    posted a message on Silent, lossless hopper-speed dropper elevator using observers

    I couldn't seem to find anyone that did this already. The key things are being silent AND hopper speed AND doesn't leave any items in the droppers. A torch tower can be silent and not leave items behind, but it is 50% less capacity because the torches would burn out if pulsed at hopper speed. This uses observers instead of a torch tower which can transmit the hopper-speed signal perfectly.


    Made a video as well. It's my first video.

    posted a message on Compact redstone analog counter - 15 to 1 with instant reset

    On a recent episode of Etho's singleplayer, he was making a counter using droppers and had a lot of trouble dealing with reset, and it only counted to 9.


    This mechanism uses a comparator "capacitor" and counts down from 15 to 1, and when it gets to 0 it resets back to 15 instantly. One of the comparators in this capacitor is in subtraction mode. A 1-tick pulse of signal strength 1 causes the value to decrement by 1. The image should be a good description. The hard part was doing the 1 tick 1 strength pulse, and I'm sure this can be improved .


    This can only count one way. It can count up, instead of down, by reversing the output, using a comparator to subtract the output from 15 (shown in an image). It can count a smaller range, like 15 to 7 with some additional logic, I can post how if anyone wants.


    I'd also like to mention this video by skaterzero807. He made similar mechanism a long time ago and deserves credit. This is not my video or mechanism.

    posted a message on Massive groups of slime chunks

    I wrote a program to find seeds with lots of slime chunks in a small area, just out of curiosity, and might be fun to test huge slime farms in creative. I was able to find 4x3 groups of chunks with 100% slime chunks, but have not found any 4x4 with 100%. Theoretically I guess they exist but I searched probably 150 trillion seeds and didn't find any 4x4s near spawn.


    As an example, this one has a 4x4 area with 13 slime chunks right near spawn.
    http://chunkbase.com/apps/slime-finder#682733421648135930


    I had to port the slime chunk equation from Java to c++ to run this the way I did, and I think I got it right. I will give you this code if you want.


    Any requests? I can generate massive lists of 3x3 or something. I would like to add biomes as well, but I would need the code for it in java and then port it to c++.


    Here's some of the output from the program. The O's make a map of the slime chunks.

    Note: Chunk numbers are given in the output below, not positions. Multiply by 16 to get the position. Please also confirm the location and seed with the slime finder app.
