That's a pretty cool idea, and great for learning game.
Better forum search for modders: Enclose your search term in quotes, eg. "font_color" or "custom-input" - it prevents the forum search from splitting on hypens and underscores, resulting in much more accurate results.

I just added the 1.0.1 version to my heavilty modded game and I'm not seeing that image on screen. Could it be due to having a ton of other icons from other mods there?

OH, THANK GOD. I wanted a "WHERE USED" function sooooooooooo badly. Angel's and Bob's go insane with the amount of things I need to keep in my head.

Posted much the same on the mod portal discussion area. My Dytech save and Bobs save are not showing the icon. Closer to stock saves do.

It looks like it will only work for new characters.


Drop this in control.lua somewhere and it will work when installing it into existing saves. (if doing this for personal use before an official update you will need to load your save with the mod uninstalled and save)

Code: Select all

script.on_init(function()
	for _, player in pairs(game.players) do
		if not player.gui.top["wiiuf_flow"] then
			local flow = player.gui.top.add{type = "flow", name = "wiiuf_flow", direction = "vertical"}
			flow.add{type = "sprite-button", name = "looking-glass", sprite = "looking-glass", style = "slot_button_style", tooltip = {"top_button_tooltip"}}
		end
	end
end)

script.on_configuration_changed(function()
	for _, player in pairs(game.players) do
		if not player.gui.top["wiiuf_flow"] then
			local flow = player.gui.top.add{type = "flow", name = "wiiuf_flow", direction = "vertical"}
			flow.add{type = "sprite-button", name = "looking-glass", sprite = "looking-glass", style = "slot_button_style", tooltip = {"top_button_tooltip"}}
		end
	end
end)

interesting mod. defint must have for me. i one issue i have found is if its used with bobs mods and/or angels petrochem there are far to many chemicals displayed in one colum and it runs off screen. i was able to adjust it by changing line 125 in control from colspan = 1 to colspan = 5.

Code: Select all

local fluids_table = flow.add{type = "table", colspan = 5, name = "fluids_table", style = "slot_table_style"}
there is the whole line with the change

Doh, I made that rookie mistake again xD. I always forget about excising games. See update 1.0.2 in a few minutes

Is fixed in update 1.0.2. You can download it through the modportal.

It passed the stress test :D

Will definitely recommend this mod with my mods.

Could you display the recipes as hoverable icons as well instead of plain text?

The same you do with the fluid selection, but with the recipe results so one could browse the recipes said item is used in

Yeah, someone on the modportal said the same. I'll consider working on it.

Your mod is awesome as it is, I suggested something like that to someone on discord a week ago or so, so I'm really geeked about it :) but it would be a bit more visually pleasing

Could you explain why?
I intentionally placed that list near the looking glass button so the travel distance from this button to the liquid table would be minimal. Since the liquids table isn't meant to be open for long times or to be accessed very frequently, I personally don't see a reason why gui.left would be a better position than gui.top."next to the button".

New update: v1.1.0 released!
  • Gui interface, no longer will your massive recipe list scroll off your screen!
  • Search bar: Search for items that you want to know more about. Please note that it doesn't use localised names, but internal names, so it might not find what you are looking for.
  • Hotkey: Press CTRL + F with an item in your hand to directly show that item's information, press CTRL + F with an empty hand to open the search bar.
See the images in the top post for some explanation. There is no image for the fluid interface, but it is still there.

Not Awesome :(

upgraded from previous version.

No icon at top of screen which leads toooo.

Missing sanity check. With nothing in your hand press keybind (which is the same as autofill's btw : so I changed inspector to ctrl-I in mod control settings))
Error MainLoop.cpp:759: Exception at tick 3816954: Error while running event inspect_item (ID 71)
__what-is-it-used-for__/control.lua:299: attempt to index field 'search_flow' (a nil value)
