Mandatory properties

This prototype inherits all the properties from Prototype/Entity.


Type: AnimationVariations
Entity's graphics, using a graphic sheet, with variation and depletion. At least one stage must be defined.

When using Types/AnimationVariations#sheet, frame_count is the amount of frames per row in the spritesheet. variation_count is the amount of rows in the spritesheet. Each row in the spritesheet is one stage of the animation.


Type: table of uint32
Number of stages the animation has.

Optional properties


Type: bool
Default: false
If the ore is infinitely minable, or if it will eventually run out of resource.


Type: bool
Default: false
If the resource should be highlighted when holding a mining drill that can mine it (holding a pumpjack highlights crude-oil in the base game).


Type: bool
Default: true


Type: bool
Default: true
Whether the resource should have a grid pattern on the map instead of a solid map color.


Type: uint32
Default: 0
Must be not 0 when infinite = true.


Type: uint32
Default: 1
Must be not 0 when infinite = true.


Type: uint32
Default: 1
Every time an infinite-type resource "ticks" lower it's lowered by that amount. -- Rseding91


Type: uint32
Default: 3
When hovering over this resource in the map view: How far to search for other resource patches of this type to display as one (summing amount, white outline).


Type: string
Default: "basic-solid"
The category for the resource. Available categories in vanilla can be found here: Data.raw#resource-category


Type: Sound
Sound played when the player walks over this resource.


Type: AnimationVariations
An effect that can be overlayed above the normal ore graphics. Used in the base game to make uranium ore glow.


Type: float
Default: 0.0
How long it takes stages_effect to go from min_effect_alpha to max_effect_alpha.


Type: float
Default: 0.0
How much effect_animation_period can deviate from its original value. Used to make the stages effect alpha change look less uniform.


Type: float
Default: 1.0
How much the surface darkness should affect the alpha of stages_effect.


Type: float
Default: 0.0
Minimal alpha value of stages_effect.


Type: float
Default: 1.0
Maximal alpha value of stages_effect.


Type: double
Default: 0
Must be positive.


Type: double
Default: 0
Must be positive when tree_removal_probability is set.


Type: Color
Default: unset
Defaults to the resources map color if left unset and map color is set, otherwise defaults to white if left unset.
