Re: Entity Modification

well you should already know the result since you're duplicating recipes to produce something with different ore types, the ingredients of course will be a table of ore_name plus whatever other ingredients the recipe would use and the name would probably be something like string.format('%s-oxigen-%s...

Re: How Do I Delete a Recipe or Item From Vanilla?

Now I am trying to figure out how to reduce the amount of items in a recipe Well, I haven't messed with Factorio in a long time now but, it should just be a lua table. So data.raw["recipe"]["high-tech-science-pack"].ingredients is the table { {"battery", 1}, -- index 1 {"processing-unit", 3}, -- in...

Re: How to best delete an autoplace-control entry?

Thank you for this and the lua-noob answers. no problem, everyone learns over time I'm now using "for i,v in pairs" to walk tables, and I can see the data much more clearly. Indeed, though unless you are doing something to everything/most, or take extra measures to break out of the loop when you're...

Re: using "OR" in recipes not "AND"

which can create confusion, and/or beats the main purpose of the mod. Indeed. What could also be done is to simulate a crafter 'manually' by using a regular container and Lua code. You could even have a gui to select the recipes, it's alot more work but the only 'solution' that allows for this with...

Re: [answered] Where does lua's print function output go?

Flux Faraday's is the best solution, but if you just want something quick and dirty I often use error(serpent.block(something)) to make Factorio show me the value of something in an error dialog :)

Re: How to best delete an autoplace-control entry?

The issue is that you only delete the autoplace control, but the entity is still trying to reference that in it's autoplace definition. The second method fails because it only works for numeric indexes (it's used to shift the other entries up and prevent a sparse table, since next/ipairs will stop a...

Re: Make a fuel only work in one type of generator

not as far as I'm aware. Theoretically you could make a second item without the fuel value and have players craft it, then swap it out using Lua with the one that has a fuel value later. However, since non-fuel items won't go in a fuel slot players would have to use a chest and an inserter and the L...

Re: "Raw wood cannot be smelted", even though there is a rec

It's because the game only checks items with a fuel value to see if they can be used as fuel, not if it is part of a recipe. I think this is being worked on, but it has been a known issue for quite some time. I'm fairly certain you could use a crafting recipe (or use a dedicated category for some sp...

Re: using "OR" in recipes not "AND"

It's not currently possible to do so in that manner, but you can actually have separate recipes that produce the same thing with different ingredients. Since the prototypes are written in a Lua file you can actually write a function to create those separate recipes, perhaps something like so (note I...

Re: [MOD 0.11.x] Landfill (2.1.2)

My bug is probably something super simple yep, the name does need to be changed to name_version format (both specified in the info.json file) and in one of the 11.x version (.6 I think) they changed frame_width and frame_height in animations to just width and height (for consistency with sprite def...

Re: Steam Engines Power output is capped

The generator's buffer size is hard coded in C++ based on the max temp of water, not entirely sure why. A 'workaround' of sorts would be to create a duplicate of water with a different name, change offshore-pumps give the duplicate and change the max temp of the original water to some large value. T...

Re: Custom Entities

Sure, that's already supported by Factorio. You'd just make a new crafting category and have the new 'centrifuge' and it's recipes use it
As for things that aren't supported by Factorio, it's usually possible with some understanding of Lua and Factorio's modding API.
