Re: /colour command as an alise to /color

Yes, I agree that it would be best to add /colour as an alias for /color , since the scripting system seems to already support aliases. Therefore, it should not be too much work. My previous post about banning the UK spelling was not serious, even if I personally prefer the US spelling. Some games,...

Re: /colour command as an alise to /color

If aluminum is prounounced al-u-min-ium, do you also say nium-ber? niumeric? niumbskull? (it's alu-min-um) Okay, here's a fun one: Do you say coppernicum? Magnesum? Calcum? Sodum? Indum?

Re: Need help to make my mod work again

I've taken another look at your mod, and i think everything should be working now. (updated version attached) What have i changed?: - Changed the info.json to factorio version 0.15, and changed the version number of the mod. - I've taken out the item.lua and demo-item.lua, as the copying of item tre...

Re: Make robots better at placing tiles

Yeah, at least making them default to 9 tiles, 3x3, should be implemented.
Plus, the UNGODLY lag 25k robots produce when being told to cover an entire factory... T_T

Re: Watercraft

I feel like some sort of watercraft or air vehicle would be useful. Any kind, either personal like the car or for transport like trains, and would add more realism to Factorio and attract more players. This, and maybe add a wooden boat to starting player inventory, in case of 4x4 tile island spawn....

Re: Altering respawn points (medcenter)

I don't think that's a bad idea, actually An addition would be for individual players to create their own respawn-terminal. (edit: for multiplayer support, specifically pvp. :3) However, i'm not sure whether i like the "pick where you want to go" concept, as i can see players stripping the...

Player Inventory Width Setting/Value

TL;DR Make default inventory width of 10 items per row changeable in menu, or add "inventory_width" value to data.raw["player"]["player"]. What ? Add an option to the menu, maybe under graphics, that sets the row width of player inventory. Turn this: Example-1.png Into...

Re: Need help to make my mod work again

Hi, just wondering whether your problem still persists. :)
If yes, what version of factorio are you attempting to update your mod to?

If you've already fixed it, you can just ignore this. :3

Re: Player inventory width?...

Okay, the longer i keep digging in style.lua, the longer i'm starting to think inventory width is not specified in style.lua, which, thinking about it, would have been a bit odd anyways. I think i've look through all of the core code, and a good amount of the base code, but i can't find anything an...

[GIVEN UP (for now)] Player inventory width?...

I've been playing around with a bunch of mods, some of my own, and my inventory has somehow become large enough for me to have to scroll through it. (+/-450 slots... don't ask.) I've got 3 massive monitors, i always play on 80% GUI size, and i have this really long, 10 slots wide, inventory with a s...

Re: control.lua script question?...

You can use _on_configuration_changed. it get's called whenever anything in your mod files changes, which means that you can use it to execute things "on load" for mod testing purposes, since your mod almost always changes when you reload the game. Oh, that's actually pretty useful! Right...

Re: control.lua script question?...

You are using on_load incorrectly, it does not and should not access any game objects secondly on_load isnt a game event, so no 'event' field will be present, so event.player_index will give you an error So you should use on_init or on_player_created Yeah, but the point is that on_player_created do...
