================ ORIGINAL POST ================

I just started a new series on my YouTube channel which I am calling The ComputerCraft Challenge. In this series I will be attempting to mine, build, and just plain survive without doing any of the work by hand, instead programming turtles to do everything from day one.

I just put up the first episode and I'd love any feedback people are willing to give. I'm no ComputerCraft guru, but I'll learn quickly or die!

Thanks! I'm enjoying it so I'll be doing a few more episodes at least. :D/>

That's a good point, really I should have a crafty turtle instead of a crafting table shouldn't I?
I'll have to rectify that. Episode 2 is already recorded, but thereafter I'll do more through a crafty turtle.

Watched the first episode so far and definitely going to watch the next one. This seems like it could be a really interesting series and Noodle is right, your voice is great for a let's play.

An SMP version could be really fun, but I imagine less stressful, having more eyes and likely collaboration.

Another thing that would be cool is to have more people in the community try the CC challenge (in SSP) and post videos. To have it be like the old 404 challenge or things like that.

Hi, remember me from youtube? (my name there's jillheden)
I got a bukkit ready for a SMP version, with only ComputerCraft 1.4.1 (not tekkit!)
My only problem left is to ban every item/blocks except tools and CC related blocks, and to get a IP for the server (currently it's on my laptop :(/> )

EDIT: ⇈ Done! ⇈ Only thing left is to put the (bukkit) server on a server or just a stationary computer.

Decided to try it and wow, that didn't feel like an hour. Seemed like I spent a lot of time in manual control, which seems to defeat the point, but I was adding some more restrictions as I went along. I was doing it at first, but shortly in I decided I wouldn't directly manipulate the turtle's inventory, but use drop to make it give me stuff, and suck to pick up things I drop for it, which isn't something that can easily be generalized to a higher level than "suck to slot #". Also decided I was not going to break the turtle, which means either elaborate searching algorithms for things like finding the next tree - which would take too long to write for this context; writing single-use programs every time I need him to go somewhere; or just manually controlling him.

Can't upload it until I get home, out of town right now and with my current internet it'd take several days to upload this even in 240p.

For the next chapter, I might "cheat" a bit and load my turtlex api, which will give me a leg up on doing a lot of inventory-related automation.

It would be better if you added the videos on the topic, instead of having each video in the comments...
Or, you know, have both...

I actually quite enjoy this series! I wish I could help get it a bit more noticed, but I don't really have any way to...
