Question about Computer craft turtles and scanners.

  • Hey everyone,
    So I am a huge fan of IC2 miners, the only problem is I would like to make a way (Turtle program) to map out ore density's to better place the miners.


    Before I dove into coding the full system I discovered that a turtle can use a scanner (It drains EU from the scanner) but I have no way of retrieving the value.
    The reason I am posting this here is cause I am thinking that the problem lies in the way values are reported when using the scanner.


    Has anyone ran into this problem/ resolved this problem?

  • This would be a perfect Suggestion for Misc Peripherals. We just need to know if RichardG is adding that. :D

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

    Is the answer to this question no?

    You posted this in Support. Don't you think he would read this Thread, and then complain about it being a Suggestion?


    Edit: Ninjaed!

  • Well its a support topic that evolved into a suggestion so i don't think he would complain.
