Re: Log Something When Mod is Missing Dependency

I suppose I could, but I assume there are plenty of edge cases that would complicate the matter. For example, dependencies can specify the version as well. If I were to do this myself, I would probably do it with a debug.sethook in lua (since I'm working with an instrument mod). But that's super nic...

Re: Log Something When Mod is Missing Dependency

It seems there is at least notes that the there are duplicate mods, which I believe would have to be right before dependency resolution (you can't figure out dependencies before you figure out the valid mods). Then it will load the mods in the various stages and say how long they took to load. 0.852...

Log Something When Mod is Missing Dependency

Currently, if a mod is added manually without it's dependencies it will be added to the mod-list.json and enabled, but will silently not run in Factorio. Can a log message be added to describe that this is happening? Why it is happening would be preferable, but at least that it was skipped on purpos...

[Implemented] Instrument Mode on Headless

The headless install of Factorio does not include instrument mode. I assume this is because instrument mode is not useable with multiplayer. Automated tools would be best with headless mode because it is x7 times smaller than the main install, and doesn't require much extra setup. Any change this ca...

Add invert to LuaSurface Find Tile Interfaces

Both find_entities_filtered and count_entities_filtered have an "invert" parameter to invert the filters, can we please have the same added to find_tiles_filtered and count_tiles_filtered?

When set on an item; that item always comes first in the items-to-build-this on an entity. So you can force a specific item to be the one that the game tries to use to build something.
Awesome, this covers my use case then.

Re: [1.1.6][Modding] Entity placeable_by Hidden Dependency on Item's Order

I admit I'm confused about what the mod described above actually does, it sounds like it is a generic chest that can be cycled between variants. I would have thought placeable_by works just fine for this case but maybe there is some wrinkle I'm not understanding. I think the difference between our ...

Re: [1.1.6][Modding] Entity placeable_by Hidden Dependency on Item's Order

If you have several items that place the same entity you don't really need placeable_by. Except that then blueprints are just chosen by whichever is first in the sort order, so if you want any kind of control over that you'd need something. And yes, all of this would be solved if the bots were arra...

Re: [1.1.6][Modding] Entity placeable_by Hidden Dependency on Item's Order

What this is depends on what the goal of placeable_by is. Is it just another way to say place_result, but from the entity side of things? Or is it actually different. If it's supposed to be an override (which is how the wiki reads to me), then this is a bug: Determines which item is picked when &quo...

Re: [1.1.6][Modding] Entity placeable_by Hidden Dependency on Item's Order

As far as i understood what @Rseding91 said in this thread there can only be one item that bots use to build an entity. The array is meaningless. And if you rely on that it's probably easier to just make sure (data-final-fixes?) that your entities are placeable by exactly one item. I did see that, ...

[1.1.6][Modding] Entity placeable_by Hidden Dependency on Item's Order

I recently switch my Generic Logistic Chest mod to using placeable_by instead of using my own implementation of this logic for ghosts, upgrades, and pipette. This mod allows the player to place a "generic" chest and switch it to any other logistic chest (specific "replacement" ch...

Re: Alt-F4 #16 - Modulating Pure Speed

In retrospect though, I can’t believe it wasn’t in the mod from the beginning In not so much retrospect (never used that mod) that menu looks clunky. Why isn't it a simple "scroll-wheel to select next chest type" *before* placement? Or at least "place last used chest type by default&...

[Twinsen][1.0.0] Crash from Container changed to Logistic Chest in Blueprint library

When working on a mod of mine I tried to change some code that takes a logistic chest and turns it into a normal container. I'm trying to stop this and just keep it as a logistic chest. When I do this, then the game boots fine, but hard crashes when I try to load up a new game or a save. I saw some ...

Fast replacing (via script or just manually) a real entity that has a circuit connection to a ghost entity causes the wire to be removed.

[1.0.0][Modding] Ghost Lost in Migration When Changing Entity Type

If an entity has a ghost placed, then that entity is migrated to an entity with a different type, the normal entities will be mirgated correctly but the ghosts disappear and are not migrated. I have attached a sample mod to make this happen. The save is from the original run, where I had a "foo...
