i no starting water

6 months ago

hello
could you add option for no starting water ? currently there is no way of doing that (at least cant find it) nor there is mod but since there are a lot mods that add options to get water in diffrent way (including Angel/bob ofc) it would be cool to start like this

Tbh I'm not sure how to do that even. I think that this starting water might be pregenerated by game.

there is old mod - https://mods.factorio.com/mod/ctg ( for 1.1 you just need change ver info) which disable starting water generation completly but you still always start near water which would be ok alone but it always eats at last half of your starting ores ... and we want start from real begining with no tech so half ores at start is huge problem (also we setup RSO to spawn ores really far away to each other for train play)

That mod removes water completely because it has it's own water generation. I'd rather not go as far as this.
And modifying vanilla map gen to only remove starting water might be tricky. Those new formulas for generation are complex and not sure if they can be edited.

tnx you took look at this :)

When you use that old mod updated to current version it deletes ores generated by RSO?

i dont think it deletes ores by design, it just add a lot water around your starting area (for preset we use which is half continents but probably for others too) and since ores cant spawn in water you start with less ores

RSO tries to move ores away from water when generating them. So it should still try to fit all of them. Unless that mod deletes them after they were spawned. You can try to add that mod as optional dependency in RSO and check if it changes something.

The 'No Lakes' mod is working for me with this mod.

it worked when that mod is as optional dependency in RSO, it sometimes spawn some ores really far away from spawn (when there is no place without water i guess) but all ores are present so tnx again :)

EDIT: sometimes it still doesnt work at all tho but i think its still better now ...

It might have no space for starting ores - there is a limit on distance for starting ore spawn so if there is to much water it's allowed to fail.

ok so pretty sure now water from this ctg mod deletes ores ... got island now in middle of nowhere (4 tiles only island) and its bobmonium island ... pretty sure RSO wouldnt try to spawn ore on 4 tile island or would it ?

This is an issue in ctg mod - it shows with rso in call stack because rso triggered chunk generation.
