Extreme World Gen?

Post by DWolf0_o » Wed Sep 04, 2019 6:52 am

Does anyone know how to set the frequency, size, and richness past what the sliders allow because I want the resources even further apart and I would like to avoid RSO but I'm willing to do file editing or whatever I gotta do?

I tried to get a railworld with extreme low frequency settings with the commandline:

I called

Code: Select all

../bin/x64/factorio --map-gen-settings map-gen-settings.example.json --map-settings map-settings.example.json --map-preview-size 2048 --map-preview-scale 2 --generate-map-preview ./preview/
The settings files i used are in attachments and has entries like this:

Code: Select all

...
"autoplace_controls":
  {
    "coal": {"frequency": "0.01", "size": 3, "richness": 1},
    "stone": {"frequency": "0.01", "size": 3, "richness": 1},
    "copper-ore": {"frequency": "0.01", "size": 3,"richness": 1},
    "iron-ore": {"frequency": "0.01", "size": 3, "richness": 1},
    "uranium-ore": {"frequency": "0.01", "size": 3, "richness": 1},
    "crude-oil": {"frequency": "0.01", "size": 3, "richness": 1},
    "trees": {"frequency": 1, "size": 1, "richness": 1},
    "enemy-base": {"frequency": 1, "size": 1, "richness": 1}
  },
However, the generated previews show almost no differences if frequencies are lower than ~0.10 for the same seed, a bit change in starting area, but thats all.
It seems, it cannot be lower than a certain value.

Or what is wrong?
Frequency 0.01
Frequency 0.10
I use standalone Linux version 0.17.67 on Linux mint

It's hard to guess, where you actually struggling

Did you check the link from Bilka (https://wiki.factorio.com/Command_line_parameters) under chapter "Creating a map from custom settings"?
There are also examples, how to call it.

Maybe also this could be interesting if you don't know, where to find the factorio executable and such.
https://wiki.factorio.com/Application_directory
You also find example settings files in the data folder.

Command line usage itself can be looked up in the internet and is not factorio specific.

Regarding frequency settings, I was not able to get much lower frequency than the in-game 17%. 10% was not much difference, 1% and 0.000001% was the same as 10%. Only 0% changed it to no patch at all :P
But maybe, I’m doing something wrong.
