[Suggestion] When crafting table is full, crafting should pause
Accidentally had about 80 or so items spit out into the world because a table was full, it would be a QOL improvement if the table just stopped and waited for space to be made rather than causing me to now pick up 80 individual items that have been thrown all over the place.

The crafting bench storage was full and a craft required resources from my inventory.
Tried to craft a wood cupboard which just needed iron ingots from my inventory the ingots were removed but the craft did not start.
I've tried twice again and it can be replicated.
In my case it did show that it was crafting, but item did not appear in the end. Expected it to drop on the ground as it does when you craft from inventory when full.
Mine simply sent the newly created item to oblivion (nothing came out of the crafting bench, item didn't get into my inventory... it just disappeared.) When you craft things (like a campfire, which doesn't require any "machine") with a full inventory, it drops near you. For crafting bench and co I think a warning "Device inventory is full. Please empty an inventory slot, before proceding" and not allowing to craft until then might be a good choice (or having the item be place in your inventory, if it isn't full, or the newly crafted item to drop down on the floor)
Yes this is very annoying and often those items disappear when you are not there.

Still a problem from the first weekend, should only need a check to see if there is space in crafting station before taking resources or queuing craft.
I disagree, If u set it up to craft, you have to take care. Very easy just place to craft all things to max and wait stops production automatically. It just occurs because you do not take a look on your storage capacity.
Mortar and Pestle, crafted 27 carbon paste and it consumed 74 Aluminum ingots. 1 Carbon Paste requires 1 Aluminum ingot according to the recipe.

"Full craft bench storage = lost resources and no crafted item." (suggested by sean dempsey on 2021-08-29), including upvotes (7) and comments (3), was merged into this suggestion.
In my case it wasn't that the items were crafted and spat outside of the inventory. They were never crafted but it still took the resources.
Seems like the crafting logic is counting items and removing them before checking if the items can be crafted. If the items cannot be crafted it has already removed the items.

There is some flawed logic in the crafting system.

Thanks @Sean. Once merged we can't change it, but we tend to keep similar issues together. We're well aware of both issues and are working on them, so no worries! Thanks!
yeh i can honestly admit making refined wood filled my 4x4 base full enough to require external chests just so that you could get in the building laggy as fk luckly no storm or this would have been a lot worse with boxes breaking everywhere.
