Would be interesting to see. Make it remote control through like a screen you have to make. And have it be 1 block high.

I have been watching on the bukkit forum about the Computercraft port. They have a port for 1.21, but they are just waiting for permission from dan200 to release it.
I love these textures, thanks so much for putting the work into them. Once my server is up and running I will try and promote Sphax's textures and this addon.
They were working, my guess is the site hosting the images dropped them.
I currently use this in my power plant with 20 water mills. It works like a champ. The only thing I had a problem with was I tried to have buckets come out of the filter and then drop down one block into the water mills. After moving evertything around to have the pipes all on one level it worked great. No real wory about looks as it's like the redheaded stepchild of my powerplant. Just slap it and close the door.
You could make it an automated drag. Make two sets of cart rails on both sides of the field and use special carts that connect to each other on both sides, tilling the field as it goes?
Someone has already made a network communication program. I believe it is a parallel communications connection to two computers. I would imagine it wouldnt be too awfuly hard. Here is the minecraft forum thread where its located: Forum thread. I would imagine if you start one computer though and have it wait for an incoming signal then have it react.
Heres one of mine for my unfinished factory.Code
print("Welcome to the factory") sleep(1) print("Please make your selection") sleep(1) print("****************************") print("* 1.Cobble stone generator *") print("* 2. Flax farm *") print("* 3. Ice generator *") print("****************************") input = read() if input == "1" then print("Cobble generator on/off?") input = read() if input == "on" then redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "16", true) sleep(1) print("Cobble generator running") elseif input == "off" then redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "16", false) sleep(1) print("Cobble generator shut down") end elseif input == "2" then print("Please wait while the farm cycles") sleep(2) redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "32768", true) sleep(2) redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "32768", false) print("String and seeds on the way") print("Check chest to your right") sleep(2) print("Replanting new flax, please wait") sleep(2) redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "2048", true) sleep(2) redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "2048", false) print("Flax replanted") elseif input == "3" then print("Ice generator on/off?") input = read() if input == "on" then redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "1024", true) print("Pumps running") elseif input == "off" then redstone.setBundledOutput("bottom", "1024", false) print("Pumps shut down") end end
Mine is messy as well, but eh, order out of chaos. I also plan on using it for my forestry section. This code will HAVE to be cleaned up once it's done. I think I am going to make this the base program eventually and make it call other programs depending on which section of the factory I want to work with.
Edit: Program is very unfinished as well.
Be sure to get the v 1.11 of computercraft to fix the bundled cable connectivity issue.
Here's a tip, if you want to use bundled cables its easy. Use this command with the list of color numbers (listed below).
redstone.setBundledOutput("back", "1", true)
I used 1 as an example. It would turn on something connected to a white cable. Here is the list of colors.
light blue: 8
Thank's! I have basicly been screwing with others programs and I have almost explaned to myself how they work, what function they use and at least I find that very usefull! I have now created a control room. I do still have buttons and light indicators. But I find that more easy, if something goes wrong, I need to act fast, and typing on a computer is to slow at the moment...
Anyway, I have used a computer to controll client's power flow and to open service doors and stuff like that!
If I turn on the computer I will get a message:
"Client's switch network and service door opener loading!"
Type dis-con to change a clien'ts power supply, or type Doors to open or close a door.
dis-con is not working yet but I can open my service door!Den I do like this
Type "Doors" then push enter
I get a list of which doors I can use.
I type "Service-Door" and push enter
Then I choose betwin close or open
then it repeat the whole prossess!
Are these multiple programs? Or did you build this all into one? I would be interested to see your script if you care to share it.
My last world had all three. I prefer windmills over watermills. Yes you still have to build wayyyyy up in the air to get the best output for windmills, but I really don't mind.
I have started using it with my powerplant. It works like a champ. I believe you have four output sides with it (Not sure of the top or face has a redstone output. But so far I love it. And if you know at least a little BASIC, then lua is a snap to use. Anything you want to do with redpower, this mod gives you a central command point for it, rather than a wall full of switches.
Already talked about it in Daniel's thread, but computercraft would be epic with your power plant. Run everything from one console and tada!
Ive added that mod, and I just added ligistick pipes (BC addon) You know of a good guide for begginers? I have only created BASIC scripts with batch files...
Well, I don't know too much about LUA. There are a bunch of files HERE to give you an idea on how it works. Which is what ive been doing. There are enormous capabilities with this.. I even saw one program that created a network between other computers using lua.
I know RP2 is looking into adding a computer block into her mod, using assembly. But in the meantime if you know, or want to learn LUA give this a shot. It IS compatible with RP2!! COMPUTERCRAFT
It would be a great addition to any powerplant IMHO.
I love progression pics. Keep updating!
Reactor ---> 3 Way Detector ---> Storage ---> Machines
At any given time I will have only a couple machines running or my entire processing factory. You could also wire something like that to initiate another array of generators with an MFSU as a choke point you have cut off with redstone. Once you hit the next level of output, it activates another redstone output and reverses the signal at the MFSU, turning on more generators.
Think of it as a hands free mode. You can use an eu meter just same same to see if theres power at all going through the lines, but I thought thats what the detector cable was for.
