What exactly do the new rednet protocols do? I don't usually use the rednet API, I just use the modem API mostly.

From what i seen it my small test it adds ability to create rednet repeatres in order to increase range of message. Kinda nice to have a baseline you know most pepole on server will use so you can plan based on it ;D on last server i played we had 3 repeater sytems that didnt understand eachother ;D That was fun ( it was not )

Hello! Can I talk about CC's API? (which means the API source files for modding like adding original upgraded turtles)

In the 1.6 Beta, the structure of the API has broadly changed and I feel almost all of them are beautifully arranged and some added files and methods are also great for me (teleportTo() is wonderful!).

But, I guess some methods which existed in the former versions are missing or maybe deleted. Especially, ITurtleAccess.getSlotContents(). setSlotContents(), storeItemStack(), dropItemStack(), deployWithItemStack() were very useful but I can't find them in the API of pr4...

Of course, there is a method getInventory(). So, I can write substitute codes for getSlotContents, setSlotContents, storeItemStack and also I can use for example FakePlayer for writing a deployWithItemStack-like method.
But, dropItemStack is a bit problematic because turtle's dropping animation is seemingly unique...

Is there any plan to add these methods in the API? or are they deleted?

Anyway, thank Dan for your great upgrade!

For the turtles!

Anyway, I love how dan has started implementing Lua enhancements and other things from user feedback. Feels like the community is a lot more connected to the mod now.

How do we use rednet on a personal computer? The API is there, but I can't tell it a side for the modem to be on.

You don't.
Then why is the API enabled?

There are supposed to be modems on them by the time 1.6 final comes out. You can use peripheral.find("modem") to verify that no modem peripheral is available.

talk is redundant with the built-in chat, so not worth the trouble to fix it to work with the changes to term.

I was planning on updating battleship today, since dan200 said pr6 is getting close to the finish line, but it appears he did it for me? I will still take some time today to thoroughly test it, make sure everything's working properly.

:edit: aand done. There were several bugs in there that I don't think are even related to this update? not sure how they went unnoticed, one was a basic line wrapping error that was covering part of the player's grid with the word "cursor"...

  • read() now handles for "term_resize" correctly for internal needs
  • equip now return errors (by the looks of it)
  • some help text added :D
  • /autorun/.ignoreme don't like you.
  • multishell handles "term_resize" nicely and correctly passes it to all processes (so they can deal with it too).
  • paint error foxed
  • edit handles "term_resize" too :P
  • monitor does its magic and causes "monitor_resize" to became "term_resize"
  • chat got avesomer and handles "term_resize"
  • mail and mailgui got axed
  • equip and unequip added

What are you doing still reading this text? you should be out there testing!

I've submitted a new nsh treasure disk resource pack that updates it to be 1.6 compatible (tested last on 1.6pr0, but I haven't noticed significant Lua changes that would affect it since), so I hope that it can be included prior to the 1.6 full release. It is posted over in the submission sticky post in Programs.

Mail got shelved for time. It'll probably pop up again in a future release, but for now it was something unfinished I could safely postpone to get the release out quicker.
