Hi all. First, I want to thanks the creator of this mod and all his contributors, because this mod is just amazing. As a developper, I was impressed by your work, OpenComputers is very realistic, it's a real computer simulation. I love when you doing some IOs and you can hear the disk noise, tons of little features like this <3 I'm planning for learning scala, I think I will read your code soon to study minecraft modding ;-) Anyway, this is not the goal of this thread. It would be nice to add more micro-controllers features like lcd screens, buzzers, RF emitters/receivers Micro-Components This features introduce a new concept : The micro-components. There are designed to be used with micro-controllers. The difference with normal components is the size, it's not a block, but more like a keyboard. In fact, keyboards can be considered like a micro-component and be compatible with micro-controllers. LCD screens A lcd 32*32 (or smaller) screen ? - This LCD screen would be used by micro-controllers, very useful to debug them. - The LCD screen would be flat, like keyboards. - [T1]: Black and white screen - [T2]: Can configure background and foreground colors using dyes (in a crafting table) - [T3]: Can use all colors Buzzers It's just the normal buzzer you can found in a computer case, but in an external component. - The buzzer would be used by micro-controllers. (e.g.: debug, alerts, alarms) - The buzzer would be flat too RF emitters / RF receivers Used for communication between micro-controllers - Short range - Based on frequences - Flat with an antenna ;-) Micro-components are flat Like I said, all micro-components are rendered flat like OpenComputers keyboard, It's the way to differentiate normal components from micro components. Combining 2 micro-controllers will result to have something comparable to a slab (in term of size), you cannot combine more than 2 micro-components in the same block.
