Re: Detect other mods installed

It's actually pretty easy. From http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/Data-Lifecycle.html : a global table mods exists that contains a mapping of mod name to mod version for all enabled mods The global table mods still exists So, in the data stage, if mods[modname] then will tell you if a mod named mod...

Re: PyCoalTBaA or the PyCoal Angels Patch

PyCoal does a lot overrides in the data updates stage, To accommodate for this The patch mod will also want to do the updates in the data-update.lua stage. Seconding this advice. Additionally the patches should be done using bobs library functions or directly editing the required field in data.raw ...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

Try saving, exiting to the main menu, selecting options -> mods, changing it there, then restarting Factorio and loading your save. The reason they're startup options is they modify things that are loaded before you get to the main menu, hence the need to restart Factorio. Even if you could change t...

Re: Development and Discussion

the 2 iron -> 1 steel is strictly from bob's mods, due to reducing the cost from 5 to 2 plates. angel's smelting reduces the cost from 5 iron to 4 iron. however, there's still used to steel smelting, just not for making steel plates. for example, cobalt steel. in order to make cobalt steel, you nee...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

I think "horribly, horribly wrong" is a bit of an exaggeration, but randomone is correct that there is a bug in Angel's Refining that only triggers when Angel's Smelting is not present. In the \prototypes\recipes\refining-output.lua subfolder of Angel's Refining, the line energy_required = 7, in eac...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

As has been pointed out by a couple of people now, you don't get more plates from sorting until you're doing metallurgy smelting or single result sorting (i.e. saphirite + jivolite -> iron) anyway. Unless you need the slag for something (unlikely at this stage of the game) you can stick with crushed...

Re: why mod creator make mod in seperate download ?

Now that mod options exist, it is in fact possible to combine related mods together in that fashion and simply have startup options to turn the parts of the mod on or off (see Color Picker for an example of a mod that has done this; specifically, look at the changelog for version 0.4.0). In fact, in...

Re: [Mod 0.15] Omnimatter

Your recent update broke Angel's algae processing balance really badly. A lot of the recipes require as much or more omnite for omni algae than it would take if you just turned the omnite directly into the final product (and the algae processing method also requires more machines, more space, and mo...

Re: [0.15.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

Yeah, you pretty much want to use 5pipes for Tungstic, Crude oil and Heavy oil, 10pipes for everything else. And personally, I don't even bother doing that, I just use 10pipes for everything. It sorta makes having different size pipes pointless, since those 20pipes never get used. I have considered...

Re: Development and Discussion

Are you, by any chance, playing using expensive recipes? Using normal recipes it's still 40 molten lead -> 4 lead plates for me, while on expensive it's 50 -> 4 (note that expensive now also has 5 lead -> 3 plates in a furnace and 5 crushed rubyte -> 2 plates, while on normal it's 4->3 and 3->2 resp...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

As I said already, this worked when the only tech you had was mechanical refining; there's a number of ways to fix it by researching more tech (such as the metal mixing furnace you point out), but at that point it probably isn't a speedup over just making filter inserters. I know how to play, I'm j...

Re: Bugs & FAQ

You are right that is indeed a real boo-boo I think that one's my fault; I was in a hurry to get the files into a state where I could debug the new code, so I was doing a lot of copy/paste of one recipe and then editing in the correct values; I must have lost track of where I was in the file. Then ...

Re: What means "Nauvis" in factorio

I've lost track of where I first heard it; internally, when you get an alert it includes the name of the game surface that the alert is being triggered on, and the main surface is (apparently) named after the planet. Presumably, your character decided they needed something to call the planet they we...
