Re: make more entity prototypes support rotation

Largely the issues with making something rotatable that the base game never needs to be rotated are: A) the entity code has to support it in a path base-game never runs (error prone) B) the entity needs to use more RAM to store the direction for every entity even when not used by the base game C) t...

Rotatable chests

It would be nice to have moded rectangular chests and still be able to rotate blueprints 90 degrees. It's a request to make mods work better without being an API request. Vanilla chests is quadrates so they don't need to be rotated but moded ones may need it. In particular I am planning to use the m...

Re: Stacksize in tooltip

I am also missing info about stacksize. It's a real problem when hanling trains in big modpacks as Pyanodons.

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

Considering the original post asks to notify about errors in this thread I've looked through it to help out... Yep, score = ((set1+set2+set3)/3) * (2/lanes) is the correct formula and it now also says so in the description. - Irregular power pole usage: We don't really have strict rules for include...

Re: Building train controll

Does this mod meet or miss any of your requirements? https://mods.factorio.com/mod/ShuttleTrainRefresh I have tried it and it didn't help much. I think "Train network for Players" is better. Both mods is more made for hiking on trains than using a dedicated building train. There is also o...

Re: Building train controll

I just have a train with 2 stations: Supply (5s inactivity) and Building (empty circuit condition). At Supply the train gets filled with building materials and wherever I want to build stuff I place a blueprint with the Building train stop. I can send the train back to Supply for more items, remove...

Re: 3 and 4 way intersections

It's hard to find the separete scores for the LHD and RHD versions. For me the LHD and RHD versions is separate designs and shoundn't be lumped together. Is it possible to filter by LHD and RHD? Maybe also spacing between the rails. I chose LHD/RHD and spacing after the intersections I design not th...

Building train controll

I am often using an dedicated building train and the controls and UI of Factorio is not done for that. A mod to fix that would be greatly appreciated. Features 1. Shortcut key to send the train to an dedicated "home"/restock station. So set the “Home” station in the schedule and set the tr...

Manganese oxide

I am playing Angels without bobs and all the overhauls enabled. I encountered a bug where the Manganese oxide recipe don't have any machine it can be made in. In an ore processor3 the recipe comes up but is red and if I try to select it it say can't be used in this mashine. I suspect it's the fluid ...

Re: [1.1.9] Roboports in vehicles don't work properly

One more confusing test
I used the decon planer to deconstr trees outside roboport range and drove into range and the bots worked!
Then placed a few ghost rails outside roboport and the bots didn't work. So the inconsistency with deconstr/constr wasn't that I only deconed trees inside the roborange.

Re: [1.1.9] Roboports in vehicles don't work properly

I was testing a little bit more. If you place a ghost in the construction area the bots builds directly. If you place the ghosts outside the building area and drive into range the bot's take a long time to realize they can build it. Then if you place more ghosts close to the old they only build the ...
