[Idea] Biters only attacking specific things.

I play on a server where we try and play a slightly different way every time, and from a conversation, I was wondering if for example "Biters only went to attack Miners and/or just wanted to go make nests on/near ore patches for <reasons>". If for example, Biters just went nuts on ore fiel...

Is it possible to work on graphics in real time?

I know this is probably a stupid question, but I thought I'd ask simply because back in the days I used to use a program called TexMod (https://www.moddb.com/downloads/texmod4) to customize some graphics in games in order to see a little better. Because my eyesight is what it is, I have a folder ful...

Re: Please remove the Spidertron screen wobble

I have a problem with it as well as I seem to be more sensitive to movement then most people. Having the entire viewscreen "jiggle around" is headache inducing. I keep jumping out of the spider to do things because I can't handle the time it takes to "come to a complete wobble stop&qu...

remote "Presence" building.

Mainly I am asking if this is something that could actually be done as I have not really seen anything similar atm. If my search skill is weak, and someone has already seen something, let me know. Basically if I "cheat" and give myself 20000 reach, I can interact with anything. Doing it th...

Removing the Spidertron "screen jitter" on moving around.

This is going to sound weird, so bear with me. Because of how I see, I seem to be much more sensitive to movement then other people. It makes it hell to play shooters with all the weapons that have recoil, and when the games have flashy graphics or very "pretty" graphics that make the scre...

Client side only custom GFX (PNG replacements)

TL;DR Ability for each individual player to see the game world graphics as they see fit, without having a Server wide Mod installed that changes it for everyone What ? All the current graphics are flat PNG files that can ALREADY be manually messed with as long as you keep the X-Y pixel sizes. You c...

Biter Pathfinding, custom mapgens question

This is purely a question based on some things I have noticed happen, and wanted to see if it was obvious already or not. Some scenarios have map gen code that generates areas of Void on a map as you explore, to "shape the map" into mazes, or to separate bases etc etc, but this Void Zones ...

Re: When emptying player inventory, delay emptying filtered slots

I have been playing on modded servers quite a bit and even though the inventory slots we have don't change, the VARIETY of items we can carry goes up a lot. In order to re-stock to go and do a "secondary thing" like add a bunch of solar panels, you might have to drop off a ton of stuff jus...

Re: On the topic of entities "animations" and idle machines.

Very nice work! I especially like the squares on your concrete. I have been using the pause function to see and measure. Yes, I know, there is an option to toggle a full-time grid, but I don't like it. About the layout of your labs. I see you are chaining them all. Katherine of Sky, in one of her v...

On the topic of entities "animations" and idle machines.

TL;DR - I wish it was easier to see what building are running and which have stopped more easily. Ok, bear with me. So, I do weird stuff in this game to pass the time, and one of my long term ones is to just replace any graphics that I find hard to see (I dont see THAT well) with ones that I can see...

Re: Client and host based mods

I have been running modified, client-side graphics in Factorio for over a year now. I just go on and just edit the PNG files directly. I keep the original file dimensions and depth, and Factorio just loads them, as there is not CRC checking for the graphics files. The names are the same, the size is...

Any "easy" way to change ghost entity colors?

I was messing around with the shader files in 0.18 and had managed to change it to another color without needing a mod on the server or effecting anyone elses game, but with that same file in Factorio v1.0 (sprite-ycocg.frag) ... cant figure out what to change, as apparently I have no idea what I'm ...

Shader file that controls Ghost entities?

Yea but the "sticking to 13" was the starting constraint back in 'ole 2015. Now the new constraint is "what can I cram in quarter chunks?", and going without sleep because "screw it, have to jam a dual-tile-kinda-sorta-able reactor in there dammit" https://i.imgur.com/Q...

Game Alerts for player (owner) possible?

I can't seem to find a way - or a created Mod - that allows Alerts (for example via the programmable speaker) to only show in the GUI for the player that owns the item creating the Alert. Is this possible at all? Could a Mod do it, or would even a Mod have to call up or create a totally different pa...

Re: Add a Crafting Menu tile for "favourites".

Yea, that's kind of the thing I was aiming at, its just that at the moment because of lack of available keys, those kind of shortcuts are kind of nightmare-ish. In order to craft from the bar via Mods, it's still a lot of finger acrobatics. I haven't seen one that does it directly when the item is z...
