Re: Technology/Research Unlocks

Yes, you'd want to do that in the data.lua (or other staged variant). the other staged variants are data-updates.lua and data-final-fixes.lua (loaded in that order, they mostly allow not specifying as many optional dependencies for other mods). Also you'd want to make sure that if someone adds the ...

Re: Modding radar areas - how to change active area

A huge area radar that only uncovers in the first place It wouldn't be just the first place if you used the ontick event to add energy or setup some other way for them to continuously receive power. Would it be possible to reduce the energy needed per sector scan to something miniscule (1kJ, for ex...

Re: Modding radar areas - how to change active area

Unfortunately, the area that the radar scans constantly and allows you to see all active entities within, does not increase and I cannot find anything within the base game files to do with how wide an area the radar can see... So how would I go about modding that area? Unfortunately that is current...

Re: Wiki tutorial by FreeER

May someone help me? First the tutorial isn't quite updated to 11 yet (mainly the car prototype used by the bomber has changed), look a couple posts up and you'll see a zip of the partial update (graphics haven't been redone yet). Second, what you posted would indicate an issue with Factorio itself...

Re: Option/Method for rotated Assembly-Animation ?

You can specify directions in assembling-machine animations just like you can the mining-drill animation. Factorio checks the animation table for a 'north' table, if it doesn't find one it uses the given animation for all four directions. The same happens if you give the north animation table, it wi...

Re: Detecting trains on the track

The signal entity itself just defines that it's type is "rail-signal", but I haven't been able to find anything defining that type anywhere. All actual types are in the C++ code, so that would explain why you can't find anything. Perhaps the best option here would be using findentitiesfil...

Re: Jetpack Mod

Please make a Jetpack mod that allows the player to fly. Maybe as modular armour module or similar. Should either use fuel or energy etc. The wiki modding tutorial adds a 'bomber', admittedly it's a bit out of date now but there's a somewhat working-ish version here (if you consider using a car as ...

Re: about modding : new tutorials

Nice work, you should place these on the wiki so they can be found easily later (also you can split them up more easily into relevant sections) :P A few things I'd like to mention in the first code block you initialize glob.var and var to "a" not to "" as you show later the first...

Re: [Request]Access to entity properties from control code

I'm not sure if you know about this, but you can use the game.entityprototypes table to access properties of entity prototypes from control.lua. Not everything is there though (try game.player.print(game.entityprototypes['stone-furnace'].help()) ), but yes it's good to know; if you have an entity r...

Re: [0.11.x] Stamina (multiplayer compatible)

nice mod idea :) One: if you log out of a MP server while crafting, your character will continue to lose health while offline and when you log back in you may be dead. How is that a bug? Isn't it kind of the point that if you keep crafting you will die? lol. Beyond that it's probably because MP play...

Okay so, it works fine when I use the remote.call, but after a few seconds the clock disappears again.
