Carpet Bombing Script

Postby eidolonFIRE_XI » Sun May 13, 2018 1:11 am

Couldn't stand manually clicking all the hives when launching artillery
so I wrote this quick tool.

You trace the border of the nest and it automates the mouse clicks in a grid.

It's not a game mod, nor does it touch any game memory. It strictly listens to mouse/key input and injects fake mouse movement.
This will not break achievements.

Explosions are circles, so instead of a square grid you should use a hex grid for perfect damage coverage :P. Though...as that would be zoom level dependant.. .at what zoom level should it be used?

/me waits for autohotkey port

Zoom level is accounted for. Script listens to mouse wheel so when you first open map just zoom all the way out and the script will "sync" with the game's zoom level.

Good catch on the hex grid.

Does it work on Linux?
EDIT: Never mind just read the readme. Nice to see something fun that works on Linux.
My mods: https://sigma-one.github.io/factorio.html
They include nuclear and military stuff right now.

Why it isn't a mod?

Because I don't know how to write mods... also I didn't want to disturb vanilla.
This way I won't break achievements.
