Re: Mod download security?

Thank you robot256 very much for this excellent and exhaustive answer!! Now I am able to trust all the mods I am playing both in single mode and in multiplayer! I don't think Factorio ever downloads mods from a game server. It downloads a list of mods to retrieve from the official mod portal. If the...

Mod download security?

I have heard that the factorio game is "sandboxing" mod code.

But still I want to ask the question:

How safe are you from viruses and malware when downloading mods from a public server when you do not know who started it?

(I am using MacOS)

Re: [1.1.45] Blueprints lost after up- and then downgrade of base game

That the game forces users to have knowledge of this procedure 2 a-d (which they do not) is really user unfriendly. Really something they should fix. The fix is to not downgrade your game, it's not supported. They've already done more than they needed to by backing up the old one. No that is not th...

Re: [1.1.45] Blueprints lost after up- and then downgrade of base game

I'm having the same problem. Was playing 1.1.45 and reverted to 1.1.42. Steam cloud sync is off. Copied blueprint-storage-backup.dat to blueprint-storage.dat. Regardless if I start a new game, load an older 1.1.42 map, or join a multiplayer 1.1.42 map, I get this popup. Loading blueprint storage fa...

Re: [1.1.45] Blueprints lost after up- and then downgrade of base game

Yes the blueprints for 1.1.42 was lost!! I cannot run the game with my BPs on 1.1.42 any longer. Do we players really need to go into the filesystem before doing an upgrade and manually backup the blueprint file so we can return to the original version and play with blueprints again? I think you did...

[1.1.45] Blueprints lost after up- and then downgrade of base game

After running to latest experimental of the base game, I tried to back the base game to 1.1.42 where my single player game is, but then dispite this I lost all my blueprints when opening the blueprints after downgrade (1.1.45 -> 1.1.42). The game said it was making a backupfile. But the 1.1.42 BP li...

Re: Better MOD list admin help when loading saved games

But the "Continue" button does not pop up that warning screen. I think that it should.

I think that all game loads/starts should pop up that mod-sync-warning message before continuing when there is a mismatch in the mod list. I think this would be a great feature for the 1.1 release.

Why don’t you look at it for yourself?
Yes great idea. Now I tested the "Sync mods with save" button. It shows me both what is missing and what is added! Great result! This is what I was looking for. :D

Does this button "Sync mods with save" give me a diff list so I can manually adjust my mod list?
Yes.
So it tells me if I have too many mods enabled too?

Better MOD list admin help when loading saved games

When for instance switching from AngelsBobs to vanilla and then back again to my AB game, I would love to get some help from the game, so I easily can get exactly the same list of mods activated as I had last time when I saved the game. Currently it seems like I get help on missing mods that I do no...

Re: I lost a large blueprint book due to bug

I do not remember that I did with the cursor at that time. I have now checked again my inventory, the ground where I was standing, and my BP library. The book is nowhere to be found. Why should a blueprint be able to change place with a book in the first place so the book only gets stored on the cur...

I lost a large blueprint book due to bug

I made a new blueprint. Then I wanted to add that new BP to my BIG blueprint book so I opened B and did as I have done before "dropped it over the book". But the effect was not the expected that my new BP was inserted into the book instead it replaced my book in that slot. And now my book ...

Re: Friday Facts #344 - Tile transition collisions & Team Steelaxe speedrun record

How does an external program get events from the factorio game so it knows when to split? The runner needs to make the splits (= press the split key), Factorio does not have an autosplitter. I guess that there is no technical issue with creating a factorio mod, that times a speed run the same way (...

Re: [0.17.43] Insert one item from hand on Mac

I think that "Drop item" in the Factorio control settings either should change name to "Drop/insert item" and/or get a little help bubble explaining its dual use. (Not intuitive really)

YES THAT WORKS! (same way on Mac; no difference) I did not realize that it was possible to "Drop item" (default "z") into an Assembling Machine. I thought that it only was possible to "Drop item" onto the ground. Thanks a lot for the support (been wondering this for a y...
