[Tobias][1.1.42] All GUIs becomes unresponsive after cutscene with Tips-And-Tricks open

This is a kind of obscure bug that a player came across. It's relatively easy to work around this in the mod, but thought I would let you guys know. What happened? When turning of game_view_settings.show_controller_gui and then viewing a cutscene while Tips-And-Tricks is open can cause all GUIs to b...

Re: Industrial Revolution 2 discussion

I'd definitely use something like that, if only for temporarily "hiding" characters by giving them completely transparent sprites as "armour", which would avoid the need for wild shenanigans involving invisible indestructible cars and having to track and clean them up again unde...

Re: Custom ArithmeticCombinator

Realized my previous post wasn't very helpful. Looking at other mods like this one it seems like it's not easy modifying other combinators to output what you want it to output. It looks like you would need to put your output on a invisible constant combinator. https://mods.factorio.com/mod/stack-com...

Re: Custom ArithmeticCombinator

Best would be to download a mod that does something similar to what you want to do, and then see what they did. Maybe something like this? https://mods.factorio.com/mod/UsefulCombinators And for reference, this is how I've managed to change the output of a constant combinator in one of my mods. Shou...

Re: Small documentation improvement requests

It will not fire if th...

Allow gui_arrow to point to offscreen targets, like Alerts

It looks like this for both types entity and position. https://i.imgur.com/CEV06pz.png However, when the arrow moves off screen it dissapears, and you have no idea where the arrow (or your goal) is.

My preference would be to change the documentation rather than break all the mods which currently compensate for this, probably some artifact of passing stuff between Lua and C++.
Yes, of course. As long as it is documented.

[1.1.39] on_cutscene_waypoint_reached index starts at 0

This is either a bug, or an error in documentation. If it's simply an error in documentation then I'll will make a post on that thread. If it's a bug, then I'm not sure how it remained in the game for so long :D (although cutscenes aren't used much) What? The on_cutscene_waypoint_reached event retur...

My use case is preventing players from connecting power poles with copper cable in Fluidic Power, by destroying the connection as soon as it's made. (The mod expects only have pipe connections between poles, and not electric connections as well)

Re: Performace issues on High-End PC

When I go in task manager (see first image) my CPU is only at 20% and my graphics card is hardly used at all which leads me to suspect the game isn't utilising its full potential. IIRC the CPU showing 25% does not mean your CPU is only performing at 25%. It could be that you have a quadcore, One of...

Re: [1.1.38] [MOD] Space Exploration - surface.delete_chunk causes permanent freeze

Does't deleting chunks just take long in general though? I don't have much experience in trimming surfaces in SE, but when I reduce save files for the Hall of Fame I sometimes need to let it run through the night. And there was no mod handlers running, only tons and tons of entities.

Re: Converting SaveFile to new Version?

If you look at carefully u see that there is a big gap between 0.17.79 and 1.0 The whole 0.18.xx version branch is missing, which is essential to be able to upgrade your older savegames to a version what the current version eats. Ah, yes, I stand corrected. I must've downloaded my 0.18 zip before t...

Re: Converting SaveFile to new Version?

Older releases of Factorio is available on the main site, all the way back to 0.6! On the download page simply click on "Download older releases...". I use it quite often to update old save files.
