As the subject says, is it possible to make a inv<->inv (1x1) loader?
Already exists in the form of inserters. There are a couple of mods that provide faster inserters, if that is what you are looking for.

Re: Functions within tables (LUA-Question)

Worth mentioning here is probably also this: https://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/Global.html If I understand this correct the metatables in the global tables are gone when you save the game, so without the "re-loading" in the on_load event this wouldn't work at all. Not just metatables. Functions a...

Re: Functions within tables (LUA-Question)

EDIT : Ok, I definitely don't know what I am doing here. Your code works, and mine has some unwanted side-effects. I ended up using your code example. Thanks again... Instead of going down this route, I suggest you turn 'sum' into a normal function with a table argument. Why? You don't have to mana...

Seconded, give us more GUI elements to play with :) Tabbed frames (agui::TabbedFrames) Already possible with what we currently have, but it is a hassle. A proper implementation would make using them so much easier. Maybe the event related to changing the slider fires a lot of times per second when s...

Re: [Poll] 0.17 Quickbar

I do not mind an option that does what you would like it to do, but would not use it. Here is why I like the new QB: Items showing up on/vanishing from the quickbar automatically was annoying. No, I do not want random debris I just picked up to show up on my quickbar. It is no longer an inventory an...

Re: Rail Bridges experiments

So they'd have to come up with a way to hide the train going below the bridge that does look good. Pretty difficult imo with Factorio's engi...

Re: Rail Bridges experiments

Bridges... awesome concept that needs to be in the core game. And now that there is a mod for it there is finally a chance that it might happen. The problem is and always has been: how to render bridges properly in Factorio's 2D engine? For a mod it is perfectly OK to just not care and show trains ...

Increasing CPU for trains: ... - Long trains (are slower than several small) While a single long train might cause more CPU load due to the issues you mention, you have to remember that you can't just replace one long train with a short one. Shorter trains = more trains, which is going to outweigh ...

Re: [kovarex] [0.17.45][Modded GUI] "Enter" key sets selected state for focused LuaGuiElement button

Thanks for having a look. However, this only solves the most common cause of the problem, not the underlying problem itself. It is still possible to focus buttons with the focus() method or the mouse. If you then hit Enter/Return, the button is toggled into the selected state and stays that way. I w...

Re: Dependencies: Are "optional requirements" possible at all?

If you just want to keep the same value you don't have to define it all. That way your recipe will also use the default value and automatically update in case that ever gets changed. If you need the actual value to calculate something from it, there is no way around hard-coding it. local default_ene...
