I have an area in the world where I have built example contraptions to show off some CraftBook features we have enabled. I have numbered each contraption with a sign near the front of each one.
What is an IC? An IC is an Integrated Circuit that contains logic on a sign.
This is your basic self-triggering Ranged Collector [MC1214]s with a radius of 10. The radius can go up to 25, but 10 is the default and recommended size.
This contraption will pick up items INSIDE it's range (marked by the glass sphere around it).
You can filter what items it picks up by spcifying a comma separated list of item id's on line 4 of the sign.
WARNING: Using too many of these in an area can cause lag. Ranged collectors scan their range every single tick (20 times a second). Please be mindful of others. If your area is causing lag, the admins will come in and make changes to it (including popping your CraftBook IC signs).
This is the same RangedCollector, but with an offset to move the pickup range. In this specific example I have moved is on the x:y:z coords as 5:10:5 (5 south, 10 up, 5 east)
The offset is specificed after the radius, on line 3, separating the radius and the offset with an equals sign (10.0=5:10:5)
The yellow wool represents moving the center of the radius by the specified offset.
This is your basic pipe. It is used to transport items similarly to hoppers, but with greater speeds, and much less lag. Pipes can move entire stacks of items at a time with each on/off pulse, where hoppers can only more 1 item at a time every 8 ticks.
Pipes are basically an input piston (sticky piston) to pull from a chest or barrel, a glass pipe to travel through, and an output piston (regular piston) to put into another chest/barrel.
The lever is to send the on/off pulse. Turn it on so the sticky piston has power and a stack of items gets pulled into the pipe. Turn it off again to pull another stack of items into the pipe.
This is the same pipe as #3, but automated using a comparator clock. When the input chest has contents the comparator clock will pulse, causing the pipe to suck up items from the chest until it is empty.
Here is a pipe system with some item filters on the output pistons (regular pistons). Line 3 of these [Pipe] signs specifies which items are allowed for this output. If an item comes through that is not allowed, it is continued on down the pipe.
This is an advanced sorter. It is another IC we allow [mc1229]. You can output a pipe directly into the sorter sign, and the sorter will compare the items to those that are inside the chest. If they match, they will be sorted to the right to be picked up into a new input pipe. If they do not match, they are sent to the left.
Example: Place a gold_ingot, a gold_block, and a gold_nugget into the sorting chest. Only diamonds going through the pipe will get sent left. a Gold block will get sent right. etc.
The same system as #6, except inverted. Matching items go to the left, everything else goes right.
This is a basic auto crafter IC [mc1219]. It works similarly to a sorter, the pipe must be piped directly into the sign. The dispenser must contain items placed in the order of some recipe. When recipe items are piped into the sign they will add to the stacks inside the dispenser until every item has at least 2, then the result will be crafted and spit out of the dispenser onto the ground.
This shows how to pick up auto crafted items into another pipe to be sent elsewhere.
This shows many ICs mixed together. Put items in the center chest, and all gold items get crafted into gold blocks and end up in the right chest. The left chest gets all non gold items. I use this exact system underneath my shop to help aid me in storing the gold I make from my shop. ^_^
This event has been cancelled due to lack of interest.
The next 3 build contests we had scheduled are also cancelled (halloween, thanksgiving, and christmas).
Seems this isn't a thing people like or want anymore.
Voting is over.
PvP is enabled.
Claims have a pvp flag.
Personal pvp toggle coming soon.
I've nerfed elytras quite a bit, but believe I have found a happy balance between server lag and your flying enjoyment.
Here are the current elytra changes:
- Elytras now take 2 damage per second when used
- Elytra damage now ignores the unbreaking enchantment
- Boosting your speed with a firework deals 10 damage to your elytra
- Boosting your speed with a trident with riptide enchantment deals 150 damage to your elytra
- Flying in excess of 5.0 speed (your velocity) multiplies your elytra damage per second by your speed
Why are these changes in place? Flying too quickly causes massive chunk load/saves on the server, which we all know is a shit show in 1.14.X as-is. The faster you fly, the laggier you make the server. We actually had 1 player bring the server down to 2 tps using an elytra a few days ago. Not good :S
Once the chunk load/save lag has been fixed we will look at removing some of these nerfs.
The riptide nerf will remain in place until Mojang fixes them (500 blocks per second flight is not okay to me).
Comment and questions can be posted to this thread and I'll be happy to discuss ^_^
Edit: Elytras are now disabled until Mojang fixes chunk loading lag. It's better to have a few angry players because their elytras dont work, rather than the entire server be angry because we're constantly lagging from players flying around loading chunks too quickly.
Here at Pl3x, we really don't like to set any rules or laws down. We feel this type of thing is pretty much common sense and that most people know the difference between right and wrong. Buuut, we do understand this seems to be an impossible thing to comprehend for some people. It is because of these few that we must lay down some ground rules. So here it goes.
Rule #1) Don't do anything that would get you banned.
That's it. Just one rule. Pretty simple one, in my honest opinion.
"But that’s too vague!", yes yes. I hear you, and we agree. It’s vague for a reason. We are not your babysitter. We are not your parents. This is a privately owned server which we openly give public access to. We have every right to refuse our service(s) to anyone for literally any reason we want.
Being here is a privilege. If you are enjoyable to be around, then you will be fine here. ^_^
