I've seen a lot of redstone computers, and they amaze me. I figured becuase I know all of the basics, I want to make my own.


Can anyone give me some tips to start?

You need these things so practise them first:

Gpu-
Ram-
Rom-
Cpu-
Alu-
Control panel-
Busses-

Try it out >:D

Redstone computers are very, VERY complicated. You might want to get better then the basics, such as making your own redstone clock, or perhaps a complicated locking system. If you are very advanced in redstone, you could either download some maps with computers to reverse-engineer it or you could watch video tutorials on how to make one.

Have fun!

I haven't been able to find been able to find any recent videos about how to make them, and I'd like a video that uses the new features of minecraft :)

If you know the basics just learn some redstone and you're ready to go. If you want to start off small go make an ALU and hook a tiny ram and rom block to it so you can make some flashing torches or something.
A whole computer with I quote
Gpu-
Ram-
Rom-
Cpu-
Alu-
Control panel-
Busses-
is serious work. Start off small.

What is the point of him Building a GPU ( graphics processing unit ) when he wants a Basic computer to start with. Most basic computers just display the value of a certain RAM position .

All I want is to be able to add. If I can make something that adds I will be very proud of myself :P

... What you want to create is an adder. That's one of the main functions in an ALU.

And I come right back to one word.

How. I've watched some videos, but none of them really made a whole lot of sense, the people either moved too fast or didn't tell you what he used.


(I'm kinda stupid and I get lost realllyyy easily)

Do you know the gates. What they Do and how they work. Can you build all of them In minecraft. Do you know binary. If Yes then Build 4 or more of this circuit. If no Here is some infomation ou might concider reading.
Binary numeral system
Logic gate
Redstone Circuits

This is a slow Basic adder. Connect all the A and B lines to Leavers. Connect the first adders Cout to the nest Adders Cin . Now use leaver set A to input you're first number in binary. then use leavers set B to input the Other number . then look at S shows the state of that bit . By looking at all the S this is the result of the addition.

This is a drawing of who they should be hoked up.

Hope fully this helped .

That actually really did help. I prefer being able to read something than listen to someone telling me how to.

I figured an adder was probably something very simple, I just needed to figure out how to wire it.

Well it's sort of like normal adding, actually.
Eg: 00001011 + 00001001
00001011
00001001+
00010100 <---Result
The basic concept is 1 + 1 = 10, so you need to carry the 'ten' over to the next number on the left.

Good to hear. But keep in mind this is just a simple slow adding system After you can build One of these you might consider trying a harder type . But for now this will be fine. Here is the adder page For when you have finished the first one.

well, you can follow my tutorial witch currently goes as far as the final CPU (salaga's definition) (not yet computer)
found here: http://www.minecraft...utorial-series/
not to advertise, it IS what you are looking for.

Here is an adder
[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/mEruw.jpg[/img]
Ok here is how to read binary numbers.
00000001 is one
00000010 is two
00000100 is four
if you are wondering what three is in binary is 00000011.
How you get that you add all the numbers together.
There is a pattern.
Here is the pattern.
00000010 = 2
00000100 = 4
00001000 = 8
2 * 2 = 4
4 * 2 = 8
Hope this helped.
