Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

You will be able to do this in the next update, however until then you'll have to use a mod. Search either "Foreman" or "Blueprint String" on the mod portal. Either one of these mods will let you do what you want.

Re: Can't connect to any server

you want to connect to a server with different mods you think you have the same but the owner changed something inside it. ASK whats that about and get his modified mods to connect. No, that's the thing. I didn't have any mods, and I was trying to connect to a vanilla server. EDIT: And it seems to ...

Can't connect to any server

For some reason, whenever I attempt to connect to a server, I get this error:
Mods mismatch detected!
base: Mod contents are different even though versions are the same
Any idea why this might be?

Re: Adding a clickable entity

I think I tried that, and it gave me an error. I think a chest entity should work, since the player won't be able to access its actual gui, and I can probably set its storage slots to 0 anyways. The only other question I would have is: Is there a way to store a custom variable with an entity, and i...

Re: Adding a clickable entity

That should work. If I delete the entity and then place it back, it should close the gui, right?
EDIT: What type of entity should I use? I need something that can be clicked on, however I also don't want it to use power. (I don't want the little flashy icon over it)

Adding a clickable entity

So I had an idea for a mod. Basically, the mod wouldn't be meant to be played in any map, (I may make it so it won't even do anything if you load it in freeplay) but when played in a certain scenario, it would help enhance that scenario by adding specific things to the game that I wouldn't be able t...

Looking to play with some people through steam

Hello! I've been playing Factorio for a few months now, and I'd like to start playing with some other people. Singleplayer is great (and I will probably still play it, there's still a decent amount of stuff I haven't done) but multiplayer sounds like even more fun. So, I'd like to have around 2-4 ot...

Re: Discarded and/or unused

Ooo, nice. I may use some of these. By the way, how did you make some of those beautiful graphics? All of them (especially the machines) are way better than anything I could do right now XD

That will be useful. I'll keep it in mind if I have any non-Factorio-specific Lua questions.

Re: Needing some help with control.lua.

Okay. What exactly would "key" be? I've seen some places where it's index, some where it's _, and probably others that I don't remember off the top of my head.

Re: Needing some help with control.lua.

You need to do your logic inside one of the events. What event are you using for that code? You need to do such things in an event handler. Have a look at http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/ for a list of events and how to register handlers for them (or look at an existing mod for how it's done.) A...

As far as I know, they're exactly the same. New game essentially just makes a freeplay scenario.

Needing some help with control.lua.

Alright. I've been making mods for a little while now, and I have a basic idea of how things work. One thing I don't understand, however, is the control.lua. I'd like to know some basic things you can and can't do with it, as well as something basic to get me started using it, and some common errors...
