Add force: all or similar to give-item modifier

Post by Berserker55 »

The https://wiki.factorio.com/Types/GiveIte ... rPrototype can award items upon tech completion. It appears if you want that item to be awarded to each player you have to set up an on completion handler. It would be nice if there was an additional field to tell it to award the items to the whole force and show this in the tech tooltip.

The give-item modifier does give to all players already.

Then there seems to be a bug with that, as I had players complain it would only give to one player chosen seemingly at random, but consistently the same. I then implemented a on event handler and players became happy about the problem fixed.

Ah, my mistake. Looking over it again it will only give to all players if the amount is set to maximum (as in fill the inventory). A weird setup.

That ... is a bit odd, yeah. I like that it overflows into the rest of the team, but I think it should be documented better how it works then and the give to all as an option would still be neat. Right now, while my solution works, I lose the tooltip thing that tells the player they'll get X of Y items.
