Ability for player to autorun without holding movement key

Post by TackleMcClean » Sun Jan 27, 2019 2:34 pm

I made a mod (I wasn't the first one either although other mods are outdated) that lets the player autorun.

The need came from having some wrist/hand problems and running long distances is a bit annoying when you have to hold down a movement key during that time. What I really want to do is something more productive, like looking at the map to plan stuff etc.

My mod:
https://mods.factorio.com/mod/tackleautorun

The mod works very well for me. I wish I could play multiplayer with it, I really miss it when it's not there.
Perhaps with native support for this it could be solved in a better way? Some other trigger for it to start, I don't know.

With that in mind, I wish it was part of Factorio per default.

Yes.

I'd also like to see click-to-move mechanics. Not because I would use them, but because they provide a huge accessibility benefit, using almost entirely already implemented functionality..
