Mod highlight part 1: FicsIt-Networks




cool this was released
like yesterday or like sun like
very recently uh this is really cool so
this is a satisfying like
fix it networks is what it's called uh
let me actually build a new one just
demonstrate what it's like
uh so this is a computer inside the game
essentially oh yeah is this panna
cotta's thing
yeah exactly uh no let's build it upside
down so
this is a it's it's like here's a
computer right and it's like
it's just a frame for computers you need
to put in like a cpu
here's how i'm putting the cpu here uh
it's a little bit finicky
wait let me put this that's where i can
actually see it
there we go
so you can like i'm going to place a cpu
and you also need ram so you can put in
a ram here apparently you can run out of
so you need to put in more ram if you
need it uh
and you also need a
like an actual chip which you make so
i'm going to run over and do that if i
have the materials for it otherwise i'm
just going to buy it
i get it what is it
where is that
or maybe it's not equipment maybe it's
just maybe i just crafted actually
yeah there we go so craft a
a rom chip and you put that in the
like so and now you have a computer and
this is like it's got lua in it so you
can like actually program stuff here
so like prince hello hell
hell [ __ ] hello
hello world the classic oh
yeah and you can pretty much like access
anything uh so say that i place let's
see here
let me i have an example running but let
me show this so like
if i place a constructor here um
you can and let me hook this up with a
oh i have like what if what the [ __ ]
have i done with my hotbar
i messed up my harp are you guys
oh boy so like
in the regular base game you have like
this power connector right
but this mod also has like networking
and whatever so you can hook up like
like logic to everything now so now i
hooked up the constructor right
and then there's this item that you use
here to like get like oh here's my
constructor daddy
um and it's got like an id right so you
can like copy and paste that
and you can access it let's see if i can
remember that
i don't have the documentation open
right now so let's see if i can remember
it so it's like
uh constructor equals to
component.proxy and then you get the id
and then let's print the components
yeah so here's like here's my
constructor daddy reference
in the computer and you can like
print uh sorry so get all
the uh
instructor get members i think
if i remember correctly remember yeah so
like all the funky oh wow james calm
so print m so now it's gonna print like
pretty much the interface to this
so here's like the api calls that i have
to this constructor right
so i can like i want to get yeah
so it's it's pretty much like calling
like the stuff that's
in our code and getting access to it and
you can use that
in the lua setting right so here you can
like you can change the recipe with the
and you know get the stuff so i have an
example running over here with a biomass
um where i have like here's some fuel in
and i've set up a screen here that just
displays like how much fuel is in the
biomass generator
so let me turn off the power thing
so this should be maybe running
or maybe i haven't hooked it up
oh i don't think this is producing
anything that i think that's the problem
let me make some iron plates
go make the iron plates no power what
are you talking about
i have power right here
asperboy says oh i can work while i'm
gaming as well
yeah like pretty much
like it's insane uh so yeah now we'll
display for me on this display here like
how much
fuel is in the biofuel so you can
imagine like this setups
imagine i have like 20 biofuel
generators in the beginning right
and the tedious thing about this is kind
of hard to know like what
how much fuel is in the bio mass
generators so imagine a setup here where
i have like 20 of them
and i can have like this like command
screen showing like how much fuel is
left in each
uh in each one i think there's a little
bug in my code here
sometimes this needs to be updated there
we go
so now like if i remove this it will
like update on the screen to show
and you can like you can program so like
it will give you a warning
when like biofuel is running low and
stuff like that so like say i could code
like for instance that
say this is less than 10 then it should
light up a light or something or give me
a warning sound or something so i know
that oh [ __ ] i need to run back and
refuel my biomaster energy so like
there's just so much you can do with
and this is like like on your like ui
and stuff so that
you doesn't matter where you are you'll
know more yeah yeah and like you can put
you can make like uh speaker polls here
to like in-game make a siren or
something if you
if you like
and you can code you can make like uh
you can program the splitters and stuff
to be like
for every five items should go left
every five items to go left or
right or something else like completely
what you want uh so there's just so much
like potential with this mod
specifically uh given the fact that you
can like actually
program stuff right so this spot is
and this is literally like just the tip
of the iceberg here
like what i'm showing here because you
can add like buttons
uh you can add like modules here you can
access different modules here's kind of
like a breadboard design
and customize this however you want you
can make so this is a small screen you
can also make like the large ones
um so get it get out of here mr
um how does the ram limit you on the
i don't know maybe pentacotta can answer
that but i think it's like the amount of
instruction it runs
per tick or something so like
if you want stuff to be able to run in
peril you can add more
cpus and program those i suppose
so yeah this is this this mod is insane
yeah it's really crazy i've uh i've
dropped into some of the streams so just
uh watch it it's quite nice
but anyway it is streaming right or am i
thinking of someone else
yeah no it's pinacata it's my final code
yeah uh his
uh stream is called like code
code everything oh [ __ ]
cde yeah yeah but it's really dope i
i can't wait to see what people do with
this um after every lunatic i simply
check how much memory the lower garbage
