Re: LuaItemStack Rotation access

I'm not sure what code your'e running but you only need to edit the blueprint in the players hand directly and it will retain any custom rotation value it had. Don't clear() it and then insert() a new one - just edit the blueprint entities directly. I realize that. Except, I want to use the numberp...

LuaItemStack Rotation access

So, I'm currently working on a blueprint editor. https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=97&t=53634 And I've hit a bit of a brick wall with this one. To the point where I've searched through the forums, checked the documentation, checked the hidden docs, and all I could, but didn't find anything...

Re: [WIP][0.15.37+?] Blueprint Editor 0.1.0

So, there's good news, and there's bad news... I can stop rotating back, and keep it in the toolbar. But the numpad keys (appear to) change which corner they bind to. I also can't track which way the blueprint in the hand is rotated I can apparently track when something in the hand changes, and prob...

Re: Changeable Anchor Points for Blueprints

Open Map, u can place BP from MAP view. I never have a problem to ghost a BP with this solution. There's a limit to how much you can see when you zoom out in map view. If your blueprint is bigger than that zoom level, it's difficult to accurately place it. With this, you can align it with a corner ...

version 0.1.5 posted https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Bigfootmech/BPEdit/downloads You should now be able to use NUMPAD keys as well to do the same thing (move anchor point).

Re: Changeable Anchor Points for Blueprints

Well, that was fast/east

0.1.4 Added ability to "select" entity.

It's clunky, but it works.

You can now "select" any single entity on a blueprint (TAB), then hit CAPSLOCK to make it the anchor (blueprint placeable around it)

Next up: trying to tackle the corners issue

Re: Changeable Anchor Points for Blueprints

It was easier than I thought. Added a way to demonstrate the functionality in BPEdit 0.1.3 https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Bigfootmech/BPEdit Currently, you must add a new element, to be able to "anchor", or "centre" to it. In this particular vein, I want to add functionality to - Be able to select a...

Re: Changeable Anchor Points for Blueprints

Sounds good to me too. Though I hadn't thought about how to implement it. eradicator A possibly easier-to-implement solution would be to simply allow selecting one of the entities in a BP as the "anchor entity", marked e.g. in red, by middle mouseclick in edit mode.

I'm doing something similar. I may implement a "run around inside blueprint" way, way down the line.

Re: [15.34]Error printing tables. Repeatable. Any mods. Any save

@eradicator Tried the command, but it didn't work off the bat. I've seen serpent, but couldn't make heads or tails of it (maybe it's an ouroboros). Any case, I've read other stuff to the effect of "don't rely on player being static" or something. So I'm working with that. I also have a... let's say ...
