[Suggestion] Led displays

  • it would be nice to have led displays to show things
    like outside a reactor you could have "core 1 in action" lighting up when it is in action

  • Most people see Redstone related stuff as logicBinary signals mostly aka 0 and 1, on and off, and similars.


    Trying to call it a "Crude Form of Power" its a huge understatment.


    Anyway, i would say for Redpower to make the "Display" and IndustrialCraft to create or add a method for redpower to read each state of the nuclear reactor.


    Edit: Binary was the word lul.

  • not everyone has redpower installed.

    BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • they should install it ^^

    Especially Etho should install it. Oh moment, then we are fucked.

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.

    GregTech 6, the Main Thread, Bug Reports go here too.
    I'm also on #gt-dev on irc.esper.net, if you don't want to make a Forum account just to contact me.
    (I'm there almost every day, when I'm at my own computer. Yes you can drop bugs and suggestions there too)

  • by Crude i mean that I see it more as a base element


    if more complex objects are to be made it seems to be rather larger in size, in comparison to electricity
    i know that the fundamental ideas of both are the same
    additionally i consider redstone to be much more static in the outcome, i know that in theory you could make an fully funktional "micro" processor, and it would be awesome, but something like that would hardly be small

  • In that case he would deserve raGan's "Golden Derp". 8o

    i originally made an user with another email, then i forgot the login to here and my email password
    so i created a new one with 5 instead of s
    one of my computers apparently remembers the user and i didn't notice until now

    Putting aside everything about the account and getting back to the above, I think you may be unaware of the difference we are making.


    Redstone == Red dust that is in vanilla minecraft, and the circuitry created with it.
    Redpower == A mod written by Eloraam (www.eloraam.com) which at its most basic adds

    • Single-tile logic gates (which significantly decreases the size and bugginess of circuits). For example, in vanilla you can make a 5-clock that takes up a significant amount of real estate; or you can craft a timer that will take up 1 block.
    • Redstone-ish circuitry that can be placed on walls (No more stair-stepping required).
    • Colored insulation and bundling that both reduces lag (insulated cable doesn't 'charge' the block it is on) and reduces complexity (insulated cable that is different colors doesn't interact)

    If I am correct that you were unaware of this mod, I would encourage you to check it out. I've just scratched the surface (both in my own use and in this description).
