Suggestion for 'Production Scrap 2' mod.

DellAquila, please add to 'Production Scrap 2' mod a new item 'Quality Module':
* Level 1, -1% of scrap (or +1% yield)
* Level 2, -2% of scrap (or +2% yield)
* Level 3, -3% of scrap (or +3% yield)
with maximum of 100% yield / quality per Assembling Machine (sum of slots + Beacons).

Sorry for that short description, English is not my native language.

I'm not sure what you're suggesting in this idea. Currently, with version 0.1.2, you are able to control the amount of scrap produced with the mod settings. If this is not the solution you are looking for, please try to explain your idea in more detail.

My apologies for the misuse of the term 'scrap'. :oops:

Definitions
In Vanilla Factorio game (0.16-0.17) we have 3 types of modules: speed, efficiency and productivity. Each type of modules have 3 levels of 'strength'.

Assembling machine 2 and Assembling machine 3 have a 2 and 4 module slots respectively. Beacon have 2 module slots.

Production Scrap 2 mod adds to the production process the probability of producing a defective item. Defective items will be recycled to scrap. Scrap will be used in production of other useful items.

Suggestion
Add a new type of modules - quality module. Also with 3 levels of 'strength' (vanilla style).

Quality module inserted into module slot of assembling machine add a little bit of quality to production processes and reduce amount of defective items produced.
Think about 'Quality module' as some form of quality management added per assembling machines (ISO-9000, Six Sigmas, etc.)
More details

@MindFighter:
Wow, you definitely went into more detail, and it worked, because I now understand the concept you were trying to explain.

However, it seems to be a little bit beyond my abilities to make it work in a mod. I know how to code in Lua, but have very limited experience with factorio mods (I have only worked on Production Scrap 2, and created a very small library mod of my own).

I will definitely add it to the list of ideas to improve the mod. Maybe DellAquila or others can help me to figure out the Quality Module implementation. Thanks very much for your idea, and your detailed explanation.

m̶i̶n̶i̶m̶e̶ "More accurate player size compared to vehicles" mod is broken since 0.17.35:

From the changelog:

- Renamed the character entity type and name from "player" to "character" to make it consistent with how we call/access it in all other places.

Hey.

Cant send PMs yet. So using this thread instead. Got the urge to play again with Mining Fluids.

I changed the mod so that there is a burner drill which accepts liquids. That way no electricity is needed for the basic setup.

* Reduced starting inventory
* Allow burner drills again
* Add liquid accepting Bruder Drill

Are there plans to update Production Scrap 2 to 0.18? It's the last mod I need to update my current save.

Nevermind. I had apparently fumbled my reading comprehension roll. This is just a compilation thread. I'll PM the author.
