Re: BeamAttackParameter source_offset for more entities

Re: Questions about mipmapped icons (@posila)

Sorry to dig an old thread, I have a additional questions.

Is there a performance or loading time hit from defining or not making mipmaps?

Also, is there a consequence to defining icon_mipmaps = 4 then just not include them in the image?

Re: [bug?] water_reflection doesn't show on resources

water_reflection currently renders only for entities with health (because those have bitmask with some unsed bits which I used to cache a flag marking if reflection is defined or not, as I believe it would add too much performance penalty to query a prototype for this information ... but I am proba...

[bug?] water_reflection doesn't show on resources

In the base game, no resource uses water_reflection, but modded ones could (specifically, offshore oil in Cargo Ships) I can confirm the property is filled, but doesn't apply to the surface. https://i.imgur.com/3awXoo7.png https://i.imgur.com/gLl63TZ.png my code just in case: local deep_oil = table....

Add selection_box_offsets to rail-signal prototype

WHAT Adding/moving selection_box_offsets from RailChainSignal to RailSignalBase WHY There's no reason to have this property in RailChainSignal but not RailSignal. Currently, when you offset the selection box (so the median point is not 0,0), the box rotates for the 4 main directions (N,E,S,W), but ...

WHAT I'm suggesting adding a rotated offset to RotatedSprite and RotatedAnimation , similar to LightDefinition . WHY When doing modded vehicles, there's no way to easily change the rotation point. The only way is to re-render or edit 256 images individually. The shift property applies in an absolut...

Re: New mod version using new hard dependency, how to force it in existing saves?

I was made aware that it might be because the new mod version is not yet on the mod portal, and that when it is updated, the dependency is automatically activated. I apologize for wasting any time.

New mod version using new hard dependency, how to force it in existing saves?

We're updating a fairly big mod, Bio Industries, but there are 2 new hard dependencies. When loading an older save without the new dependencies, the game will simply load the save without them, disabling the mod. Is there a way to force these new dependencies into the save config by way of migration...

Re: Modding - order property in LuaGuiElement

Making index RW would work (index doesn't need to be sequential apparently, according to my tests) but it needs to be unique, so there would be conflict if 2 mods used the same index, or one already sequentially attributed. But if it's a separate property (order) like recipes and items, it eliminate...

[MOD 1.1] ToggleSpeedBoost

I just release a very small mod aimed to be a much more barebone version of "Speed Buttons", with only one button that toggles the speed boost on and off.
