Mandatory properties

This prototype inherits all the properties from Prototype/Item.

category

Type: string
The name of a Prototype/ModuleCategory. Used when upgrading modules: Ctrl + click modules into an entity and it will replace lower tier modules of the same category with higher tier modules.

tier

Type: uint32
Tier of the module inside its category. Used when upgrading modules: Ctrl + click modules into an entity and it will replace lower tier modules with higher tier modules if they have the same category.

effect

Type: Effect

Optional properties

requires_beacon_alt_mode

Type: bool
Default: true

limitation

Type: table of string
Array of recipe names this module can be used on. If empty, the module can be used on all recipes.

limitation_blacklist

Type: table of string
Array of recipe names this module can not be used on, implicitly allowing its use on all other recipes. This property has no effect if set to an empty table.

Note that the game converts this into a normal list of limitations internally, so reading LuaItemPrototype.limitations at runtime will be the product of both ways of defining limitations.

limitation_message_key

Type: string
Mandatory when limitation is present. The locale key of the message that is shown when the player attempts to use the module on a recipe it can't be used on. The locale key will be prefixed with item-limitation. (the "category" of the locale) by the game.

art_style

Type: string
Chooses with what art style the module is shown inside beacons. See Types/BeaconModuleVisualizations#art_style. Vanilla uses "vanilla" here.

beacon_tint

Type: table of Color
Format:

beacon_tint = { primary = {r=1,g=1,b=1,a=1}, secondary = {r=1,g=1,b=1,a=1}, tertiary = {r=1,g=1,b=1,a=1}, quaternary = {r=1,g=1,b=1,a=1}}

Each key/value pair is optional and defaults to no color.
