Re: Animated Lamp

I don't know how hard you people spam lamps, but if active=false is as cheap as it sounds, then I doubt you'd see a notable UPS impact even with several thousand "lamps". I was spamming them enough to make creating a lamp mod that has triple the illumination radius (and the attendant burd...

Re: Animated Lamp

Unfortunately this is a have-cake-or-eat-it but not both situation (IMO). If you want the automatic electric on/off behaviour of electric lamps, it has to be a lamp - lamps are heavily optimised for the electric network which is why you can't have any other kind of energy source for them. But lamps ...

Re: Animated Lamp

I've tried to use a workaround by making it assembling machine as type,but that didn't work because i still needed a way to void a recipe result and make it begins the animation as how it supposed to be for lamp regardless when the player choose the recipe and as for light i believe working_visuali...

Re: Error 400: No file selected

You shouldn't need overnight with pinga. Main benefit over PNG Gauntlet is that it's fast. On extreme it did whole mod graphics in about minute and a half. Yeah, it's at least an order of magnitude faster. I guess PNG Gauntlet does that "trial" thing where it compares different methods an...

Re: Error 400: No file selected

The maximum mod size is supposed to be 300 Mb so it's currently less than half of that and, likesay, it has been bigger in the past. The different error messages on different days isn't filling me with confidence that it's a problem at my end, either. I will try running it through pingo overnight bu...

Re: Limit Modded Module to specific entity

You can't. A module will go into any machine that allows the effects assigned to the module in the machine's module_specification . For assembling machines and furnaces you can use limitations and limitations_blacklist but those are based on recipes and so there is no way of preventing a specific mo...

Re: Error 400: No file selected

I tried again this evening. Today the upload halts at roughly 80% of the progress bar, there is again a short pause, and then this: Error: Unknown error (JS1). (code: 500) If these are actually HTTP errors then 500 would be almost anything, but 400 (yesterday's error) might indicate that perhaps the...

Re: Scale in Lua VS Scale in Image Manipulation program

But isn't the result the same?let's say i've made an HR sprite sheet lab that is 1000 Width 1000 Hight and scaled it down with the same animations(which probably would be demanding for performance)to 500 Width and 500 Hight for low resolution ,wouldn't that be pointless as well?what i'm trying to s...

Re: Scale in Lua VS Scale in Image Manipulation program

You've phrased this in a way which is hard to understand but based on a surface reading of what you've said the answer is no, there would be no benefit. There would be no point in specifying an hr_version with the same scale and dimensions as the regular version. Further, it would be a waste of your...

Re: Adding lighting to an entity in 1.1.30+

I don't know what you mean by "entity.dat", as far as I know there's no such thing in Factorio mods. In 1.0 and 1.1 Factorio got a lot more lighting options. Usually these are added to an entity in working visualisations because those give most control over when the animations/lights are d...

Error 400: No file selected

I'm trying to upload an update to a large mod (141 Mb) to the mod portal. When the file upload progress bar is complete, there is a medium-sized pause, followed by an error message I've never seen before: Untitled.jpg My home broadband is ADSL with a very poor upload speed so it takes considerable t...

Re: Industrial Revolution 2 is incompatible with Alien Biomes

The author (thank you for the mod!) doesn't allow discussion on the mod page, and doesn't want to update the FAQ / description to include the incompatibility with extremely popular mods, so we all get this PSA instead. Hope you all didn't get through most of a game only to discover no rubber trees!...

Re: [Tutorial] PNG size optimization

Yes, download time doesn't matter. Startup time probably depends more on image resolution than file size so i doubt it makes any difference at all. But from the perspective of someone with really shitty internet: Lossy reduction by say 70%[*1] of a large mod could shave hours off the upload time. A...

Re: [Tutorial] PNG size optimization

My opinion: using lossy compression to shave a handful of seconds off loading/downloading time is like cutting off your toes so you can put on a pair of cheap shoes. If I'm going to settle down for a 2 hour gaming session, I couldn't give a monkey's if the game took 30 seconds to load instead of 35....

OK. I have added checks for both short and long tech unit cost forms both there and in a couple of other tech-related places. IR now loads with Angel's Refining (it's a broken mess of a game with both at once, but it loads). This won't be uploaded today but soon-ish. FTR, I don't check this thread ...
