Introducing FactorioBin - the fastest, easiest way to share your blueprint strings (alternative to Pastebin / etc)

Hey everybody! Lately, I think we all have been frustrated with the fact that Pastebin has deleted or restricted access to many Factorio blueprints, even if you are logged in. They've done this retroactively too, which means a lot of blueprints are lost forever. I really liked the simplicity of shar...

Re: Make "sync mods" button larger and more noticeable

I've heard from players who switch often between modded and unmodded saves, and are frustrated that the Load button only prompts them about specific types of mod mismatches, while the small, hard-to-miss, Sync Mods button handles all the scenarios. In particular, their pain was around accidentally l...

[kovarex] [1.1.25] Placing a map-interactible entity from map view opens entity's GUI when Drag Map is rebound.

This bug can be triggered reliably by rebinding Drag Map, which is something I know players sometimes will do in order to be able to drag an artillery remote on map view to spam-fire at dense biter nests. Steps to reproduce with a fresh install of 1.1.26 on Win64 (unzipped standalone copy of the gam...

Math time: binomial distributions in splitter pyramids, and the effects of splitter biases

Introduction I got to wondering about splitter pyramids. You know, these contraptions you might build the first time you're trying to split a belt into 6 to load into a train wagon: example.png Splitters alternate sending items right and then left. The first item arriving at a newly placed splitter...

[Rseding91] [1.0.0] enemy force's ghost entities are visible on player force's map view

entity-ghosts that belong to the enemy force are not visible to the player in the main world, but they are visible (drawn in red) in map view. I believe this changed recently, with the big 0.18.x blueprint update which started drawing ghosts in map view. It's probably the case that enemy ghosts shou...

Lua access to map view's base-layer data (the 1 pixel per tile stuff, e.g. belts = 1 yellow pixel)

I'm looking to build a mod that can export the map view representation of a base for a feature similar to https://factoriomaps.com I'm not looking to replicate exactly what is on a user's screen - instead, I'm looking for the underlying chunk-level imagery upon which the rest of map view's features ...

Way to assign trees to forces other than neutral

Currently, it seems that all entities with type "tree" are hard-locked to the "neutral" force (if placed with other forces in /editor it ends up being neutral anyways, and assigning a new value to LuaEntity.force does not work as it does for other types of entities). Is it possib...

[0.18.36] Empty blueprint books give malformed value when I "Export to string"

Vanilla, 0.18.36, no mods, tried on both MacOS and Windows builds. This is admittedly a minor issue, and it's possible the upcoming changes to blueprints talked about in FFF-356 will render this obsolete, but here we go: It seems that at least one other user "in the wild" has run into this...

Re: [0.16.51] Inserters do not remove burnt fuel from burner assembling machines

Thanks Zavian and Darkfrei, it looks like this won't be addressed any time soon. I'll try out that modded inserter for pulling burnt fuel and see if it's something I want add as a dependency for my mod, or just give up on burner fuel for my machines.

Re: [0.16.51] Inserters do not remove burnt fuel from burner assembling machines

Thanks, but that doesn't work either (added image + mod + save to my post above). I think that "spent fuel" spot is special for reactors and may not be something inserters know they can pull from for assembling machines.
