What do you like the most about redstone?:
It is hard to say what I like about redstone. It was always something that intrigued me as it is very accessible for every person that plays Minecraft. (Of course it can be really complicated when you go into the details, but this is not the point)
With redstone you can build extremely complicated things and very simple things that make your minecraft playthrough easier. There is something for everyone.
What’s a thing you have made which demonstrates redstone knowledge?:
Over the years I’ve built many things, but for this application I’ve build a Serial Hexadecimal Number Sorter.
What does the thing do?:
The Serial Hexadecimal Number Sorter does sort the numbers inputted into the machine from large to small.
So when someone is inputting
[5, 1, 3, 4, 12, 15, 8, 8, 3] the output will be
[15, 12, 8, 8, 5, 4, 3, 3, 1].
The range of numbers is 1-15 (1 and 15 included).
The algorithm is the counting sort algorithm so:
The number of different values that can be sorted:
Best case: 8640 numbers
Worst Case: 576 numbers
This is because I am storing the numbers in a dropper and one dropper can only hold a maximum of 576 items.

What do you plan on making for your build trial?:
Even though this doesn’t sound like much, but I would like to explain how adders work with a simple example (Which are RCAs as they are simple to understand and someone can see the different components faster than with CCAs).
Do you agree with the rules?:
Yes, I do.
