First preview of the mod settings tools in ModMyFactory. Currently settings can be edited on a per-mod basis just like in Factorio, but they stay saved at all times.
I also plan on storing settings on a per-modpack basis but still need to iron out some issues. Also there is still an open question about what happens if multiple modpacks that each have their own settings are active. If you have any ideas on how to solve that please tell me.

  • Added tools to edit mod settings.
  • Fixed possible crash when selecting certain mods in the online list.
  • Fixed a problem that caused mod dependencies to not be activated in some situations.

ModMyFactory is not compatible with Factorio versions 0.17.0 to 0.17.8 due to a bug affecting those versions. If you want to use ModMyFactory with Factorio 0.17 you have to use a version from 0.17.9 onward.
Factorio 0.16.51 and older versions also work.
I hope this isn't complaining, but as a potential new user I would benefit from seeing this as the first paragraph at the top of the post. Also, the github wiki doesn't mention it at all. The only date it has is October 2018, and it doesn't mention Factorio versions at all. If I don't see immediately "Yes this is updated. Yes this works in current versions," I'm likely to click away.

Would it be possible to add a non-steam version that launched through steam anyway? I really love this mod manager, but I'm also a weirdo about my "hours played" stats. I'm getting into bob's/angel's and don't want to lose all those hours! I understand that I can just change over my steam version and launch through steam normally, which is what I'm currently doing, but your mod manager makes it so easy to do version switching, it'd be great if that could somehow be worked out! Thanks in advance! Maybe I'm just dumb and that's already there somehow...?

Try deleting your settings file in %appdata%/ModMyFactory

You want "compatible with 0.17" at the very top of the first post?

I'm not sure if Steam allows starting of external games using command line. If it does it's not currently supported and would impose a whole lot of new challenges.

To all of you: I'm currently struggling with health issues IRL and probably won't be able to develop or even give much support in the near future.
Just so you guys know the lack of updates and replies is not because I have abandoned this project.

I went through most of the thread and the wiki, but couldn't find quite a confirmation or not of this, so I'm asking here, since I seem to not be understanding something.

Say I have the savefile folder pointed at the APPDATA folder for MMF. I place a single savefile zip in there (copied manually from my base factorio installation). The original factorio installation has various other savefiles in it, but I only copy one of them to MMF's APPDATA save folder.
I add a version of factorio from the folder where my base installation is in (so the installation has been copied to MMF's APPDATA folder)
I create a modpack, add a bunch of mods to it, and activate the modpack. I select the factorio version that has been copied to MMF's APPDATA folder (in the settings dialog, all directories are set to point to APPDATA) in the dropdown at the main window.
I click Start game. The mods are loaded, factorio launches, etc. When I go to load a game, it shows me the list of saves in the original factorio installation. Is this intended, or am I correct in assuming only the MMF's saves should be visible here?

Actually you're correct in both cases. It's just that when adding a Factorio installation all of the saves are automatically copied to the MMF directory so you can continue where you left off.

I thought that might be the case, which is why I deleted all saves after MMF copied them over, and pasted only the one save I cared about. (Which I now realize I implied otherwise with the order in which I wrote what I did, that's my bad)
To further test, I copied Vanilla twice to make sure the save folders were definitely distinct.
This is my MMF save folder:
This is what I have in my current main installation outside MMF:
Just to make sure I didn't assume where the saves go, I took these screenshots from within the directory opened when clicking "Open Folder" in the version manager in MMF

So main installation has four saves, one "Vanilla" and three autosaves.
The MMF's version installation has three saves, "Vanilla, Vanilla2, Vanilla3".

When I select the version I used to navigate to MMF's save folder, and hit play, these are the saves that show up:
These are the main installation saves.

Is there anywhere within MMF that I could have accidentally pointed to take saves from a folder other than the APPDATA one?

Is the installation you have added from the installer or the manual package?
If it's the installer it may be possible there is some configuration that causes Factorio to use the appdata save folder instead of the one in its directory.

The version of factorio I added was installed by GOG. The installation has a bunch of files GOG uses to keep track of installation and whatnot.

I tried a fresh manual install and told MMF to get version from the zip, and in that case it works fine. The three Vanilla saves show up.

It works! :D

Still kinda weird that getting the version from GOG's install messes with what folder saves are loaded from, but hey. If anyone else ends up with this issue and they have the game through GOG, get the manual install from the factorio site itself and MMF works perfectly. Thanks for the help!
