Thoughts on implementing cargo planes in the AircraftDrones Mod

I'm currently thinking about how to implement a cargo plane feature in the Aircraft Drones Mod (https://mods.factorio.com/mod/AircraftDrones), and I would like anyones opinion - especially other modders opinion - on my current concept. My goal is to implement a solution similar to LTN, where you put...

Re: [0.18.24] artillery-flare does not have shot_category set

I disagree with the universal remote solution. That means if I want to implement a custom artillery with its own remote, and I don't want it to be used by the vanilla remote, then I have to change the vanilla remote. And changing base game objects always has the potential of breaking other mods... O...

Re: Biters ignore unmanned vehicle entity

The passenger solution works perfect, thank you.

Last question: the passenger has no vision on the map, like the player character. How would I achieve this?

Re: Biters ignore unmanned vehicle entity

local plane_entity = table.deepcopy(data.raw.car.tank); So this will not work, I have to use one of the prototypes mentioned in the wiki article, correct? Or is there a flag I can assing to my entity? I couldn't find anything here https://wiki.factorio.com/Types/EntityPrototypeFlags, and the wiki a...

Biters ignore unmanned vehicle entity

Hi everybody, I'm working on a mod with flying attack drones, which are basically unmanned cars driven around by script. My problem is: biters and worms ignore those entities. The drone entity and also for example the rockets used for the attack are both created with force = player.force, but that d...

Inserter filtering for non-researched items

Why is it not possible, to filter for non-researched items on inserters? I suppose in 98% of all cases you only want to filter what you have, but there are some cases, where you might need to set filters for items you haven't researched yet to fullfil future factory needs. And I think a filter is li...

Re: Trivial smoke not working in 0.18

Solved thanks to RustyBlade64 help on Discord. Apparently the trivial_smoke function was changed from global to local, so you can't use it anymore: https://github.com/wube/factorio-data/blob/0.17.79/base/prototypes/entity/demo-entities.lua#L539 https://github.com/wube/factorio-data/blob/0.18.6/base/...

Re: [MOD 0.13] Water Well - pump water from the underground

The in-game auto-update option doesn't work for me.
I'm not sure, but it could be the base version in the dependencies. I think it can't handle subversions, try it like this:

"dependencies": [
"base >= 0.18",
"? IndustrialRevolution >= 0.99.0"
]

Trivial smoke not working in 0.18

Hi fellow modders, I am having problems updating a mod from 0.17 to 0.18. I used to define the smoke of burners like this: data:extend({ trivial_smoke{name = "red_smoke", color = {r = 0.8, g = 0.1, b = 0.1, a = 0.3}, start_scale = 0.8, fade_in_duration = 30 }, trivial_smoke{name = "blue_smoke", colo...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Realistic Reactors

Is it possible to cool 4 connected reactors with ECCS with core temp>900 and no load (no boilers) ? Even with auto-SCRAMing at 950C they manage to melt pretty fast, what am I doing wrong? Setup: https://i.imgur.com/j82a4zb.jpg Pretty much same results with 1 cooling tower. Pumps water into reactor ...

Re: Functions within tables (LUA-Question)

Yeah, I'm beginning to understand that the object-oriented approach to LUA is maybe not the best idea. I am doing this just for the fun of it, but I think I'll put the bigger part of my functions outside of metatables. Worth mentioning here is probably also this: https://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/...

Re: Functions within tables (LUA-Question)

I just thought it would be neat to pack it into the table. Well, yea, maybe. But you're not creating one function (from what i understand) you're creating an extra copy of the function for every table element (i.e. wasting memory). Also debugging code when there's a function stored in the savegame ...

Thank you! Both your examples work.
And I like the second one a little better as it is closer to what I was expecting :)

Re: Functions within tables (LUA-Question)

The sum function is just a simplified example, the actual function I want to build is more complicated. And of course I can store the function somewhere else, I just thought it would be neat to pack it into the table. So if I understand your first code example correct, it should work like this? loca...

Functions within tables (LUA-Question)

Hi everybody, this is probably more a LUA then a factorio question, but I hope I'm still in the right place here...

Also a section for last used and last crafted items would be nice.

Re: [MOD 0.16] Realistic Reactors

I'm aware my post may be beyond the scope of this mods intent, but given I haven't played in some time I noticed that Bob has added new reactors which undermine this one by quite a fair bit from what I've glanced at. It also prohibits thorium fuel being used in your reactors as well. I was wonderin...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Realistic Reactors

Also today I was dumbfounded what is happening in my ECS setup, after some troubleshooting I believe there is cross-leaking between two adjacent cooling towers in the middle of my setup, even though their inputs and outputs mismatch. I hope following video illustrate it clearly: https://youtu.be/b0...
