Any way to stop this kickback motion when entering conveyor

Any way to stop this kickback motion when entering a conveyor?

I can't find a parameter that fixes this in the conveyor, entry transfer or transporter parameters.

You could unload to a Queue to control the placement rather than unloading directly to the Entry Transfer.

Thanks Phil. That works. But I think it could be more "automatically positionned" as I indicated above either by a parameter in the EntryTransfer to specify the "offset load position" or maybe if we could drag the EntryTransfer inside the conveyor instead of it being on the end like it is.

@Patrick Cloutier If you will use networknode and set offset travel to 'off', Kickback visual is almost disappeared.

Tne networknode should be enough far from the conveyor entrytransfer.

Hi David. It works but it's an unnecessary complex way for the user to fix a very simple thing. And what if I use AStar instead of Network Nodes and have 100 conveyors like that.

I think it should be a parameter in the EntryTransfer to specify the "offset load position" or maybe if we could drag the EntryTransfer inside the conveyor instead of it being on the edge like it is.

I thought I had missed something but if not, I will post this as an idea.

Thanks,
