[0.16.51] Mod dependency failures do not give any notice

Post by Reika » Mon Aug 06, 2018 6:49 am

Specifically in the ingame mods menu - if mod A optionally depends on mod B, and some version of mod B, having a too-old version of mod B causes mod A to fail to load. This is fine, but the problem is that it gives no visual indication - or even a message in factorio.log - that mod B failed to load due to a dependency problem; the relevant optional dependency of mod A is marked in orange, not red.

A sample of this is an old version of KSPower I am using (older than 0.2), which causes MoreBobs to fail, yet shows no "missing dependency" error:

Thanks for the report however I can't reproduce what you describe. When I set a dependency as needing a version newer than what's available it shows red - as expected.

Can you please upload a minimal set of mods that reproduces the error?

I should also mention the same happened with my dev version of RubberBelts, which is 0.0.1 in the /mods folder. (See this issue: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=56333&p=332540#p332540 )


This is the reason for the problem I was having and we discussed on Discord a few days ago.

Ok, It had to be an optional dependency that wasn't met to show up wrong.

It's now fixed for 0.17.
