Quote from Eloraam
I'm never adding a BUD sensor, they are much too low-level to be useful in general. On the other hand, a block type detector (like, say, "detect only fully grown wheat", or "detect obsidian") is going to happen. I've got very detailed notes on how that is going to work and what it's going to look like. It's all a matter of implementation time.
Three months later, I get curious, and search the topic for "detector". This is all the more reward I could ask for. With a block type detector, we could do so very much in the way of automation. Intelligent quarries that strip mine for valuable ores. Farms that only harvest ripe produce. Coloured wool databases that store 4 bits per block. A more imaginative person could so much more. I'm so eager for this to be implemented!
