Not terribly compact but it's not like land is scarce. Clean and simple is good. :)

Re: Slow Supplier (used for repair pack distribution)

"Maybe this is a dumb question but why don't you use [... describes extremely convoluted setup ...]" -- XKnight 2016 Actually it's not convoluted and I think it's better. Your method to just slow things down might help even out the distribution but it's not efficient and I don't see how it caps the...

Re: Re-Enable Achievements...

I just deleted the achievements-modded.dat file. This seemed to "reset" things so that when I passed the marks on my vanilla save, it noticed, and informed steam of the "real" achievements.

Re: What to do when the starting area runs dry?

Don't forget you can set filters on train cargo cars (middle click the cargo squares). This makes it easy to have the train bring ammo and repair packs out to all the stops, x number of empty barrels, reserve space to pick up full barrels, etc. A few filter inserters can handle it without crazy fanc...

That's pretty cool, I will take a peek and see if such functionality can be included. Will see if he wants to combine forces.

Re: [MOD 0.13.x] Advanced Personal Defense

In the future I hope to include modded ammo compatibility. Are there any other besides the ones you listed? In the mean time I would say just stick with the regular old piercing ammo clips. Sorry about the ammo box incompatibility. I'll look into it but my programming experience is limited. I can't ...

Re: [MOD 0.13.x] Advanced Personal Defense

Posted this on mod portal, but posting here in case you don't manage to get around checking that. After a quick check in sandbox mode, I found that the Mk1/vanilla Personal Laser Defense is affected by the laser tower damage/speed upgrades while your Mk2 one is not,so the Mk1 ends up being better t...

Re: [MOD 0.13.x] Advanced Personal Defense

Updated. Gun now returns unused ammo to inventory when removed from armor. Costs reduced a little. Added armor research requirement to gun because it's relevant. Currently the enhanced laser is almost not needed, I'm having such an easy time clearing bases with the flame thrower, in addition to the ...

Re: movement_bonus into other equipment type?

Interesting.
Is there a way to make the movement modifier as an "invisible" paired second object that automatically follows the main object when equipped?

movement_bonus into other equipment type?

I'm hoping to add a movement modifier to equipment items. First is a "active-defense-equipment" type, I want to make the defense gun in my mod slow you down since it should be sorta heavy. Other thing I want to do is make "extra plating" that occupies a 1x1 grid space and adds defensive bonus but al...

Idea- multiple authors and/or contributors

Title says it all. Adil did a lot of the heavy lifting on my mod with regards to the programming, I would list him as a contributor if I could.

That way in the future when you look at someone's profile on the portal, the relevant authored/contributed works would be listed.

IDEA: Mod upvoting, clustering

This is a two-part post. First, up/down voting of mods or some other user rating system would be great. Second, there are some mods which are totally redundant. Perhaps even to the extent that they should be checked into for license issues? But assuming that no toes are stepped on, I think this is p...

Re: [0.13] Allow mods to be tagged with 3 tags

+1
I feel like my mod fits under more than one umbrella as well.
2 or 3 seems good. I certainly understand that if EVERYONE picked multiple tags then overall it would dilute the purpose of them.
