Re: [MOD 0.12.12+] Research queue 1.2.6

Well, this is because the images for thouse science packs are not loaded.
They are not loaded likely because dependency RQ -> other mods are missing.
RQ must run the last to process all the images.

Re: [MOD 0.12.12+] Research queue 1.2.6

Are there any known interactivity issues between this mod and some of the science-overhaul mods that introduce a greater number of science-bottle colors and variants? RQ uses data-final-fixes.lua This means that any mod that changes graphics or technologies or their requirements in data-final-fixes...

Re: Proper documentation for "data.lua"

I think you are missing a fundamental thing: How graphics are rendered all depends on the entity you are using. You cannot pick one "graphics type". Instead you pick an entity and then deal with the way it loads its graphics. I do understand this. But this is implementation approach: you have entit...

Of cource that would be nice if we had highly modular architecture, which was discussed and requested But it's too late to think about it since it's complete rewrite of the whole engine: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=221&t=24064#p151491 ... and I agree with that.

Re: Question regarding trains

Its hard/impossible to do it even for devs of factorio engine. Because it would need to split and recombine trains going into the tunnel. This would also require teleporting the train partially (by wagons) while keeping it's velocity and keeping it whole (you can stop it in the middle, while locomot...

Respawn in waves

When attacking a nest, make all enemies respawn in waves of 10-15, instead of continiously appearing one by one.
Have you any ideas how to implement this? I've never modded enemies, so I don't even have a clue how do i do this and is this possible.
