Re: [1.1.26] Pollution cloud barely visible on minimap or regular map

You could check the value of expected_max_per_chunk and min_to_show_per_chunk in game.map_settings.pollution (should be 150 and 50). I recall that these were changed at some point between 0.12 and now, and maybe the migration went wrong. Bingo! expected_max_per_chunk was set at 6000 for some reason...

Re: [1.1.26] Pollution cloud barely visible on minimap or regular map

EDIT: Ran the following command: /c game.player.print(game.map_settings.pollution.ageing) It was currently at 0.75, so I reset it to 1.0 (the initial value when I started a new map). This was done prior to starting the research mentioned below. ----- Screenshots attached, will upload the save later ...

[1.1.26] Pollution cloud barely visible on minimap or regular map

Wondering if you all can suggest anything for a problem I seem to be having with a particular game - I don't think it's a bug per se, but likely an internal setting that got changed somehow that I just can't pin down. Have been playing this particular map since about 0.12, importing it from version ...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Since updating to 0.17.x, I've noticed that sounds seem to be handled differently. Specifically, sound volume is no longer independent of the zoom level as it was in 0.16 and previous, but changes depending on how close or how far you are zoomed in. Is there a way to change this back to what it was ...

Adding to this, the toggle could be per-wagon, or even per-train.

looking for a console command that will remove all enemies in a certain area
Try

Code: Select all

/c for k,v in next,game.player.surface.find_entities_filtered{force='enemy',area={{-1000,-1000},{1000,1000}}} do
        v=v.valid and v.destroy()
        end
Worked perfectly, thanks!

Hello, looking for a console command that will remove all enemies in a certain area, not necessarily in a radius centered on the player. As a related example, I'm playing around with map commands, and used the following to generate a small "corridor" of explored terrain on my current map: ...

Re: [Request]: More control for power grid

Ideally I'd like something I could set up (relatively) easily and control from a central location, or even remotely. Running circuit wires hundreds of tiles out to my perimeter walls just makes me cringe a bit. Plus, I'd like to indulge my Star Trek-like fantasies here too..."Scotty! Enemies in...

[Request]: More control for power grid

Looking for a mod that will let me fine-tune my power grid better than I can now with just power switches. The idea I have in mind is an item (call it a power distribution box) that can be placed at various spots around your base and allow you to divide your power grid into "zones" that ca...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

I'd like to know if it's possible to create a circuit similar to an SR latch that will open a power switch when it senses a power loss on one side of the switch. I have a couple of outposts that are partially self-sufficient with solar and accumulators, and I'd like to make sure that in the event my...

A question, what are some good "introductory" settings for Rampant? I'd like it to give me a bit of a challenge defending my massive base, but not overwhelm me right off the bat (as happens with default settings). While this is probably due to base design, I'd like to be able to tone thing...

Editing base mod file

I would like to edit the Factorio base mod in order to up my walking speed a bit. I know it's possible, have done it before on a different install, but cannot for the life of me remember which file to edit or what to put in there.

Any advice? Running 0.16 stable version on Windows 7. Thanks.

I'm using the updated version of the original poster's blueprint, but I am having trouble getting it to start making fuel cells. I've got about 100 U-235 in the system, plus a ton of U-238. One of the enrichers is working full-time, with another slowly getting up to speed as more U-235 enters the sy...

Re: [MOD 0.15] Orbital Ion Cannon 1.5.1

Is there a console command that can place ion cannons into orbit? While updating an old base to 0.15, I inadvertently removed this mod and lost the dozen or so cannons I'd launched :( Having a couple of them back would be nice!
