Borbarad13 - Builder Application

Minecraft name:

What do you like the most about redstone?:
I love intelligent storage systems and the fact that very complex machines
can be build from very basic redstone components.

What’s a thing you have made which demonstrates redstone knowledge?:
I would like to to demonstrate two things:

  1. A binary counter
  2. A prototype where the contents of a shulker box can be converted into bits (Shulker Box ROM).

What does the thing do?:

  1. Binary Counter
    –The counter counts 8 bits up starting from 0000 0000 and then adds 1 each cycle.
    – The counter uses dispensers with powdered snow as toggles (or water buckets in case of earlier MC versions)
    – The counter has a reset mechanism and a basic clock, which can be used optionally

  2. The Shulker Box ROM (Prototype)
    – Firstly, items are taken out of a shulker box
    – Then each item is filtered: Water bottles count as a “zero”. Other unstackables count as a “one”.
    – 8 bits are read this way and stored into a locked repeater setup.
    – The items go back into the shulker box.
    – The order of items is preserved throughout the process, so that the information can be re-extracted again.

What do you plan on making for your build trial?:
I want to build 1) in the trial and if there is sufficient time then also 2)

Do you agree with the rules?:
Yes, I do.

Your trial build is not sufficiently advanced. The bar for trial builds is at or above the level of a 4 Bit ALU. Please respond with a new build if/when you decide on one.

Hey Les,
thanks for getting around so quickly. Guess we will have to park the application.

Guess we will have to park the application.

Could you clarify what you mean by this?

Hey Les,
I mean that I don’t have anything else at hand at the moment and there is no plan at the moment from my side to submit something new. I might change my mind in the future though (e.g. plugging together 2 * 4 XORs with some inverters and some carry and control lines) to fulfil the “advanced” requirement. I don’t know what state transitions your application process allows. So you could set this to “parked” or “declined” or whatever you may see fit.
