LuaTrain weight_modifier

Would it be possible to change train weight, not per entity but for entire LuaTrains? Simply a Lua-controlled modifier that gets added to the total train weight, if that can be done. This would be great for mods adding weight to train cargo, adding dead weight purposefully for more biter-crushing po...

Re: Movie Player

Holy crap, 34 megabytes of memory! With that you could store the entirety of Doom 1 and 2 and still have 8MB to spare. That's seriously impressive!

Re: Friday Facts #150 - New Terrain Experiments

How about a swampy biome, one that would actually affect gameplay by slowing players down and perhaps even disallowing building?

Re: Alien evolution in 0.13 - too slow?

Electric furnaces pollute more until you stuff them with efficiency modules, so you may have accidentally avoided some pollution by delaying the upgrade.

LuaPlayer::close_entity()

A method to close the GUI of currently opened entity. Using this together with LuaPlayer::opened would finally allow mods to have custom entity GUI without having to resort to special items used to open it.

Re: [0.13.10] Burner energy_source doesn't work in certain entity types

Yeah, things like roboports and laser turrets are unlikely to use burner energy outside of some esoteric mods. On the other hand, there already are mods that implement hacky solutions to have electric trains and burner lamps, and I stumbled upon this when I tried to make a burner radar. The fix woul...

[0.13.10] Burner energy_source doesn't work in certain entity types

Recently I've been in need of a burner-powered radar for a mod of mine, but discovered that there's no way to actually fuel them in the game, neither manually nor with console commands. This got me to test burner energy with more entity types. Here's what I found: Burner assemblers and labs work wel...

Re: Friday Facts #148 - Optimizations for 0.14

Very interesting! A belt performance improvement would be a big boon for large factories, currently the near-universal advice from large scale builders is to ditch belts in favour of bots because they run faster.

One thing I'm wondering is, how much impact would this have on modding?

Re: [MOD 0.12.16] Displaying range of turrets [v1.1.2]

Here's an updated version of the mod. Should fix the issues with concrete deleting the indicators and the subsequent crash, so if you had a save ruined by 1.1.2, this should be able to fix it. Also fixes a couple of other potential bugs.

Re: Accumulator usage cutoff points

These technologies would require several things: 1) accumulators capacity at combinator 2) some sort of "switch" power pole that transmits or blocks energy flow. with circuit network conditions Those two are coming in 0.13, so with some planning it will be possible to do this player-side without ma...

Re: Full access to prototype info at runtime

Would it be possible to instead allow the data.lua and control.lua phases of mods communicate somehow? That way we could do this on our own without dev support, at our own peril.

Re: [0.12.3] [pending] Opening placed entities speeds up their sound

I've had this same issue practically on every playthrough, but it's so minor that I always forget to report it. But yes, quitting makes it go away, though it usually just randomly happens again later on.

Re: Friday Facts #123 - Better circuit network (Part 2)

Sounds interesting, but won't this limit building possibilities in some ways? After all there's only a certain limited amount of spots around your machinery, so the amount of combinations you can make is finite. Won't chests be reduced from 5 "inputs" (4 machines at each side + circuit network) to 4...

Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

I think the actual underlying question here is not "Why is solar so OP?", it is "Why does the majority of players gravitate towards solar?"

Re: Guys, How do you feel about the killing power of tanks.

Tanks suck for the same reason flamethrower sucks, they have no upgrades. You can't upgrade their speed or durability, you can't upgrade the cannon at all, you can't upgrade the machinegun rate of fire (and bullet damage itself doesn't cut it), and to top it off, they were supposed to need only gree...

The point of this suggestion is to make piercing rounds have a more complex recipe, though. Recycling machines don't help with that unfortunately.
