I'm sure I'm missing something but couldn't find it on FTB wiki or via google search, or if it's an issue...
Am playing FTB Pyramid Reborn pack which uses MC 1.12.2, Forge 184.108.40.20625, Thermal Expansion 220.127.116.11 and Storage Drawers 1.12.2-5.3.5.
My problem is I have a row of 7 redstone furnaces that push its output (no servo) into the itemduct which then goes to a Drawer Controller. The controller and drawers are in a wall of 7-wide by 3-high, controller in top left, and have a 7x3 set of drawers on the other side, back to back. I have an overflow chest setup about 4 or 5 itemducts past the drawer controller setup. What I'm noticing is that after I smelt a bunch of items, even if they have drawers allocated (with plenty of space) in the drawer stack, many of the items end up in the storage chest for some reason. I can manually take them out of the chest and click them into the controller and they show up fine in the drawers.
I've tried putting the chest between the furnaces and the controller, adding servos to the itemduct furnace connection and set them to farthest-first so it implicitly tries the drawers first, but still see the problem. I've also tried extending the chest itemduct past the drawers to 14 or 15 and still have the problem. At a loss.
Am I overrunning the controller input buffer? It's just a stream of one-by-one items, not like I'm pushing 30 stacks at the same time...maybe 10 items at the same time tops.
Am I missing a setting or something, or should this work?
