#185006 make pocket computers stay on while in non-player entities (such as minecarts)

Posted by Xfel on 21 June 2014 - 04:07 PM in Suggestions

The problem is: how to get a reference to the containing entity in the first place? For items in player inventory, there is a callback getting called every tick, but that does not happen even in other vanilla inventories. To find out where it is, the mod would have to constantly scan all entities and tile entities, and that would kill the performance totally.



#185004 "Open Link" function

Posted by Xfel on 21 June 2014 - 03:56 PM in Suggestions

Yes, but in normal minecraft, you have to explicitly click on the link in the chat window, it's solely a client side thing. The server shouldn't be able to do such stuff.



#181503 Custom ROM via crafting

Posted by Xfel on 31 May 2014 - 07:41 AM in Suggestions

CTRL-S and CTRL-R are handled by the mod itself, these two never get close to lua code. so, even by rom editing, this part of computer behaviour can't be changed.



#163818 ComputerCraft app [Android]/[iPhone]

Posted by Xfel on 06 February 2014 - 05:38 AM in Suggestions

Um yeah the problem is that because of static linking&co you can't mod a c++ program the way you mod a java program. Second problem is that MCPE is not open sourced. Ok you might say "So is minecraft itself too" BUT java can be decompiled fairly easily and it till needs a lot of time to map the obfuscated names so that normal devs can work with it. C++ code is compiled to machine code, decompiling it is next to impossible. So I don't see a big chance for this, sorry.



#162604 ComputerCraft Beta Versions - Download and Discussion (1.74pr37, released Jun...

Posted by Xfel on 30 January 2014 - 06:10 AM in Beta Testing

What happened to the IHostedPeripheral class? Turtle peripherals can still do the same as before, it's just a bit more complicated, but peripherals which are created for third party tiles can't save state or get updates any more.



#144348 Colour Coded Cables [1.5/1.6]

Posted by Xfel on 11 September 2013 - 03:45 AM in Suggestions

Or rather they could if the api was used in cc.



#142190 [Openccsensors]How To Send Info Over Rednet?

Posted by Xfel on 29 August 2013 - 03:43 AM in Ask a Pro

or you can use the lua native format and don't have to use extra apis. just take textutils.serialize and textutils.deserialize.



#142189 Tile Duplicative Information

Posted by Xfel on 29 August 2013 - 03:38 AM in Peripheral Help and Discussion

you are using a static variable. it can only contain one value in the whole jvm.to solve this you will have to rewrite that completely.



#142188 Tileentitycomputer To Icomputeraccess Or Icomputeraccess From Id

Posted by Xfel on 29 August 2013 - 03:37 AM in Peripheral Help and Discussion

nope. IcomputerAccess is generated for each attached peripheral individually.



#133328 How to make and install Lua resource packs

Posted by Xfel on 13 July 2013 - 02:59 PM in Programs

So... As mods are now resource packs too... can they add their peripheral apis this way?



#130675 There will be advanced turtles!

Posted by Xfel on 02 July 2013 - 01:11 AM in General

Why is everyone expecting that this advanced turtle will just have the same functions as the advanced computer? I wouldn't be so shure about that. In the suggestions forum, the devs have stated multiple times that they don't see a reason for a turtle with colors and mouse. So it would be much more likely that this turtle has other advanced features: better inventory interaction, more peripheral slots or lower fuel usage.
