Re: [MOD 0.12.X] Alien Eggs 1.0.1

Went ahead and downloaded update version but it'll be a day or two before I can actually test it specifically. Cleared out my mods folder right now cause I decided I should go ahead and work on my own version of a teraforming mod and a market/trading/homeworld type mod. I currently use Landfill and ...

Dont Starve uses LUA for its game behavior and scripting and does use such a component system, but it doesnt handle even 1% as many simultaneous entities either.

Re: Need some help with LUA

Code that isnt properly tabulated and formatted generally is not considered worth looking at. So if you ever need to post more than about a half dozen lines of code you should use a source code specific paste site or in the case of mods zip up the whole mod and post a download link.

Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

So you're listing potential failure conditions in the setting up phase. I'll take that. Now since solar HAS FAR MORE FACTORIES REQUIRED to get accumulators and panels produced you have far more potential failure conditions. Again you're not taking into consideration the entire set of steps needed fo...

Re: Multiplayer Gamemode

Pollution is helpful to biters though. They grow because of it, evolve because of it, and breed more because of it. Its basically super food. As a biter player you should probably have a very low natural reproduction rate and need to send scouts (biters) to find sources of player pollution in order ...

Re: [MOD 0.12.20+] Homeworld

Anything wrong? Well you should still leave the zip as a zip and NOT unpack it. Try that and see if it works. If you absolutely insist on unpacking it then you need to manually clean up the Apple crap that is left in the archive. those are safely ignored while its zipped up. They likely bug the gam...

Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

Except its not clearly false. You build oil-2-solidfuel production so that power generation gets saturated first and only excess solid fuel goes to other needs. If you dont have power then nothing else runs so thats a no brainer design decision. I've never once even paid attention to my oil producti...

Re: [MOD 0.12.20+] Homeworld

Well the archive is a zip, not a rar. So you obviously have the wrong mod to start with. Download from the link in the first post. Also you dont unzip mods. You leave them as a zipped archive and just place the *.zip into your mods folder.

Re: World and Transport Suggestion

To be honest once I feel the need to go into space I just try Spacebase or Space Engineers instead. Or Star Ruler. One game doesnt need to try to do everything as it will lose its focus. Your suggestion of 'different resource on the moon'. For the most part this makes no sense. Most celestial bodies...

Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

Sorry, but this makes totally no sense. The goal is not to force people using steam, but to make solar less "plop and forget". Steam is also plop and forget. And it requires less research. And less of a factory chain. Solar requires more tech. Requires significantly more resources. Requir...

Re: Solar panels less of a no-brainer

2) The setup is much more complex. No its not. The setup for accumulators and solar panels includes the setup for every ingredient they require, and every ingredient those intermediates require, all the way back to the ore gathering and smelting. Just because you're not giving credit to the whole s...
