No non-starter resources near spawn in 1.0

Replaces resource spawning system, so that the distances between resources are much bigger. Railway is needed then.

No non-starter resources near spawn in 1.0

Post by Tongs »

I upgraded to Factorio 1.0 and decided to start over. I am using whatever the latest version of RSO is via the in-game update.

When I generate a map, I get the usual starter resources at the center of the map. However, I am not seeing any non-starter resources for over 1km away. I scouted by using console commands to reveal the map, and I had to go up to 1.5 km before I saw any other resources.

Am I just unlucky in the maps I tested, or is there a new bug that wasn't there a week ago?

I'd need to get a save from you or at least map exchange string.
Did you increase the starting area size per chance?
Starting area size is a direct multiplier to area without resources and biters around start so with high value there you will need to travel a bit :D

I did increase starting area size. I thought that might have been the reason, except biters were much closer than the non-starter resources. If they started at roughly the same distance from (0, 0) that would make perfect sense to me and I would be okay with that.

I tried several maps, mostly variants on this exchange string, with the exact same results:

Code: Select all

Then I sped up scouting around with this console command:

Code: Select all

/c local radius=1500
game.player.force.chart(game.player.surface, {{x = -radius, y = -radius}, {x = radius, y = radius}})

You have set starting area size to 600%.
This will set up area around starting point with size of about 1.2k tiles for starting area (approximately circle around starting point).

When I use this map string nearest resources are around 1.3k in x or about 900,900 on diagonal which seems correct.

Thanks. Appears to be a non-issue, then.

I guess I never noticed until now. I thought RSO ignored starting area size for resource generation, as opposed to biter generation. Clearly, I thought wrong.
