Extended Descriptions adds extra information onto tooltips

  • All added information is faithful to vanilla font and color
  • Extended Descriptions does not overwrite any existing descriptions
  • Supports all mods

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

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


Resistances will be shown for military entities
This includes: cars, tanks, walls, gates, enemy structures, and turrets

First number is a flat decrease, and the second number is a percentage decrease
final damage = (original damage - first number) * (1 - second number)

Heat stats

Heat pipes will now show their max heat and their heat loss per tile
Reactors will also show their max heat

Tank volume

Pipes, boilers, pumps, ect. will all now show their tank size
Of course, tanks already show their size normally, so this feature is disabled by default unless they have a bizarre pressure

Radar stats

All radars will show their scanning speed, aswell as their ranges

Deadlock's Stacking Beltboxes integration

This mod works with DSB!
Any stackable items will display this information on their tooltip
