What do you like the most about redstone?:
The thing I like the most about redstone, is that it can be used to create very complex logical components, like computers, while also being a great tool, to implement basic things, like for example a door to a secret survival base.
What’s a thing you have made which demonstrates redstone knowledge?:
A byte of RAM.
Also a 4Bit ALU, that is composed tilable parts.
What does the thing do?:
Byte of RAM:
it can be controlled via two four bit inputs, which are decoded, to control the writing of bits to the memory.
Reading the memory is controlled by a single toggle.
The functionality is easy to understand, so it was a great project.
It can invert, add two numbers, add one to a number, and bitshift the solution of a calculation to the right.
All the functions can be combined.
Generally the requirements for a trial ALU are: Addition, subtraction, and bitwise operations (OR, AND, XOR, NOR, NAND, XNOR). You’ll need to include those if you’re applying with an ALU as the trial build.
I designed a new ALU for the trial, which can do a combination of AND, OR and XOR. And also addition, the solution than gets loaded into a 4bit RAM module, to be reused as an Input for the next calculation.
So by combining the logic gates, you can do all of those operations.
This application has been accepted! Whenever both you and a staff member are free, feel free to ask them for a trial. You are able to try again after failing and waiting 24 hours. It is always recommended to do a practice trial with another member before starting your real one.
