As of 0.17 it is no longer possible to blueprint notes on entities as the new modding API made it impossible.
If you want this feature tell the devs to implement this request: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=70315
Attach notes to blueprints/books, combinators, entities... almost everything. Also adds signposts.
All notes are saved when you export a blueprint as a string (but you need the mod to read them).
You can share blueprints and explain how they work using the notes.
Perfect for complicated circuit contraptions.
How to use
Entity notes (attached to buildings)
- Entity notes can be created by clicking on the entity and then clicking on the blue note button on the top left corner of the screen. Notes are saved automatically. The note will be shown fully when hovering over the entity.
Signposts have to be researched first (red science).
- To view blueprint notes hold the blueprint item in your hand and edit the note by pressing the button in the note window. Alternatively you can right click the blueprint in your inventory to edit the note.
Stick to the modded note window when editing title and icons of the blueprint.
Clearing all the icons will restore the default ones.
Notes are saved automatically and will be correctly stored in the blueprint strings for sharing.
