Re: The real reason that turret creep is a common strategy

Grenades, landmines (this one is abit of an exploit), flame throwers, poison capsule, rocket launcher, tank, artillery cannons and spidertrons are the primary offensive weapons of the engineer. I may have missed some of the subtlety as many of these featured creeped up on me in my time in this comm...

surface.delete_chunk{position, update_chart}

I would like an additional parameter to surface.delete_chunk. update_chart also clears chart information for all forces for that chunk. This is what happens already. I would like to be able to set this to false so a mod could generate chunks far into the distance and then delete them, retaining the ...

Re: LuaEntity.unrevive() turn an entity into a ghost

You can manually change the force's ghost_time_to_live to be a positive number to force a ghost to spawn on entity death. local force = entity.force local ttl = force.ghost_time_to_live force.ghost_time_to_live = 60 * 60 * 60 --1 hour entity.die() force.ghost_time_to_live = ttl

Re: [1.0.0] resource.deplete() destroys infinite resources

Infinite resources can still deplete (and they fire the related event) without being destroyed via normal gameplay. I may have mistated my original request, but the goal was to recreate the vanilla behavior.

[0.18.36] Unable to place train ghosts

At some point in the past I was able to place train ghosts. It was super simple, q a locomotive then shift-click on a track to place a locomotive. Do the same for cargo wagons and new train, connected and ready to go. At some point within 0.18 this stopped working. Sometimes when I click a ghost wil...

Re: Network Mask for Electric Poles

This should be possible with a mod. Using scripts when entities are built, connections between incompatible entities can be removed, or connections between compatible entities created.

Re: Event.on_alert_click

Can this event be raised by the player? That is, when the player clicks an alert, the player's client builds the event context and sends it to the server?

It's a bit of a hack and I imagine would cause some delay, but it could work without a significant rewrite.

Similar to on_player_clicked_gps_tag, make the alert surface-aware and give mods the chance to hook into that.

Re: Mylon's Many Mods

The refurbisher is supposed to have multiple output slots. Something must have goofed in the setup. Without the output slots, most of the recipe products are lost. I'll look into it to improve the desired behavior.

Re: Mylon's Many Mods

This is a problem with Py's recipe handling. Bot Servicing sets the "hard mode" recipes to false by default, which is an unusual style of building the recipe but is valid. Please submit that report to Py. You can probably get by this by turning both options in Bot Servicing to Hard mode, then add Py...

Re: Mylon's Many Mods

All mods must be active on the server. Bluebuild doesn't do anything the player can't do without clicking fast enough so it's practically like an auto-hotkey script. But the way it works is the server has to have it.
