Re: Digital Display, Yay!

Thanks to the great DaveMcW 3×5 dot matrix design and posts with formula showing the "magic". Helps me a lot to understand how these things work! Based on the logic, I have expanded it as my 5×7 dot matrix design. The font is similar (if not exactly) to those used in many dot matrix calcul...

Re: I'll do Factorio style art for your mod for free!

@vintergron Thanks for your interest in contributing custom graphics. I am sure that the community will appreciate that. :D You may look for the subforum Texture Packs .

Re: LuaEntity::status to Locale text relations?

Wow, what a smart code! Thanks for that.
It waives the need of my explicit table, and auto-handles all possible changes. Exactly what I needed!

Though will need separate code to assign "status colours" to each status.
Looks easy enough, so no big deal.

[Solved] LuaEntity::status to Locale text relations?

Hi all, I want to write a custom GUI showing entity status of some selected entities. LuaEntity::status gives enum like "defines.entity_status.item_ingredient_shortage", which will actually be integers. On the other hand, the text I want to show is located in locale files under [entity-sta...

[1.0.0] Prototype/Car::minimap_representation

I found minimap_representation (and selected_minimap_representation) in Prototype/Car , so I tried to use that for my modded tanks. (Like how it is done on vanilla locomotives and Spidertron.) For example, I tried to apply a bigger triangle on my bigger tanks, and a smaller triangle on my smaller ta...

[1.0.0] Entity settings copy/paste does not work on Spidertrons

As titled. Entity settings copy/paste has no responses on Spidertrons (whether vanilla or modded), specifically: 1/ Copying/pasting inventory slot filters. 2/ Firing event on_entity_settings_pasted. I expect it would have work like the other vehicles (cars and tanks) or trains (locomotives, wagons).

[Rseding91] [1.0.0] Grid cannot be accessed in Locomotive with void energy source

Problem: Vehicle grids (introduced by mods) on train carriages are normally accessible, except for one case: an locomotive using "void" energy source. The "Fuel" tab is disabled with the tooltip saying "Locomotive doesn't need energy", making the grid inaccessible. Step...

Prototype/Gun::attack_target_mask & ignore_target_mask

I have read articles about target masks . Next I found out Prototype/Turret has attack_target_mask & ignore_target_mask, allowing a turret to not fire at blacklisted types. I want to request the same properties on either Prototype/Gun or within its attack_parameters. Spidertrons have auto-target...

Add Prototype/SpiderVehicle::color

Re: "spider-vehicle" prototype definitions

Big thanks to Bilka and Xorimuth!
That helps a lot in Spidertron modding.

I will explore about the relations between speed and legs length.
For now, I do not have further questions. 8-)

You would have to make a modding interface request if you want to read current progress. Somehow I have expected that... Just be sure not asking something already exist.
