EndgameCombat - Defend your base against lategame enemies with ease

Post by Reika » Thu Aug 17, 2017 3:22 am

Mod Info:
Is your base being overrun with behemoth biters? Are your turret outposts taking tens of seconds, if not more, to take down each biter, letting the spitters do untold damage in the meantime? Do you hate spending hours clearing all the new biter bases that keep appearing near your walls? Does the constant blare of "robot destroyed" alarms irritate you every time a robot goes near even a small biter? Do you get satisfaction from taking a worm shot to the face and shrugging it off like a raindrop, or taking out 37 spawners in one massive strike?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, or near any similar question you can conceive of, you may want to try EndgameCombat. From simple things like better armor, stronger walls, and more powerful turrets, to advanced defences like shield domes and self-healing turrets, to high-power weaponry like napalm and neutron bomb rockets and orbital bombardment of biter bases, to convenience features like crated ammo, logistic robot and power pole defences and researches to boost turret range, it has a great deal of content which is designed to - and more than capable of - making you once again able to stomp the native fauna, regardless of whether they have decided to turn green or grow to the size of dump trucks.

Does not add new enemies or change non-combat (or biter)-related mechanics (eg recipe progression).

For guidelines regarding bug reporting, FAQ, and similar, see my post here.

For some reason Acid Turrets are continually giving the buzzer alert for Turret Fluid Empty despite being completely full. I tried re-placing them and filling them with different acid types, but it made no difference. Weirdly, multiplayer friends connected get the warning when I first place the turrets, but it goes away once they fuel; for me, the warning goes away when they fuel--but as soon as they fire even a drop they'll sound the alarm forever, driving me crazy. :(

Image

That red alert is for Turret Fluid Empty; I only have those three acid turrets.

Image

I replaced them with flamethrower turrets and those did it too.

This is not the place for bug reports, but try the new version I just released. Also, there is a command to silence the sounds temporarily if they grow irritating (/muteAlerts <time><s/m/h>).

Problem with your last update if the game doesn't have enemies, sometimes a warning comes out of enemies incoming, but given that there are no enemies, the game crashes

The /muteAlerts command doesn't work. I can't really enjoy your mod because of the EXTREMELY annoying alerts. Just disable them or offer an option to do so. Thank you!

Yes, it does work. I use it frequently, including less than fifteen minutes ago.

Well, then I am too stupid to figure out how. Could you please write an example for me please? Thanks

It could not be simpler:

Code: Select all

/muteAlerts <time><unit>
For example:

Code: Select all

/muteAlerts 12m

Can't create Piercing Ammo Crate?

Post by Locane » Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:18 pm

I went to finally explore this Piercing Ammo Crate thing, and I see that I have it researched in Military 2, but I can't craft it either personally or in an assembler. It's missing completely.

Anyone else have this issue?

Endgame Combat - Alert noises - HOLY SHIT HOW DO I TURN THEM OFF

Post by Locane » Tue Jan 08, 2019 2:43 am

How do I turn off the alert noises?? It's playing WAY too much and too many times - it will scare the shit out of my while just running around and I have to rush to mute my speakers so it just stops!

I want the alerts, but I don't want the thousands of shrieking / buzzing sounds every time my turrets get attacked.

turn the threshold up in the mod settings or delete the sound file/reference in to that in the mod.

I've been messing with the mod settings to try and get them to just shut up, but nothing fixed it. I'm talking like, just sitting in the living room, playing Factorio with my partner and everything is nice and chill and fine and then out of the bowels of hell SHRIEKING BUZZER NOISE REPEATEDLY PLAYING AND DOES NOT STOP.

I ended up using goldwave to edit the alerts to be WAY quieter, and shortened the horrible buzzing noise. They were way out of whack volume-wise for the rest of the sounds in the game.

Endgame Combat - Slows game to a crawl after encountering Green biters

Post by Locane » Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:34 am

I have a bunch of different saves with Endgame Combat enabled - right after I expanded to an offshoot iron mine waaaayyy down in to biter territory, the game starting running like molasses.

I've done the following testing:
- Disable the mod, load the save: Good
- Enable the mod, load a save previous to the base expansion: Good
- Used a vanilla (non sound-edited) version of the mod version 1.0.180, enable the mod, load the save: Slow

Reika - any insight?

Factorio is also not consuming very much CPU, and only about 6 gigs of RAM:

30% isn't that much. 105% would be a lot and u regulary consume 5 to 8 GB. If this is a problem for you turn down the graphics settings.

It, like engines, requires at least a T2 assembler.

I'd love to, how do I do that?



SuperSandro2000: I did mess with graphics settings a little bit to see if it made any difference, but it didn't. I also have a GTX Titan X (Pascal), so running a sprite game should be no problem.

Also - correction to my original post, the game does NOT run slowly when I load a save with the mod enabled that does not have the base expansion.

Also also - I encountered my first green biter ever after I expanded down there, and then they started spawning in regular attacks on my base in case that gives you any help.
