Se~no to traditional belts and tiresome walking with these ridiculous ways to transport items and yourself around your factory. Now with improved overflow prevention that actually works Features: Thrower inserters, train ramps, player launchers, bounce pads, ziplines, and more
Version: 0.8.6 Date: 6/11/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed a crash with Eradicator's Screenshot Maker Deluxe 3.0. Capsule compatibility overall should be improved even more as a result. Reported by Pi-C - Fixed migration crashes when adding the mod to an existing save, specifically 0.2.0 and 0.2.1 migration files. Reported by MasterBuilder
Version: 0.8.5 Date: 6/3/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed a crash with Combat Robots Overhaul. Capsule compatibility overall should be improved as a result. Reported by Porkchop13 - Not really fixing anything but added the invisible cars used for train jumps and ziplines to AAI Vehicles blacklist. Recommended by Pi-C
Version: 0.8.4 Date: 5/31/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed a crash where the stray zipline removal added in 0.7.7 was removing the invisible car guiding train jumps with huge play-of-the-game detective work from Pi-C
Version: 0.8.3 Date: 5/30/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed a crash that would happen if a thrower was removed in the middle of finding its target for overflow prevention. Reported by saaadel.
Version: 0.8.2 Date: 5/30/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed a different but similar crash from saves that had the old overflow prevention transitioning to the new one. Reported by Legowaffles
Version: 0.8.1 Date: 5/29/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed crash from saves that had the old overflow prevention transitioning to the new one. Reported by Legowaffles
Version: 0.8.0 Date: 5/29/2021 Changes: - Updated overflow prevention code. Throwers will now freeze if it detects that the item won't fit in to the destination inventory taking into account items in the air and items bouncing through bounce pads. Of note, throwing onto a curved belt is still a bit off, but throwing onto straight belts work quite well.
Version: 0.7.7 Date: 5/3/2021 Bugfixes: - Corrected contribution attribution in the changlog last patch - Set the "not-rotatable" flag for the Hatch. Doesn't really matter but it keeps the selection box correct - Added the zipline components to the periodic valid check to delete lingering ziplines that might come up. Reported by davfrs - Fixed that the rail signal tutorial crashed for some reason. Reported by saaadel
Version: 0.7.6 Date: 4/8/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed crash caused by inserters that run on fluids. I didn't even know that was possible. Reported by kewne7768 - Made thrower inserters use 1J to stretch so that in times of low energy for burner/fluid thrower inserters, the arm wouldn't stretch out - Incorporated fix by killwort on Github that prevents crashes when an inserter tries to throw an invalid item. These are usually procedurally generated items that happen to be created after my mod is loaded (probably).
Version: 0.7.5 Date: 3/24/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed crash caused when a train's destination station's train limit was changed mid-jump. Reported by DrogiwanCannobi - Fixed some issues with trains disconnecting and driving about wildly if they get inturupted mid-jump - Fixed animations of trains going off a magnet ramp then bouncing onto a directed train bounce pad
Version: 0.7.4 Date: 3/19/2021 Changes: - Reactivated the Vehicle Wagons 2 interaction that displays its 'vehicle lost' message when a vehicle wagon crashes from a train jump
Version: 0.7.3 Date: 3/18/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed crash that would happen if Vehicle Wagons 2 was NOT installed. lmao whops
Version: 0.7.2 Date: 3/16/2021 Additions: - Official compatability for Vehicle Wagons 2. Vehicles on wagons are now retained after a jump. Changes: - Magnet Train Ramp buffer recharge rate increased from 4MW to 40MW. The slow recharge rate was causing problems when multiple trains tried using the ramps one right after another Bugfixes: - Fixed the dynamic train sprite pulling some more to improve compatability and reduce crashes. Tested with Vehicle Wagons 2 and Schall's Armored Train from report by rEvolutionTU. - Fixed crash when a train's scheduled destination station was removed between jumping and landing. Added valid check for station upon landing. Reported by DrogiwanCannobi.
Version: 0.7.1 Date: 2/21/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed that train ramps didnt work with blueprints and copy/paste. It turns out I left the "non-rotatable" flag in which caused the ramps to always paste in the default orientation. Also adjusted some other things about ramps and magnet ramps to work better with bots, blueprints, etc. You still have to set up magnet ramp ranges after they are built though.
Version: 0.7.0 Date: 2/7/2021 Bugfixes: - Now pulls train sprites dynamically for each carriage so that modded carriages should retain their image during a jump rather than using vanilla ones based on their type - Fixed some icon incompatability with some mods, specifically using Industrial Revolution 2 for testing, which should now work. - Adjusted the thrower generation criteria so that some creative type inserters don't make thrower varients
Version: 0.6.14 Date: 2/4/2021 Changes: - Changed thrown items to be able to land in cargo wagons Bugfixes: - Fixed that changing surfaces (like when entering a Factorissimo building) while ziplining would cause a crash/softlock. Reported by saaadel. - Fixed some missing locale names
Version: 0.6.13 Date: 1/6/2021 Bugfixes: - Fixed crashes related to adjusting thrower range before placing. Based on reports by SoupGuyMan and GeneralTank. - Fixed that adjusting range before placing could be done before the adjusting reasearch was done.
Version: 0.6.12 Date: 12/30/2020 Changes: - Changed zipline crank to boost while holding the shoot key rather than on clicking. 100% more usable but 75% less meme. Suggested by Tellingohn.
Version: 0.6.11 Date: 12/26/2020 Additions: - You can now adjust thrower inserter range before placing it. Press Interact while it's in your cursor to adjust range like how you would while it's placed. This is done using dynamic custom blueprints so note that by default Interact has the same hotkey as Factorio's new "Flip Blueprint Horizontally" key, and you might want to change one of them so they don't clash - Zipline Crank Controller. Equiping this zipline controller varient allows you to boost your speed by clicking. Suggested by Tellingohn
Version: 0.6.10 Date: 12/19/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed that the saves wouldn't load if the fuel with the fastest speed multiplier was removed.
Version: 0.6.9 Date: 12/3/2020 Nice: Ayyy: - lmao - *dabs* Bugfixes: - Fixed some issues with multiplayer and zipline/train jump/player launcher interactions. Disconnecting and reconnecting to a multiplayer game mid-animation should work without problem now. Reported by Galapagon - Fixed that the changelog wasn't working in game for some reason. I don't really know how I even fixed it. Reported by MPeti1
Version: 0.6.8 Date: 12/3/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed that trains with multiple locomotives would sometimes seperate during a jump if the locomotives used fuels with different top speeds - Mooeing-747: Fixed interaction with station limits so that a spot will be reserved for a train during a jump for it to use again when it lands. Changes: - Changed collision mask for the train ramp again to hopefully be more universally compatible with the new signal change in 1.1+
Version: 0.6.7 Date: 11/27/2020 Changes: - Compatability fix for Space Exploration because apparently SE changes signal collision boxes and apparently all signals have to have colliding collision masks
Version: 0.6.6 Date: 11/27/2020 Changes: - Mooeing-747: Updated for Factorio 1.1 with migrations and prototype updates
Version: 0.6.5 Date: 11/22/2020 Bugfixes: - Mooeing-747: Added raise_destroy = true to crashlanding trains - Mooeing-747: Added missing valid check to guide locomotives - Fixed crash from on_entity_cloned - Fixed crash with experimental overflow setting when deleting entity target of a thrower Changes: - Mooeing-747: Reorganized train jump animation code - Mooeing-747: Changed shadows to rotate and train sprites to scale in size during jump. - Made shadows fade with jump height
Version: 0.6.4 Date: 11/8/2020 Additions: - Payload Wagon. Designed specifically to weaponize the train ramp. When it crash lands, primable items inside will prime, fly out and activate near the point of impact. Deliver all your explosive weaponry directly to the point of use. Changes: - Changed damage radius of crash landing carriages from 4 to 7 tiles - Code restructuring by Mooeing-747 for easier navigation, control.lua file broken up into a bunch of smaller files - Primed projetiles are now a lighter shade of red
Version: 0.6.3 Date: 11/1/2020 Bugfixes: - Fix from Mooeing-747 so cargo wagon filters are set before the items are put back in so that items retain proper order and placement after a jump - Fixed pushed trains going backwards upon landing if the cargo wagon was facing backwards - Changed landing trains to have a positive speed rather than a negative by default in cases where it doesn't know which way to go
Version: 0.6.2 Date: 10/21/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed two issues with train landing thanks to contribution from Mooeing-747. They are: - Fixed train freezing and crashing upon landing for trains that are being pushed from the back rather than pulled from the front. - Fixed that trains didn't take non-default paths for forks in the rail very close to where trains land, ie while the back half of the train is still in mid air.
Version: 0.6.1 Date: 10/19/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed a few issues with the magnet train ramp setting based on crash report from Cobalt6700
Version: 0.6.0 Date: 10/4/2020 Additions: - Magnet Train Ramps. Powerful electromagnets let you control the landing point of a ramp regardless of a train's speed. It's like train tunnels but more fun. - Recipe to turn open chests back into regular chests. Recommended by saaadel Bugfixes: - Semi-fixed issue where trains that were landing and then jumpped again before the whole train landed would cause the train to fall apart. Now so long as at least one carriage fully on the ground at all times, chaining jumps should work fine
Version: 0.5.5 Date: 9/12/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed that the game would crash if you died while ziplining. Found by F0x06.
Version: 0.5.4 Date: 9/9/2020 Additions: - Added setting to disable the base thrower/hatch/player laucher features of the mod. Slap F in the chat. Requested by Ki-Tan. Tech adjusted accordingly. Bugfixes: - Fixed that the motion guide for the zipline (which is the same as for the train ramp) would be disabled if you disabled the train ramp, causing a crash if the zipline was enabled but not the train ramp. Found by staviq
Version: 0.5.3 Date: 9/7/2020 Bugfixes: - Semi-fix preventing players without an associated character from getting on a zipline. This should prevent crashes on a zipline when the character disapears but doesn't cover cases where the controlled character changes or disapears. Found by MPeti1 - Fixed that wire connections to things other than power poles (like switches) would crash. Found by MPeti1 - Made it so that ramps auto-heal to 99999999999 instead of whatever value it was last hit for in hopes that it prevents some weird cases where the ramps are just vanishing or occasionally left with some damage. Found by Ki-Tan
Version: 0.5.2 Date: 9/6/2020 Changes: - Removed some debugging code when clicking on throwers Bugfixes: - Fixed that characters would jump out of a train upon landing due to the change I made so that the jumps would work in sandbox mode
Version: 0.5.1 Date: 9/5/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed code analyzing power poles without a copper cable connection. Found by HairyDave
Version: 0.5.0 Date: 9/5/2020 Additions: - Electric Zipline Trolley. Use your existing power grid as a highway! See player settings to adjust zipline camera motion. - Experimental overflow minimization code. Can be enable in Map Settings. Helps particularly with transport belts, a 3x3 "catching grid" should stop most overflow. - Settings to enable/disable different parts of the mod. Modules include: modded inserter throwers, train ramps, train bounce pads, advanced bounce pads (primer&signal), and zipline. Vanilla throwers, player launchers, hatches, and regular/directed bounce pads are always enabled. Recommended by Zuzak. Bugfixes: - Fixed a crash when using a Train Ramp in sandbox mode. The environment was probably too toxic in there. Found by notnotmelon. - Fixed a crazy situation where if two trains were trying to land close to each other and one didn't have a destination and thus stopped immediately to 0 speed while another train or wagon with a netagive speed (backwards) tried to attach to it and make the stationary train move with negative speed, the game would crash because I didn't take a 0 speed train into account. Report and initial investigation by mvolfik and ProkopRandacek on github. - Made the stand in cars that guided the trains jump invincible so it couldn't be destroyed premptively.
Version: 0.4.8 Date: 8/28/2020 Additions: - Added an alternate mode for the Train Ramp that does not do the schedule skipping after a jump. Swap between the modes by hovering a ramp and pressing Interact. Requested by many people. Bugfixes: - Fixed that flying trains would be affected by belts transport belts underneath.
Version: 0.4.7 Date: 8/23/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed (I think) a crash related to making thrower varient of an inserter without a minable.result
Version: 0.4.6 Date: 8/22/2020 Additions: - Added equipment grids to be carried over after a jump if the train has it. Suggested by MPeti1 Changes: - Adjusted the train jump animation so it looks less jank.
Version: 0.4.5 Date: 8/19/2020 Changes: - Made it so that trains won't speed up or slow down until either all carriages reconnect, or 4 seconds have passed since it landed. This makes train jumps about 69x more managable to use.
Version: 0.4.4 Date: 8/18/2020 Additions: - Clicking on any bounce pad toggles it's range indicator visibility in alt-view. - Primer Bounce Plate compatability with artillery shells. Changes: - Changed all bounce pad range indicators again to be the normal yellow/orange. - Bounce pad range indicator is now more transparent so hopefully it's not as distracting in alt-view while still being helpful. Bugfixes: - Fixed another train crash involving cliffs that I already implemented but it turns out there's another spot in the code I had to integrate the fix lmao - Fixed a crash that would happen if there isn't any room to drop an item on the ground after being thrown. It now searched infinitely for a free spot. Discovered by CaptainSlide. - Fixed Hatch integration with blueprints/copy/paste by adding that it's a player-creation to its flags.
Version: 0.4.3 Date: 8/16/2020 Changes: - Specified that trains must hit ramps exactly straight in the ramp description. Recommended by Sparen. - Specified thrower range can be adjusted using Interact in their descriptions. - Adjusted the bounce pad range image to line up better horizontally
Version: 0.4.2 Date: 8/15/2020 Additions: - Bounce Pads show their range in alt-mode instead of on hover Changes: - Added train ramp to the thumbnail - Flying trains now shift slightly to better align with train bounce pads. This helps all carriages in a train travel, fly, and bounce together. - Following trains better sync up with the lead train. Bugfixes: - Fixed handling of players jumping on Train bounce pads. - Fixed thrower bunrner inserters not self refueling when facing down or right - Fixed another crash when jumping trains land, explode, and damage surrounding entities which were somehow becoming invalid between being detected and being dealt damage - Fixed Spread Primer Bounce Pad integration with blueprints/copy/paste by adding placeable_by to its prototype - Added raise_built=true when recreating launched trains for better modded train compatability
Version: 0.4.1 Date: 8/8/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed game crash when flying trains were landing on cliffs and other things that didn't strictly have health
Version: 0.4.0 Date: 8/7/2020 Additions: - Train Ramps. You knew it had to be - Train Bouce Pad and Train Directed Bounce Pads. Tests to create train bounce routes has proven to be very expensive - Shadows for all the Bounce Pads Bugfixes: - Fixed ordering of final-fixes code so that projectiles for generated thrower are actually created
Version: 0.3.7 Date: 7/18/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed scaling for the particle of thrown items so that icons of different sizes graphically should all show in game at roughly the same size - Remved the need for the placeholder image for items with layered icons
Version: 0.3.6 Date: 7/17/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed compatability with the new capsule action code in Factorio 0.18.36 - Fixed primer bounce pad compatability with moded land mines - Fixed migration from saves that never had the hard coded thrower varients probably
Version: 0.3.5 Date: 7/4/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed compatability issues with other mods that added capsules with non-conventional functions. Namely, Tapeline and Vehicle Wagon 2 were tested. Reported by saaadel
Version: 0.3.4 Date: 7/4/2020 Bugfixes: - Removed stray character I must have fat-fingered accidentaly causing a crash
Version: 0.3.3 Date: 7/4/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed handling of burner inserters with the anti-long-boi-arm-stretch code that would sometimes cause a crash on the current 0.18 versions for some reason - Workaround fix for the "no power" icon to appear on throwers not connected to electricity.
Version: 0.3.2 Date: 7/3/2020 Changes: - Adjusted bounce effects to appear on top of the bounce pads, in the "higher-object-above" render_layer to be exact.
Version: 0.3.1 Date: 7/1/2020 Additions: - New research that allows configuring the range of throwers to be between 1-15. Hover and press Interact to adjust range.
Version: 0.3.0 Date: 6/29/2020 Additions: - Directed Bounce Pads. I feel like these really round out the functionality. - Hatches. Finally compatability for other things with inventories. - Basic tech tree
Version: 0.2.6 Date: 6/12/2020 Bugfixes: - Some compatability issues with the ADAPTIVE thrower generation (icon vs icons, actual vs function, etc) Additions: - Bounce and Priming sound effects
Version: 0.2.5 Date: 6/12/2020 Bugfixes: - Script detection of bots and etc. that broke when changing over to procedurally generated throwers - Compatability with Rusty Locale
Version: 0.2.4 Date: 6/12/2020 Removed: - Version 0.2.3 because I just felt like it whatcha gonna do - Hard coded throwers (NOOBS) Additions: - Procedurally generated throwers for all inserters including ones added by mods. (EPICO) They are unlocked by default for now, research to come. - Split Primer Bounce Pad into Precise and Spread varients. Swap by pressing "Interact" - Primed land mines. Good with a spread mode Bounce Pad Changes: - Launch key (default F) renamed to Interact so you can use the same key to swap modes - Thrower Inserter slightly slower - Throwers only run when at full power to avoid the wacky arm stretching issue when they run at low power. - Damage taken from landing on something now scales with the size of the thing you landed on.
Version: 0.2.2 Date: 5/26/2020 Changes: - Some file name case correction that I'm not sure was even needed but hey it's worth a shot.
Version: 0.2.1 Date: 5/26/2020 Additions: - Primer Bounce Pad. Unlocked with Military 2 - Signal Bounce Pad. Unlocked with Circuit Network
Version: 0.2.0 Date: 5/17/2020 Additions: - Added thrower varients of all the different inserter types. They are unlocked with their respective normal version's research. - Added range indicators to the Bounce Pads Changes: - Changed the Player Launcher so that you don't have to hover it with the mouse in order to use it. Now you just have to stand on it and press the launch key. Bugfixes: - Changed how bounces are calculated so that blueprint ghosts are not longer destroyed when things land on them.
Version: 0.1.6 Date: 5/9/2020 Bugfixes: - Improved compatability with other mods that happen to use my same naming convention where a projectile/target based on an item was called the projectile/targets name plus -projectile/-target. Now my projectiles/targets have the suffix -projectile/targetFromRenaiTransportation respectively. Issue pointed out by Drury who noted my mod was incompatible with Krastorio 2.
Version: 0.1.5 Date: 5/7/2020 Bugfixes: - Made the same fix in 0.1.4 but applied it to on_configuration_changed too on the off chance that people had the mod installed and kept 0.1.3 while it was still bugged and updated to 0.1.4
Version: 0.1.4 Date: 5/7/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed that the Player Launcher wouldn't work on existing saves because the AllPlayers table wouldn't be set up in those cases. Now fills the table with all players in the save during initialization. Problem source identified by fgcapo.
Version: 0.1.3 Date: 5/4/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed script_raised_built listener problem where I copied the code from the on_built_entity listener not realizing the related entity is reffered to as just .entity instead of .created_entity. Problem identified by darkfrei. - Preemptive bug fix adding on_entity_cloned listener for built thrower inserters. Recommended by AshenSwift.
Version: 0.1.2 Date: 5/3/2020 Bugfixes: - Fixed that Thrower Inserters wouldn't work when built by bots by adding on_robot_built_entity and script_raised_built events to listen for. Problem identified by therax.
Version: 0.1.1 Date: 4/26/2020 Changes: - Made the Bounce Pad smaller so you can walk between them when they're next to each other. Additions: - The change log lmao. Bugfixes: - Fixed that you could get stuck on a cliff if you launched into it, because apparently it's immune to .die() Now you land at the closest free spot.
Version: 0.1.0 Date: 4/25/2020 Se~no: - Demo sonnan ja dame - Mou sonnan ja hora - Kokoro wa shinka suru yo - Motto motto - *clap*
