Re: Unable to deconstruct entity that lacks a paired item

I've changed it for the next version of 0.16 so an entity that's mineable but doesn't have an item-to-place can still be deconstructed. This no longer seems to be fixed in 1.0. I remember that 0.16 worked as expected and entities that were minable without a paired item could be deconstructed by the...

Add on_player_preview_blueprint event

Currently, factorio provides on_player_setup_blueprint and on_player_configured_blueprint. on_player_setup_blueprint - fires befores the blueprint is created, and includes metadata about the selected area on_player_configured_blueprint - fires after the blueprint preview gui was shown to the player,...

Re: Unable to deconstruct entity that lacks a paired item

You can define an entity as mineable but have no result. The reason entities can't be deconstructed is they share a check with blueprintable in that it must have an item that builds the entity to be deconstructed. I don't think that is strictly required so I'll look into changing it to allow decons...

This is a known issue with Factorio that I have discussed with Rseding, but there's no timeline for the changes to fix this.

Re: Unable to deconstruct entity that lacks a paired item

This is how I handle blueprinting and deconstructing and deconstructing a combined entity in nanobots. Might help a little bit in figuring out ways to make it work. Good to know, but my main question is about understanding how the deconstruction planner actually works. I'd at least at like to under...

Re: Friday Facts #191 - Gui improvements

Words can not say how in favor of these improvements I am. I'm definitely on the "long time player" side of the equation, and I am constantly frustrated and re-organizing the toolbelt because it gets out of whack. The proposed changes are a massive quality of life improvement.

Re: Factorio Standard Library Project (link)

That was in control.lua that it failed in. I would love data.lua ability though. DOnt think data has the ability to write though It does (albeit to factorio-current.log and not a custom location). Until game is present (after init or load) all logs are queued up. New logs won't be printed out until...

Unable to deconstruct entity that lacks a paired item

I am confused about how the deconstruction planner works. I have an entity that is a slightly modified deepcopy of the radar entity. No essential fields are modified. It has no associated item, which is intentional, because the entity is only spawned by control.lua scripting. As a result of this, it...

Re: [MOD 0.15.0+] Big Brother 0.4.0 - Radar & Surveillance

I have noticed something strange - after adding latest version to map all radars have red power sign blinking when in detailed info mode. Any idea what might be causing this? Yes - it was due to an invisible entity that is used to make blueprints work. I was making it require no power, and apparent...

Could you possibly move this to it's own github repository?

No pressure if you don't want to, but it would make things conve...

As an FYI for concerned modders, early testing has not revealed any compatability issues with the current release of the standard library and Factorio 0.15. You should be able to continue to use the current release of 0.8.0 safely with Factorio 0.15. Work on the next release with a number of bug fix...

Re: [Short article] Can X-Ypoint be described by only one coord?

It looks like you have already solved the problem satisfactorily - but I've faced this exact question and also had a fairly similar solution. I too used the bit32 library, and packed the x,y coordinates into a 10 bit integer value. If you consider that each in-game chunk is 32x32, that means you can...
