  • Fixed that the electric network for power armor was ran twice per game tick
  • Fixed the "trying to make chunk at unreasonable position" bug related to sending empty unit group somewhere from script.

Scripting

  • Fixed problems in the Lua equipment grid interface: .clear() nolonger crashes, .move() works now, and .generator_energy reports energy as a floating point value.
  • Fixed that the rail directions were messed up when building rails from script. The mechanism, that changes the rail direction based on the position is still used for manual building, to allow the user to build diagonal rails without having to switch direction after every piece.

0.11.1

Bugfixes

  • Removed test code leftover that artificially created desync every 20 seconds.
  • Fixed the localization errors.


0.11.0

Features

  • First version of the multiplayer. Only co-op mode. Simplistic UI. Requires a public IP address for connecting to.Tested mostly on LAN. Replays of MP games don't work yet. Number of players is not limited.
  • Added gates, they open when friendly player comes by. Gates built on straight rails become rail gates.
  • Added a tank. It is way more durable than a car. It has its own set of weapons.
  • Added spitters. They are a next evolution step of biters with a ranged (spitting) attack. They are spawned in their own spawners (different mask color) but only after evolution reaches 0.3.
  • The console works as a chat tool by default now. In-game commands can be used, /w for whisper or /c for Lua command (previous functionality). For more type /help.
  • Highlight of the items added into the inventory (more)
  • Randomized lights turning on and off during dawn and dusk (more)
  • Item entities are now de-constructable.
  • Added a cancel deconstruction option to the deconstruction planner.
  • Copy/paste entitysettings (filters) for cargowagons (like e.g. recipes for assembling machines).

Bugfixes

  • Loads of determinism fixes, mainly for the multiplayer, but the replay stability should improve a lot as well.
  • When game speed is < 1 the GUI doesn't lag.
  • Fixed crash when trying to connect trains in a situation that would result in collision of the new train with other trains (more).
  • Fixed invalid directions in game.create_entity() crashing the game.
  • Calling game.take_screenshot{} no longer crashes the game.
  • Fixed that some entities weren't placable in the map editor (worm corpses).
  • Fixed incorrectly disabled New game -> Custom scenario -> Confirm button.
  • Fixed that turret could be walked over when rebuilt until the game was reloaded.
  • Accidental building is now not possible when viewing the map.
  • Compatibility fix of the new OS X Yosemite.
  • Syntax error in script locale is now shown in-game, without closing the program.
  • Fixed crash when placing blueprints with wires over existing ghosts with wires (more)
  • Fixed the rail segment bug, when mod adds two same rails at the same position.

Graphics

  • New player animation. Three levels depending on the armor. All with masks.
  • Rail endings.
  • Biters/Spitters/Spawners/Worms are now drawn using the same picture with differently colored masks. This allows making different color combinations of biters without rising the video memory requirements.(Mods!)
  • Blood splashes when units die are now procedural.

Balancing

  • Stone walls need research (just red science packs needed).
  • Slower crafting (0.5s->10s) of solar panels and accumulators.
  • Fast/Express splitter are made from the lower variants (same as with transport belts/underground belts)
  • Small electric pole can be used as fuel.
  • Changed wood fuel value from (0.6MJ->2MJ), so 2Xwood made from raw wood has the same fuel value as the original raw wood.

Optimisations

  • Faster map drawing.
  • Optimized main loop. The game will automatically skip rendering when it can't keep up with expected updates per second. LowFPS mode has been removed because this functionality fully replaces it (it automatically lowers FPS when needed).
  • Added Bitmap Memory Caching. This allows to store certain sprites classes (defined by priority) in RAM and load them only when needed. If your computer has little VRAM try setting "Bitmap Caching Level" (in GraphicsSettings) to "very low". This will keep the trains / player and enemies dying animations in RAM, saving a lot of VRAM.

Changes

  • Disabled loading of saves before 0.7.0 version (You can use 0.7.5 to load older saves and re-save them).
  • New physics for cars. Car now does very little damage when colliding.
  • Disabled shooting from a vehicle (capsules can still be thrown).

Modding

  • Added phases to the mod loading. data.lua of all mods is loaded first, then the data-updates.lua and the data-final-fixes.lua as last. This allows mods to change the data of other mods without the need to be last. This is used even in the base game, to add the dust effect when a building is created, so the effect is added to mod buildings as well.
  • Every animation / sprite can now have a color tint.
  • Every animation / sprite can have any number of "overlays" (see how player masks work).
  • Changed the frame_width/frame_height properties of animation to width/height so it is the same as in sprite.
  • Better specification for enemy spawner units (see biter-spawner for example).
  • Furnace and assembling machine have been internally united. They the the same animation and quite a few properties (crafting_categories, energy_usage, crafting_speed, animation, working_visualizations). As a result Furnace can now have fluid boxes and use recipes with multiple outputs (but not multiple inputs).
  • Extended car prototypes to make tanks possible.
  • Electric turret uses ammo_type directly from its attack_parameters.
  • Attack parameters accept warmup field which defines the delay before the effects take place (but animation and sound start playing instantly). This is now used for spitter shooting animation only.

Scripting

  • Lua API for writing / reading player color (i.e. game.player.color = {r=0.7, g=0.4, b=0.3})
  • Fixed saving and loading references to LuaEntity and LuaItem prototypes.
  • Fixed crash when calling game.set_tiles() with invalid parameters.
  • Added New LuaFluidBox object to interact with liquids.
  • Lua API for reading backer names of entities (and writing station-names).
  • Expansion of get_circuit_condition-method; the returned table contains a new key "fulfilled" which indicates if condition is met.
  • Expansion of get/set/clear-filter methods to allow access to cargowagon filters
  • Changed onplayercrafted; it is now called for every item in the crafting queue crafted
  • Added new events:
    • on_robot_built_entity: passes entity built
    • on_robot_pre_mined: identical to on_preplayer_mined_item but called by robots
    • on_robot_mined: identical to on_player_mined_item
    • on_research_started: passes the research name
    • on_research_finished: passes the research finished
    • on_player_rotated_entity: passes the entity rotated
    • on_marked_for_deconstruction: passes the entity
    • on_canceled_deconstruction: passes the entity
    • on_trigger_created_entity: passes the entity created; only called if the trigger creating the entity has been marked with "trigger_created_entity = true"
    • on_train_changed_state: passes the train
  • Added show_entity_info parameter to take_screenshot.
  • Function gettext was removed completely, localized strings are now specified by the curly-brackets {"key", {"key-parameter"}, "literal parameter", 7}
  • Added disconnect_neighbour: used with electric poles; takes the circuit connector to disconnect - none to disconnect standard copper wire.
  • Added ghost-related methods:
    • ghost_name read: the ghost entity name
    • ghost_localised_name read: the localized ghost entity name
    • ghost_type read: the ghost entity type
    • ghost_prototype read: the ghost entity prototype
    • time_to_live read/write: the number of ticks until the ghost dies
  • Expanded direction and recipe to provide write access
  • Expanded methods to support reading/writing from ghost entities: (connect_neighbour, disconnect_neighbour, direction, get_circuit_condition, set_circuit_condition, clear_circuit_condition, orientation, rotateable, recipe, backer_name)
  • Changed set_circuit_condition parameters to: {circuit = index, operator = operator, name = name, count = count}
  • Added Lua API for reading/writing information from special items (ammo, armor, blueprints, tools)
  • Added Lua API for reading/writing armor equipment and equipment grids
  • Expanded methods for trains: locomotives read: returns the locomotives for the train state read: returns the current train state (train states are defined in defines.trainstate)
  • Lua objects can now be passed between scripts with remote.call(). If an invalid object is passed the destination interface receives nil in place of the object.
  • Added game.players[] - returns a table of the current players
  • Expanded player-related methods to pass "player_index" of the player doing the action. If there is no player (map editor) the "player_index" value will be nil. (on_picked_up_item, on_built_entity, on_player_mined_item, on_preplayer_mined_item, on_player_createditem, onplayerrotatedetity)
  • Added "player_index" read to LuaGuiElement
