This is about handling of alerts:
- how they will appear for the player
- how they can be handled inside (and outside) of the factory. Also automation/automated handling
- how to get more/useful information from an alert.

Great collaboration of information. We might even see some these features in 0.13 because I know Rseding91 had said they wanted to open the GUI up a but more for modding.

Maybe this is worthy to be considered: No Alert, when damage is done On Screen -> viewtopic.php?f=6&t=23626

At the very least it would be nice to have more event types in the Mod API: http://lua-api.factorio.com/latest/defi ... nes.events

That way Modders can do whatever they want with Alerts (personally I'd like to see someone work on an alert stream published to a log which could be read by a third-party program, i.e. group-server events published to my Android phone, or local-game map events on my secondary monitor with gps coordinates/mini-map).

If the end goal being to automate everything, it should include the response to some of these events :lol:

It shouldn't ever buffer an alarm, it should delete any alarm which would sound before the minimum timer has expired. Alarms should sound immediately or never.

I really would like to see some kind of alert heat map and graph.


In map view, you would have an the option to set the time frame that you want to view (just like in the power readout graph screen) and a heat map of alerts so you can quickly identify where you need to concentrate your defenses. The more alerts / damage / destroyed buildings there are in a given area, the hotter the area will appear on the map.

Clicking on an area of the heat map will bring up a graph (like the power readout graph you get when you click a power poll) that will show alert data from the near by surrounding area (adjustable size?) where you clicked over x amount of time. It would show data like: Number of turrets that engaged the enemy, buildings damaged, buildings destroyed , enemy strength, enemy number, enemy type, average turret ammo level , ammo spent , etc.
