    Makes sense. Thanks again!

    So, imjake9, are you taking on the PailStone development? or have you heard from Hafnium? I love PailStone, and the possibilities that it can bring with improvements. Where can I submit ideas and suggestions?
  4. Offline


    I have heard nothing at all from Hafnium, neither yay nor nay. If I don't hear from him, I am planning to at the very least keep the plugin updated. I may also add some features, if I have the time.

    I have created a Git repo for the plugin here, so you can submit issues there, or you can suggest them in this thread. It's up to you. Keep in mind that development probably won't be very fast currently, since I'm busy, but I will try to keep this plugin active.

    Sounds great. I have some ideas that I will submit at Github then. Until then, a quick question about usage... My current understanding is that a pailstone IC that is providing power to a piston should be set up like this:

    [IC] -> [block] -> [lever] -> [redstone] -> [piston]

    Is there a way, with the current code of pailstone, to make that mechanism more compact?
  6. Offline


    I have tried many different patterns, but the ideal would be:

    [IC] -> [piston]

    Uh oh!

    I kinda got smacked around by some real life stuff, and don't have much time (or inspiration) for Minecraft anymore. Things are getting a bit better, and I am chasing down some extant PailStone bugs, but I'm not going to be in full-steam dev mode any time soon.

    imjake, have you made any modifications to the code? My Google code repo is suffering from a severe case of I-don't-know-how-to-operate-svn. I see you've added me as a contributor to the repo you set up on github, and I'm fine with using that as the core one.
  8. Offline


    Yay, you're back! I haven't made any modifications yet, but I am planning to. I moved the repo to GitHub because, well, I don't like SVN. Linus Torvalds, git's creator, once said, "The slogan of Subversion for a while was "CVS done right", or something like that, and if you start with that kind of slogan, there's nowhere you can go. There is no way to do CVS right."

    Anyway, feel free to do whatever you'd like with PailStone (obviously, it's your plugin :p), but I think git can work really well as a version control system. I'll maintain it if you can't, but if I do something you don't like, definitely let me know so I can change it.

    Is there a nor latch or nand latch ic currently or planned?
    We are getting ready to install this plugin on our server to replace falsebook and several of my builds use nor latches.
  10. Offline


    Both are currently implemented in the "logic" IC. Take a look at the site for more information.

    imjake9 thank you for the quick reply. I must be looking in the wrong places. I just spent 30 minutes again today looking at every forum reply and on site and still cannot find this NOR LATCH IC implementation you mention. The only logic IC's listed are AND, OR, NOR, NAND, XOR and XNOR. I could connect two NOR IC's to create one but thats not what I was asking. Can you be a bit more specific on where in the site I might find more information and the correct syntax for creating a latch.
  12. Offline


    Ah, got it. I misread your post. PailStone does not currently have a latch IC, but I could definitely implement one, if Hafnium doesn't object. The only question is whether is should be part of :logic or if it should be a new IC. What do you think would make the most sense?
  13. Pls help? :'(

    Love this plugin. Is it just me having trouble with areas? I create an area using /pail area add somearea and then I put up an :area sign, but after a couple of flips of a lever, only a section two cubes wide is restored, and the rest of the area seems forgotten.

    Am I doing something wrong, or expecting this to behave differently to how it is intended?

  15. Offline


    I think it should just be part of the logic. No need to make a new IC. It could be called NORL or NANDL for example.
    examples from falsebook:

    Also and I dont want to ask too much but a delayer is an IC I used too. I need to figure an easy way of creating one using pailstone. Here is falsebooks version of it:

    Thanks again bo.
  16. Plugin dead again? Because i wait now since 3. May of an answer and nothing :(

    Here my question again... :(
  17. Offline


    I really hope someone picks up the torch on this plugin. Its the best thing we have since the death of falsebook.
    I just built an epic Mob Dungeon using this plugin and it sucks that it will stop working very soon.

    i hope its works with 1.3.2 ?

    I have been trying to use this with 1.3.2 and hasnt worked, now that 1.4.2 is released i was hoping someone could post here once it is fixed or some way to get it to work with 1.4.2??
  20. Worked for us on 1.4.2 without problems

    This project seems pretty dead, sadly. Anyone know of an alternative that is kept up to date? It's such a shame, too, because PailStone was fantastic... :(

    Hey, there. I used to be pretty active around here, but I left a long time ago. Before I left I could see Hafnium's activity dwindling, too. I'm really sad to see that this never got restarted.

    I've stopped maintaining my plugin as well, which I feel kinda bad about. I'd love to pick up my plugin up again, and I've toyed with taking over PailStone, but I just don't have the time. Still, if enough people expressed enthusiasm, I might at least try and update it. I've been off the plugin dev scene for a while, though. Convince me. :)
