Hi Joe7575!

I've created another pull request on Github. I put short description in commit message, this small change affects how Fermenter picks up plant leaves for processing. Instead of trying to get 2 at once (which apparently is done from the same stack only), it takes them one by one. 'for' loop for 2 items may seem excessive, but IMHO is more flexible. I've tested it, seems to work as expected.

Cheers!
Micu

Coming soon:

Machines break and need to be repaired!

Image

Machines will break after a while and need a repair kit to work normally again.
This should help to keep the industrial plants smaller, the player more busy and the hole game more sophisticated.

In addition a Forceload Block will be added, which will allow to separate industrial areas from cities/living areas.

TechPack v2 is ready for testing

+ image


The main new features are:
  • Almost all machines break after a certain amount of time (switch into the state 'defect') and have to be repaired (configurable).
  • A Repair Kit is available to repair defect machines.
  • A Forceload block (16x16x16) is added which keeps the corresponding area loaded and the machines operational as far as the player is logged in (number is configurable).
  • The Quarry now uses LVM techniques to go down up to 100 meter
  • Ladders, stairways, and bridges added (tubelib_stairway) for the machines
  • many improvements

Give it a try, your feedback is highly appreciated!

Thank you joe7575, that's a really good job!
Nobody likes when stuff gets broken ;-) but this is an opportunity to put even more computers (like SaferLua controllers) to use. Personally I run even simplest machines with these to get notified when job is done or something is wrong. Now just to enable defect monitoring and produce a pile of repair kits :-)

Cheers!

TechPack includes forceloading blocks.

The Forceload Block keeps the corresponding area loaded and the machines operational as far as the player is logged in. If the player leaves the game, all areas will be unloaded.

The maximum number of Forceload Blocks per player is configurable (default 12).

The loaded area per block is a cube with 16 m side length (according to a Minetest block). Punching the block makes the area visible and punching again invisible.

Controller Terminals

Image

These Terminals are used to send command strings to the SaferLua Controller. In turn, the Controller can send text strings to the terminal. The Terminals have a help system for internal commands:

  • clear = clear the screen
  • help = output this message
  • pub = switch terminal to public use (everybody can enter commands)
  • priv = switch terminal to private use (only the owner can enter commands)
  • send <num> on/off = send on/off event to e. g. lamps (for testing purposes)
  • msg <num> <text> = send a text message to another Controller (for testing purposes)

Thanks Joe7575! This is a really cool device and a necessary tool for all command-line geeks!
I've noticed a nice terminal feature: although it sends commands to designated Lua Controller, it accepts text messages from many such computers making it an excellent status console.
