Spidertron Leg Count

by jeff.s

Why should Spidertron have 8 legs? You can customize the number with this mod (affects ALL spidertrons). IMPORTANT: Due to a base game bug, Factorio will crash if you change this and then load a save that already has a spidertron on the ground. To work around it for now: Pick up your spidertron(s), save, change this value in mod settings and restart game, and put them back down.

Why should Spidertron have 8 legs? You can customize the number with this mod!

  • This mod adds a startup setting that changes the number of legs on the vanilla spidertron
  • Spidertrons with a lot of legs can sometimes have trouble walking or walk in a very silly manner

Known Bugs

IMPORTANT: Due to a base game bug, Factorio will crash if you change this and then
load a save that already has a spidertron deployed. For more information see
these two bugs (which should be fixed in the next release):

WORKAROUND:

  • Pick up all of the spidertrons
  • Save your game
  • Change the number of legs in mod settings (game will restart)
  • Put your spidertrons back on the ground

I know this is inconvenient. Sorry.

Limitations

  • This mod changes all Spidertrons. There isn't a way to customize how many legs each individual spidertron has.
  • This mod might or might not interact well with other Spidertron mods, depending on what they do.
