Re: Prototype property to restrict inserters to pick up from a single lane

Additional use case here: I’d like Beltlayer to be able to preserve which item is in which lane, but currently there isn’t a way to guarantee to pick up items from just one side of a belt without using expensive scripting, so I can’t know which lane an item came from to be able to restore it to the ...

[0.18.9] LuaEntity::splitter_filter doesn't accept LuaItemPrototype

The documentation for LuaEntity::splitter_filter indicates it's a read-write of LuaItemPrototype. Reading from this property does correctly return a LuaItemPrototype, but attempting to write one gives "string expected, got table". Writing with the name of the item prototype works correctly. Expected...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Miniloader

Just updated this to the 1.10 version and it breaks when bobs logistics is also enabled. This should be fixed in v1.10.2. It only happened when the Bob's Logistics option for Overhauled Transport Belts was turned off. Then I tried to load the game all mods disabled and only enabled the miniloader m...

Re: Extract current server player count

Do you run your server with RCON enabled? If so it's as simple as sending the "/players online count" command via the RCON interface.

Re: [MOD 0.16] Miniloader

Attached is the savefile. To your right is a miniloader that is not properly rotated. When hovering over it and pressing R to rotate it, the game crashes with the message above. Thanks for the report! This was caused by a mistake on my part allowing the Mining Drones to mine part (and only part) of...

You can use adaptive automatic rotation loader's code from https://mods.factorio.com/mod/LoadersAutorotation
Thanks. Miniloaders already has code to snap to adjacent belts which I can trigger during on_configuration_changed as a workaround if Wube decides not to change this behavior.

Out of curiosity, did you evaluate a 4-way d-ary heap? In practice it's usually faster for A-star searches due to better alignment with cache behavior.

[posila] [0.18.1] Migration of loader to loader-1x1 does not preserve loader_type

As in the title. Observe the cluster of miniloaders on the left. Each one is in "input" mode, with the belt on the outside of the cluster. Above the Load Game dialogue you can see the actual state after loading into 0.18.1: the loaders are now in "output" mode, with the same direction, with the resu...

Third, a question to rseding, if you can describe in a nutshell what the difference is between the event-subscriber pattern and the targeter pattern. It sounds like the same, just inverted. Instead of the subscription, the pointer to the target is deleted. Or is this the main difference? I believe ...

Re: Non-square non-1x1 inserter giving constant error

Seems like having certain prototypes completely unrelated to the inserter (e.g. data.raw.item-entity) with incorrect collision boxes also cause this error. Weird. Not that weird. As discussed: So taking "s" as the size of the "item-on-ground" entity (plus a floating-point rounding-compensation fact...

Observed behavior != expected behavior: The items on the lower lane of the belt are backlogging. (Rotate the LEFT miniloader, so that it stops unloading onto the belt, to get a clearer view of this behavior, while the belt empties.)
Are you running the latest version (1.8.3)?

Re: Add the ability to unset sprites on GUI elements

As a note, writing nil to a sprite or sprite-button gives an error. Writing empty string to a sprite clears the element, but writing empty string to a sprite-button does nothing.
