Re: Friday Facts #161 - Infinite Research and Blueprint Library

The main problem with any such queue system or delayed calling is handling save/load. I can't serialize a closure with upvalues and ones without aren't guaranteed to point at anything valid when de-serialized (maybe you changed your function names between saving/loading). What if it triggered a rem...

Re: Friday Facts #161 - Infinite Research and Blueprint Library

This queue mechanism is interesting for modders. Super useful if a modder would be enabled to create different types of future events (plus data). In this context: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=33441&p=212499&hilit=filter#p212481 forget the first part, ---> Timers Oh ...

Re: Friday Facts #159 - Research revolution

Oh! Love the PvP scenario work! Looking forward to restructuring for the new research levels! Personally I'd love an MMO scenario where all players crash land in remote starting points and have to build their own bases to survive (only eventually being able to pool resources together). Players would...

Re: on_entity_damaged event

Here are some other alternative events with some trade offs. It really depends on the goal of the event and what you want to happen. on_violent_chunk ; something even more general, such as an event in a particular map chunk, would abstract around the quantity of entities in the chunk. on_robot_fixed...

Re: Your first and second impression?

Pre-Purchase: Wow, I think I could get into that (watched Zisteau's videos). Post-Purchase: Yep. This is my life now. Later (10 hrs): Whoa trains and robots!! Much Later (50 hrs): Whoa this thing has circuits!? Even Later (100+ hrs): I still haven't gone to space... What I've loved about Factorio is...

Re: Organize saves into folders by game/world

I wouldn't say the feature is implemented until it has GUI support, but yeah from your link it does look like it should be relatively simple to support "Organize saves into folders by game/world". That being said, I'm not sure if that gets to the spirit of the request, which was to have a ...
