*see the note*
*get in the car*
*drive straight towards alien spawners*
*respawn like nothing happened*


This mod seems useful. I may use it when I start playing the game.
Just 2 suggestions...
First, would you consider using my color picker mod as an option for changing text color? :P
Second, would you consider creating another mod for a signpost? I know there is already a mod for that, but I like your options. :D (And god you are very productive!)
My mods (Deprecated, maybe temporary... idk. Currently time/mood to continue):

Yes I will have a look at it.
Second, would you consider creating another mod for a signpost?
What is the difference with my mod ? SignPost does less than I do : as far as I remember, SignPost does not even display text on the ground, but you had to click on the post-panel to read the message. So I do not understand what you want.

um.... for the appearance, I prefer SignPost. But for the functionalities, I prefer yours. :P

Well sorry, but I want something visible. The signpost is not enough visible for me.

Not the exact same model of course. I just want something that blends well into Factorio and can stand there forever without feeling too weird, not just something temporary like a memo.

Like... you can put a sign to claim an area as "Car Park", then this area will be used as a car park forever as long as the sign is there.
On the other hand, a sticky note, for me, is more like a plan or for whatever temporary message. You will take it away once the job is done or the statement becomes invalid. Like your image, you will take away the note once the car is not there anymore.

But it is totally fine if you don't like this idea. :lol:

Give me a nice metallic signpost image that I can reduce to around W32xH32 or W32xH64 max and I will add a second object with the same features.

It will take some time. I am not good at drawing things in Factorio's style. Maybe I should make a request for that later. :mrgreen:

Well, it's just a question of pasting a few items from google image...
Here is my version. Please update to 1.0.1 to see it.

Oh! LOL
I was thinking about a sign that looks like those in LogisticsUtility, but with better graphics and just some dummy words on the sign.
But your version is still good. Thanks for that! :D

Nice and useful mod. Thanks!

Here is my little bugreport (Factorio 0.14.5)

After being put by construction robot:
note starts behave as a box. Its inventory opens on click. That's weird but ok
text is missing. That's is a bit disappointing, because I use note as a comment for my combinators logic

Hi,
sorry, yes I had a problem with API at the time I wrote this mod, but the problem is now corrected, so please update, it should work now.
But note that blueprint cannot copy the private settings of the note (text, etc...). It will just create new empty notes.

I'm curious : how do you use notes with combinators ?

Cool anyway. Thanks.
I'm curious : how do you use notes with combinators ?
For example, upper block of combinators loads my trains with goods I produce on this little factory (it's under construction). It loads exact amount of goods I need somewhere else and unloads back to the store (wipes remains) if no other factory needs them. So I have 2 inputs for this block (from smart station and from network) and 2 outputs (for loaders and for unloaders).

Lower block orders materials from other factories or stores. I simply set up one constant combinator with what I need and how much I need. And this block translates signals to the network and manages inserters. Lamps just indicate connectors.

And much more blocks for different purposes. My problem is: I don't usually remember what makes each of them and how they should be connected :-) Your mod helps a lot.

I have a suggestion (not an order or request or something): Is there any possibility to write text directrly in combinators and lamps ?
