Re: [0.17.79] Multiplayer game stuck while saving game for unsuccessfully joining player

well, it is unlikely if you verify user authentication with factorio.com, correct? or maybe not.. I don't know the details enough to say one way or the other, but even if authentication is required, you could still perform the denial-of-service attack, you'd just need a valid user account to do so.

Re: [0.17.79] Multiplayer game stuck while saving game for unsuccessfully joining player

Just a random thought, but could this lead a a denial-of-service attack against a Factorio server? If someone wrote a program to emulate Factorio's connection process to another server and then just stayed connected without acknowledging the sent map data, would this result in nobody else being able...

Re: Friday Facts #294 - Blog thoughts & Lua documentation improvements

The Lua API documentation is one of the most valuable resources for modders: It is generated directly from the game's source code, so it completely covers all scripting functionalities. Furthermore, additional pages cover some general concepts such as in what order mod files are loaded or how to st...

Report this as a bug in Factorio in the bug reports forum, Factorio shouldn't crash from a mod, it should detect the error and recover from it.
Already done.

Re: [0.17.2] Cant delete items in map editor

I asked Rseding91 about this. He said that the map editor wasn't really made to work with items like this, but explained a work around. With "Tools > None" selected, create a chest in your inventory and place it on the ground. Place all the items you wish to delete in the chest. Select "Tools > Enti...

Re: [0.17.2] Cant delete items in map editor

I am also unable to delete items in the map editor. We used to be able to use X to delete items in 0.16, this doesn't seem to work in 0.17.2.

[0.17.2] Crash when loading custom map/scenario (LuaPlayer - Invalid state for player.)

When loading a new map I created in the map editor as a scenario, the game crashed and popped up a Windows dialog asking to submit the log file to the bug report forums. I believe I had the Creative Mod installed, which I have attached to this post. For some reason I can't attach the custom scenario...

[0.17.1] [kovarex] Stuck in blueprint mode

So, I decided to check out blueprint mode and managed to get myself stuck. As best I can tell, I clicked on the blueprint button on the bottom right of the screen, then hit Q a few times trying to get the blueprint off my cursor, without ever creating a blueprint. That didn't seem to work, so I trie...

Without having the original file with PlayerData, there is not much i can do.
I have a backup of my old player data. If you want it, I can give it to you. If you don't, that's okay too. Just figured I would offer.

Hi Mooncat. Thanks for the great mod. I noticed earlier when creating an oil setup that the maximum resource amount for the Magic Wand "Creator" tool is capped at 1,000,000 (one million) which only allows creating oil patches with a maximum 333% (33/sec) yield. With the oil changes in 0.15, this is ...
