TinyStart

by Yehn

A minimalist starter kit with a tier 0 power armor, a mini low-output reactor, and the accoutrements you need for robot construction. As simple as 'Install and Play', but includes optional loadout customization for those looking to tailor their experience - such as using solar power instead.

I was actually thinking about making this kind of mod so good job! My idea was to include in starter pack the lowest tech possible to have construction robots - modular armor, 2 roboports, 20 construction bots and 4 personal solar cells. This would provide ability to build blueprints from the beginning and would push player to upgrade power supply and robots. Do you think you could make this kind of variation in this mod or do it in separate one?

There's a couple variations like this mod around; it sounds like you might be interested in Peppe's version here:
https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Peppe/PeppeBotStart

If Peppe's doesn't work out for you I could probably add a config option to start with a solar powered armor.

Hey!

So I have some really good news. This request got me thinking, and I decided to add a system of loadout customization. You can see it here:

And a really neat thing is, if you join a server running TinyStart it will remember your preferences.

But! In order to accommodate some changes I made... I need to wait for a mod interface the Factorio devs are adding in the next version. With any luck that'll be very soon and I'll have the next version ready to upload.

In the meantime, happy building

This update removed my armor entirely. I got this when I loaded into my game - https://i.imgur.com/POVBym7.png

I assume it's tied to the new functionality for upgrading armor that you also implemented?

Oh, sorry about that. It's not because of the upgrade thing, but because I renamed the base armor. I'll add migration code.

In the meantime... if you disable TinyStart, save your game, and then re-enable TinyStart, you should get your armor back.

Hi,

I just added migration support. If you load your save file from before that image you posted, it should properly convert your armor over.

But if you've already progressed, the disable -> save -> enable -> load technique mentioned earlier should also work.

Thanks for letting me know about the issue.
