Re: Unable to login to Mod Portal

Another observation: I was still logged in on my desktop computer, and everything works as expected there. But I still can't log in or search from my laptop, where I logged off some days ago. Of course, I had to update my video driver before noticing these issues. Now I'd need to restart my computer...

Re: Purchasing game from website

I think you need to be logged in to your Factorio account to play multiplayer but I never play multiplayer so I don't know the details. There's always the possibility to play multiplayer in a LAN -- without connecting to Factorio. (Although strictly a singleplayer user, I know that from testing my ...

Re: Unable to login to Mod Portal

Perhaps unrelated, but searching for a mod doesn't work anymore either! I searched for a particular mod, but just got a list of the most recently updated mods.

Re: Unable to login to Mod Portal

Same thing just happened to me. When I used the correct password on the mod portal, it was accepted but "Log in" still remained on top of the page. After using a wrong password deliberately, I've got a complaint "username and password don't match".

Re: Question about train stations and cricut network!

So i used the method to enable the second station but now there is a problem where, when the first train leave the second train goes the the first station. Whi...

Re: Some new signals

A) make a circuit that counts the number of ticks for day and night. See wiki for exact numbers. How would you prime that thing? Can you get the current game.tick somehow? Sure, you can make a clock (a counter resetting itself after x ticks), but what if you build it in the middle of the day? Most ...

Re: Blacklist for prototypes turrets shouldn't attack

I think this is excellent use case for trigger-target-type and trigger_target_mask (https://forums.factorio.com/71657) I must have missed those before… So for 0.18.33 I added, attack_target_mask and ignore_target_mask to turret prototype. Excellent! I never thought this would be added so quick, so ...

Blacklist for prototypes turrets shouldn't attack

I'd like to prevent that water turrets can attack certain entities. Currently, if an entity (character/unit-spawner/turret) or unit from an enemy force is in range of a water turret, this water turret will attack it. Let's say I don't want water turrets to attack spawners and worms. Currently, I lis...

Allow character entities to be teleported to another surface

TLDR: Allow teleporting character entities to another surface iff teleporting entities comes with less overhead than generating new ones. Why? This would allow at least two mods to perform better. What? I've recently discussed with Earendel how AAI Programmable Vehicles and Autodrive work. Both mod...

Ah okay - screen shot that is.
If you only want to post an error message, just copy the text from factorio-current.log! That not only saves bandwidth and storing space, it also is more useful to modders because they can directly copy search-strings from your posting. :-)

Not to mention that the bottleneck indicators are now made redundant by the built-in indicator on the new miner model.
I thought these new indicators were only in the new miners? So bottleneck would be redundant just for them, not for assemblers, furnaces, etc. Is that correct?

Re: Version 0.18.31

i've seen mods on github that changed their main folder name's number each version, effectively moving ALL their files to a folder of a different name, which seemed incredibly stupid*/screen-space-wasteful regarding any later version comparison. To me, it makes sense to let the folder inside the zi...
