[0.15] Folks Factorio Fabrications

Post by folk » Sat Apr 29, 2017 9:56 am

Welcome to Folks Factorio Fabrications
(or the "how I learned to stop worrying and finally created a thread"-thread)

I've made a few mods, and I don't want to manage one thread for each of them, because they're all quite tiny. So this thread is for all of them, if that's acceptable. And I do read the Discussion section on my addons from time to time, but I understand that some people want to contact authors on the forum. So here I am.

Most of the addons are quite automagic. Enjoy!
If you have any feedback of any sort, please do let me know.

Image
Most likely automatically fills in things properly, probably. Preferrably both fuel and ammunition, if possible.
Fills in ammunition and fuel in all cars/tanks, locomotives, turrets, furnaces, and other things automatically. Should support anything added by 3rd party mods, no configuration necessary. Uses the best-available fuel and ammo, determined by fuel value and sort order, respectively.

Image
A remake of the classic Shuttle Train by Simwir.
Please read the description, as the mod is quite different from the original. I have contacted simwir through his github page about this remake. I don't know what "lite" means either, but I had to call the mod _something_ :-P

Image
Deactivates personal roboports while you are travelling in a vehicle, at speeds above the configured threshold.
Should be simple enough to understand, if you ignore the options! Srsly, there are too many mods that add random robot type upgrades! So all numbers in the mod are based on the vanilla robot speed; 0.06 * upgrade percent.

Image
Allows you to put fish in water and breed them. Revolutionary technology.
Not much to say about this one, clearly an essential addon.

Image
Instantly investigates and indiscriminately incinerates indistinguishable items from your inventory. Specifically, blueprints.
Makes sure that your main inventory never contains more than one copy of the same blueprint or book, by label.

Image
Instantly pops you into a filtered vehicle when you place it within reach of the player character.
And that's it. Filter a quickbar slot to a vehicle, and off you go!

Image
Creates tile blueprints from your text input that are easily visible on the map. A floor printer, if you will.
Adds a new 0.15-style mod button on the left side that creates blueprints of your text input. If anyone wants to make a better font than the one I did, please do :-) Or a smaller one.

Image
Adds a new kind of train cargo wagon that connects to the logistic system in weird and mysterious ways.
Err, you should probably read the mod description for this one.

Image
Creates tiny equipment modules that tries to set the color of whatever you insert them into.
This one is exceptionally useless. Except for myself, probably. Hopefully at least 2-3 others will find it fun and/or useful.

Image
Provides a control unit you can place next to radars that outputs the number of enemy and friendly units found in the radars permanent coverage area.
I wrote this to use it alongside Robot Army. However, it scans for any "unit" type, so it probably has lots of uses that I haven't thought about :-)

Image
Allows you to spray-paint decals on the ground.
Automatically gives you a book full of decal-sprays. Note that as of 0.15.3, the new book and blueprint type that the mod adds are still visible in the blueprint library, although they are useless there. Rseding91 had fixed this for the next version of factorio, so they will not show up there.

Would it be a major effort to integrate auto blueprintify with textplates mod that makes letters for nice sings?

I know that I would have a lot of use for such a thing.

Can you try 0.1.3, please?
If it doesn't work then, I will need a list of your addons.
If you give me that list, I will fix it.

It loads now.

And it works nicely, if you dont have FARL.
I think FARL is adding his own grid that does not support your module

If you want it to work with FARL please just use another mod that adds grids, like https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Optera/VehicleGrid

Ohh, I dont mind. I had FARL there by mistake, I never use it.
Multiple times I said myself that I need to remove it after I close the client but I always forget. Now it was removed for good :P

But, maybe change the description with a more visible warning about using with FARL also equiring another mod instead of the current suggestion of using another mod to increase grid size

Well you beat me to it!
To make your grids work with farl just modifiy the farl grid,
https://github.com/Nexela/Shuttle-Train ... -fixes.lua

Also please allow a hotkey to find closest station (or the one selected) for calling a shuttle too

Done and done! Thank you for the awesome .luacheckrc, it's way more detailed than my own crappy one.

Added a new mod now: https://mods.factorio.com/mods/folk/fol ... equipment/
It's very strange.

I have not forgot about the Text Plates thing.

Hi, having some problems with Shuttle train Lite, using /reset command did make it show the correct names the only problem is it only shows 1 page of stations and the <- -> arrow keys are gone, when removing the mod the top-left icon is still there with the following message: "Unknown key:"Shuttle-lite.button-tooltip" Any suggestions?

Also please make a way to disable the station list period.

Can just open the map, find the station and Ctrl-J on it :)

Also feature request. Any train you are IN can be a shuttle train if it has no station records set OR it has 1 station set and it matches train.station

Feel free to steal anything you want from the 2.00 fork on github :)

Will be fixed next update.
The problem with the top-left icon being there is a bug in Factorio. It creates those icons for the mod.

Done next update.

How can I tell which station the player is pointing his cursor at? I made it for next update so that you can click the stations and Ctrl+J-go there, but I can't find any property on luaplayer/luacontrol that tells me which station the mouse is _hovering over_?

Hello!

I added shuttle train lite to an already existing .15 MP server, it started causing instant desyncs when the second player connected. Removed the mod and the problem went away.. Not sure exactly what the cause is unfortunately but the mod seems to have triggered it.

Thank you, unfortunately I have no way of investigating this for the next week.

Sorry I should have expanded on this, I meant to remove the whole station list/button, Probably a /shuttletrain command to enable/disable the GUI stuff

I was refering to player.selected from the zoomed in map :)

Without the module, but only in trains that meet the criteria above (player is IN the train etc)
