Re: Webassembly instead of/alongside lua?

Having WebAssembly alongside Lua would also take a lot of work for the developers, and the two are very different internally. (One is a RAM-based bytecode meant to be compiled into machine code and made for whole applications, the other is a garbage-collected language meant to be interpreted and ma...

Webassembly instead of/alongside lua?

Hi So just wondering, how complicated would be to add support for webassembly mods alongside lua mods? If this is too much for this game, would you consider something as webassembly instead of lua, in a future game similar to factorio (if you'd make one?) Lua is nice for having sandboxed environment...

Re: make assembly machines wireable

If I want an assembling machine stop, I wire the output inserter and deactivate it on the relevant condition. Output is immediately stopped. Or if it is a very expensive product it creates, one of the input inserters. In this case, current buffers are emptied, then production stops. Or I wire both....

Re: [1.1.72][Lua] corrupt defines.circuit_connector_id

Sure, that was clear from the first reply, that I did do a wrong assumption, about those defines, given they are grouped under a single group called circuit_connector_id here . So, in order for someone else to not fall in same pitfall as me, imho would be nice to have this explicitly stated rather t...

Re: lua as dll

So basically you're saying that most of lua functions (C functions from lua lib) are inlined to avoid function call right?

Btw, I obviously meant shared library, which dll is in windows.

Re: On pre save request

ok, at the moment I don't think I have an enough strong case for adding pre_save (I just don't try saving anymore) given the problems you've mentioned, but if there will be, I'll post it here. In regards to transferring lua state, I didn't imply it to be used for saving files too (which would cause ...

Re: [lua][feature] User defined data attached to lua entity

Hi, thx for info, To clarify, does this mean that LuaEntity isn't a direct mapping to internal representation of said object, and upon querying a field or other, they might pull data from different objects in the engine? In regards for multiple mods, indeed it would be a nightmare if implemented at ...

Re: On pre save request

Well the thing with global table is that you have to do this restoration manually, which complicates things if you for example use typescript to lua compiler, as they add some logic to compiled ts classes to lua to make their behavior compatible, and basically would require you to mess with their ru...

On pre save request

Hi team, I've noticed there is no pre_save event in factorio. Could it be added into the api? This prevents any proper saving of information by a mod when player is trying to save. If you have some info that is not yet saved in save table (forgot how it is called), then there is a chance that upon s...

Re: [lua][feature] User defined data attached to lua entity

Thanks for help, I wasn't sure if modding interface requests forum was appropriate, since it felt more like requests down to specific api enhancements and not more general topics. If someone could move them to modding interface requests, that would be appreciated. Now onto thread you've shared. This...

lua as dll

Hi, So I've been looking over bin folder of Factorio, and noticed that there isn't any lua dll present there, meaning that most probably it was statically linked into executable. I'm just wondering, would it be possible to have a Factorio version that uses lua as a dll, or is there one already? (I'm...

[lua][feature] User defined data attached to lua entity

Hi, Just wondering is it possible to add capability to attach mod data to the lua entity itself? i.e. given a lua entity 'a': a.user_data = 'my fancy data' print a.user_data // will print 'my fancy data' Such functionality will allow storing arbitrary information on entity itself and will eliminate ...

Re: [1.1.72][Lua] corrupt defines.circuit_connector_id

I think you've misunderstood last reply. I didn't suggest to modify engine, but rather to just document those defines on api page mentioning this particular behavior you've explained in this thread, i.e. that they aren't necessarily unique, and actually they need another field to be checked for them...

Re: [1.1.72][Lua] corrupt defines.circuit_connector_id

Thx for clarification, This isn't quite clear from the api, and you'd expect to be able to differentiate which circuit id you're using from the list defined here: https://lua-api.factorio.com/next/defines.html#defines.circuit_connector_id I.e. circuit_connection_id.accumulator != circuit_connection_...

Hi team, and everyone, So I've been working on a pet mod for myself, which tries to employ circuit networks to do discovery of entities that should interact between themselves.
