What is Open Automation Mod
Open Automation Mod will focus on two things: adding automatable features to other mods, and doing other sorts of Automation. “Automate all the things.”
Modules of OA:
The original module. Requires OpenComputers to exist, in order to function.
We have one feature still that’s in the OC module. The Power Out-Converter. This block converts OC energy, to RF, sending it out to wherever you wish.
There is also a feature from the lasers in the OC module. The Computer Data Laser
It has one method:
When received it sends a signal with the signature:
“laser_message”, address_of_component_received_on, message
It can be sent into any component in the network /except/ the actual computer block.
Want to transport your power along a long distance but don’t want to use a Tesseract? The solution is here – the invisible lasers of longdistanceness! These lasers can travel a long way, up to 400 blocks in any direction to be specific. They only go where there is air blocks however.
There are 2 types of lasers:
Energy Laser Emitter – Send RF power into any side of the block, and it’ll emit a laser out the other side!
Energy Laser Emitter (Energisable) – Allows energy in the laser to be energised once every 100 pulses. (5 seconds)
Laser Energiser (Solids) – Energises energisable lasers that pass through it. Requires items to be piped into it.
Human Laser Emitter – Requires RF Power. Right click on any side of the block, it emits a laser out the other side and teleports you all the way to the receptor on the other end! Sends a ping every 5 seconds out every direction, this can be turned off by shift-right clicking.
Mirror (Laser) – Right click to set the two sides that it’ll reflect lasers. It reflects at a right angle.
Double Mirror (Laser) – Right click to set the input side, and rotate what two output sides there are.
Laser Receptor – When it receives any lasers, it will output the things that were transferred out the opposite side.
