Re: Download CAPTCHA prevents automated downloads

One last thing: Could you return a 401 error if the provided credentials are bad? Right now it returns 302 FOUND and redirects to /login, so curl can't distinguish that page from a legit download.

Re: Download CAPTCHA prevents automated downloads

You can now download releases using 'https://factorio.com/get-download/0.16.51/alpha/win64-manual?username={username}&token={token}' similar to the mod portal. Thanks, I appreciate the quick turnaround, but this seems to only work for a couple win64 releases. I'm getting 404s on 0.16.51/headles...

Download CAPTCHA prevents automated downloads

Previously, I was able to download updates using curl. The new CAPTCHA on the login page now prevents this. Is there a ReST API endpoint on the mod portal that presents the latest binary distributions of the client? If not, could we have one? I think using the token stored in player-data.json is an ...

Re: Friday Facts #167 - Reactors Operational

The destroyed railroad image made me think that it'd be pretty neat if trains could derail when hitting broken track at high speed. They'd then create a wreck (new sprites for wagon sand locomotive) and spill their contents all over the area they land. If carrying solids, the player would have to go...

Re: Friday Facts #166 - Combat Revisit

I think weapon balance isn't what's needed to make combat more fun. Mods can tweak the values. I'd rather just have smarter and more diverse enemies, so the challenge becomes having to use different weapons based on the situation, not just researching better weapons. As far as I know, modding the en...

Re: [0.13.0] "API call failed" during mod browsing

I'm on linux and I only crash when browsing mods with a space in the name.

Re: --mod-directory

+1 for this feature; but I would like it to be available via the config file as well. I have a need for being able to switch mod directories at startup time without shuffling around files. I think the general goal should be multi-tenancy of factorio headless servers, and I believe this is one of the...
