Future Script and Circuitry Subtopic
« on: February 07, 2014, 09:04:44 PM »
My idea is to have a subtopic labeled "Scripts and Circuitry" under the Total Miner discussions.

This would benefit forum surfers who are interested in the following:

- pinned posts about the basic set-up of circuitry
- pinned posts about setting up a script and how to write them

Most Importantly - questions asking for advice on how to set up the script or circuitry involving a specific scenario.
For example, members could post a topic like "Im trying to implement a challenge puzzle using mob spawners and switches. Mobs spawn at ___, player walks towards ___ and must activate switch X. [insert other complex details regarding how the challenge works]. Can anyone help me on how the script commands should be written and when they should be executed on the script block? Where power should be set up, and frequencies? Where mobs should spawn to give fairest challenge?"


This would alleviate clutter in the "Questions & Answers" thread by allocating all of the script and power discussions into one subtopic. This would also allow Total Miner players who are knowledgable in uses of scripts/circuitry to post their advice and help others in one specific place.
The subtopic wouldn't have to be implemented right away, could be held off until the v2.0 update comes out.
You make me smile!

Good idea. If powered circuit and script stuff becomes as popular as I think it will be I'll add it after the updates out

As long as its voiced over by Morgan freeman. I always love it in movies when I'm lost and he comes in and explains everything to the audience.


seriously though this sound like a good idea.

I Agree, im planning on making a bunch of weird things with them and even doing a few videos on them, there going to be difficult for alot of the kids to understand stand so be a good place to learn from people who do.
