Q: Do I need the Core to use the other modules?
A: Yes! All the other modules use resources that the core module provides. Furthermore, the core module has some a couple of tools built right into it.
Q: What is this madness to the new version numbers?
A: Let's use an example, 1.0101.17 (A.bbcc.DD) how about we break this down!
"A" is for the official mod version,
"bb" is for major changes or fixes iteration,
"cc" is for minor changes or fixes iteration,
"DD" is the compatible Factorio version.
Q: How should we contact you if we have any issues or bugs?
A: email@example.com is where I usually answer if I am actively modding.
