And the other reason why I want to add this limitation feature is Factorio's logic : nothing is supposed to be free :D
Water is already free in vanilla, and doesn't even require fuel or power. Have the devs said that nothing is supposed to be free in Factorio?

Don't worry, the water from my well is free.
And if you read the whole post, you will see that I abandonned the idea of well depletion : so this well is infinite, as long as you provide electrity. So this water is not totally free afterall ;-)

Would be nice if you updated the texture to high resolution since the pumpjack got high resolution this patch. If it's easier, a way to just disable your texture and use the default high resolution pumpjack texture would also be great.

Not sure if this mod is still supported, but it can be problematic if your bases power is heavily taxed by laser turrets and so these stop pumping water, leading to power generation running out of water. There is no burner alternative for water pumping like with burner inserters for feeding boilers/nuclear reactors.

at present you have:

Code: Select all

energy_source.usage_priority = "secondary-input"
could this be set to be a primary-input so equal in power drain importance to laser turrets?

I love this mod, but the values seem too strong.

What is does is it completely bypasses the water distribution issues by allowing the player to get water *anywhere*, instead of -say- using annoying long pipes or a train system. Grand. However it is strange that this auxiliary solution seems better than standard solutions in nearly every way.

TL;DR
Why does this pump output more water than a pump that takes water directly from a lake? Can it please have a drawback? (10 polution and a small power cost is not really a drawback)

P.S.: To those who use it for generators and want a certain throughput, you can always use.. 2 pumps.. don't really see this as a valid point for requesting a higher yield.

You can change it yourself fairly easily:
1. Unpack the waterwell mod (zip file)
2. Change the settings to your liking
3. Pack the files into waterwell mod again

You can omit step 3, no need for a mod to be a zip, it can be a (unpacked) directory.

I would advise against that. Putting all the files in a single zip keeps them together and makes exchanging them much easier. Also, it's better for fragmentation and keeps the MFT smaller (on NFTS... don't know the name for other file systems) .

If you just want to edit one file to change a single thing… I have a number of unpacked mods. I don't plan on sharing them. So… And MFT? Is this the 90s?

I modified the info.json file to make it work with 0.18 on my machine, and that appears to be all that's needed for it to be compatible.

I made the high resolution graphics so you can add it to the mod, remnants added, new icon as well, shadows were copied from Factorio data folder since there are no shadows of the water well while working.

Image

I also improved the low resolution graphics so it doesn't look so saturated.

Image

For the little connector that there is in the water well when you rotate it you can find it in ...\Factorio\data\base\graphics\entity\assembling-machine-2, the high resolution one for the high resolution pump.

Anyone can check at ...\Factorio\data\base\graphics\entity\pumpjack that only the proper locations changed color maintaining areas as in the little tube below the water pump.

Very nice!

I'm not sure how to apply the graphics though. Could you please provide a zip file with your 'modded mod' with everything in it that works out of the box?
This would also help people who don't know how to edit the info.json to get this mod to work on v0.18.

Finally, maybe you can take over the mod from BinBinhfr because I think (s)he stopped playing Factorio (not sure).
