If you made electric poles not connect to any other poles it would make it painful to use electricity, having to put power production right next to everything that needed power because you can't make the power travel any further than a single pole can reach.

I removed all electricity sources from the game, as well as electric poles. You feed all structures with fuel directly in this mod, just like burner mining drill or burner inserter.

(actually, I left solar panels, but only as a part of satellite recipe - they does not work without poles anyway)

Yes, everything but Lamp, Radar, Roboport, Small Pump, and all the logic network elements buildings are burnerifyed. These buildings I hope will be fixed in 0.13 Factorio. If not, I will deal with them by myself. Radar is my point of investigation right now, because it is very essential in the game. I hope, I will find a way to deal with it and add him in the next mod update.

Yes, I thought that too because lot of people said that. Seems like it was so in early Factorio, but now it's fixed. So I hope other buildings will be fixed too sooner or later.

Great Job!

It would be nice to have a mod that eliminates as much electricity as possible, but decreases the coal belting needed by adding STEAM powered assemblers and stuff. Steam-Punk all the way! It would be great if the animations could reflect that,(Steam smoke, and dripping water, ect...) although admittedly harder to do.

* I was a bit amazed that this game had no Steam engine trains...Seriously? Whats up with that?

Finally found it. I'm looking for a no electricity challenge mod for a while now.

My idea of a electricity free playthrough is a little bit more hardcore, I don't want to use anything that is not absolutely essential for late game and doesn't make much sense without electricity. So, no circuit/logistic network, robots, radars. It will be a logistic nightmare :twisted:

Any plans for a 0.13 update?

All my plans are listed in 1st post. And I'm going to work on my mod further, when all the 13-hype will cool down and all major bugs will be fixed.
