If you want to control computer access and stuff, there's a different mod for that, it's called OpenComputers.

Also, server plugins can prevent players from accessing blocks, so, yeah.

But this is ComputerCraft, a mod that is designed to mostly be an open system for players to do whatever they please. If you're worried, go and write your own system that encrypts files on disk with AES encryption and needs the password on boot to access files, as well as requires the password after it goes to sleep to unlock the computer. (It is completely possible, I've done it before.)


EDIT: This upgrade would handle the transformation Java-side, and wouldn't require the user to label their computer (although they should), to make it very straightforward. Also, the reboot issue, ever heard of a startup file and saving your state?

A computer wearing leggings makes absolutely no sense, that's why.

This is a great suggestion. It would be very helpful if you have gotten advanced computers already but then you happen to still have some normal ones. You could simply upgrade them and then you could keep the computer while getting another advanced one.

I like this idea. It doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to implement, and would make a lot of sense, as well as add needed utility to the game.

I am confused... why would upgrading reboot a computer... or why would it have to auto label to keep its hard disk?

about the rebooting thing... the computer would have to be off in the fist place to be upgraded, as you would have to pick it up.

the label thing. again with picking it up to craft it. without a label, it would lose its disk, which means if it auto labeled it would STILL have a blank hard drive.

No, you craft the upgrade and then either combine the computer, pocket computer or turtle in the crafting table, or you can just shift-right click it on to your computer/turtle.

I like it :P maybe it should be an expensive or time-consuming thing to do... like you have to craft some kind of upgrade chip first with gold and redstone pieces first? but just shift-click it into the computer...

I was thinking about posting this suggestion just the other day. My reason wasn't even that it's a pain to transfer over with a floppy. Mine was I absolutely hate my computers folder having lots of unneeded folders in it. OCD maybe?
