[Oxyd] [0.18.22] Launched artillery at bugs which couldn't path, game slowed down significantly

Playing multiplayer with the Natural Evolution mods, we built a landfill bridge across most of a large lake and used artillery to bomb the bejeezus out of either a large island or an area with a connection that wasn't yet explored. The game slowed to 30 UPS for a while. The problem was especially ba...

Somehow make a shield upgrade research possible

I'm looking at various options for how to add a shield upgrade research mod to factorio. With help of some other commenters, I can think of a few possibilities. Each of them has a limitation which stops it from being used, though. I'd love to have a modding interface change which allows one of more ...

Re: Is it possible to alter an on_entity_damaged event?

To be clear, I'm looking to make a research where shields are more durable. So if they currently have a 10% bonus, the character in my example who started with 100 shields left would have soaked 110 damage with shields and only taken 90 hit points, whereas the character with 190 shields left would h...

Re: Is it possible to alter an on_entity_damaged event?

This is certainly a possibility. It has some difficulties, though. You can check the entity's grid to see if it has any shields equipped. From there, you can see if the shields have reached 0, which suggests the character just took damage. Unless you know what the starting shields were, though, you ...

Is it possible to alter an on_entity_damaged event?

Is there a way to intercept an on_entity_damaged event and change the amount of damage being dealt? I'm exploring various ways to implement a shield research mod to improve the strength of a shield, and one of the ideas I'm thinking of now is to change how much damage is dealt for an on_entity_damag...

Re: Dynamically create new items

No Not unexpected. Looking at the way the damage bonuses are calculated, it looks like that is applied by default without considering the weapon stats. For example, copper ammunition in Natural Evolution has the damage defined as { type = "damage", damage = { amount = 4 , type = "phy...

Dynamically create new items

I've been trying to figure out how to implement a mod where you can research shield upgrades. So, for example, shield mk 2 would go from 150 hit points to 165, 180, etc. I'd like this to be an infinite research, so after 10 researches with this example the shield would have 300 hit points. As far as...

Re: Shield upgrade research

It sounds like your suggestion is basically to only apply the bonus when the shield is equipped. Would this work for existing armor / vehicles / other grids that have the upgraded shield? Also, it would be great to be able to show the bonus as part of the tooltip when hovering over the item, which w...

Shield upgrade research

I was thinking of working on a mod where researching shield technology upgrades your shields to soak more damage. Naturally, this would be much easier if a shield upgrade technology bonus already existed. Currently I think the only way to do it would be to find all existing shield items and replace ...

Whatever logic is used to select pumpjacks or drills when mods are available should work fine for water pumps as well.

Re: Calculate inserter arm positions only when the GPU or a mod wants them

It would be really, really useful, if we have a power sensor, which has a signal, that rises when power is not 100% satisfied. So we would have a chance to turn power off completely (switch) and save much cpu. This is actually quite easy to do. Have a counter circuit connected to a solar panel and ...

Re: Daylight sensor

Definitely had fun with it! I added an S-R latch and a pulse combinator so that it ticks once per day. I counted the number of ticks and added a constant for how many days I've been on the planet before starting the combinators. I combined it with this display: https://factorioprints.com/view/-LCBql...

Migration for mod deactivation

Is there a way to make a migration run when a mod is disabled or deactivated? I'm maintaining a mod which wipes out all existing biters and prevents new ones from appearing. When the mod is disabled, new territory will eventually contain biters, and they'll start spreading from the newly discovered ...

Re: Poison Capsules Should Produce Pollution

Just to clarify, I don't want the base poison capsules to be stronger than they are. I would like it to be possible to research "poison +20%" the same way you can research "physical projectile +20%". It could affect slowdown capsules as well. Even if there aren't other weapons in...

Re: Poison Capsules Should Produce Pollution

I think adding pollution would help realism. If biters care about clouds of industrial byproducts, surely they should care about concentrated forms of those gases applied directly to their nests. The indirect nerfing of using poison gas as tree removal can be balanced by making the canisters stronge...

Re: Stop inserter from automatically taking an item into an empty assembler

In my experience, inserters never put anything into an unlabeled assembler. Is there something about your assembler creation that temporarily gives it a task?

Poison Capsule tweaks

The first change I think would be helpful is to make it so poison capsules cause pollution. Seems pretty obvious that the biters would hate poisonous green gas even more than they hate industrial pollution. It would also be nice if there were an upgrade for the damage. Maybe make it so upgraded pois...
