How to see beneath construction/logistic bot module icon?

Post by Jon8RFC »

I feel dumb since I've been playing Factorio for many years and should be familiar enough to find where to adjust and correct this.

I can't see beneath the icon, which makes it impossible to understand what I'm looking at in alt-mode.

How to I move the icon down a bit or what is the solution everyone else does so that they can see the base layout properly?

Excuse me being a little tongue in cheek, but I reckon you have 2 options:
1. Build the required modules so the icons disappear.
2. RIght-click the icon to remove it, and then add the modules later when they become available.

Seriously, though, I'm not aware of any way to move the "missing module" icon.

Heh, it's on a multiplayer server, so if it's neither available nor my own thing built, I don't want to cancel it and mess up whatever someone else has planned.

Thanks though. I hoped I was missing something obvious, like "there's a button you can add where the roboport and alt buttons are".

As far as I’m aware, there’s no way to selectively disable certain icons from showing vs others, or to move/off-center icons.

As a workaround, you can use recipe icons in the map view to quickly check what you are looking at.
