Find production on base, amnesia problem ;)

Post by cmnielsen »

Hi.

Is there any way (maybe a mod) that allow me to search for a specific production machine? I guess I'm suffering from amnesia, as I cannot remember where I made the production. An example, I have only one machine producing hand grenades, but I can't remember where I put it and I cannot find it anywhere. Is there a way to search for it?

Side question, when is a base large enough to be considered as a mega base?

Have a nice weekend.

It might help to enable the map feature that shows the machine recipe. And I think megabase is usually considered 1000 science per minute for 10 hours. But I'm sure that's open to interpretation! :D

I dunno about mods, but this little script may help:

Code: Select all

/c for i,e in ipairs(game.surfaces["nauvis"].find_entities_filtered{type='assembling-machine'}) do
    local r = e.get_recipe()
    if r ~= nil and r.name == 'grenade' then
        game.player.print(string.format("[gps=%f,%f]", e.position.x, e.position.y))
    end
end

Something like 1000 SPM (science packs per minute), usually.

Machine recipe is enabled, just can't find it :roll: :roll:

1000 science per minute is that all sience or white only?

Press ~ to open chat console, paste script there. It will spam some GPS tags to your chat. Click them and you will see location on the map.

If you need to fine another recipe, replace 'grenade' with something else.

P.S. Commands disable achievements, so you may want to reload the save after that.

Hope it helps.

1000 of each pack. Excluding military, probably.

IMO, excluding military makes the whole thing significantly easier, and it's not a mega- or giga- without all 7.

Found some mods that may be useful:

Thank you very much! Beastfinder mod is super handy. I can't tell you how many times I have wound up running all over my base looking for that chest full of copper plates, or copper wire, or landfill.
