Sorry for complaining so much.
Perhaps the documentation should mention that the force is also provided in event interface.
Good spot, I fixed the docs for the next release.

Re: New API Docs website

On the main page (https://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/index.html) the Classes header isn't clickable, but the Events header further down the page is.

Re: Small documentation improvement requests

I just wanted to make a quick note on all the Position conversation: I agree that it's all a pretty big mess at the moment. The fundamental issue is that read and write have to have the same type in the docs, even when they don't behave the same, so you end up with confusing concepts that try to en...

Re: Small documentation improvement requests

Silari is right in this case, I actually put that x/y line there myself pretty recently. The whole situation isn't great, it's on my list to come up with a better solution to it, but the underlying issue is that it's just inconsistently implemented in the APIs, sometimes it's one way, sometimes the ...

Re: [MOD 0.10.x] Trailer Mod

I attached the mod to this message for those that are interested. The script likely won't run though since it uses some non-release API calls. But the map should be able to be migrated step by step to a recent release.

Re: [Doc] JSON version of lua-api documentation

That is great! Unfortunately not retroactive, but awesome fo the future. Can we have such a json output for prototype definitions as well (even though they are only in the wiki and mostly manually updated)? I'd have liked to make it work retroactively, but unfortunately getting this to work well re...

Re: LuaEntity::get_recipe() subclasses

You're right, probably best to be explicit. Fixed for the next release.

The whole 'Can only be used if' system is kind of bad in general though, it's due for a re-do at some point I feel like.

LuaEntity::get_recipe() subclasses

https://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/LuaEntity.html#LuaEntity.get_recipe Works on a ghost of a crafting machine. Not sure if it is intentional or not (there is no other obvious way to check the recipe on a ghost), but it works. get_recipe() and previous_recipe don't do anything on a blueprint of a f...

Re: What is the difference between discrete_slider and discrete_values in a LuaGuiElement slider?

From my testing, discrete_slider does not do anything at all, only the value of discrete_values matters. The solution is to remove it from the API, but as that's a breaking change, it's a bit more of a delicate affair. I'll see about that though. I noticed this a while ago, but documenting it as 'th...

Re: [Therenas][1.1.32] Documentation inconsistency: Is `player.gui.screen` a flow or empty-widget?

Thank you for the report. top, left, center and goal are indeed flows, while screen and relative are empty-widgets. The docs have been updated to reflect this for the next release.
