0.15 - 1.1


Version 1.6.5
Date: 2022.05.16

* Fixed a bug preventing the new controller modifications from
being applied.
Version 1.6.4
Date: 2022.05.15

* Added clamp high values for duration and life_time to help
compatability with other mods.
* Added special adjustment code for the god-controller and other
controllers to allow their movement_speed to be ajusted within
some bounds.
Version: 1.6.3
Date: 2021.02.16

Added a fluid flow adjustment for low UPS based on the height
and base_area of prototype fluid boxes. Thanks to psznm on
the mod discussion forum for the idea. Caution is advised due
to potential for significant fluid oscillation, and it is not
recommended for using at high UPS as at high UPS it will slow
fluid flow dramatically.
Version: 1.6.2
Date: 2020.12.25

Added clamping for values that need a minimum and added
a minimum value for duration to 1 for compatibility with
some mods.
Version: 1.6.1
Date: 2020.12.01

Update mod compatibility version to 1.1.
Version: 1.6.0
Date: 2020.11.10

Added movement speeds and power rates for spidertron,
while the leg speeds have been adjusted, unfortunately
it seems that the torso's speed is not something that
can be changed with prototypes, but it's better at least
than with no adjustment.

Added a clamping for modded and unmodded values that
may exceed certain limits in the game. For example
beams used by picker pipe tools had a damage interval
so high that any increase due to GTTS would cause it to
fail to load. Please let me know of any other such values
that need to be added to exceptions on the mod
discussion forums.

Updated mod compatibility version to 1.0.
Version: 1.5.1
Date: 2020.04.15

Added pollution_absorption_per_second for 0.18, along with 
other miscelaneous adjustments.

Added a fix for adjusting animation speeds for animations
that are stored in the data at the prototype level,
particularly for compatibility with DiscoScience.
Version: 1.5.0
Date: 2020.03.04

This just updates the compatible version for GTTS to 0.18, no
new speeds or durations have been added.
Version: 1.4.2
Date: 2020.03.04

Changed the method of modifying and saving game saved properties
such as day length.

Also fixed spelling of Absorption which will fix the ammount
of pollution added or removed per tick.
Version: 1.4.1
Date: 2019.02.28

Added new speeds and durations for new spitter projectiles and
beams. Also added adjustment for splitter animation speed.
Version: 1.4.0
Date: 2019..02.26

Minor Changes to make compatable with Factorio 0.17. No new
changes added. Minor debugging.
Version: 1.3.5
Date: 2018.07.10

From a suggestion I saw here on the Forums:

Thanks to TurePikachu for the idea, it seems that item positions
belts have 1/256 tile increments, so there are only specific UPS
values that will maintain belt speed accuracy.

The following list shows some of the valid UPS values between
480 and 12, with any value of 480/x maintaining belt accuracy.

480, 240, 160, 120, 96, 80, 60, 48, 40, 32, 30, 24, 20, 19.2, 16, 15 and 12

The mod settings now also have tooltips to provide a bit more
infomration on the settings.
Version: 1.3.4
Date: 2018.06.10

After a brief discussion with Klonan on the Factorio discord, I
learned that there is indeed an easy way to manage day/night
length. I implemented a runtime setting to adjust this for the
main surface (Nauvis), which brings solar power and accumulator
rations in line with vanilla without use of another mod.
Version: 1.3.3
Date: 2018.06.10

This version removes the welcome window due to various potential
issues I don't feel confident in my ability to track down and fix.

It also adds a Safe Mode checkbox that disables all runtime events
meaning that the player must adjust the game speed and hand
crafting rates manually. It also disables all runtime mod settings
changes. This can substantially improve the mdos compatibility
in multiplayer or in concjunction with other mods.
Version: 1.3.2
Date: 2018.01.31

Changed the welcome popup to not appear on tick 1 of the
game so as not to interfere with the game tips that prevents
interaction with the UI.
Version: 1.3.1
Date: 2018.01.31

Fixed the check for the setting used to disasble the welcome
message so that it actually disables the welcome message.

Added an option to close the notification permanenetly for a
save game on the dialog itself so players can supress the
welcome message if it appears too frequently.

Also nil the UI event handler to clean up resources.
Version: 1.3.0
Date: 2018.01.31

Fixed character movement animation, and player mining speed,
along with addition and reorganization of many of the adjusted.
speeds, and the addition of a couple of durations specific to
the new artillery cannon and artillery wagon.

This release introduces a welcome message to help people
set up the mod, and changes the default to a neutral 60 FPS.
The notification can be disabled in the mod options.
Version: 1.2.0
Date: 2017.07.25

Added per map options for adjusting values for pollution
enemy expansions, evolution, and hand crafting rates.

Changed train properties to more accurately adjust their
acceleration and collision damage.
Version: 1.1.2
Date: 2017.07.25

Added the following properties to be adjusted as power
rates used by roboports, solar panels, combinators,
and the rocket silo.

Version: 1.1.1
Date: 2017.07.24

Made adjustments to the "heat_buffer" "max_trasfer"
property of nuclear reactors and heat pipes.
Version: 1.1.0
Date: 2017.07.17

Fixed the events related to changing the game speed
so that it properly updates the game speed when and
only when the mod settings have changed or the mod
or game is updated.

No longer adjusts the values of


Due to problems at low target frame rates and the
minor ingame impact of these values.
Version: 1.0.1
Date: 2017.07.16

Small changes to readme, and removed nonfunctioning
option to immediately reset the game speed of a
running game.
Version: 1.0.0
Date: 2017.07.16

This mod now also adjusts the object weights and the
energy per hit point of collision damage in order to
properly adjust the kinetic energy of vehicles.

The mod also now adjusts mining and repair tool
durability which was based on ticks used.
Version: 0.2.1
Date: 2017.07.01

Excluded "god-controller" from modified prototypes due
to minimum speed issues causing error loading into
Factorio version 0.15.26 .
Version: 0.2.0
Date: 2017.06.28

Added a load of missing modifications to time ratios, in
particular changed accumulator Input and Output rates,
and fixed vehicle power consumption.

Moved the modifications from data-updates to
data-final-fixes as some mods change crafting speeds
in their data-updates, such as Angel's modifications
to Bob's MK 2 Chemical Plants.

Added a wild guess fluid speed modification. Since the
math beind fluid speeds is pretty obscured, and I don't
have a good way of testing it, use at your own risk.
Version: 0.1.1
Date: 2017.06.27

First release to mod portal as mod is stable, and many
of the initial goals are accomplished.
Version: 0.1.0
Date: 2017.06.25

Created mod base and modified a collection of speeds.
