    [MEDIUM PRIORITY] Send resources to connected containers bug

    Game Version: 0.8.9.1
    OS: Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

    Simple Description:
    "Send resources to connected containers" feature does not work, bugged

    Detailed Description:
    Checking/unchecking this feature seems to do nothing. Mined resources (Dirty Water, Ores, etc) does NOT get transferred to connected containers.
    Items manually placed - drag and drop or double click- in machine WILL get transferred to containers, regardless if checked or unchecked.

    Reproducibility: Every time | Tested only in Survival

    How to Reproduce:

    • Build any resource automation machine - Auto Miner or Water Pump
    • Attach Container either directly or via conveyor
    • Can see attached container, but machine will not move mined resources.
    • Double clicking or D&D from machine inventory to container moves items
    • Double clicking or D&D items to machine inventory WILL move them immediately to attached container, regardless of feature enabled or not.


    Any additional information:
    Tested in survival only
    Re-placing, replacing machine did not solve the issue
    Clicking checkbox gives out confusing feedback, have to move mouse away to see effect

    Log file: Save file attached
    DXdiag: PASTEBIN - i dont think it is relevant, but oh well.

    the machine will only transfer if local storage is full -> overflow will only be transferd.
    you can't place anything in a autominer or waterpump, but if you do DK it get transferd to next connected container.
    So not sure if this a bug or intented but undocumentated behavior.

    Ok, i am guessing if "works as intended" then the descriptions should just not say "automatically"

    "Use additional containers if full"
    or
    "Transfer to container if full" would be more descriptive?

    You're right, eriongtk. We'll change the text in the next release.
