Oh my God! It's happening! Everybody stay calm!

Thanks a lot, crossing fingers you guys can make it! In my opinion it is fine if we wait a little longer for the pack only to include those sensors.

By the way - do existing logic gates work with ribbons performing their operation for each of the ribbons' bits? like (a, b, c, d) + (A, B, C, D) = (a+A, b+B, c+C, d+D) where + is any of existing logic operators. I believe they should, would be nice, but I see no problem if they don't. But I need to know to sleep peacefully

@Saturnus Here's what you asked for right?

With a reset to the counter the same to the so-called "timer" is not as important. Most will probably prefer to use the filter or buffer gate plus not gate oscillator as before instead of the timer because it has inherent reset (by simply holding the not gate input (or output) high, and it's on the automation layer so doesn't use any building space. That's not to say that the timer will be completely useless as there are definitely still a few edge cases where it can replace the clock sensor. But without a reset the timer will not replace a good old oscillator set up for almost anything, so basically it's just another mostly useless building.

There is a conveyor sensor mod on steam. If you need help with this, you should ask the author ^^

And while you are at it, there is still a automation port missing on the bottle emptier.

I used to lock the door when liquid almost overflow,But now I was just ignore it :D.

Soooo, how do I get Sweepy to explode?

Sweepy will automatically turn around if it gets out of range of base station (32 tiles)

Excellent. I did mean to suggest that.

Can we get an automation input on the liquid/gas reservoirs to control material output? Currently, the best way of controlling this is to build the reservoir on top of an automated door. It would be so much cleaner and nicer and more intuitive if the reservoir just had its own logic input to enable/disable its output.

I usually use a 2 door system. One for exit only, and the other for entry if liquid sensor allowes it. But its a waste of space. It would be much better if the bottle emptier would just refuse bottles via automation.

I hope this can be added into the game, too! Logic gate circuits can be made simpler.

@Ipsquiggle

You asked for a practical example. Here's why we need the reset input on the timer as well.

Right now to make a cycle counter with reset we need to make what is in the picture below.
If we had a timer with reset input you could drop the filter gates and not gate making it a lot more compact.

I agree.

Current design of time sensor is fine for playing around (like making pixel animations) or for designs "build once and forget forever" (like door gas pomps). But adding reset signal would allow to include it into more advanced logic systems. Especialy I can see a case when a system uses two such sensors and for some reason they fall out of sync. In such case hard reset of system's clocks would prove to be quite usefull

Can you please make the conveyor filter to filter more stuff (the whole genetic ooze category)? otherwise i rather keep using the mod for it.

Does anybody miss an (additional) 1x1 version of the Pixel Pack? You could make screens that have a certain shape. And it might help a lot if you just want to build colored background walls with them (idk, Just thinking)

Hey! The first law was never broken! Sweepy have never killed anyone nor his inaction never caused death. Leave him alone! And let him enjoy little things, you never know when the next corpse will appear before little lawfull robot

when will the next seed geyser reroll happen?

It's probably not going to happen for this pack, everything being added is building based, so can be easily retroactively patched in without too much destruction to your save.

Although to answer your question, the next geyser reroll is probably going to be happening Summer/Fall of this year, with the testing/release of the DLC:

This DLC is going to be quite sizable, including new game systems and many refinements on the base game.

It's very helpful when you can describe what you're trying to accomplish when you request a change or addition. There are many many subtleties and interpretations of how a particular building should work and what makes it useful or not, so we need to make sure that we're actually addressing your need and not misunderstanding. We appreciate the time you spend on this feedback!

@minespatch I think you're being called out. :wilson_sneaky:
