Re: [0.14.21] Desync with mod

There was a problem with the way that we did event handling which made the ion cannon mod register the same function multiple times, specifically an on_tick function which meant that for some clients an ion cannon would be ready while for others it would not be as the times would tick down at differ...

Re: Debugging a multiplayer desync?

You can diff (I use Beyond Compare but I only have a free trial) the files in the desync report, specifically the level.dat, level_with_tag_ticks.dat and script.dat files would probably be the most useful. You aren't guaranteed to be able to figure it out from that and interpreting the results can b...

Set playtime

It would be great if we could reset the playtime counter (in the multiplayer browser) or at least specify a surface for it to base the timer on. Probably it just uses game.tick now and it might be too much work to change that but it's worth a shot right? :D

Re: Mod Edit and Tests Q

If you're only changing runtime scripts (ie control.lua) then you don't need to restart Factorio, only the map. If you change data scripts though, you need to restart the game completely.

You'll need quotes around resource (type = "resource") :)

Re: simple suggestion

This is already confirmed for 0.15 and I believe will support multiplayer servers too. Here is the roadmap thread, I've also seen it mentioned in other places but don't have any exact link for you.

Re: Antigrief

I'm not able to test (away from PC right now) but I suggest trying the on_player_selected_area event. You'll probably have to do some queue and on_tick stuff so you can cancel the deconstruction but I'm just assuming how the event works.

Re: fix game not loading due to mods

You can find your mod folder is %Appdata%/Roaming/Factorio/mods usually, from there you can delete the mods that are causing the issue.

You can find the list of events here, in this case on_player_left_game is correct.

Re: Game wont launch (Steam)

Try opening task manager and closing all of the processes related to steam and then reopen it and try again. For reference you can find out how to get the log file here but since factorio is not actually launching in this case it would not be of use.

Re: Instand Desync Multiplayer

Can you try updating "3Ra-Modpack" and seeing if that changes anything? Keep a backup of the current mod in case it doesn't. If you can give me the desync report I will look into the issue more.

Consider the /evolution or /time commands, they are commands that are open to anyone. I assume that these custom commands will fire for anybody and it will be up to the modders to check player.admin if the command is for admins only, as this is a more flexible solution in several ways.

Re: Improve the interaction between forces (multiplayer)

Currently in 0.14 there are no "friendly" forces. There are just forces of which you've got a cease-fire. I added "friend" force support for 0.15 which gives you access to the inventories/entities on the other force. It doesn't allow full access as if you owned everything but yo...
