Super storage unit

Recommended Posts

So with the latest update introducing Large Storage Silos, I think it's now possible to make superstorage on a single Extra Large Platform C - With the right stuff, it can hold 1152 Tier 1 items.
No, I'm not joking.

It uses an Extra Large Platform C with 4 Large Storage Silo Bs, each with 12 Medium Storage Silos.

If you're interested in the maths to check on it... get outta here you frickin nerd

(I haven't actually tried any of this yet, this is all in theory, but nonetheless sensible)

The only problem with the new storage units is that they don't work with machinery - I think it's because it extends the owner hierarchy another level, i.e. platform holds a silo, silo holds resources, and transfers any resources attached to the silo to the machine, when needed. Now we have platform which holds a large silo, a large silo which holds a silo, and a silo which holds resources, and the resources will not then be used by machines on the same platform.

but yes..... hella storage.

I disagree with the owner hierarchy making the Large Storage Silos not work with machinery, when the Large Storage is in the same position and works with machinery just fine. Platform holds a Large Storage, Large Storage holds a Medium Storage Silo, Medium Storage Silo holds the resources, and transfers any resources attached to the silo to the machine when needed.

I use an Extra Large Platform C with a Smelting Furnace, Soil Centrifuge, Chemistry Lab, and a Large Storage with 4 Medium Storage Silos full of resources. All of the machinery transfer resources from the Medium Storage Silos. Same thing with a Large Storage with Medium Storage Silos on a Large Rover with a drill. When using the drill, Canisters on the Medium Storage Silos on the Large Storage fill up with soil and any harvested resources transfer to the silos as well. 

Even forgetting the Medium Storage Silos entirely, just having the resources on the Large Storage itself, they transfer to machinery. Having the resources just on the Large Storage Silos, they do not transfer.

I was a bit bummed when I just tried swapping out the Large Storage with the Large Storage Silo B on my platform and Large Rover setups, and not having the resources transfer like they were with the Large Storage. It seems Large Storage Silos were not made with the ability to transfer resources at all.

You're right, I'd forgotten about the large storage with medium storage combo, so yes, it *should* be possible. maybe it's just a bug?

It's definitely just a bug.  Hopefully, we'll see it get patched soon.
