Re: [0.15.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

I think that fluid flow mechanics changed a bit in 0.15.x as in my limited test it seemed larger pipes were transporting fluids faster . I haven't done tests over longer distances as my testing was just repeating the tests from the thread over in the general topics forum . http://i.imgur.com/5R7IyMu...

Re: [0.15.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

Well a slight word of warning about fuels that return things, as at the moment it is not possible to remove the results from vehicles with inserters so for example trains you can't fully automate them if you use a fuel that returns anything. The bug report is currently marked as a know issue, so it ...

Re: Friday Facts #128 - Back down to earth

Well first off it is good to hear that things have been going well over on the steam front. In regards to the loader, although in it's current state it is overpowered, I would really hate to see it not make it into the game in some form. I am salivating at the thought of what could be done with some...

Re: [0.12.1] Seemingly Random Crash (Sound?)

Nope I sadly don't have a good save from this crash as at the time I was running with auto saving set to once an hour and as I remember it, it was about 56 minutes since the last autosave and I had lost quite a bit of work at the time. I haven't had any crashes since that point in time so I don't th...

[0.12.1] Seemingly Random Crash (Sound?)

I really don't know how to better describe this crash, as it occurred seemingly at random and when it crashed all that I was doing was setting the recipe of an Assembling Machine MK II, which I had done a number of time prior with no issues. The only clue that I have is that the log file mentioned t...

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Natural Evolution v3.0.8 - All things Alien!

3.0.9 is still missing two instances of event. Lines 98 and 99 both try and reference entity directly when it should be event.entity instead so I don't think orzelek's patch got fully implemented. Never mind there is a little more missing than I had thought... When an enemy spawner is destroyed it l...

Re: [0.12] Searching for DyTech files in core of Factorio

Just a note in regards to this: This isn't just a case of windows vs non-windows treating file paths differently, which is what I thought of it when I first saw it as well. As a windows user I get the error as well when the path is in the zip form, but not when it is extracted, so that makes it all ...

Re: Friday Facts #68 The trains

I've never played OpenTTD myself, but from how I understand it from reading it's wiki it would check signals immediatially after it and if any of them are green it would show green. IE if you had a train unloading area with 5 sidings each on their own block and then one presignal leading up to them ...

Re: Friday Facts #68 The trains

I am looking forward to finally being able to try out some modded trains after this next update, and and really taking the time to invest in a siginificant railroad system as well as it is something that I have not put much effort into finishing at any point to date despite how much I enjoy trains.

Re: Train stops with "no path" error

If I had to make a guess I would say that it is one of two things. A) It is possible that you may be using the faster locomotives, I remember having issues with them going so fast that block themselves via the path finder. B) What I think it may have happened in this case is that the train go caught...

What if i "want" them to remain separate? Players might have separate power networks easily.

Re: Did you know: you can board cargo wagons?

And don't forget that if the cargo wagon is part of a train and the train is in manual mode you can also drive it manually from inside the wagon. The acceleration/breaking may be backwards depending on how the train is set up though.

Re: Something like getTrainStops() or event.onattack

I don't see a built in method to get the list of train stops as being the most useful in the long run as one would still need to do post processing work as it stands, for example the built in list is not able to differentiate what stop is on what list so for automated train routing one would need t...

Re: Something like getTrainStops() or event.onattack

There is nothing that give's you a list of all the train stops on the map, so you are going to have find them manually. That said you should only ever have to use findentitiesfiltered once, when the mod is first initialized in oninit. game.getchunks() will tell you all the about all the chunks that ...

Well I haven't done any empirical tests to see if lasers shoot any faster when it doesn't show any bonus speed listed, so I don't know if it is just a display issue or not. That said there is a typo in the display of extra turret firing speed. All other bonus have a space before the '+' and it doesn...
