Loot Chest+

by hanes

Automagically collects all the loot, on all surfaces. Useful in combination with artillery. Convenient for mods that add loot when aliens die, like Bob's mods, Necromant, Reika's EndgameCombat, Alien Loot Economy and Alien Space Science. The chest acts now as a passive provider chest and gets unlocked with logistic-robotics tech.

b alien drops from loaded save don't get detected

2 years ago

not sure if you're aware, if this is a intended thing, or a limitation of factorio, but alien drops on surface don't end up in chest from a loaded save (only drops from aliens that die while the chest is placed seem to be going in)

The script only fires when an entity dies and checks for loot, that's intended behavior.

can confirm. i relodaed / ran a few other tests and checked entity-drop locations from earlier in the save and it picked them up once another alien died. i thought it would also fire / trigger the scan for alien loots when the chest was placed. my bad.
