet road).
That was before I realize industries have a buffer : Instead of evenly distributing the resources across the 3 factories, I have 2 of them running, one waiting, and among the 2 running, one is buffering what should go to the 3rd factory. As a result, only 2 factories work at any time, and the buffered resources are just sitting here waiting for the next cycle…
The third (and waiting) factory is not linked to the storage, but to another factory for link efficiency (see picture). I don’t know if it has anything to do with priorities between transmission and buffering, but this is really annoying.
Is there a way to avoid that ? Can’t we disable resource buffer or something ?
