[raiguard] Installed dependent mods are refetched on update

Post by Pi-C »

Yesterday, I updated Nullius using the in-game mod manager. The update pulled in "Angel's Smelting" (along with its dependency "Angel's Petrochemical Processing") and "Bob's Logistics mod". Now there was another update to "Nullius", and I noticed that these dependencies were downloaded again although they were already at the latest version:

This seems like a waste of bandwidth, and as the game already knows which mods are available on my computer, I guess it should be possible to compare the version numbers before downloading dependent mods. As a side note: "Nullius" also has a hard dependency on "Alien Biomes". However, the game did not try to update that mod (required version: >=0.6.5, available version: 0.6.8). While this is the behavior I'd expect, it seems inconsistent in regard to what's happening with the other dependent mods.
A good mod deserves a good changelog. Here's a tutorial (WIP) about Factorio's way too strict changelog syntax!

Could you please post a list of all of the mods in your mods folder? Including duplicate versions, etc.

Sure, I've attached the list!

I'm sorry that it is quite long. The list includes some private mods, unpublished WIP versions of my own mods, private updates to mods published by others, and possibly even some mods that don't work with Factorio 1.1. As I'm working on several mods, I often download new mods to check for compability issues, that's why there are so many. :-)
