SetPowerRegion Command
« on: May 12, 2017, 08:58:50 AM »
Arguments: SetPowerRegion [x,y,z] [x,y,z] [on|off]

SetPowerRegion sets the power state of all the blocks in a region. This would useful if you want to make lights turn on or off in your house using a script block, because then you wouldn't have to do SetPower a bunch of times which could take forever.
I'm excited for Total Miner to be released on PC.

I believe this has been suggested before. I think the consensus was that the power was too buggy for this to work properly. And I am not sure that power has been touched since slightly after 2.0.

Another potential problem is the fact that this would power everything in the region. And quite a few things accept power, So this would not be ideal if you don't plan it out extremely carefully.


On a side note, If you want to power a bunch of things at once, Use Wi-Fi transmitters and receivers.

Funny enough, (once when I either suggested, or agreed with this suggestion) it was because I wanted to power a bunch of transmitters.
