What do you like the most about redstone?:
I find it mindblowing that with just an inverter and a way to do OR, it’s possible to run any conceivable program. Also, I love building up complex systems from nothing and watching everything come together.
What’s a thing you have made which demonstrates redstone knowledge?:
An 8-bit computer, plus an assembler for its instruction set. Though most of the components are not designed by me, the instruction set, control logic, architecture, and assembler are mine.
What does the thing do?:
- 8 seconds / cycle
- 8 dual-read registers, 3-operand instructions (dst, lhs, rhs)
- Support for immediates with most instructions
- All instructions can be made conditional, and are skipped if not enabled
- Assembler generates a datapack that loads the program into the ROM
- Seven-segment display (signed or unsigned) accessible through MMIO

What do you plan on making for your build trial?:
An ALU with and/or/xor/add/subtract (and possibly more). The core adder is an instant carry design by me.
Do you agree with the rules?:
