My places

  • Montival Abbey - A medieval monastery-themed house, based on floor plans and buildings of Cistercian/Trappist monks. Construction has been suspended for now.
  • Wizard's Guild - While only a small portion was designed/built by me, I hired Lolcam as our architect, so that means I get all the credit due her.  :D We still need to finish this mess.
  • Ye Publick Mine - A place deep under the ocean where folks can go to harvest resources if they don't feel like digging their own branch mine. Under Construction.
  • Emerald City - or whatever I'm going to name it. A city funded by trading villagers for emeralds and glistening with gold
  • Undisclosed Location - An abandoned mine reopened by Deep Vein Thrombosis Mining Company to bring JamesOfJames back to his miner's roots and replenish dwindling supplies.
  • As of 2/2/2012, dibs on this town? Yep. Dibs.

TaviRider-inspired projects

And now, for TaviRider:

These dice were built mostly to test the theory that detector rail could be used to make a compact RNG. At the moment, I'd say that it is possible, though my implementation is flawed - I still get a null result and a double result on a more-than-occasional basis. The left side was built first and was found to be deeply flawed, with double results as common/more common than single results. After troubleshooting for some time to little result, I built the right side with a larger roller loop - I supposed, based on the high occurrence of the left-side roller giving double numbers, that a larger circuit for the cart might help - this one is designed so that the cart will never be touching two detector rails at once. Nonetheless, double numbers are still rolled - to help cull these, I've timed the call button to hit each NOR gate simultaneously. I've also wired the button into the reset line of the RSNOR latches with a delay, which *should* be weeding out all results but those pulled in a 1-tick window. I also attempted adding a pulse generator to the button to reduce the amount of time the NOR gates were closed, but ended up getting too many nulls. I suppose the detector rails must be producing overlapping signals still, though watching the torches would suggest otherwise.

Personal notes


Things Magekeep needs

  • Farm, maybe windmill for flavor.
