Re: Games Like Factorio

Factropy is in this space: https://dorfl.itch.io/factropy . Indie, WIP, free demo. Factory simulation genre tropes abound. Two parts Factorio, one part Satisfactory, a dash of Supreme Commander and a bunch of loose ideas a certain solo developer failed to mod into one of those games. The overall aim...

Re: [MOD 0.16] Miniloader

... ran into the uneven loading bug again. This may happen if you use a miniloader of one tier with a mis-matched belt tier. The inserter timings get unpredictable and I don't promise consistent results. Fwiw, attached is a minimal 0.18 sandbox save with miniloaders 1.9.3 that shows express miniloa...

[0.17.65] mod load spike for on_robot_pre_mined on blocked entities

This might be works-as-expected, but it confused me for a while and I couldn't see it described anywhere, so: I marked a rail depot for deconstruction before removing a train, so 25 robots went and sat waiting over 25 blocked rail segments -- as expected. But load from mods listening to on_robot_pre...

[0.17.59] LuaSurface.request_path crash

While playing around with the path finder, I found path_resolution_modifier = 8 caused a full process lockup and eventually a crash. Lower values work OK. I tried 8 only because UnitAISettings mentions an -8 to 8 range for an int8 parameter of the same name, and LuaSurface.request_path doesn't speci...

Re: [0.17] Bulk Teleporters

It looks more like a rendering issue, not due to a specific mod. See you have "Flip[on]" which is spiking up to 90ms. Try turning vsync off, close other applications, update graphics drivers, reduce sprite resolution, etc. Search this forum for other examples with this symptom (eg: https:/...

Re: [0.17] Bulk Teleporters

That save runs at stable 60 UPS here, but I only tested it for a few minutes (sounds like your lag is intermittent?).

Try looking at the F5 debug output when you see lag. If any mod shows significantly higher values than the others, it's probably the culprit.

Sorry for the delay. I want to do new graphics for this one, but it keeps falling down the to-do list. So this is a plain update of the 0.16 version.

What fuel is needed for teleporter to work? None, they're electric. The top-left interface is an electric furnace which automatically crafts hidden teleport recipes with cost and duration proportional to the teleport distance.
