Re: LuaControl.insert, but don't insert to module inventory

In fact inserters will transfer into the module inventory of a machine should the input slots become full by the time it starts to drop the module.

Re: Somethings not (or hidden) in doc but you need to know

I tried but couldn't reproduce. :? But there is a slight difference: my mod names don't use underscore (_) but hyphen (-). Don't know if that matters. Don't know why even if so. Are you really sure MOD_NAME = "my_mod"? It seemed to be quite a problem for some users of my mods. I couldn't ...

Re: Factorio Friday Friday Facts #203 - Logistic buffer chest

I think I missed one thing.... will we still need requester chest? :?:

Re: "Nothing" (custom) technology modifier needs dynamism

I think he meant this:
"effect_key" of "nothing" tech modifier accepts LocalisedStr

Currently only string is accepted. Giving it a localised string will throw error.
