Quote from: jamespetts on March 13, 2019, 01:19:47 AMThat issue seems to be that the storage capacity of consumer industries is too high, which, coupled with a system in which industries demand goods until their storage is full

Quote from: jamespetts on March 13, 2019, 12:08:58 PMAre you able to upload a saved game in which these demand spikes can reliably be reproduced so as to assist me in testing for the causes of this and devising remedies?
Quote from: jamespetts on June 05, 2019, 12:55:35 AMThe existing algorithm (which still operates when just_in_time = 1) will cause the consumer industry to demand enough goods to fill its input storage and then only demand as much as it needs to fulfil its consumer's estimated demand, taking into account transport lead time.The modified algorithm, with just_in_time = 2, will demand only enough goods to satisfy estimated consumer demand without running out of stock, taking into account the lead time for the goods, save that the consumer industry will not demand so many goods that the input storage is likely to overflow at any point (taking into account future estimated demand).With just_in_time = 3, the industries behave in the same way as with just_in_time = 2, save that the consumer industry's input storage size is ignored.
Quote from: Jando on March 13, 2019, 11:59:26 AMI do not believe that storage capacity of consumers has anything to do with the issue, instead storage capacity of industries seems to have no effect.

Quote from: jamespetts on June 24, 2019, 11:25:09 PMThank you for spotting the issue with the zero demand rounding error - I have pushed what I believe to be a fix to this. I should be grateful if you could re-test with to-morrow's nightly build.
