Extended Descriptions adds extra information onto tooltips

  • All added information is faithful to vanilla font and color

Since Extended descriptions modifies pretty much every item and building in the game, it will be blamed for most crashes. Disable the other mod first before reporting a bug here!

Machine sizes

All machines will have their dimensions added onto their tooltip
If the size is 1x1, it is not added to the tooltip

Inserter speeds

All inserters will display their speed in items/second
An approximation is used for belt to chest
In order to avoid visual clutter, this is only on the inserter entity, and not inserter items

Void recipes

If you can void an item or fluid then that information is added to the tooltip
It will also tell you where it is voided and how much item/second is destroyed

Productivity indicator

If a recipe is affected by productivity, then that is displayed on the tooltip
If another mod happens to add a productivity module that can be used on any recipe, then unfortunately every recipe will have this message

Module counts

All machines will display their module slot count

If a machine does not accept a type of module then you will be notified on the tooltip

Fluid fuel

All fluid fuels will have their fuel density and their pollution multiplier applied to their tooltip

Stack sizes

All items will display their stack sizes

Solar ratios

All solar panels and accumulators will show their ratios to all other solar buildings
If the perfect ratio is not reasonable, a decimal is used instead

Again, in order to avoid visual clutter, this is only on solar entities, and not items

I put the most interesting features here on the main page. The rest are on the FAQ page
