Foreman

Foreman is a mod for manipulating blueprints in game. At the moment you can mirror blueprints and replace one entity with another one (for example replace all yellow belts with red belts in a blueprint)

Foreman 2.0.1 and Factorio 0.15:

This is probably one of the last updates where Foreman will be able to import blueprintstrings. Use the new vanilla blueprint Library (press B by default) to store your blueprints and create strings. You can no longer export blueprints, only import them from the old BlueprintString/Foreman format. The new vanilla format will not be supported. Depending on how the modding API for the library turns out i might keep up the ability to store blueprints in Foreman.

Foreman will (given time) turn into a blueprint manipulation tool.

Main GUI

Features

###Top buttons:

  • Import blueprint/books from text
  • Fix positions in blueprints
  • Load multiple blueprints/books (L button)

###Toolbar:

  • Mirror blueprint / active blueprint in book on the cursor (mirroring along the other axis: mirror and rotate by 180°)
    Works with [Side Inserters](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/GotLag/Side Inserters), Bob's Adjustable Inserters, Trainstops from SmartTrains
  • Replace entities in the blueprint with another one: Click the empty buttons with an item on the cursor. Click "Ok" with a blueprint/book to replace.

###Per blueprint/book buttons

  • Delete stored blueprints (clicking with a blueprint on the cursor will overwrite instead of deleting)
  • Load blueprint to toolbar or to cursor (if clicked with a blueprint)
  • Imports/Exports Blueprint Strings (Thanks Dave!)

###Hotkeys

  • Toggle the gui: Ctrl + T
  • Mirror blueprint: Alt + R

###Console commands:

  • Show the main button: /c remote.call("foreman", "show")
  • Hide the main button: /c remote.call("foreman", "hide")
