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?

In 0.18 I could change values in "sprite-ycocg.frag" and mess with what the ghost color would look like. I can't seem to change what I *think* should do something, as nothing seems to happen (basically I just alter number values and see what happens. Does anyone know what effects the color...

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...

Hello. I have followed this forum topic almost from when it started, and only tried a few things here and there, alas, as I almost 99% of the time go on servers with a lot of mods, and all the recipes use totally different ores and items, working a "vanilla" system for this did not seem th...

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...

Add a Crafting Menu tile for "favourites".

NOTE: The "green" tile backing (left, the right one was painted manually) was me hacking the PNG files because my eyesight is not great and I wanted a way to more easily see which tile was selected. TL;DR When a game is running a TON of Mods, locating something you want to make takes a lon...

Alerts that only appear to the player that made it.

I like the idea of setting alerts to keep an eye on things, but they flash for everyone else as well.

Would it actually be possible to have a flag when you set it up so they only appear to the name of the person that set the alert?
Kind of useful on say, an OARC map.

Re: Messing around with Shader files. Ghost entities?

Yep that's the Shader file I wanted. Very good, TYVM.

I've made the line (28) as:

fragColor = YCoCgToRGB(param, alpha) * max(vTint, vec4(1.0, 0.1, 0.1, 0.1));

Green didn't work well, Red seems ok. Hard(er) to miss them now. It should work well.

Re: Messing around with Shader files. Ghost entities?

I'd like to state for the record that "being able to see the game in order to play it" is not "cheating", and I cannot, for the life of me, understand what exactly I'm "cheating" at. This is not a competitive first person shooter where I can now see people through walls...

Re: Adjusting the Darkness of Night

Messing around with Shader files. Ghost entities?

Due to the fact that my eyesight is not the best, and having searched the net and asked around, I had for 0.16, and now for 0.17, modified Shader files to allow me to play online with basically "always daylight" (because the constant night-day-night-day contrast changes give me headaches) ...
