Release: 09-04-2016

Recipes
Thanks to Winseven4lyf for providing better textures than the ones in the screenshots above! (Better red colour)

I want ideas! I need another use for diesel fuel, not just diesel barrel and Rocket Fuel.

As far as balancing is concerned 1x diesel barrel is worth 4x solid fuel's fuel value, but with a little extra. The idea is that it lasts longer and per stack is more efficient too.

Hey,
1 Really cool MOD.
2 Why you make directly a Barrel? A Barrel out of nothing?
why make it not 1 as Fluid than with a Barrel as item or make a other kind of Item.

Th reason why it is not like crude oil in the sense of barrels, is because as it is being used for boilers and trains etc, there is no way to return the barrel. Meaning that you would be paying a barrel for no real reason other than a one way storage (as you don't get the barrel itself back). I didn't feel a solid block format was really appropriate either, as I can't visualize diesel being in that format.

I did mention that I didn't want to add diesel as a fluid as it was only this one item that would come out of it.

I can, though, change and add a fluid if you would like?

Or perhaps a solid cube format instead?

Ty for your response :)

So did you guys want diesel fuel as a liquid or not? If it is a yes, then I need another use for diesel liquid. I did have an idea that it could be used in combination with the Diesel Generator mod, but that is currently just an idea :)

Please vote if you have tested this mod out :)

Rocket fuel? Is that not already in the game? Or did you mean to make that an alternative recipe to the default rocket fuel recipe (which i think is 1x solid fuel for 20 seconds)

Aircraft fuel? What is it used to power? I do not have an Aviation mod :)

I can for sure add the alternative recipe for the rocket fuel.

I have not discovered the new end game in a play-though so I think that is on my to-do list before I dip into modding the end game (i have another idea for an end-game mod)

So, I am going to add Diesel Liquid into the game. I need ideas for the recipe tree.

So from light oil + heavy oil = diesel fuel

diesel fuel + barrel = diesel barrel.

diesel barrel can be used in its own right to fuel stuff

diesel barrel + diesel fuel + (small) petroleum = rocket fuel

These are all done, now to do a bit of problem solving with a migration script and it should be released this weekend! (after i release a new mod tomorrow)

Quick question: Do want to have rocket fuel still craftable with solid fuel? (I think I have to do a bit more than item tweaking to get it to be replaced by my recipe)

Re: [MOD 0.12.x] Diesel Fuel 0.0.2

Post by MrDrummer » Sat Oct 17, 2015 4:00 pm

Update:
Version 0.0.2:
- Added Diesel Fluid
- Added a fill/unfill recipe for the barrel.
- Changed the vanilla recipe for rocket fuel to use diesel fuel instead of solid fuel.

Note that anyone who has researched the tech for 0.0.1 will have to research again in order to unlock the new recipes and items.

Just so everybody knows, this works with 0.12.20 without any need to update.

Wow! Thanks! :)

They look a lot more crisp in colour! Really makes a difference.

I'll update the mod later today (if I remember)



On a side note, what do you think of this mod? I am unsure as to how unbalanced this mod is, so feedback is welcome :)

When I update this mod (soonTm), I shall add it to SpaceDock, to try and encourage those from KSP to look into Factorio. (for those who somehow have not heard of Factorio!) Perhaps is y'all could follow it when I release it, that may increase the likelihood of said players (as well as help out this mod =D )

You actually need 128x research images, was just a *bit* lazy ;) Will make 128x research nowish
EDIT: Took around 1 min. PS I actually had to use the "Curves" feature of PDN. Hue/Sat was doing nothing [Maybe because oil is black, I used oil as base].

Also did you use the DieselCube? I sorta made that texture because using the barrel up seems a "little" strange ;)
EDIT: I'm probably gonna use my mod's compat feature to make flamethrower ammo out of diesel, just a heads up :D
2ND EDIT: Also 60 secs for the tech is too long. use 30 instead ;)

The idea of diesel barrel is so that you can transfer from liquid to "solid" form easily - like crude oil barrel into liquid.

If you are saying to make a recipe from diesel liquid into cubes (as the actual fuel source, rather than the barrels), that is possible, but I have not got my head around the migration scripts yet, so it will be a bit finicky to make the transfer from barrels being the energy usage into the cubes. I like the idea though.

P.S. Thanks for making diesel fuel an optional dependency for your mod :)
