Allow Entity Offshore-Pump to have fluid = nil flag

Hello, Please could you allow the fluid = "water" flag to be nil or "None" on the Offshore-Pump entity type. If you set this to nil currently, Factorio complains that the flag is missing. Because of the new fluid mixing logic my modified pump, an "Offshore-Drain" now ba...

Re: [0.16.51] Pump stuck with 0.0 liquid

Yeah this was a problem for me when writing my mod. I notiiced that even though the pipes showed 0.0 water, my mod was still trying to move water out the pipe/tank etc, eventually when I began printing out the amount value from the fluid box, found that the insane level of precision was the cause, n...

Re: Friday Facts #274 - New fluid system 2

Looking good! That flow rate info, is that available to us modders? I can't see it in the preview on the Factorio API, unless im being blind. My mod has to guess when offshore pumps are active which I get from calculating the flowrate of water from the Flow Statistics. Having the flow rate available...

Re: Friday Facts #271 - Fluid optimisations & GUI Style inspector

Look cool!

Obviously at the moment these are looking like back-end changes to the fluid mechanics.

Should we modders just keep an eye on the api for anything to with how entites are interacting with the new fluid system, I saw a few changes in the 0.17 api.

Re: Add flow to Fluid box API

Any ideas if the above could be included in the changes for 0.17? The idea would really help in knowing if an Offshore Pump has fluid flowing through it, or if there was an entity.active on offshore pumps so that I would know if they are pumping or not. Heres the mod that would benifit from it : htt...

Re: Friday Facts #251 - A Fistful of Frames

Loving the benchmarks!

Would love to see this as a part of the game. Think Factorio would make a great tool for benching CPUs, would be nice so we Factorioneers could compare our PCs :D
