[0.18.9] Bots repairing damaged enemies?

I am running 0.18.9. I have noticed that my robots are trying to repair the damaged enemies.

Re: New smelting entities - advice on approach

I am missing something that should be right in front of me :roll: I define the new entity, recipe and technology for "cdmo-stone-furnace": --define new entity local fn1 = table.deepcopy(data.raw["furnace"]["stone-furnace"]) fn1.name = "cdmo-stone-furnace" fn1.icon = "__cdmo__/graphics/icons/stone-fu...

Re: New smelting entities - advice on approach

I have made the new entities using the deep copy step.
Next is to figure out the data.raw change to redirect a vanilla ore from vanilla burner to my custom burner

Re: New smelting entities - advice on approach

Yes deepcopy. Recipe: change name and result Item: change name and place_result Entity: change name and minable.result Best practice is to add a prefix to the name to avoid incompabilities with other mods. I.e. "trblz-dirty-furnace" What does item.place_result do? Wiki mentions "Name of prototype/E...

New smelting entities - advice on approach

I want to make a copy of the vanilla smelters to tweak some settings (extreme pollution). What is the best way to do this? Do a deep copy of data.raw and then update some values (like pollution rate, graphics and research)? How do I assign a modded item only to work for the new entities and not the ...

Re: Add Game Difficulty setting in Vanilla - Easy/Normal/Difficult

Most of the suggested difficult options would be quite incompatible with the lower tiers and therefore make multiplayer matchmaking harder and more exclusive. I even think, that newer players would be more hinderd by such changes, too get in touch or learn from more expirienced players. Although ha...

Re: Add Game Difficulty setting in Vanilla - Easy/Normal/Difficult

I like the current Setting for the reason i can choose what i want for my game experience. There is always a learning curve in every game and i fail to see how easier recipes would change that. For me an easy recipe like basic oil processing (crude in, petroleum out) means I don't have to think abo...

Add Game Difficulty setting in Vanilla - Easy/Normal/Difficult

TL;DR Add Game Difficulty setting in Vanilla - easy, normal, difficult What ? In the recent FFFs, there have been a lot of improvements suggested/implemented in the game to make the learning curve less steep for new players. Examples are the anti-fluid mixing changes ( FFF-312 and before), the Oil ...

Re: Friday Facts #312 - Fluid mixing saga & Landfill terrain

I'm more concerned about the "perfectly grid aligned" aspect of the pattern. Looks like 4 mini-tiles per tile, perfectly parralell to normal tiles. Maybe it'd help to turn the grid 45°? or make the lines a bit more wavy. I like your idea so I just made a quick mockup to test it out. Here's 45° with...

Following your comment about probability in the 0 - 1 range If i use: results = { {type="item", name="main-product", probability=0.8, amount=1}, --this is the main product with 80% probability to succeed {type="item", name="by-product1", probability=0.2, amount=1}, {type="item", name="by-product3", ...

Re: Recipe output probabilities - how does it work?

I am using the mod library as a bases for my own changes. The good thing of this lib is that i don't have to create a full library of new items. The recipes are added through the following procedure (in recipe.lua) function apm.lib.utils.recipe.result.add_with_probability(recipe_name, result_name, r...

Recipe output probabilities - how does it work?

I want the output of my recipe products to work as followed using probabilities. Here's an example where the main product has 80% probability ("chance to succeed") and 20% probability to fail. results = { {type="item", name="main-product", probability=0.8, amount=1}, --this is the main product with ...

Machines can not influence the content of a recipe (except for speed/productivity). They merely "execute" it, so you'll have to use a different recipe category + recipe prototype for each "chance level".
hmm....ok - thanks for confirming this.

Assembly Machine - Recipe and output probabilities

I am working on a mod where all machines will create waste/scrap. Its a twist on Amator Phasma's Recycling mod The idea is that all machines/smelters will produce waste/scrap and depending on the machine level, the chances for waste/scrap goes down but never to zero. The vanilla formula for green ci...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

Here's my approach/2 cents: in the attempt to make Factorio easier for beginners, I am afraid you're loosing some of the more experienced players. Simplifying the oil production or Pipes should work like electricity. All of these make it easier and more predictable for beginners. However for a more ...
