Re: [Suggestions] Per-mod language flags/language awareness

I have just had a discussion with someone wanting to make a foreign language version of my mod and this was the only piece missing in why a mod shouldn't be duplicated for each language.

At the moment you basically need to speak English to be able to search for mods.

Freeplay Scenario player joined message interface

Can the Freeplay scenario control.lua include an interface/commands to disable the default new game behaviour, in the same manner as the silo script can be disabled. As this scenario is the default used by most servers it would be helpful for mods that use different win conditions or starting condit...

Re: Friday Facts #278 - The new quickbar

I don't think the ghost cursor should be disabled by default on the interface. Yes disable it during the early stages of the campaign, until it can be tutorialed and introduced to the player. But during free play the whole game should be unlocked and active. Same logic applies to research queue. The...

The player one should include the magic BP free wires. I am aware this has been requested over the years, but the developer answer was a lack ...

Iterate. MVP (minimum viable product)
There is no financial or operational imperative to release in this scenario though. It's not like new graphics drivers are released that require an update to work or similar.

Re: Friday Facts #277 - GUI progress update

hope the wave defense does allow use of generated worlds as then we can tailor the world gen to help control difficulty, i.e. make resources further apart or less rich in MP with 10 experienced players Recipe Explorer, is this a new feature or a name for the little window that tells you the recipe f...

Re: Very High Chunk Generation Times

on a side note deleting chunks off the map in bulk takes much longer than it did when the map was smaller. so we have previously deleted 100 chunks vertically off the map to regenerate the biters etc on it.

Very High Chunk Generation Times

We are seeing very high chunk generation times, often leading to mass player drop on the MP server due to connection timeouts. When tested in SP a single chunk generation will pause the average players game for a moment and 10 chunks generated by a flying arty shell will cause the game to hang for o...

Expose Unit Spawner Attributes

Could the unique attributes of the Unit Spawner prototype be exposed as read only within the API under LuaEntity. It was the "call_for_help_radius" attribute that I was trying to get, but after a discord discussion with Bilka I also notice that a number of other Unit Spawner specific attributes aren...

Re: [MOD 0.13] Water Well - pump water from the underground

Not sure if this mod is still supported, but it can be problematic if your bases power is heavily taxed by laser turrets and so these stop pumping water, leading to power generation running out of water. There is no burner alternative for water pumping like with burner inserters for feeding boilers/...

thanks, am using them as an in-game visual/animation only thing. As it looks like they are most suitable for this.

Re: [0.16.51] trivial-smoke ignores "affected_by_wind_setting"

when i run the create trivial smoke command repeatedly manually via console I see the sparks animations drifting around. So first few times they may drift downwards on each animation run, then they drift down right, and later straight right. It feels like smoke drift.

LuaControl Teleport() errors when same surface provided for entities

The surface argument is optional in the documentation. ...
