Another script from my ComputerCraft Challenge series, an enhanced “go” program, which I have given the clever name of “do”!
This script has only a few modifications from the stock “go” version, but it adds references to all commands for a regular digger turtle! I’ve also gone ahead and cleaned up the code such that it will work both with and without my “t” turtle API. That way if you just wanted the “do” script, no need to install extras, but if you like the location tracking of the “t” API, it will automatically use that API to keep the internal location correct!
The code is included below after the break, but for easier access and install, it’s also hosted over at TurtleScripts!
This is the API I wrote to simplify several common turtle functions, along with integrating internal location tracking. For the moment the turtle needs to be facing north when initialized, but that is something which is high on my list to fix. Load the API either using os.loadAPI() or by placing the script file (named “t”) in the /ComputerCraft/lua/rom/apis/turtle/ folder of your Minecraft installation.
If you have GPS start any script using the API with t.initLoc() to sync the internal position with that of the GPS. I’ll edit this post a bit later when I get this up on TurtleScripts so it can be pulled from a computer in-game.
I have been very busy over the past two months! It was about that long ago that I decided to relaunch my YouTube channel as a place for my “Let’s Play” gaming videos. I’ve worked hard to bulk up the channel since then and now I really need to give things a cohesive feel.
You can take a look at the sidebar to the right to see what I have planned for my YouTube upload schedule. You can see my gaming, and so my channel, tends to focus on Minecraft and other indie games of that sort. I don’t plan on following that trend exclusively but I’m sure that will be the central theme. There are a number of things that I’d like to do missing from that schedule, but as I get more efficient at producing videos I’m sure I’ll be able to squeeze in more.
A game that I need to get back into the schedule as soon as possible is FTL: Faster Than Light. I had an absolute blast playing that game for the first time and I promise that getting more video of it up has been on my mind ever since!
Finally I want to mention that I wont be “spamming” this blog with every video upload I make anymore. I’ve added a new page which will show the latest videos on my channel, it’s up on the menu bar, you can check what’s new there. The only videos which I will post here are any vlogs that I do, as I hope to begin using those instead of posts here. They’ll focus on giving channel updates and announcements, along with personal bits about myself as I see fit.
I appreciate everyone who’s been watching and subscribing, and especially thank you to those who have taken the time to comment on my videos. I love comments! So until I see you from my first vlog, happy gaming!
