Re: Friday Facts #406 - Space Age Music

Yeah I feel like it might be quite a jarring switch once we get to the new Space Age areas. I am aware that we only heard ~3% of WIP music and it certainly sounds good but I do hope that there is more to it that fits more with the unique style of the existing soundtrack and that not everything is f...

Re: Friday Facts #406 - Space Age Music

I have a fondness for orchestral/classical-style music, but I find myself not liking the examples shown. Taylor's work on the pre-existing Factorio soundtrack set a tone for the whole game that, musically speaking, the new tracks don't exactly compare to; this not to say the new work is bad, just th...

Re: Ammo range modification

My mod actually has zero dependencies. I run a check for other mods but there is no need for those mods to be present. The only reason I can think of regarding other mods overriding the behavior of mine is, my attempt to ensure my mod loads last by appending 'zzzzzz' was futile.

You can set the max range for the projectiles under action delivery. https://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/types/ProjectileTriggerDelivery.html attack_parameters = { ammo_type = { category = "laser", target_type = "entity", action = { type = "direct", action_delivery = {...

Use ammo_type.range_modifier, as said by the first reply to your post.
This does not fix the issue.

Re: Ammo range modification

You want to change the range during the control stage -- is that correct? ... Properties like "turret_range" or "radar_range" belong to LuaEntityPrototype and are read-only. You can modify these, but only on starting the game (during data stage). Nope. I'm doing all of my change...

[IDEA] ICBMs

I know the MIRV mod does something similar to this idea, but something is just not as satisfying about having to launch a satellite with a limited number of uses, as actually individually manufacturing rockets, payloads, etc. and assembling them in a dedicated silo. Not to mention watching a missile...

Ammo range modification

I'm not sure if this has ever been discussed, nor if this was intentional or just oversight, but I've noticed there's no way to change an individual ammo item's set range, despite the fact that other ranges throughout the game can be configured with mods. Enabling ammo ranges to be tweaked alongside...

Re: Friday Facts #381 - Space Platforms

My main question is, are the platforms' limitations going to be modifiable by end users, or are they strictly hard-coded? I feel it'd be a fun challenge to play a modded game of Factorio with the end goal of building a space base, so not just transportation platforms but a dedicated logistics hub, b...

As part of the Space Age work we had to bite the bullet and change tiles to support up to 65'000~ tiles. It means more memory used and potentially save file size but it's now going to be there.

Re: Friday Facts #373 - Factorio: Space Age

With space being added to the progression alongside several new planets, is it possible that the 255-tile limitation will be upped? The new tiles needed for these planets and for the space platforms will create problems for mods like Alien Biomes, which already have problems enough with that limitat...

Re: No more than 255 tiles?

It's not going to happen. It would be a memory and performance hit for *every single base game player regardless of them using mods* - that's not going to happen. Wouldn't this be inevitable in the future, anyways? If a major content update is ever released, or Factorio nears the end of its develop...

Re: Question about the global table

The global table is something that belongs to your mod. It will be accessible in script.on_init, script.on_configuration_changed, migration scripts, and during normal running of the game, but NOT in script.on_load. You should put things in there that can't be easily restored when you load a game: e...
