Re: Friday Facts #339 - Beacon HR + Redesign process

... Personally I find the image with "max occlusion/collision box" much more appealing, especially the version that is not red. https://cdn.factorio.com/assets/img/blog/fff-339-tower-in-a-hole.png The absence of color makes it look more clean, so any subtle lightning on it would be easy t...

Re: Decoration remover

I'd want the dectorio-style decoration remover (as a crafted tool or not, with a research requirement or not)... ...but none of the other recipes in dectorio. They're beyond VERY cluttery when trying to search some recipes for non-decoratives, I'd like to have a "bulk decoration removing optio...

Re: [0.17+] Central Rails

0.18.0 is up. A few known bugs but the thing is much faster.

0.18.1 is in progress. Not sure how many are still on 0.17 so the next release will have a .17 version as well.

Re: event when player enters area

I've done exactly that in a mod to generalise it. My testing shows I can have a large enough number using this approach with much lower UPS requirements than what I was doing previously.

Map editor - how to use named areas/positions and Lua scripts section

Hi, I'd like an event to fire when a player enters an area in the world or steps on a tile. Possibly I can do this using "named areas" via the map editor. I'm currently doing this via a handler that watches where the player moves (on_player_changed_position). How exactly do I use named are...

Re: event when player enters area

No idea. I was able to use the map editor to create areas but actually detecting what happens afterwards is not obvious to me. The wiki page for the map editor says its "easy" but doesn't say anything after that. I can't find an event in lua-api.factorio.com relating to named areas. I'd be...

event when player enters area

Why I'm building a scenario to teach people how to play in various ways. One of the aspects is detecting when a player walks/drives into particular areas. There's a bunch of these areas. Right now there's around 30 of them. How I'd like some way to have an event triggered when a player enters an are...

Re: IR in 0.18

Personally if I was at this stage, I'd delegate it to someone else and then go learn guitar for a month or two. Klonan has volunteered to do maintenance-only so you should seriously consider his offer. Others can likely deal with bugfixes under his guidance if necessary. This approach would mean eve...

Re: Please make a mod

I want ask - can anyone make mod to filtering chests like inventory of train? Do you want a chest that reserves slots for items using filters? The intention being you could have one chest set up to reserve some portion for eg iron plate and the rest for copper. Or whatever. You might reserve a slot...

Re: game.write_to_clipboard

Importing things from a file or a players clipboard isn't doable because it would break determinism in multiplayer. There are other reasons as well, but that is the main one. Correct. The devs have already said this. File access in general systems can be made deterministic but its a world of pain g...

Re: game.write_to_clipboard

Files just aren't the same as the clipboard. Its as simple as that. Especially when you're exporting/importing blueprint-like structures. These are GUI operations. Much easier to explain to a room of kids how to export a blueprint etc than dig through the filesystem if that was the only way. I know ...

Re: game.write_to_clipboard

game.write_to_clipboard has a bunch of issues. Not sure if the benefits outweigh the annoyances. Better off just having another kind of GUIelement you can add where you can specify what you want copied to the clipboard. If the user clicks that button, it shows a factorio supplied window of its own s...
