Great work! Only thing I noticed that the background of the green slot looks more like it needs lime dye than the dark cactus green dye, while the other colors match very well.

:)/> OMFG All you need now, is a book version when 1.3 comes out, capitals in the title and to upload to mediafire or something like it. Dropbox's links get frozen after a while.
EDIT: This is gonna be supported in my tex pack :)/>

Very cool, I hope someday this is ported to SMP then ported to bukkit because Godcraft would love a mod like this.

It'd be nice to have an accompanying scanner block to read sheet contents so that documents could be duplicated at their appropriate expense. If this functionality does come about, it would be insanely useful to have it extend to the vanilla maps.

This is by far my favorite periphrial so far. Fits the vision for this mod very nicely, and fits a niche that no other tech mod fills

Just wait for 1.3, then port it, when server and client are the same thing. And see if you can't get it to print books instead of papers at that point.

Then you just need to send it off to the tekkit dudes.

Everytime I use printer.drawchar(x,y,char)
it just gives me a sort of squarish "0"

Lol, this may be a stupid question, but what is the point for peripheral.call(side,draw,x,y,color) or where does it go in your program to change text color?

Also, are you limited to printing letter by letter?

1 the drawchar function parameters are x,y,(only one character),color(didn't mention that)

2 currently you are but you can write your own algoritm the size is 21x13 chars or 128x119 pixels

3 yoy can add your own characters in the lua.api

for example
char["A"]="(row 1)01110(row 2)10001(row 3)11111(row 4)10001(row 5)10001(row 6)10001(row 7)10001(row 8)00000"
