I am glad that there is a site that gives tutorials on how to build various things. One day, there might be mesecon machines that are truly fun to play with (like games and such.)

You know what, you just gave me the idea of making Death-Swap in minetest. :D

Very nice work. i haven't been on the scene for awhile, but i am an advanced redstone user. ive made clock's and microcontroller with redstone, etc etc. some of this stuff look like Elorams (probably spelt that wrong) mod Redpower with the 1/8 slab repeater type logic gates all in one. seeing this diffidently make me curious as to whats possible. ^_^

I would like to write about my aperture map because it is depending mesecons VERY MUCH. Here linked:http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=5917

That would be excellent. If you need any help or information then let me know.

Did you try to make utility machines with Technic frames? I just made a quarry (that is lagging the server a lot...) I could make a schematic, if you want.

Can anyone give me the luacontroller code to output a mesecon signal from ports A and B, switching on/off about 2 times per second? So a 1/2 a second clock

Code: Select all
interrupt(0.5, "test")
if event.iid == "test" then
  port.a, port.b = not port.a, not port.b
end

Hi
I am trying to get the double piston to work as per the lab page but with only two outputs. I got it working with two switches and no controller but can't replicate the sequence of switching with LUA. Please can someone help me fix it?

Switch sequence (without controller) was as follows:
extend pistons = SW1 on, SW2 on
retract pistons = SW 2 off, then SW1 off then SW 2 on, then SW2 off

the LUA I have now is as follows (port.c is control):
Code: Select all
if event.iid == "pull1" then
  port.a = false
  interrupt(0.2, "push2")
elseif event.iid == "push2" then
  port.b = true
  interrupt(0.2, "pull2")
elseif event.iid == "pull2" then
  port.b = false
else
if pin.c then --extend
    port.a = true
    port.b = true
  else --retract
    port.b = false
    interrupt(0.2, "pull1")
  end
end


The extend part of the sequence works but retract keeps repeating the "push2" and "pull2" indefinately

Since I don't know where else to look, can someone please tell me how to make doors open with mesecon? I tried the redstone way but it didnt work.

Hi benrob0329,

I don't really have the time to update this much any more, but I'd be happy to accept submissions! Simply post it in this thread or email me with the details, and I'll add it to the site.

Would this be worth putting up on the website?

It's a password protected door, and the door part could be used with or without a Luacontroller.

That's a nice project! If you send me the write-up, I'll add it as a new post.

Is this Project dead?
If not, I would love to see more tutorials to try to build things. :)
(I am still learning on how to use mesecons at all oO)

I was trying to build the Tic Tac Toe Machine from here:
http://uberi.mesecons.net/projects/TicTacToe/index.html
However it does not work.

I had to change the code for the push button Lua Controllers:
Below is the code for the lower row Lua Controller.

The lines we are concerned with is the "if" and "elseif" lines.
You will need to change the code in all 3 controllers

Old Code:
Code: Select all
if event.type == "on" then
  if event.pin == "A" then             <--- Change this line to    if pin.a then
    digiline_send("press", "12")
  elseif event.pin == "B" then      <--- Change this line to    if pin.b then
    digiline_send("press", "11")
  elseif event.pin == "D" then      <--- Change this line to    if pin.d then
    digiline_send("press", "13")
  end/join #a
end


New Code should look like this
Code: Select all
 if pin.a then
    digiline_send("press", "12")
  elseif pin.b then
    digiline_send("press", "11")
  elseif pin.d then
    digiline_send("press", "13")
 end
end


Also if you are using the WorldEdit file (TicTacToe.we) you will need to change the lua controller code for the lights indicating who's turn it is.
Old Code:
Code: Select all
port.b = not pin.d


New Code:
Code: Select all
if pin.d then
port.b = false
elseif not pin.d then
port.b = true
end


I needed to separate the lights from the push button switches and also from each other.

Here Is my build:

I hope this helps anyone wanting to use the wonderful game of Tic Tac Toe
I tested it with version 4.16 and it works.

Code: Select all
local row = 3
if "on" == event.type then
  if event.pin.name == "B" then
    digiline_send("key", 1 .. row)
  elseif event.pin.name == "A" then
    digiline_send("key", 2 .. row)
  elseif event.pin.name == "D" then
    digiline_send("key", 3 .. row)
  end
end

I haven't used technic & pipeworks yet, but 'utility machines' with mesecons would be nice.
I mean, clocks, processors, doors etc. are cool, but not really useful.

Maybe I missed something, but how is it possible to do useful work with mesecons,
like harvesting&planting, and producing&moving stuff ?
Eg. getting materials in and out of a furnace, or sorting stuff into chests ?

The digital clock does exactly what you'd expect it to - it tells the time.

This one also covers the creation of a very compact 7 segment display plus a built-in driver for the digits 0-9.



It doesn't work by me. I get a "msg" error by all the lua controllers

Now it does work a bit and i'm trying to make a analog clock
