[0.15.16] Misleading error from .set_command()

Hi, If you attempt to give the following command to a LuaEntity or LuaUnitGroup, you get a very misleading error message in return: .set_command({ type = defines.command.attack_area, radius = 40, destination = nil, distraction = defines.distraction.by_anything, }) Note the "destination = nil" part. ...

[Twinsen] [0.15.16] luadoc for LuaCircuitNetwork.signals

http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/LuaCircuitNetwork.html#LuaCircuitNetwork.signals Hi, The luadocs for LuaCircuitNetwork.signals does not specify that it can in fact be nil. I would expect this of a function return, but not of a direct property like this, so I think it's worth mentioning. Also, whi...

Re: [0.15.16] luadoc for LuaEntity.unit_number

That's what I assumed :-) Thank you! Oh, I see the thread was moved to "modding help". I opened it as a bug report specifically because I wanted the luadocs clarified in the name of posterity, future reference, and the good of mankind. I already assumed it behaved like you described it, but of cours...

[0.15.16] luadoc for LuaEntity.unit_number

Hi, So the luadocs for http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/LuaEntity.html#LuaEntity.unit_number is a bit unclear; Are unit_numbers universally unique for the lifetime of a whole game? That is to say, if one was destroyed, is there ever any chance that another LuaEntity will have the unit_number of th...

Luadoc for Concepts#Position unclear

Hi, So I'm on my laptop for the time being, and it's old, and running anything on it is painful :-) Which means I try to start up factorio as few times as I can. And to that end, I try to interpret the API docs without testing everything manually. http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/Concepts.html#Pos...

Re: [0.15] Folks Factorio Fabrications

Is there a blacklist, so that the mode won't work for certain entity s? Yes, you can unzip the mod and edit control.lua in an UTF8-enabled editor. There is a list there, like this: local CONFIG_ENABLE = { -- Categories ["ammo-turret"] = true, car = true, locomotive = true, -- Specific items ["burne...

Re: [Rseding97] [0.15.12] LuaEntity.set_command crashes with empty compound

Someone has tagged this bug report with [Rseding97], which I presume is going to have little effect on whatever script you're using internally to assign forum bug reports :-)

But I cant change it, it seems. Or my browser is broken - which is entirely possible, since I build it from source.

Re: [0.15] Mod setting/config interface - give your input

This whole time, since settings.lua was introduced, I've (wrongly, I see now) assumed that startup settings applied during game creation were persisted throughout the lifetime of the game - and that if I changed them, the settings as they were during initial game creation would simply be used and my...

Re: [0.15.12] LuaEntity units randomly removed

I presume that the game is vanishing units to prevent infinite loops, that it has a while/for loop with a counter and after X iterations it simply says "we better remove this unit or we will loop forever". If it is so, the first thing I'd try on the engine side (because it would be less work than re...

I'm currently rewriting https://mods.factorio.com/mods/kyranzor/robotarmy just for my own benefit, and the whole LuaEntity (unit) and LuaUnitGroup system is shockingly hard to work with. Once I create a group of 20 units with hitboxes no bigger than small biters and send them off to do anything, a w...
