[Mesecons] Tic-Tac-Toe

by Temperest » Post

Cross-posted from my entry at the Mesecons Machine Competition!

Description:

A Tic-Tac-Toe machine! Two players play on one 9 button pad, and win conditions are automatically detected.

Mods:
  • Mesecons
Screenshots:

Timelapse:

If you want to watch me build the machine step-by-step, here's a video! Frames are spaced at 3 second intervals.

Info:

Log in as singleplayer. You'll be standing in front of the control panel. As the signs say, the left lone button resets everything, the center panel with 9 buttons is the entry pad, and the lights to the right flash the color of the winning player. Of course, the top screen shows the game progress. In the indicators, Green represents X, and Red represents O.

Make sure you wait a bit after pressing a button before pressing another one. Those buttons won't be rushed, and get cranky if you try to hurry them.

Here's a sample session:
  1. Press Reset to reset the game if it is not already reset.
  2. The green light on top of the entry pad is glowing. That means it's Green's (X) turn.
  3. The Green player presses the desired button.
  4. The green light turns off and the red light illuminates. That means it's Red's (O) turn.
  5. The Red player presses the desired button.
  6. The red light turns off and the green light illuminates.
  7. This cycle repeats until a player wins or the board is filled.
  8. If a player wins, the player's color will flash on the right indicator panel.
  9. For the convenience of other users, reset the machine so they don't have to.
Great for servers! Two players can play at once, but you can have multiple instances around to let more people enjoy it! I'm releasing this under the 3-clause BSD license, so you can do essentially anything you want with it, as long as you give credit where credit is due. A sign on the front is fine by me. If your server is prone to griefers, make sure you use some sort of block protection!

I designed this on the fly while I was building this, so it could probably be made a lot smaller. Anyways, the important thing is that It was finished in time for the Mesecons Machines competition.

The machine is pretty big, sometimes you have to stand in the right place for the chunks to remain loaded. The size means that you might have to increase your chunk loading distance.

Does the top left one work with the glass in place? If so, you may have removed something else by accident.

Sorry cornernote, you were right, the left side was missing a few wires that accidentally got removed in a WorldEdit accident. The download link has been changed to point to the new, fixed version.

What are the required mods?
If you have any pending matters with me, I encourage you to contact me via e-mail or PM. I still lurk from the shadows and very much care about the Minetest project. Sadly I have not been involved for the past years but I still look back fondly on the time I spent in your company.
If you are checking my profile, it's probably because of something.

It's "Drag" for the friends.

Just Mesecons, yes. I'll update the first post to reflect that.
