Faster start sequence / Update check / Load order

Post by ssilk » Sun Sep 13, 2015 1:03 pm

This is about changing the order of the game-start. Currently it does first basic initialization, then loads the mods, then checks for updates.

There are some issues with it:
- all mods needs to be loaded, before the game starts (a modder needs to restart the game every time he changes his mod)
- the update check is after the complete startup
- while updating, there could be more information displayed

Dependend on this are the configuration of the mods.

https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =6&t=16128 Update first on factorio launch BEFORE all other loading.

Related is the runtime loading of mods:

and concepts that enable a "better installation of the mods" which includes in consequence that the mods can be auto-installed and auto-updated

... this stuff is planned! See roadmap:

Centralized mod portal and its integration in the game
Allow loading games with different mod settings (and automatically download the mods if necessary)
There is a tool, that helps installing and configuring:

Far related is how the mods are able to handle problems with other mods:

https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... =6&t=16567 Table of mods for data/control scripts. (read only table?)
