Optimization/Partial Disabling of Prototype History

Greetings! Myself and others have noticed that my latest mod, Fractured World, when used with other mods, causes load times to get much worse than just the sum of the individual load times. In particular, any mods loading after mine would slow to a crawl. It was suggested that the prototype history ...

Re: [0.18.35] Command line: --generate-map-preview doesn't work with --preset

Also, using internal names does not seem to make any difference. Neither "island" nor "Island" will produce an island map.

[0.18.35] Command line: --generate-map-preview doesn't work with --preset

Greetings! This one is pretty simple: when trying to generate map previews via command line, the --preset arg is not used. I first came across this issue when attempting to generate previews to test my own map generation mod, and initially thought that it didn't work on mod-defined map gen presets. ...

[0.18.31] Missing "cannot build" entity sound

The "cannot build" entity sound, in utility sounds, does not play when it should in version 0.18.31. I discovered the issue when attempting to mod it, and was able to get confirmation from others that it was indeed broken. How to reproduce: attempt to build an entity in an invalid position...

Re: Fix noise.terrace(), or expose floor() and/or modf() to noise expressions

While we're at it, if-else-chain also seems to not work correctly. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/306402592265732098/718570030559920208/unknown.png Is there any insight as to why, or what it actually expects on the other end? The current workaround is doing nasty "multiply by 0 or 1&quo...

Re: Fix noise.terrace(), or expose floor() and/or modf() to noise expressions

As an extra interesting tidbit that points toward broken behavior, if you take the same code I posted above and set "strength" to 0, you get the following: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/306402592265732098/719059170740928582/unknown.png That is to say, instead of being 0 everywhere...

Fix noise.terrace(), or expose floor() and/or modf() to noise expressions

Greetings! While playing around with some noise expression stuff, I came across the same issue in this post: https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=83807&p=489988&hilit=mooman+terrace#p489988 . To illustrate what the terrace function is supposed to do given the code that was pr...

Move make_robot_particle() to lualib

As of 0.18, flying robots got some fancy new death animations. Unfortunately, any robots that are added or retextured by mods will not get this treatment automatically. Each mod that wants to use the "make_robot_particle()" function to generate those death animations currently has to copy ...

[0.17.79] Incorrect pump tooltip when pumping directly from offshore pump to fluid wagon.

When loading a fluid wagon with water directly from an offshore pump, the electrical pump incorrectly shows 2400 u/s as it's pumping speed. The offshore pump continues to show it's speed of 1200 u/s. Both of them cannot be correct, so I timed it, and got results consistent with 1200 u/s being the ac...

[17.62] Map Editor unable to deconstruct new campaign buildings.

What did I do? Placed the new campaign buildings while in the map editor, and attempted to deconstruct them, both by mining them and by deconstruction planner. What happened? None of the buildings could be mined. Only the Electricity Generator, Chests Capsules, and Repaired Lab responded to deconstr...

Re: Friday Facts #304 - Small bugs; Big changes

Based on what limited info we have now, my main concern now is wondering how many new (and old) players will now ask “What’s the point of light oil?” And I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with them for saying so. The solid fuel efficiency isn’t immediately obvious, and now might be insignificant compa...
