Re: [posila] [0.18.1] Zooming out to 0.1 causes some chunks to not render correctly

That is a fair point bud, and i was reluctant to even post it.
However, i thought: This worked fine on 0.17, so maybe they should know :)

Goodnight :P

[posila] [0.18.1] Zooming out to 0.1 causes some chunks to not render correctly

Hi,
Using the command /c game.player.zoom=0.1 causes weird chunk rendering issues.
Please see the attached image for reference.

Walking away from the blacked out chunk so it's out of view and back in again seems to fix the issue, but i assume this is just the game re-rendering it anyway.

[0.18.1] Crash when attempting to load a world [modded] (BlueprintEntities::setupContainedEntities)

Hi, So i have a bit of a weird crash here, I feel it's related to my blueprint storage and also related to the Krastorio loaders. Hopefully to be useful, i have zipped up the contents of everything I think you'll need, you can download it here: http://www.agngaming.com/private/factorio/crash_info.zi...

Re: LuaRendering and LuaPlayer Limitations

Well yes i want to rotate the sprite, and in terms of it being missed you pretty much answered your own question... "draw_text is the only one with it" - so why not the rest that supports scaling? I understand the limitations in terms of having text and a sprite re-sizing on the fly when used at the...

Expand LuaRendering to be able to be drawn to the screen

Hi, Could there be any way of allowing us to draw sprites/text/rectangles etc directly to the screen, instead of the world - perhaps using X any Y from the players resolution? If this is a no because player.gui.screen exists, then could you please instead add the option for certain GUI elements such...

LuaRendering and LuaPlayer Limitations

Hi devs, and others. LuaRendering: Please can you make draw_sprite have the option to also be able to scale_with_zoom - i feel this has been missed? LuaPlayer: I was also going to write some code to do some LuaRendering work based off the players zoom level, but it's write only - is there any reason...

Setting a logistic chest active to false should make the logistic network ignore the chest

Hi, If possible, i would love for logistical chests (Prototype/LogisticContainer) to be ignored by the logistic network logic when the entity's active state is set to false. But the player should still be able to use the chest, as in store items manually and set logistical requests, scripts getting ...

Re: Expand LuaEntity(Prototype) to view Mod Interactions as a Read Only Variable

Agree with deadlock, any more areas where this data is available to us, the better.
While a long shot, i would love to have this before a stable release.

Expand LuaEntity(Prototype) to view Mod Interactions as a Read Only Variable

Hi, For a project i have in my head, I would find it really useful if modders could grab the data of what mods have touched what items, and in what order during game play. For example, if you wanted to make a whitelist/blacklist mod, which disables placement of a certain mods buildings depending on ...

Re: [EXAMPLE] Dynamic Loading of RSO Configs directly from the mods

This is a shame bud, but i can understand your side of things indeed. Hopefully one day you can shove the responsibility to the mod creators to configure RSO, instead of yourself having to do a lot of work :) However, as you have the entity prototype and autoplace settings available to you during th...

What about something like this?

Re: [EXAMPLE] Dynamic Loading of RSO Configs directly from the mods

This is true, but some simple nil checks on the data validation stage could be done, if any data validation fails then ignore the whole mod, and report it in the log file, or a message on the screen like you do already.

[EXAMPLE] Dynamic Loading of RSO Configs directly from the mods

Hi, While I love RSO, i find it a bit irritating that people have to badger you in order to add their configs for their new mods, however I have found a simple elegant solution to the problem. Instead of people having to badger you to do it, why not make RSO dynamically call each mod, and request th...

Re: Keeping track of all the things

Just to answer your question of when does "on_entity_cloned" happen.

This will be when the player uses the Cloning Tool on the Editor, you can activate the editor on any game with /editor in the console, however it may disable achievements.

Could you listen to the raised event "on_entity_damaged" (https://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/events.html), check the player against some global table for per-player damage values and then damage the target via code to make up for the difference?
