The player was killed messages now contains a name of entity or player who caused that.
Does this mean we can get an api event stating entity that killed player? :)

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.

Wow, so many bugfixes.

I love the new print functions. No need to write wrapper functions for them anymore. :D

About "Renamed LuaEntity::built_by to LuaEntity::last_user", I am not sure about this...
According to the new minor feature, it sounds like last_user is different from built_by. So I think "Replaced LuaEntity::built_by by LuaEntity::last_user" is better.
And if that is the case, please also update the API doc. It is still " The player who built the entity". :lol:

Something odd with the website and the download. When i refresh/reload the website repeatedly i sometimes get 14.5 as latest version (and no 14.6) sometimes 14.6 (and all the other versions) showing.

I checked with firefox (regular browser) and chrome too where i have never opened factorio website (so no cached version there)

Quite confusing.

Wait a little 0.14.6 had a mayor glitch and will be replaced by 0.14.7 in a few hours - we hope.

You guys are great! :) I was planning on opening my session tonight with three suggestions (here are my notes:)

Code: Select all

1) there needs to be metadata on circuit network settings about who last changed it
right now you can see who built things, belts, poles, etc
but you can't see who last changed a circuit network condition
so people can grief you on that and you can't know who did it
2) reversing splitters doesn't change who built them, so same thing as #1
knowing who last 'modified' an entity would be very useful
3) there needs to be something like in dota where you can "disable help"
as in.. prevent people from putting stuff in your inventory if you don't want them to
it is the most irritating form of griefing imo right now
You guys already jumped the gun and did the first and second thing! Awesome! How about that... 3rd one.. ? No more dumping all your trees in someone's inventory if they don't want it? >.<

Wow quite a lot of bugfixing, keep up the good work, only 7 confirmed left ;)

Soon work on 0.15 will be at full speed.
Want more space restriction ? Or maybe you want to be forced to use train for other thing than ore and oil ? Try Building Platform Mod !

Perhaps one of the devs could whip up a console command to disable deconstruction planners, or even better, restrict deconstruction planner usage to people who have admin powers.

Edit: Or make non-admins only able to deconstruct items they built themselves...
