    Severe Conveyor Lag

    I didn't post this to bugs, but it may be. It could be just my system limitations or it could be an optimization issue in the game.

    I have found that when I have a large system with lots of conveyors, I start getting a game freeze/severe lag when I connect a conveyor section to an already existing conveyor grid. I can build conveyors all over and quickly EXCEPT when I connect to an existing (working) conveyor grid. Even the wireframe is no issue to build; it is just a problem when you actually skin it.

    It seems like it takes a long time for the system to update the conveyor grid to include the new section.

    For example, I have a large grid of mining rigs set up and linked to containers and generators. I tried building a group of medium 3d printers and hooking up conveyors to them using the wireframes of the conveyors to line everything up. I can skin all the conveyors instantly except the one section of conveyor that connects to the original conveyor grid. Game freezes for up to 2 minutes while it updates and the time seems to grow with each addition.

    I am using an 8 core cpu, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 980 graphics card. Anyone else experience this?

    It used to be a problem in 2017 when we opened inventories which contained many items (either one container with all the items from old worlds, after wipe, or many connected containers)
    I thought developers optimized the game logic as I saw fewer reports on this topic this year.
    Maybe it is a different problem, as described by you, related to connecting two conveyor networks.

    This is an ongoing issue but it is much improved since earlier this year. It used to be that even opening a large grid of connected containers took a VERY long time (there's still a noticeable delay, but nothing like it used to be.)

    Welding/skinning/completing a printer or container (or a conveyor section that connects them) onto to a large conveyor grid still takes a long, long time. On very large grids, it can take a minute or two, but that's much better than it used to be. Before the improvements, I once waited a full hour for a conveyor section on a very large grid to complete!
