Re: Friday Facts #344 - Tile transition collisions & Team Steelaxe speedrun record.

Why not make it so that if water is between two tiles like that, it becomes shallow water?

Re: pY Alien Life - Discussion

Those moondrop numbers are a Factorio bug, so should be filed in the bugs forum. Isolating it to a single small mod would help the factorio devs there.

Re: Friday Facts #340 - Deep desyncs

The problem, is that serpent chose nil as the placeholder value. In Lua, writing a table value as nil is the same as deleting the key, and the key won't be seen when looping the table in the future. When serpent then goes back to 'fix-up' the placeholder values, it ends up with each peer saving a d...

Re: LuaTechnology.effects[1].type="LOCK-recipe"

Pyanadon's Alien Life has a bunch of technologies that do exactly this. Alternatively, an effect type of modify-recipe with a ModifyRecipePrototype could be possible, but that'd be more work on the Factorio side. Still, would help remove code related to updating the recipes in the assemblers. Even b...

Adjacent Tiling Causes Unfortunate Shadows

When placing different tiles next to each other, they produce shadows that look bad. Is it possible to remove those shadows when adjacent?

Re: Pymods Feedback

So, without looking into a tutorial or anything, I started a new game with all of the official mods. First thing I've noticed is that looking for intermediate things like small parts and automation science packs is basically hunting through all of the tabs since there's no order as to where anything...

Pre-filter Pipes

TL;DR Allow the player to choose which fluid a pipe accepts without placing next to a source/sink. What ? Pipes with fluids cannot mix with other pipes with fluids nowadays. When designing fluid networks, it would be nice if we could pre-choose which fluid the pipe network will allow before we plac...

Restore Zoom Level on Load

I'd file this as a bug, as it feels like one, but it's actually a missing feature. Basically, when you save the game, and then load it, the zoom level is reset to default, which when you're in a battle or in a moving vehicle, is oftentimes way too zoomed in. So please store and restore the user spec...

Metadata on Items

There are three proposals here. They all try to solve the same problem -- giving the modder a place to put data that isn't touched by the internal game engine. I'm a bit tired, so I might not explain well here. Ask questions if you're confused. 1) Allow the creation of new "types". These t...

Re: I'm new I have a few questions =)

I'd suggest adding in the Flooring and DyTech mods, and possibly some of Bob's mods. I'd also keep the DyTech inserters out, and use the More Inserters mod. There is an end game in freeplay mode, but it's something you have to actively do and doesn't touch the rest of the game, so don't worry about ...

Genetic Engineering / Breeders

I'm in the process of developing a mod that lets you mutate miniature biters (think maggot sized) that you take from destroyed biter bases, and mutate them into pollution producing, biological factories which I'm calling Breeders for right now. The overall design of the mod is inspired by the beekee...

Modding Help IRC Channel

Is there enough modders for Factorio on IRC that an IRC channel for modding could exist? Is there one already?
