[API] Register poles and lamps (modpack) [streetlights]
Posted: Sun May 20, 2018 06:12
Register streetlight poles and lamps via an APIThe API provides two functions that allow registering conductive poles as well as lamps. The API registers them with all the necessary functionality for conducting the Mesecons signal. The two other mods in the modpack are examples on how to use the API.
Most basic setup: Mesecons signal into the receiver, from there into a pole, from the pole to the lamp.
For using the API all you need to do is depend on it and register anything you want. Or simply get the modpack as a whole since it contains two more mods that utilize the API to register a basic set of lamps and poles.
Left: All lamps are toggleable; Right: Some poles are disguised as other nodes
For connecting the Mesecons signal to the poles a receiver is used as shown in the first screenshot. To craft the receiver you just need some stone and other material.
Enough for seven lamps.
The receiver is provided by the API and does not need to be registered manually.
