Alien Biomes

A collection of additional biomes: Snow, Volcanic, Crater, various colors of Dirt, Sand and Grass. Includes new tree and decorative variants. There are planet controls in the mod options. V3 is a complete rebuild, starting a new map is advised, but there is a terrain regeneration option that will preserve parts of your base. HR Terrain Textures are in a separate mod.

g Mod fails to load after update

(updated 3 years ago)

I updated the mod just now and it stopped working. It is present in the mods folder, but it does not load, and I see no error message.

factorio-current.log has this message in it after downloading the mod:

  29.585 Error CachedChangelog.cpp:54: Failed to parse changelog for mod Alien Biomes: invalid changelog file, error on line 1, line does not start with exactly '    - ' or exactly '      '..

It also has this line that appears during startup:

0.339 Error ModManager.cpp:793: Mod package read error. Opening zip C:/Users/Dirk/AppData/Roaming/Factorio/mods/ failed: Bad zip file

Despite this, I can open the zip file in 7zip and read everything just fine.

Edit: testing the zip file using 7zip reveals a data error at graphics/terrain/sr/mineral-aubergine-sand-2.png.

The direct download link seems to work correctly.

I'm uploading a new version now.
