[Mod Portal] - Invalid Name

Post by TreefrogGreaken » Thu May 03, 2018 9:12 pm

Hello,

Trying to sumbit my mod to the portal but keep getting a Failure on the name in info.json, saying that it isn't formatted correctly, yet I cant see any mistakes?

Code: Select all

{
	"name": "Water As A Resource",
	"version": "0.2.0",
	"factorio_version": "0.16",
	"title": "Water As A Resource",
	"author": "TreefrogGreaken",
	"contact": "",
	"homepage": "",
	"description": "Turns Water into a non infinite resource",
	"dependencies": ["base >= 0.16"]
}
Mod runs fine otherwise ingame.

Hmmmm, but then why does Flow Control work?

Code: Select all

{
	"name": "Flow Control",
	"version": "3.0.3",
	"title": "Flow Control",
	"author": "GotLag",
	"homepage": "https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=94&t=20645",
	"description": "Adds pipes with restricted connections, and several useful valves.",
	"factorio_version": "0.16"
}
I've changed my mod and it has been uploaded successfully. DOesnt explain why Flow Control gets away with it though.

Because it was created before the rule got implemented.

All fine. Short question, short answer. More time to play.
