Re: Endless crash while loading blueprint storage

36.106 Error BlueprintShelf.cpp:631: Loading cloud blueprint storage failed: Corrupt map: unknown entity prototype ID (old 688, new 0). Looks like you're using the blueprint cloud sync feature, which IIRC makes Factorio load it from a different place than normal. Wiki doesn't say it but I believe i...

Re: Request/Search: Beacon affecting Burner Drills+

Not sure how that'd ruin balance, since you shouldn't be using any of those by the time you've got modules going - the electric versions are generally better. Miner at least is better in every way IIRC. Quick search brought up https://mods.factorio.com/mod/StoneAge_affecting_Beacon which seems to be...

Re: [1.1.59] Interface scaling to 200% on 1440x900 creates issues

Really difficult to find the config file and change the interface setting back to normal. It's downloaded through Steam. Thought the path would be: \Library\Application Support\Steam\steamapps\common\factorio\ then into the Contents folder, but i can't find the config file there.. Help :-) Per the ...

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

Is it possible to see which fuel is currently being burned inside a train? For the tank and the car, it's indirectly showed by the acceleration speed percentage on the vehicle, being for example 100% or 180% or 250%. For trains there are some numbers too but not a simple percentage. I would prefer ...

Re: [1.1.59] Impossible to insert sufficient of non-stackable item

Does the spidertron remote actually have the non-stackable flag? Far as I can see it doesn't, just has stack size set to 1. The flag specifically disallows stacking in assembling machines, which a stack size of 1 doesn't.

Re: Small documentation improvement requests

I may be incorrect in my thinking, but this led me to believe that calling ".get_inventory(defines.inventory.character_main)" on say, a steel-chest, would give me an actual nil result. The defines are just a value soft coded into the game with a more human readable name. For defines.inven...

From a comment in the mods discussion board it sounds like it may have had a 1.1 release that was removed due to issues. Note the mod shows the last update was 1 year 4 months ago, but both the 0.18 downloads are two years old (and 1.1 was 16 months ago). Seems like the mod portal may not account fo...

Re: Factsim - A Factorio combinator simulator

You don't have the tkinter module installed in your python environment. It was included by default on Windows but that may have changed, and can depend on how you installed python. Look up how to install python modules for your setup and install the tkinter module.

Re: can armor equiment have no take_result?

Setting a value to nil in LUA is how you remove it from a table, thus making Factorio use the default. Sometimes an empty string works to signify nothing, but it looks like Factorio requires equipment to have a take_result. You can work around it a bit by using the on_equipment_removed event to remo...

Re: Coloring Cars (And other entities) Similar to Trains

Been a while since I messed with colors, but I don't believe it's possible to change the color of a car when someone is riding it - it's always the color of the driver. If the car is empty you can change it just fine, but it'll change once someone gets back in and stay that color until they get out ...

Re: negative bonus from research

On a whim, have you tried it when the forces speed bonus is already above 0% to see if the negative value works then? It might be a restriction on a net bonus of less than 0. Actually, just tried it out, and it works fine. Setting laser speed -10% after getting all the normal laser techs brings the ...

Re: on_player_died not working with other mods

As Pi-C said pre_player_died should work fine for what you're using it for. My first guess at the cause would be Space Exploration. It has to do some things when the player dies so it can show a menu to respawn either on the homeworld, nearest landing pad, or nearest spaceship. A quick check shows m...

Re: Idea: reduce pollution emitted by machines on floor tiles

With a stack of 5 or so, the building of tiles goes much, much faster. Seen like so, building muchos tiles is a task more for the endgame, not in the growth phase. It does not matter, that it goes faster - the tiles still get queued each one separately. Plop down a lot of flooring - watch repairs o...

Re: CloudSync blueprint ON by default

IIRC issues with it deleting blueprint libraries is why it isn't on by default. Steam's cloud sync isn't great, and even the save one loves to delete saves. As long as you have a save file from before the library was deleted you can still get your blueprints back: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtop...

As far as bots struggling with it, I wonder if Con bots should benefit more from the carrying capacity research that will allow them to pick up and then lay multiple items for construction instead of continuing with 1 at a time?
