Allow easier reordering of blueprint items in 1.0

If I open a blueprint book, the various blueprints in it are apparently fixed in a specific order. There's no easy way to rearrange them in version 1.0. Previous versions would let you insert a blueprint in between two existing blueprints, which was more than enough to allow pretty much any rearrang...

"Enchanted" mods can't autobuild electronic circuits

I was playing with the Enchanted set of mods (which are still a work in progress, admittedly) and it stopped being able to handcraft electronic circuits. It needs to convert raw wood to wood fiber, and there are two separate ways to produce that. Somehow it fails to find the path from building elect...

Re: Building doesn't show up in blueprints or when pressing Q

@Pi-C

I saw you mention in one of the mods that you were working on a new version. Is it close to ready? Maybe I could take a look and see if I can figure out the Q issue.

Building doesn't show up in blueprints or when pressing Q

There's a mod I've been playing, Natural Evolution Buildings / Enemies, where one of the buildings doesn't show up in blueprints or when pressing Q over the building. Artifact collector, in case anyone is familiar with the mod. What could cause a building to have such issues? The original mod author...

Re: [0.18.22] Launched artillery at bugs which couldn't path, game slowed down significantly

Glad to help. Hopefully it's useful. I think the pathfinder is going a bit crazy at this exact moment, but there is also some actual attacks happening, which might be a confounding factor.

[0.18.22] Performance hit for dropping objects when ground is cluttered

Another performance issue we found when playing the Natural Evolution mod is when large amounts of objects were placed on the ground. The mod brings back alien artifacts dropping when aliens die. When many artifacts drop on the ground at the same time, and there is no good location for them to drop,...

[0.18.22] Launched artillery at bugs which couldn't path, game slowed down significantly

Playing multiplayer with the Natural Evolution mods, we built a landfill bridge across most of a large lake and used artillery to bomb the bejeezus out of either a large island or an area with a connection that wasn't yet explored. The game slowed to 30 UPS for a while. The problem was especially ba...

Somehow make a shield upgrade research possible

I'm looking at various options for how to add a shield upgrade research mod to factorio. With help of some other commenters, I can think of a few possibilities. Each of them has a limitation which stops it from being used, though. I'd love to have a modding interface change which allows one of more ...

Re: Is it possible to alter an on_entity_damaged event?

To be clear, I'm looking to make a research where shields are more durable. So if they currently have a 10% bonus, the character in my example who started with 100 shields left would have soaked 110 damage with shields and only taken 90 hit points, whereas the character with 190 shields left would h...

Re: Is it possible to alter an on_entity_damaged event?

This is certainly a possibility. It has some difficulties, though. You can check the entity's grid to see if it has any shields equipped. From there, you can see if the shields have reached 0, which suggests the character just took damage. Unless you know what the starting shields were, though, you ...

Is it possible to alter an on_entity_damaged event?

Is there a way to intercept an on_entity_damaged event and change the amount of damage being dealt? I'm exploring various ways to implement a shield research mod to improve the strength of a shield, and one of the ideas I'm thinking of now is to change how much damage is dealt for an on_entity_damag...

Re: Dynamically create new items

No Not unexpected. Looking at the way the damage bonuses are calculated, it looks like that is applied by default without considering the weapon stats. For example, copper ammunition in Natural Evolution has the damage defined as { type = "damage", damage = { amount = 4 , type = "physical"} }, Ther...

Dynamically create new items

I've been trying to figure out how to implement a mod where you can research shield upgrades. So, for example, shield mk 2 would go from 150 hit points to 165, 180, etc. I'd like this to be an infinite research, so after 10 researches with this example the shield would have 300 hit points. As far as...

Re: Shield upgrade research

It sounds like your suggestion is basically to only apply the bonus when the shield is equipped. Would this work for existing armor / vehicles / other grids that have the upgraded shield? Also, it would be great to be able to show the bonus as part of the tooltip when hovering over the item, which w...

Shield upgrade research

I was thinking of working on a mod where researching shield technology upgrades your shields to soak more damage. Naturally, this would be much easier if a shield upgrade technology bonus already existed. Currently I think the only way to do it would be to find all existing shield items and replace ...

Whatever logic is used to select pumpjacks or drills when mods are available should work fine for water pumps as well.

Re: Calculate inserter arm positions only when the GPU or a mod wants them

It would be really, really useful, if we have a power sensor, which has a signal, that rises when power is not 100% satisfied. So we would have a chance to turn power off completely (switch) and save much cpu. This is actually quite easy to do. Have a counter circuit connected to a solar panel and ...

Re: Daylight sensor

Definitely had fun with it! I added an S-R latch and a pulse combinator so that it ticks once per day. I counted the number of ticks and added a constant for how many days I've been on the planet before starting the combinators. I combined it with this display: https://factorioprints.com/view/-LCBql...
