Re: non-static prototypes

I don't think that prototypes even exist as such as the game is running. You can't even access them during run-time. Instead, they're processed and turned into program objects that perform the grunt-work, and the behavior we see is due to the interactions of those objects. What you want is to be abl...

Mr. Fusion is cute, but may lead to legal trouble. I suggest a more unique-looking fusion reactor.

Re: [0.12.x] Burner Generator

Haven't had time to test this yet, but does it use Autofill ( https://forums.factorio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=1612 ) if available? Im not very experience with mod interfaces, but i think you can do it by loading the game with both mods enabled and typing this in the console: /c remote.ca...

Tar can have many sources. It can be made from petroleum, wood, or coal. All three of these are already available in the vanilla game.

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Bergius Process

The depiction of hydrogen in your mod is inconsistent with that depicted in the rest of Factorio. Hydrogen is coded white in the base mod (petroleum gas is symbolized as ethene, C2H4), so its best if your mod is consistent with that.

Re: [MOD 0.12.1] Supreme Warfare - 1.0.5

I think game.player is a shortcut for the console. The console knows who "player" is; a server script doesn't. PS, a script that uses game.players[1] as an alias for game.player is asking for only slightly less trouble as one that uses game.player β€” makes too many assumptions on who the co...

Your creative chest would be perfect for a quick-fill if I could quick-replace it with an ordinary chest and the ordinary chest would be completely filled with whatever the selected item is.

@orzelek There's a reason I said "I'm patient." I don't have to have the latest game right now, which would require a tuned gaming PC. There are too many games out there that claim to be the next big thing that, in the end, turn out to be the same ol', same ol'. I wait a while to see what ...

Wow, there is a lot of scaremongery misinformation about nuclear power in this thread. Yes.

One of the big advantages of nuclear is that, because the fuel has high ene...

Lots of people are willing to pay the premium for a 'just works' system, with excellent integration across the apple ecosystem. This. Never underestimate the power of 'It just works.'

Re: entity.id, a unique, persistent ID

You can do player == player2 to check if they're the same player. You can do anything == anything - inventory references, entity references, GUI references - they all work with the == operator. Across play sessions? Also, having entities be usable as keys is very, very handy. That way, I don't have...

Re: entity.id, a unique, persistent ID

This may not be necessary if entity references in the implementation do not change from load to load β€” in which case, entity.id already exists: this_entity.id == this_entity. Otherwise, it would be a great addition.
