I dont really know much about coding things, but I do dabble in lua for CC. However I find when I want to mess around with scripts is usually when I'm on my netbook (which cant run minecraft) and dont have a lot else to do XD


The Challenge: An out of game CC emulator, that runs the lua scripts the same way as CC does in game, with a similar interface. Hopefully something that will run on a computer that minecraft wont run on so that we can work on scripts without access to minecraft

I'm sure it could be done,
But I doubt it would be easy as you would need to interpret both the lua code and somehow be able to interpret the CC functions seperately, With a specialized library of some kind.

I don't think this is as hard as it sounds. All you need to do is emulate some functions: fs.*; redstone.*, term.*, turtle.* can probably be ignored.
Most of the apis are defined in lua, the other are (parts) of lua standard libraries.

You can get LuaForWindows or whatever OS you have, then make an emulator for CC (in lua) that then loads the /lua directory.

Still, this would be quite a messy task, as you still have to do ticks, etc, and you'd probably want multiple computers being emulated, too...

I swear if I knew anything about coding I'd make one myself, but realy we do have so many brilliant programmers out there! and I'm sure they themselves could see a use for such a thing :x

yes but that requires you to have the game installed (that is where it gets the CC functions from), maybe you can copy the mod folder onto your netbook and direct it there

That's why I made it search the working directory first, And the next version will solve this even more

This is interesting indeed! Having minecraft installed and having to run it are two very different things, the latter which my poor netbook can actually handle. I cant wait to check this out ! (waiting for CC to catch up with minecraft x3)
