[MOD 0.12.20] Overflow Valve

Post by ILMTitan » Tue Dec 22, 2015 5:20 am

Type: Mod
Name: Overflow Valve
Description: Adds an Overflow Valve which prevents fluid from passing through until one side is 90% full.
License: MIT License
Version: 0.0.1
Tested-With-Factorio-Version: 0.12.20

Website: https://github.com/ILMTitan/Overflow-Valve

This mod allow players to prioritize where their fluids go. Putting them in front of your heavy/light oil cracking and solid fuel production facilities will ensure all other uses for those fluids are satisfied before breaking them down.

I am reasonably sure there won't be performance issues, but the graphics are both bad and broken. Otherwise, the entity itself seems to be working as intended. I still need to firm up how I want to organize the repository (having a folder named overflow-valve_0.0.1 in there seems bad) and how I am going to package the releases.

Code: Select all

{
    "name": "overflow-valve",
    "version": "0.0.1",
    "title": "Overflow Valve",
    "author": "James Przybylinski",
    "description": "A Valve that acts like a pipe only when its input is full",
    "dependencies": ["base >= 0.12.16"]
    "contact": "ILMTitan@hotmail.com",
}
I think that last comma needs to move up a line.

That got the mod going for me. Will playtest a bit after work.

Seems pretty handy. Would be neat to modify the threshold here with a slider so you could prioritize different things like direct use vs cracking vs storage. I put mine in front of a small pump in front of my big storage tanks so they're only filled if not needed for other things.

Thanks. Updated the repository to fix the (dumb) error.

Hi,
thanks for the mod.

How does it compare to a small pump + circuit?

You don't have to connect it to a circuit network. You just plop it down, and when one side gets full enough, it allows flow.
