How to use the vanilla loaders without any Mods
 
 

Let’s get it done

Go to your Factorio directory and navigate to the prototypes folder:
 
 

Factorio\data\base\prototypes

 
You will need to edit up to 3 files:
 

  • item.lua
  • recipe.lua
  • technology.lua

You can open them with any editor.
 
 

item.lua

 
Use Ctrl + F to look for “loader”.
 
Delete the first loader entry, we don’t need two of them.

In the next step, remove the
 
 

flags = {"hidden"}

 
on all 3 loaders (loader, fast-loader and express-loader).

recipe.lua

 
Look for “loader” and remove
 
 

hidden = true

 
on all 3 loaders.

When you don’t want them to need any research or don’t want to start a new game, use
 
 

enabled = true

 
otherwise save and close recipe.lua and go on to the last part.
 
 

technology.lua

 
You can add the loaders to any technology you like. I will use logistics 1-3 to get them.
 
Looking for the “underground-belt” is the best way to find the logistics technology.
 
Add this between the entries for the underground-belt and the splitter:
 
 

 {
 type = "unlock-recipe",
 recipe = "loader"
 },

 
Use the same method to add the fast- and express-loaders.

Enjoy the loaders 🙂
