Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Endless Miner

My mod was not updated for the update that changed (removed) onsave and onload events. I have noticed a very similar mod that is currently available: https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... 11#p121186. I may update this mod later (I'm thinking 13.x) but will decide later.

I created and coded an item i call "Endless Miner". It slowly makes iron/copper/coal and lots of stone. It runs on concrete. I wanted a graphic that looked like a cave with a belt coming out of it.

Re: Feedback appreciated about mod concept

Thank you! Also I found the {0.5} should be just 0.5 for the insert_at LUA.

Code: Select all

belt.get_transport_line(1).insert_at(0.5,{name=ore, count=1})
now to code for line 1 vs line 2

Ok I have most of my mod working however the belts in 12.* act different with regards to collisions. When the can_place_entity function finds items on a belt items on a belt do not take space so it allways returns true.

Re: Destroy Building on Pick-up/Mine

If you make hardness a large enough value it cannot be mined. This is based on the power of the tool vs the hardness of the object. Mods may allow more powerful tools. When the hardness is larger than the tools power it is not able to be mined.
