Also having this problem. Doesn't do anything bad except be there and be annoying. Please fix!

I'm having issues with the new GUI. It seems to be UI scale related but to get it all to show I have to make the UI far too small. At 100%, it sits off the bottom left, with only the 'Ion Cannon Details' heading showing. Also, toggling the show admin option from that menu with no cannons launched causes a crash.

Heya. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I can't auto-targetting function for ion cannons doesn't seem to work. I researched it, have two orbital cannons, have spawners showing up on radar and present in my always-visible zone as well, but cannons aren't firing. Also, I can't fire them over the map, only when I approach the spawner personally.

hello,

i tried out the mod.

Currently i have 10 orbital Ion cannon in orbit.
But max of 2 are ready to shot.
When a counter of other as the last two, which are ready, reach zero, they each start again from 300 sec without fired any of the cannons :(

My problem is the constant alerts of the ion auto-targeting which ruins the game for me as the sound is very disruptive.

Please let me know how to disable auto-targeting or set the alarm sound to something more discreet.

I don't want to disable the mod altogether, awesome work!
You can disable the klaxon sound in the mod options menu under the Per Player tab rather than the Startup tab shown here:

Unchecking the "Play Klaxon" option in the Per Player tab will mute the klaxon.
This appears to be broken. I've disabled both the "Canon Ready" and the "Klaxon" sounds but still get them in game, even after restarting factorio.
I'm on 0.16.50.

Is there a way to disable the cheat menu in singleplayer?

I'd like to know if there's a way to insert an ion cannon or other "orbitals" without launching a rocket. Like in my alternate starts mod, I'd like to be able to add compatibility with mods like this so people can start the game with an ion cannon or two already in orbit. Even better if I can have it set to start with a certain amount of charge up time like 30 minutes of time on its clock or some such.

Any chance you can help me figure this out? I was looking at a few mods to try and guess at this but they didn't help, all were complex for me.

do not shot beacon

i use the ion-cannon to cledar and keep my freed area clean from biters and spawners…..
Currently I have aroud 100 Ion-canons in orbit which occasionaly blot out any sun so far…..



But now I want to create a mod which will supply some meat getting out from the biggest biters.
I try to construct a area for some spawner as a Zoo which will be then slaughtered to get me some food.

But for such a farm I can’t use the Ion-cannons because sooner or later they will destroy the spawners…..

So I want to ask for some beacon which will mark the area as a non target-area for the Ion-canons….

Would that be possible ??

Hmm, it's definitely not a situation I have considered specifically; However, an immediate method I can see is to have those regions covered by Radar(s) closeby such that they are always revealed on the map. This should ensure that they are not auto-targeted during Radar scanning cycles.

You mean when covered the Ion-cannon will not autotarget them ?
That would explain somehting - i thought the close visible spawners will be readied later on.... :oops:

If thats so then this is like i wanted that....

Been a while since I poked at the settings for this mod, but by default it doesn't auto-target anything in the "always revealed" area around a radar. There's a setting to change that, if memory serves.

Yes, I have a couple small features I want to add in addition to 0.17 compatibility.

can you get rid of ion cannons that you spawned by accident via the cheat/admin panel?

I'll add that for the 1.7.1 update.
