Re: Remove Expensive Mode

so basically question is about backward compatibility as of today vs the version without expensive mode, especially about prototypes. What I'm getting from the rare and guarded snippets revealed here and there, and this new development around normal/expensive recipes, is that for 1.2 (which is goin...

Re: Documentation Improvement Requests

LuaSurface::create_entity - parameter "source". Context reads "Source entity. Used for beams and highlight-boxes" but this parameter is also valid for projectiles, is passed on to on_script_trigger_effect events for projectiles etc.

Sounds not playing during cutscene but only in arbitrary locations

I have a mod which providers teleporters. Teleportation involves a cutscene sequence which pans from one teleporter to another. Scripted visual and sound effects are triggered at various waypoints along the cutscene, positioned at either the source or destination teleporters. As of fairly recently, ...

Re: Custom scaling of alt-info icons

Support this, but a scale multiplier is also needed for labs - very large labs have very large science pack icons, and you don't even have the option of scale_info_icons. In general it would be nice if things like the entity_info_icon_shift, scale_info_icons etc. were consistently available across a...

Rendering API: selected entity option

All of the methods in the rendering API allow you to specify that the rendered sprites, rectangles etc. are only visible when alt-mode is on (only_in_alt_mode = true). For most entities, all of the extra info shown for all entities on the screen in alt-mode (pipe connection info etc.) is also shown ...

[1.1.70] Render layer / draw order is different for filter icons in different kinds of fluid box

The top row of 1x1 assembling machines in the pic below have a crafting fluid box . The alt-mode fluid box filter icon (set by the recipe) is drawn on top of the alt-mode recipe icon. The bottom row of 1x1 assembling machines have an energy source fluid box . The alt-mode fluid box filter icon (stea...

[1.1.70] Fluidbox filters are ignored by crafting machines (except when they aren't)

I'm referring in this report to crafting machine ingredient/result fluidboxes , not energy source fluidboxes which work correctly as far as I can tell. For reference see this thread which led to the creation of the filter property for fluidboxes. For assembling machines, any fluidbox filter is ignor...

It's far too late to remove it now. It should never have happened, obviously, but that ship has sailed.

I guess i have enough of those issues, i will just get rid of the enable/disable entirely for 1.2 (it will be replaced with internally forcing limit to 0). There will be no longer "skip schedule record" behavior.
Please reconsider.

Alternatively you can use a label but set single_line to false and set a maximal_width.

[Genhis] [1.1.69] Fluid-burning generators ignore fluid emissions multiplier

Entity type generator can be set up to burn fluid fuels ( burns_fluid = true ) and only burn whatever is required to reach maximum energy output ( scale_fluid_usage = true ) rather than basing energy output on temperature. Fluids with an emissions_multiplier , however, don't seem to affect the outgo...

Re: I'm making a NoTarget mod, but I have a problem with projectiles

You need to change the force-condition property of the projectiles. "not-same" works well for me if you want bullets to "miss" all entities owned by the same force as the shooter, but YMMV.

Re: Remember last location for GUIs

I am just looking to see if anyone has seen mods that will simply remember where GUI Windows were last and keep them there when they are reopened.

Re: script.once_at_tick as a specialized offspring of script.on_nth_tick

I wanted this so badly that I wrote a version of it myself. My use case was to "schedule" things for N ticks in the future where N was typically not long, i.e. typically 10 to 120 ticks in the future - but in theory a lot of of them could be scheduled at once. The way I got happy with it p...

You don't want to use the full on_animation sheet because those have the blue glow effects built in. You ...

Re: altering a single layer of animation

You are using the full 33 frames of the original lab animation, in which the glowing effects are "baked in" and coloured blue (see Factorio/data/base/graphics/entity/lab/hr-lab.png). On top of that you are using a white draw_as_light layer. Draw_as_light is multiplicative, and blue multipl...
