Re: Scroll Tracking for bp books

I am not referring to closing the book and then reopening it. Then I agree with you. I am just referring to opening a blueprint in the book and then closing that blueprint. This reopens the book immediatley and I think in this case it should keep track of where you scrolled.

Re: Scroll Tracking for bp books

You did not understand me correctly. The issue is present in 0.18.15. If you have a large blueprint book and you scroll down in it, then open a blueprint by left-clicking it and close it again by e.g. Esc, the blueprint book window is scrolled back to the top. This has nothing to do with the active ...

Remember Scroll Position of Blueprint List-View in BP book-window

TL;DR Remember scroll position in a bp book while opening a blueprint. What ? When you have a large blueprint book, you scroll down in it, open a blueprint and then close that blueprint again, you are back at the start of the book. I would like to be at the exact place I was before. Why ? Because i...

That sounds nice and helpful, but I assume it does not work with entities created by mods. If it did, it would be exactly what i need.

In addition to the import_stack and export_stack features, I would like to have an option to use similiar features with the uncompressed blueprint string.

Re: control behaviour type of an entity prototype

In version 0.17.2, if you place an entity over an existing entity of the same name, it just places a ghost entity at that position and does not overwrite the existing entity. In particular, if the entity is a constant combinator, it creates a ghost of that entity instead of changing the signals prov...

Re: number of item stacks in a chest

I add stack size-1 first in order to get the correct rounding. Then I indeed multiply by 100k/stack size. The item_slot_count of an entity of the type constant-combinator can be set to any number. 18 is the default value for the constant combinator. My mod "Utility Combinators+" https://mods.factori...

Re: control behaviour type of an entity prototype

I am trying to change the mod conman. For a build-order it uses the create_entity command to place a ghost of the entity. This has the downside, that the created ghost does not try to merge with existing entities. I intend to replace the create_entity command by set_blueprint_entities followed by bu...

I would like to have something like LuaEntityProtoype.control_behaviour_type. I assume that the control behaviour type does not depend on the specific entity, but only the entity prototype or even just the type of the entity prototype. But I belive there is no direct way to access it without placing...

place entity ghost like in blueprint

Currently, if you place a entity ghost using create_entity, it does not try to merge with an equal entity at the same spot. In particular, if we place a ghost of an assembler over an assembler, that doesnt reset that assembler to no recipe, but it creates a ghost entity beneath it. If, however we de...

Re: number of item stacks in a chest

My mod checks the stack size of each item prototype on init. If the stack size of an item agrees with the one given in that item prototype, it works. I assume that is always the case, but I am inexperienced with factorio modding. But it only works correctly if the stack size is a divisor of 100k and...
