Units inheriting/taking factory control groups

Is there a way to turn this off?

I do not think there is.

There is a keybind to select factories in your control groups but ya units replace them with normal keybind

The embodiment of depression...

A few months later - there is a way to turn this off. It will be part of the next game patch.

For those interested, we've been introducing all the base game files. One of such files is this one:

And in particular, this function:

Which I think is only used to add units to the selection group of a factory, as it is not referenced anywhere in Lua and it is called directly by the engine when a factory (that is in a selection group) starts to build a unit 🙂 .

edit: iconically, the function is at line number 42.

As it turns out, you can already select the factories of a selection group:

  • (1) CTRL + number to create selection group (of factories)
  • (2) number to select produced units
  • (3) CTRL + SHIFT + number to select producing units (factories)

For (2) and (3), if you press the number twice then you go to the selected group in question with your camera. This is fully functional in the base game, with no UI mods enabled. As @Meltdown mentions:
