Re: [1.1.42] Crash loading save: "Package lock (read) is active" on mod

Given the logfile message, I should add: to my knowledge, the mod zip file had never been opened by any application other than Factorio

[1.1.27] Event/property for playing a sound on selection-tool start selection

Hi, the built-in selection tools (upgrade planner, blueprint, etc.) will play a sound both when the player begins making a selection, and when the player finishes their selection. I would like to be able to match that functionality when implementing a generic selection-tool. I can play a sound when ...

Re: [1.1.19] Spidertron personal logistics setup not displayed

Ok, I fixed both issues for the next release. Awesome, thanks! Yep, there's no reason why that wouldn't work as a workaround. I've implemented it as part of my spidertron serialiser, so feel free to use the code here: 'Copy' https://github.com/tburrows13/SpidertronEnhancements/blob/master/scripts/s...

Re: [1.1.19] Spidertron personal logistics setup not displayed

I have new information. My mod is definitely related, however there may be an underlying Factorio bug as well. The reported bug can be reproduced without mods by hovering the mouse over a Spidertron and running this command in the chat window: /c game.player.selected.force = game.player.selected.for...

Re: Selection tool mode/filter for selecting only ghost entities

Hmm, I hadn't considered that. I guess for my purposes I'd want to include tile-ghost entities, I'm trying to select all the things that are awaiting construction by construction bots, which would include tile-ghosts.

Selection tool mode/filter for selecting only ghost entities

Hi, I'm trying to make a custom selection-tool that only selects ghost entities, but it doesn't seem to be possible. There doesn't seem to be any sort of "ghost-entity" selection mode , so instead I tried using the "any-entity" selection mode combined with an entity type of "...

Re: [0.18.8] Inserters do not recalculate logistic network connection when changing forces

Update: it's not just inserters, I am observing this behavior for all entities that can be enabled/disabled based on a logistic network condition:
  • Inserter
  • Transport belt
  • Mining drill
  • Pumpjack
  • Pump
  • Offshore pump
  • Power switch
  • Lamp
  • Train stop

[0.18.8] Inserters do not recalculate logistic network connection when changing forces

What did you do? I first observed this while debugging a bug report for my mod ( https://mods.factorio.com/mod/LogiNetChannels/discussion/5e422457bdb759000ce7b461 ), but I was able to reproduce it in a vanilla savegame. Repro steps: I set up a simple logistic network with a single roboport and a lo...

Re: Add events for when forces set friends/cease-fires

My use case is a little different in that I want to make diplomacy changes in response to other diplomacy changes. And AFAIK there are currently ...

Add events for when forces set friends/cease-fires

Hi, I'm just getting into modding, and the API seems to be lacking events for when a force sets a new friend/cease-fire. Something like on_force_cease_fire_changed, on_force_friend_changed, maybe? In my mod, I am trying to create and manage 'sub-forces' that have mutual friend and cease-fire with th...

[0.17.62] Worms attack starting area prior to evacuation

Hi, I noticed in this version of the NPE, the biters jumped the gun a little bit and went and made worms around my starter base before I had a chance to finish packing up. Is this intentional? I'm not necessarily opposed - the pressure makes it feel more real - but I remember last time I played it, ...

So this is Factorio, neat! I'm going to try out the campaign! Sweet, the shipwreck had electronic circuits. No idea what those do, but they seem important! I'm going to put them in a wooden chest for safe keeping. I'll put the chest right here, near the iron ore patch. [a little while later] F#$&am...

Re: Friday Facts #225 - Bots versus belts (part 2)

Players would still be able to build robot only factory, belt only factory or combination of those, but the strongest strategy would be to combine all types of transport, each for the part where they are the strongest. I like this as a goal. One problem that I think needs to be addressed is that bo...
