Re: Run script.on_event from my mod after all other mods

@Raiguard It would probably work but it would increase amount of code an order of magnitude. (Multiplayer and keeping track of things like: which player to clear, is the event already registered, is the event ready to be unregistered.) Beside I can imagine that this would do a number on any mod that...

Re: Run script.on_event from my mod after all other mods

Well, of course "run after all other mods" won't do that if there are more mods which request it. What about we call it "put it after all mods which didn't specify this option unless some dependency specify otherwise" instead. Although, I don't think we have to go as far as creating ways to change o...

Re: Run script.on_event from my mod after all other mods

It seems like there is currently no good way to do that.
Could some mod move this topic to modding interface requests?

If you like it dirty just call your mod zzz_[modname].
The zzz loads it at a very least position. No garanty to be the last one but worth the try.
According to this topic my mod would still load near the beginning because it has no dependencies.

Run script.on_event from my mod after all other mods

I've created a very simple mod that removes all items that are given to a player on respawn. script.on_event(defines.events.on_player_respawned, function(event) local player = game.players[event.player_index] if player.character then player.character.clear_items_inside() end end) The problem is that...

Re: Friday Facts #341 - Audio, Artillery, Attenuation

What do you mean by attenuation? The wiki article tells that this is about how much of the sound can go through a material. Does this mean that sound will be quieter if the thing that makes it is behind a building? Visual effects are always evolving in gaming, but I don't keep up on sound evolution ...

Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

It looks like rocket silo crossed with laboratory, with an addition of particle accelerator. I don't like it. It's too round. It doesn't fit to the rest of the esthetics. Why it is partially underground? Kinda counter-productive when you're trying to build a tower. And it would bother me if I pick i...

Re: Friday Facts #336 - Offshore pump redesign

Nice design, hoped for burner offshore pump tho. There usually are mods for everything. With some luck , you can find one for this, too. ;.) Still, having a mod is not an excuse to have gaps in the base game. You could say this not a big deal because you don't have that many offshore pumps anyway. ...

Re: Friday Facts #335 - Scenario changes, Damage effect filtering

You could also limit the number of particles per amount of damage done.
Particles would double as damage indicator, then.

Re: Set chain signals to red via circuit network

wrong - I can throw red paint on that mirror and not see anything. Nice analogy. So, couldn't you change chain signals to relay the state of signals ahead only where they are not blocked by circuit? Allow to cover the mirror with a red curtain? EDIT: Or I guess, from a technical point of view, it c...

Re: Set chain signals to red via circuit network

Sorry but I have to disagree with pretty much everything you've just written. Honestly, it looks like you looking for excuse for why this feature shouldn't be implemented. Yes that would be a useful example. But your solution is too straight forward: you can imitate the chain signal here with a circ...

Re: Friday Facts #332 - More sounds & Map color tweaks

I like the new red and blue belt sounds. The yellow one sounds more like a computer fan than such a big mechanical contraption. I would add some clatter of metal parts or some screeching. (Although, screeching would probably be too annoying.) I really like the idea that blue belt is so silent. I mea...

Re: Electric network cable connections saved in the blueprint

This isn't going to happen. It simply doesn't work as anyone imagines it would. If a blueprint saved the connections when it was created when you built it, it would literally never connect to your existing network(s) because it was not connected to any of them when it was created. The idea is that ...

Re: Friday Facts #330 - Main menu and File Share Shenanigans

Personally, I think there should be two continue buttons for single- and multi- player. It is quite common to switch between these two modes. E.g. if you friend calls it a day and you want to play some more or if you just loading single-player for a moment to check something. Also, do you already ha...
