Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

While I generally like being challenged, it strongly depends on the type of the challenge. We need to draw the line between a demanding task and a tedious one. You don't want your game to be tedious (or at least I assume so). For example having to design you nuclear power plants in a way that will p...

Re: Changelog tutorial

Anyway, the gist of the other thread is this: It's OK to apply very strict rules if you tell people what the rules are. In the beginning, the rules were too strict and undocumented. The developers won't ease the rules, but we have been promised that documentation will be improved. It's only OK to a...

Re: Changelog tutorial

This syntax is reaching a whole new, unknown before levels of being too strict. Why can't the parser just use some simple regexes to make things easier for modders if not actual game programmers of the game. I've written 6 simple regexes which would be fully compatible with the current syntax but el...

Re: Friday Facts #296 - All kinds of bugs

NPE = Null Pointer Exception. In Java (and other Java Virtual Machine languages like Groovy, Scala, and Kotlin), there is a NullPointerException that is thrown when the object is null and you are trying to access a value/property or call a function on it. In C# (and other languages that run on the ...

Re: Friday Facts #295 - New design for the chemical plant

It looks like something that would instantly lure all enemies from the map after being turned on. Maximum pollution after 5 seconds.

Re: How to detect change of startup mod settings

Thanks! mod_startup_settings_changed works.
It's bad that it doesn't tell you which setting has changed, though. Only some of them require recharting the map.

How to detect change of startup mod settings

I need to check if startup settings of my mod were changed since the last save. My mod changes some colors on the map preview and I need to call game.forces.player.rechart() if settings were changed. Event on_runtime_mod_setting_changed doesn't seem to be triggered in this situation and I cannot fin...

Re: Friday Facts #292 - Inching closer to stable

I really think player AI in this game should be nerfed. The game is just broken right now, balance-wise. I mean, how this move with building 3D engine is even legal? How am I supposed to compete with that?

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

I have written specifically about "people complaining that the new UI looks bad". That's not the same. Regardless of the rest of it you are telling the developers they shouldn't listen to people who disagree with you simply because they have a different view of things than you. That's a really crap...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Please, do not listen to people complaining that the new UI looks bad. It look awesome IMO. I love the dark. I think this is a step in the right direction but there is one big problem with this tabbed concept: where is the indication when I trash something and more generally why do I need another cl...

Re: Friday Facts #289 - Character GUI

Wow, a lot of really good changes. Good work! I especially like the personal logistics GUI. It cures all the pain in the ass I had with the old version. You could use a yellow-red gradient for the situation when robots are on the way, but there isn't enough in the logistic network. The only concern ...

Hi! It looks like the new version hasn't set path to HR textures of particles. Here's some context. I guess it wasn't intended because before the update there weren't any HR textures missing.

Re: [0.17.x] Better item/ghost handling with new toolbar

I like the second solution. It would also prevent form placing ghost by accident which is annoying when you don't have robots yet.
