Too bulky for my taste but good job I am about to try and learn redstone wire computing again
I don't get you guys. Bulky compared to what? Compared to four levers that have to be adjusted right? That's nothing. This is a six digit pin that has to be entered in the correct order. Some math wiz help me out with the probabilities. But it's very secure. You give me a lock with that security in a smaller package and I'll eat my hat.
Ok, I suck at probabilities, but I think this is right:
1in 4 chance of getting the first number right, 1 in 4 for second and so on... so ¼x¼x¼x¼x¼x¼= 1/4096 for six digits. ...I think.
Lever lock would be, ½x½x½x½=1/16.
Did I do that right? If so... 1/4096 > 1/16
Or were you referring to some other kind of lock.
BTW if I am doing that right, my 6 button (3 digit PIN) combo lock would be 1/216. Yuck. But my 9 button (4 digit PIN) would be 1/6561. Not to shabby but a lot larger.
What the hell are you talking about. Forgive my frustration but, there aren't 16 "settings". Four levers, yes, there are 16 possible ways to set up the levers. These are buttons, with a SIX DIGIT PIN! /rant.
exept... the order also counts here :smile.gif:
So it's 1 in 4 (1/4) chance per 'digit' to guess it right
Which means the amount of combinations is (1/4)^n where n is the amount of digits
So, are you saying I was right? Math! Head! Hurts! So it's one chance in 4,096 not one in sixteen like Flower keeps saying...
So you're good at redstone wiring, but you're not a big fan of math........ interesting.
@OP: I think this is an amazing design. I never knew you could do something so complex with redstone as to create buttons that can not only have certain inputs be "saved in a memory", but to also have it reset if the code was incorrect. And honestly, if I were to try and imagine a system like this, I would have thought that it would be required to be much larger. It's unfortunate that it isn't possible to make it smaller, because I doubt most people would want to have this huge lump sticking out of their house. None the less, a truly amazing build. I seriously need to learn about redstone wiring, cuz it seems like you can do just about anything with it.
