Re: Add Green and Red wire to the Deconstruction Planner

Good idea.
It would also make fixing wrong wires remotely less troublesome. Currently I remove 1 or 2 combinators and place them down again hoping I got everything they connect to correctly in the update blueprint.

Read startup settings default, min and max value in data

Could we have a way to read default, min and max values during data stage?
For example I'd like to only change a stack size to setting.value when setting.default_value == item.stack_size.

Probably should start a new post for this.

Re: [Art Request] Color mask for fluid wagon

Provided the license isn't an issue, I'd prefer to port the functionality for simplicity's sake. If that's not possible, I'll just upload the png files. The code is hardly even worth licensing. I used LGPL3 since that's what mooncat released his color picker and with it the masks. Since the masks a...

Re: LTN Tracker is (not) needed

You lured me out of hiding with that nice looking dashboard Optera, any chance you could share a blueprint so I can compare notes? Or point me to another thread if you have shared previously?

Re: [Art Request] Color mask for fluid wagon

Looking very good so far.
Will you release only the color mask or include the whole trickery required to copy colors between stops, locomotives and wagons?

Re: minable.result(s) with difficulties

Basically it boils down to this: If you're just creating new recipes (like base mod) you don't need to care about variations. But if you ever want to read a recipe (not even speaking of changing it) you need to deal with the annoyingly large set of "all possible variation combinations". And every m...

Re: New update - 1.12.3 : crash save

Read the changelog, the api got changed in preparation for Raiguards LTN Manager.

Other mods have to keep track of api changes just as they have with base.

Re: LTN Tracker is (not) needed

LTNT was very convenient, but hardly needed. I monitor production and consumption of several 100 stations with LTN Reader. 2020-02-23-15-56-01-0480798.png Like steinio said, Raiguard is working on reinventing a gui for ltn, but it'll take time. merged into ltn tracker and opened the topic again

Re: [0.17.79] Please please please let electric poles be rotated

I don't see this as ever happening. Electric poles don't have a saved direction and there's zero gameplay benefit to make them have one. It would increase memory usage, save file size, save time, and load time. All for a purely cosmetic reason. From looking at this thread from afar... isn't this si...

Re: Borderless Window Mode / Full Screen Window Mode.

I've had similar issues, especially when i want to switch to a window behind Factorio during loading.
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=66206

My solution was to set Factorio to window mode and let borderless gaming remove the borders.

Being able to rotate poles would fix the substation and weirdness on multiple connections between the same pole type.

Re: Provider/Requester in one stop

It seems to me that both combined provider/requester blueprints from this post have a small error - the wires going from the stop and the output lamp to the arithmetic combinator that does the * (-1) are inverted. Input and output wiresshould be switched on the combinator, in order to match the beh...

Is that similar to NPN, or is this simply polish? :D Neither, the point is hard cases of OCD are annoyed by the letters not being in alphabetical order.

The zip package from factorio.com is portable.
Any other installation can be made portable by changing paths in config-path.cfg.

For such experiments I'd start by downloading the portable version directly from factorio.com instead of using the steam version.

Event Filters for on_sector_scanned

Please add event filters to on_sector_scanned.

Currently my Vehicle Radar has to react to on_sector_scanned of every radar which 99% of the time will be of no interest.
Being able to specify only my 2 radar prototypes would cut down overhead considerably.
