Re: copy_file() function.

I don't want to copy files into the zip files. I want to copy files out . Copying files into the zip file or an unzip mod's folder would just be asking for deterministic problems. write_file("./something.lua", data); copy the file back into the mod then include it. That is just asking for trouble an...

copy_file() function.

We have write_file() that let mod authors write a string to a output file and we have remove_path that lets us delete a file/directory. I know devs are against read_file for deterministic reasons and I'm completely ok with that but can we get a copy_file function? To keep determinism working the fun...

Map Pin API?

Perhaps I'm just missing it but is there an API for accessing the Map pins? The feature originally came with 0.15 but I don't know if it was every exposed to the LUA API as I can't seem to find it anywhere in the API docs. I'm aware of the LuaPlayer alert api but that is per player only. I would ass...

Re: glass smelting recipe bug?

I've brought this up several times since the Factorio 0.14.X days. Haven't doubled checked in a while but initially it was better to always direct smelt glass until you got advanced glass smelting three. Yeah, the third research. Before that you would actually lose a lot of glass compared to just di...

[Dominik][0.16.36] Logistic bots don't leave deconstructing port on their own

I've been playing the Reddit April Community map and I quickly noticed some oddities with marked-for-desconstruction roboports.

Re: [Version: 0.16.31] Oil Refinery

This was a side-effect of the change "Ingredients in recipes are automatically sorted." Indeed. Thanks for the report though - it's now changed in the next version of 0.16. so fluid inputs aren't sorted - only items. Oh good, so glad to hear it! "Gah!

Re: Classes + Extra bodies

When I was looking through the code before I noticed that balanced it misspelled as ballanced. Forgot to mention it until I saw it in-game. Probably too late to correct the lua code but at least the locale value for "bob-class-ballanced" could be fixed. Also the capitalization of "Bob's multiple cha...

Re: Classes + Extra bodies

Just discovered you released this mod. Give me a few days to play around some. Though after an initial look over the code I do have some knee-jerk opinions that will either be confirmed or debunked with some actual play time. So don't take these opinions very seriously at all for now. The fighter cl...

Re: Development and Discussion

I did some math for wire coils and found something odd. There is no material benefit from using copper wire coils or tined wired coils. You get the same amount of wire from it. The only benefit seems to be compaction on the belt, which makes it worth it on its own. But for solder coils you get twic...

I've been getting this too for about 18 hours now. I've seen the rare few still manage to upload a mod update in the same time frame. Wish I knew what the magic trick was.

Just for giggles I tried Firefox, Chrome and...Internet Explorer.
