[MOD 0.12.X] Explosive Termites 1.1.7: extreme deforestation

Post by Rseding91 »

This mod adds two new items: Explosive Termites and Alien Explosive Termites

For when you don't want trees and you don't want trees anywhere near you - simply throw them at the nearest forest like any capsule and watch the trees go away :)

A little up to give my advice :

That's allmost one of the first thing i do on a map. Anyway, i never go out home without some termites to clear the map.
But that's a little overpowered/price.

Suggestions :
  • Make them researchable, with T1 -> T5
  • Make the basic one make only "little" hole 10-25 tile long, and then make other Tier that cost more to create.
  • Make some fallen tree appear here and here after we use it.

Updated to 1.1 with a small bugfix: fixed termites not working if you saved and re-loaded mid termite detonation.

EDIT:

Updated to 1.1.2 with a small bugfix: fixed "Unknown key: entity-name.termite-detonation" on the death screen.

Bug on linux:

15:41:14 Error None: Error when opening /home/cube/development/factorio/Factorio/mods/Explosive Termites/graphics/Termite.png: No such file or directory

It's because the image has extension .PNG instead of .png

That should be fixed now.

Would love to see this. Especially when I don't want to clear an entire forest area; just a conveniently-wide space for a road.

Btw. is there some simple mod which allows you to manually replant trees. I was looking at treefarm, but a description is non-existent and I don't really need to automate tree harvesting, I have 30k wood. But I would love to be able to fill some spaces with trees and so.

Treefarm's Germlings are indeed plantable on open ground. Grab Treefarm and just ignore all the stuff other than the germlings?

Clearing trees doesn't get you rocket defense or protection you from biters so I don't see how it's overpowered.

The point of the termites is extreme deforestation. If you just want to clear a few trees out or a small path that's what robots/poison capsules are for.

They also don't drop logs as an additional balance point: fast removal of trees but you don't get any of the wood.

I updated the mod to 0.11 and it should be fully compatible with MP as well (assuming no MP bugs de-sync the game).

Hadn't looked at this mod before, but found myself on a particularly forested map in my latest game. DAYAM you weren't kidding when you said explosive (or extreme, for that matter) :lol: Love it, thanks for making it :)

Finally got around to updating this mod since I've been using it more in my single player game and just wasn't happy with the current termites :)

Changes: slight performance improvements and a new type of Termite (Alien Termite).
