0.7.0

Features

  • The factory now produces pollution. Pollution is visible on the map after pressing ALT key. Pollution is mostly produced by mining drills, things that burn coal, assembling machines and modules.
  • Enemy creepers were replaced by small, medium and big biters.
  • Enemy turrets were replaced by small, medium and big shooting worms.
  • Enemy attacks are triggered by pollution accumulated around their base (no time based attacks from the script anymore).
  • Enemies move and attack in groups.
  • Enemies wander around their base when they have nothing to do.
  • Enemies call for help when attacked.
  • Enemies can create new bases.
  • Added new weapons/ammos: shotgun, combat shotgun, explosive rockets.
  • Added upgrades (research) for all types of ammo and for laser turrets as well.
  • Added concept of capsules (usable items). Capsules are used from quickbar. Quickbar shortcut (1-5 shift 1-5) applies the capsule at mouse position. Current capsules: basic grenade, poison cloud capsule (doesn't damage buildings), slowdown capsule (doesn't work on buildings), combat robot capsules (spawns robot(s) that fight the enemies)
  • The player movement is slower when he is shooting (differs per weapon).
  • Added Modular armors with placeable equipment. The armor is opened by right clicking it. Equipment can be: night vision, speedup exoskeleton, energy sources, batteries, energy shields, laser defense, discharge defense
  • Weapons have different damage types, entities have different resistances.
  • Added production statistics similar to the electricity statistics. (on the P key by default)
  • "Shift-build" - when building with shift the settings of the last built entity of that type are applied. This works for assembling machine, smart/logistics chest and inserter, includes circuit network wiring and internal settings.
  • Laboratories and mining drills are module compatible.
  • Logistic robots try to not mix different items in storage chests if possible.
  • Placing resources now uses the "autoplace" mechanism as well (see Lua data files).
  • Better labeling of map generation parameters (swapped frequency and size), frequency and size are less dependent on each other.
  • Automatic updates can use proxy server.

GUI

  • Extended tips and tricks.
  • Mark missing elemental ingredients in the recipe tooltip as red.
  • Show cooldown of weapons/usable items in the slot.
  • Debug settings can be changed in game (F4 triggers the GUI).
  • Flying text notification when a train has no path.
  • Automatically connect rolling stocks into trains when placed nearby with indication.
  • Show direction of train stop when to be built/selected.
  • Show connected/to be connected rails that are selected/to be build
  • Double click in load/save dialog opens/saves the game.
  • Technologies in the technology GUI are sorted (using order string)

Graphics

  • Replaced enemy placeholders (units, turrets).
  • New selection boxes.
  • New arrows for inserters / mining drills.

Changes

  • Removed the filter inserter (merged with smart inserter), all filter inserters are transformed into smart inserters.
  • Land mine has bigger damage radius and trigger.
  • Disabled loading of saves before 0.3.0 version (You can use 0.6.4 to load any old saves and re-save them).
  • Enemies can destroy all player creations they find (not only labs, turrets, logistic robots, train and player as it was now)
  • Long hand inserter puts the item into the distance 2 (instead of 1).
  • Decreased the car health from 2000 to 500, laser from 350 to 250.
  • Increased the wall health bar from 200 to 350 and increased health of most of the player structures.
  • Enemy spawners and turrets slowly regenerate health.
  • Electric pole connects to all poles in the reach with no common neighbor. The limit of 5 connection per pole stays. Building electric poles with shift pressed builds it without any connections.

BugFixes

  • Straight belt pushes items from the center to one of the sides, so randomly inserted items on belt shouldn't cause sticks in the U turns.
  • Indestructible objects are now handled properly in the path finding.
  • Fix of game being very slow with lots of logistic robots with no place to put items (no free storage chests).
  • Fixed several critical bugs in the map editor.
  • Fixed of confused logistic system when rebuilding logistic chests
  • Shortened number format works properly for large negative numbers.
  • Fixed script crashes when using god mode in freeplay.
  • Fixed armor relative protection (It was inverted and 10% protection made 90% instead)
  • Player inventory didn't get autosorted when item was crafted or delivered by logistic robot.
  • Player crafting GUI didn't get updated (number of items craftable), when player received items from logistic robots or dropped item on ground.
  • Fixed sharp edges in new maps.
  • Fixed crash when player hovers ammo placed in quickbar.
  • Fixed bug of losing bonus production in furnace/assembling machine when the output slot is full (the production will stop instead).
  • Item tooltip is updated when the item on selected slot changes and closed when the slot is cleared.

Optimisations

  • Mining drills deactivate when the resources run out.
  • Speedups in the path finding (though path finding around very big lakes is still slow).
  • Speedups in enemy movement.

Scripting

  • Fixed Lua GUI element#isvalid function, it threw error when the element was invalid.
  • Added Lua object for entity/item prototype. All prototypes can be acquired by game.(entity/item)prototypes.

  • Added way to migrate/rename entity/item prototypes.
  • Introduced moddable game wide map settings in data/base/prototypes/map-settings.lua.
