aint that much of a pain when you learned some basic coding ya can easly make the quary part moving part go smooth + ya can easly build in fail saves for example my quary has the urge to forget to place a pipe at the start with 1 command thats fixed
+ it really fix timing issues example when quary is mining the construction wont move forward because
the program for mining is going first then the progam for pulling quary back up then the program starts to make the solar panels followed by the kk command to place pannels and then the construction can move. Just try to do that with redstone logic you probable would need a big part of ya machine for it if its even possible
btw machine has grown so big that moving it causes a serious lagg spike some secs right now ( really makes me worry i expect flames to emit from my harddisk any moment on the otherhand i can barbeque then)
wondered if the lagg spike can become so big that minecraft is forced to quit ?
if so is the machine then still good for the contest (ofc it will still be able to do its job but my pc wont be able to run it construction( final part(s) would be on the main machine they will be tested on working and moveable forwards and any other test you want it to past )
