As far as I remember it was really early, but not the first.
I meant first overhaul mod, not the first mod itself. But that's also quite cool that we can see the first actual mod! :D

Re: Alt-F4 #43 - The DyWorld Saga

To F-Mod: the history of that mod is deleted. :| I also found those pages in my digging, but thank you for looking anyway! :) But if even you couldn't find anything then it is truley lost. :cry: I was really curious what a major overhaul mod looked like in those days, or how detailed the forum page...

Re: Passenger count for vehicles

+1 for dissallowing passengers with a second bool flag. It would be very useful for my beta-ish Demolition Derby mod. Currently I need to add a lot of fluff code to ensure that there's never more than one player in a vehicle. This generates a lot of extra events (passenger getting in + script removi...

Re: LuaRendering.draw_on_map

+1. I would like to draw my own power lines in map view in my Fluidic Power mod, since I delete all the copper connections.

Re: Small documentation improvement requests

The play_sound{ } function for both surface and player says that if no position is given then it's played "everywhere". This would mean that it's similar to a programmable speaker's global alert that can be heard everywhere. However, this is not true. When a sound is played "everywhe...

Re: [1.1.34] play_sound{...} not playing sound globally

I understand, that is unfortunate. I will make a note later in Bilka's thread that the docs should be updated. So, there is no way in Lua to mimic a programable speaker that plays the siren sound consistently and heard everywhere, except for building a physical programmable speaker entity and settin...

[1.1.34] play_sound{...} not playing sound globally

I'm trying to play a sound that's heard globally, ideally only for specific players. According to the docs if I don't supply a position argument then it's played "everywhere". However, when I play the sound and walk away the sound volume lowers, and disappear if I'm far enough away. I expe...

Re: Small documentation improvement requests

The docs for create_entity does not include all keys requried for when creating a artillery-flare . It requires the same keys as particle , but it does not seem to be a particle because you can't spawn it using create_particle . -> Added for the next release. (they are indeed the same parameters)

Hello! I propose having the ability to completely þhide the fluid box indicators on buildings. Or more specifically, while the item is in the cursor.

I'm going to shower you with more information with the hope that it makes it easier to fix, and that it becomes worth your time. :lol: Here are a map and mod with a minimal example to reproduce it foolproof, as well as the created log file. The mod changed a little from when this thread started. I s...

Re: [Lou][1.1.27] Error ElectricPole.cpp:1371: Zero cnnection before non-zero in "..." at { }

Okay, now I can reproduce it from scratch. Before you do this your game can save, afterwards, the save crashes. Steps to reproduce. 1. Don't be in editor mode, we need to place ghosts. Also no robots, we build by hand. 2. Place 5 modded "Small Electric Poles" in a vertical line, with no sp...

Re: [Lou][1.1.27] Error ElectricPole.cpp:1371: Zero cnnection before non-zero in "..." at { }

I figured out the interaction that breaks the saving operation! Or corrupts the pole neighbours. Before this interaction the game saves fine, and after the interaction, the game crashes with the attached log file. You can use the same Fluidic Power mod file I supplied in the initial post. The intera...

Re: [Lou][1.1.27] Error ElectricPole.cpp:1371: Zero cnnection before non-zero in "..." at { }

Hello Lou! Thanks for taking the time to look at this. a) Just to make sure I understand you correctly. There's a list of connections for each pole, and the error would be thrown if the list looks like [NULL, NULL, connection]? You obviously want all connections in the first elements of the list. Th...

Hello! I ran into this hard crash that happens during multiplayer while saving using an unreleased version of my Fluidic Power mod. I'm fairly certain the hard crash is caused by my mod, but I'm under the impression a mod should not easily be able to hard-crash Factorio. So what happened: Happened w...

Re: [1.1.0] Main menu background simulation doesn't run mods' control.lua but runs lua migrations

I've changed it so migrations don't run in simulations for the next release.
@Rseding91 will migrations be disabled for menu simulations saves inside mod folders as well?
