If we did get PDA modems,which side would they have their modems on?
A really advanced/expensive PDA with inbuilt modem,disk drive and printer would be a thing I'd really like.

I Don't think it falls under Bug Report so i am posting it here - with changes in CC some of treasure disk programs are no longer working
Here is list that i tested as nonfunctional (sidenote - you can place disk in diskdrive with hopper ;p):

They may be broken because of the rednet changes.

Small idea: pop a Pocket Computer in a disk drive (sort of like connecting your phone to your PC to transfer data), and you can access it's data through your filesystem. (in a folder called pc, pc1, pc2, etc.) Unless we get modems (or this might be more "balanced" instead, though CC seems to focus on easy-to-craft-and-use stuff), this might be a good way to transfer data.

Well this is a fantastic idea.

Probably the back side. But I also think we should be able to pop them in Disk Drives, maybe to "charge" them without requiring other mods :)

charge? There was no information about any charging of stuff? Don't CC computers work of air? :P

Dan, looks like the API is referring to an internal class:

import dan200.computercraft.shared.turtle.core.TurtleAnimation;

inside ITurtleAccess

Dan's already been planning on doing this.

People have been asking about how these will be able to interact with the world, this will happen in two ways: * They'll have a built in wireless modem * You'll be able to place them in disk drives and copy files to them

Yep :D

I was going to recommend something like that, but don't need to now :P .

Noticed something about windows (the api) though, you can term.redirect to it, however, mouse_click (and I would assume monitor_touch) returns the value's of the parent, not the window. any plan to make clicks on windows return where on the window was clicked?

I was thinking about that. I'd imagine it'd be like using the wired modems, with modem_1, it'll probably just be peripheral.wrap('modem').

will there be any way to wrap peripherals with the PDA? for instance if I click with the PDA on a monitor, will I be able to use the monitor from the PDA?

I would suspect not, though they will have modems, so you'd be able to write some software to use them remotely.

MFR's rednet cables are the currently supported bundled cable system.

How do you have Redpower or MC1.6.4 ?

Is the turtle fuel cap of 5000 new to 1.6? It's a fair bit of a nerf, and seems it'll be a right annoyance for many non-excavator scripts (which otherwise wouldn't need to waste those few precious inventory slots on fuel items): I've fired off scripts that I've calculated to use over 200k fuel units, and previously all I had to do is throw in two or three inventory loads of charcoal before running them.

Now, even trying to refuel with just one stack of charcoal will result in the turtle exceeding its fuel cap (though it still deletes the fuel items it lacks room for, I see...). While I don't mind the idea of a more realistic cap (I've no idea what the limit was before - I've gone into the millions and can see that the concept gets silly after a while), would something like 100k be a bit much to ask? Or even half of that?

Edit: I see advanced turtles go up to 20k. That still seems fairly low, especially for the gold versions.
