How to tell how many of each bot type I have?

Post by wwdragon » Tue Jun 30, 2015 5:08 pm

So if I mouse over a provider chest, it shows total bots, but NOT weather they are logistics or construction.

Can anyone explain the way to tell how much of each?

The chest shows only the logistic bots total, and the cunstruction bots that carry stuff at that time. Idle construction bots aren't considert in the number.

Try this console commands:
/c game.player.print(game.player.force.getentitycount("logistic-robot"))
/c game.player.print(game.player.force.getentitycount("construction-robot"))

From this forum thread.

Code: Select all

/c 
local ls,cs="logistic-robot","construction-robot";
local log,con = game.forces.player.getentitycount(ls),game.forces.player.getentitycount(cs);
for c in game.getchunks() do
 for _,port in pairs(game.findentitiesfiltered{area={{c.x*32,c.y*32},{c.x*32+32,c.y*32+32}}}) do
 con=con+port.getitemcount(cs);
 log=log+port.getitemcount(ls) end end
 for _,p in pairs(game.players) do p.print(con..cs..", "..log..ls) end
