Re: Alt-F4 #53 - Laziness through Automation

From the point of view of maximum laziness; reuse the screenshot layouts for main menu scenarios and/or test cases?

Also, I think there's an option to tell factorio to load a map then run for n ticks; though I don't know if you can use graphics in that mode.

Re: Targeted/Directional Radars

Two methods I know of to nearly do what you're describing; fire artillery where you're exploring, or the scanning radar mod; it allows you to describe minimum and maximum range, and start and end angle from the radar.

Re: Mod request/idea - Water strider

So... a spidertron with floaties (pontoons, I guess), or perhaps one with really long legs?

Re: on_player_placed_equipment by mod/player

Edit: To actually address the topic: I suspect that one reason to want to know if the event was raised by a script is to avoid two scripts duelling over what precisely should be in the equipment grid or not. I assume that that's a large part of why the script_raised events exist. --- At least in 0.1...

Re: on_player_placed_equipment by mod/player

Perhaps an optional player field in on_equipment_inserted, if nil, it wasn't a player?

Do note that an inserter can... insert equipment into a grid under the correct conditions.

Re: Six legs good, Eight legs bad!

I like spiders; they tend to eat all the other creepy-crawlies.

In terms of a practical solution, replacing the leg graphics with empty graphics seems the most compatible solution for multiplayer.

Perhaps a zip file of empty png files to overwrite the base graphics?

Re: Guidelines for matching the game's art style?

One of the FFFs suggested that the graphics are first rendered, and then possibly distressed, and then for icons, the individual mipmaps tweaked to look good. The impression I get is that Factorio buildings tend to be weathered, while Angel's, and even more so Pyanodan's, are shiny and new, as if th...

Re: A new prototype type to describe compound entities?

I think you would basically need the equivalent of, or perhaps precisely, a blueprint string to make that work, including the ability to specify sub-tile locations, circuit connections, etc.

A freetext "tag=" on PrototypeBase would be sufficient.
Ah, but what if you want to make something magic in two ways; if you have just one tag, only one value can be associated; you could also do a set of tags, so this thing is interesting to mod 1 and mod 2.

A new prototype type to declare magic entities?

It would be useful to be able to declare that a given entity is magic (has additional behaviour that is supplied by a control script), so that if a mod creates a derived entity, it too can be flagged as being magical, without requiring explicit support in both mods. something like: data:extend{ { ty...

A new prototype type to describe compound entities?

It could be useful to have a new prototype that can encode the components of a compound entity (one where a proxy object is built, and immediately replaced with a set of other entities). As an example use-case, it is not possible to create a Battery powered Cargo Ship without explicit support from b...

Re: Playing on the net of a cube.

The main reason why is someone (not particularly seriously) suggested playing on the surface of a 4D object, which I don't think it would be feasible to represent with a 2D map, so I tried to think of what could be feasibly implemented, and I think you could implement a cube. You can only implement ...

Re: Rail SIGNAL Bridge mod?

I imagine what you'd need is something of a cross between a rail signal (so you can place them next to rail), a power pole (graphically) and an underground belt, for the behavior and cost. I'm guessing the signalling would ideally be configurable, but it would probably work acceptably well to only s...

Playing on the net of a cube.

It might be feasible to implement playing on the surface of a cube, by unrolling the surface into its net. At any point in time, the map would look something like the following, where the player's position is a the centre of the cross (the 2 surfaces). 3 1265 4 If the player were to walk off the edg...
