Click the video link above to see me controlling a Real-Life Room's light using ingame mesecons.
I know there are some of you who also know how to make this kind of cool stuff, and some amongst you that just want to build great things ingame.
So get your AVRs, PICs, Raspberry Pis, Arduinos or Parallel ports and make some mesecons <-> Real life interface, or just be creative in another category.
This time, there are 3 categories:
1. Real Life
Make something that connects to the real life in some way. A connection can be a physical device like an LED, a motor, your computer, your room light, but it can also be a website, a server, whatever!
I hope there will be any entries in this section at all as not many people both like mesecons and real electronics (I guess?).
Tip: Use my Lua Curl branch to communicate with devices over the network.
Use the os.execute command to communicate with other devices.
You need to write your own code here, but it does not have to be portable in any way. You should just proof that your idea works using pictures and preferably also send in your source code and a video.
You can use anything included in mesecons or digilines.
2. Use anything
This is a creative challenge. Build something awesome! In this category you're allowed to use whatever you want, any item from digilines and mesecons of course.
You can even code your own things as long as they're not specific things for your use case.
All 3 categories will have a seperate winner. If I can't make up something better this time, the prizes will be emails @mesecons.net and subdomains.mesecons.net again...3. Restricted Items
Also a creative challenge, but you are only allowed to use parts from the mesecons mod, but not the luacontroller and the microcontroller.
Your creatings will be rated in the following criteria:
- Work invested
Creations will be published on mesecons.net server.Rules
Ends: 27th April 2013
Who can take part?
Single players, teams or whole server teams.
Post your submission in this forum thread, for categories 2+3 you must provide a screenshot and the map.
Good luck! Have fun!
