Re: Better Robot Notifications

For on-map notifications the approach taken by Colossal Order's "Cities Skylines" game is worth consideration. It limits number of same icons shown within a given area based on map zoom. Zoom all the way out and you might only see one icon for a particular type of notification within a map...

Re: New `bonus-equipment` type?

In combination with armour classes (which would limit what sort of equipments could be installed in armour) the equipment types could also be used to add role play elements to the game (related discussion).

Re: Role playing direction

How about having those class specific roles built into armours instead of the character itself. Then you can build a fighter armour or a scentist lab coat or something. Upgrades could come from equipment - both for player (in their armour slots) and even vehicles. Which is why I put this request in...

Re: Version 0.14.22

In our case it crashes during startup. Is Factorio one of those games? :) Yes, Factorio was borking for me but your team pointed me to a fix within a matter of hours of reporting it; specifically adding `--max-texture-size=4096` (yes, my gfx card is that old) to launch parameters in Steam and I've ...

Re: What Lua Version does the game use?

If possible, please make it so your editor sets up the common directory structure (based on what's in mod) as that will make it much easier should community need to offer support or provide long-term maintenance of mod at later date.

Re: Require location adjacent to water?

Rough sketch of code to swap a offshore-pump with some other entity: Note: There's likely errors in this code, I've not tested it -- shortcut to defines.events table local events = defines.events -- event groups -- Note: Some of the event names might change in Factorio 0.15 local built = { events.on...

Re: Require location adjacent to water?

EDIT: Ignore this entire comment, I read your post above wrong. In answer to your question *will* it take up loads of UPS: No, it won't, because the events used will only be triggered when user tries to build something. If your mod is causing UPS drop, it's most likely to be your on_tick handler. Ea...

Re: Version 0.14.22

EDIT: Actually we have issues with OpenGL occasionally too. On some Mac computers it claims 16k texture is supported, but when the game tries to use it, OpenGL crashes the game. Does that bug crash the game early on or after about an hour? Reason I ask is that I have a few Mac games that seem to cr...

They are just normal sprite buttons - when clicked, they simply put an item stack in to the player's cursor (or take what's in the cursor and put it in the sprite button). http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/LuaGuiElement.html http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/events.html http://lua-api.factorio.com...

Sounds like EvoGUI - in it's options screen (cog icon in toolbar) there are additional sensors that can be enabled:

Re: Mod to bring back victory poles

Or just edit the existing mod and tweak it to work at lower tech level, that way you can still have biters so battles are needed to expand, but they won't attack the base as much. Another alternative is to use Creative Mode and put biters in to peaceful mode https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Mooncat/cr...

Re: .15 Request for Consistent event names

I think that would be acceptable. It's a trivial fix for modders, and it will make things much more consistent as well as removing ambiguity.

Re: Example of a well structured Factorio mod?

It depends on what you plan to do as to how your mod will be structured. I'd advise looking at existing mods in the mod portal (download some, they are just zip files so you can easily open them to see what's inside). Generally speaking, it's wise to have just a few files in the main folder (the inf...
