Port some of /tg/ circuitry parts

Recommended Posts

Currently, circuitry drones are completely useless because they can't open doors. So I suggest we port over /tg/'s ID readers in circuitry, so drones can open doors with whatever access they got from swiping. I also suggest porting over grippers and perhaps throwers, as that will expand circuitry drones use tremendously by making them deliver objects.

This is incredibly difficult to do. I have attempted it and found that porting it from /tg/ is harder than making a brand new temperature reagent system involving science concepts I had no understanding of from the begining.


I think a better milestone is to just port the circuits they have from baystation since we use baycode as our framework.

Baycode, ported this, and uses Baycode. So like, you wot?


By ported, as you can't really port directly to and from different codebases (/tg/, /Bay/, whatever), you kind of repurpose it to suit what you wanted it to accomplish with the framework they had if I recall right.


So yeah, Bay 'Ported' /tg/ circuits and pieces. So did Polaris.

Circuits weren't ported from tg reeeee they originated on polaris, were ported to bay, and we ported them from polaris.


TG also did a fuckhuge rewrite of them, and has since removed them.

Polaris had them first. TG ported them and changed the backend substantially. We've wanted to port some TG circuits for a while, but it's not easy to do.

Reee sorry for being so uncultured. I still want to see the current circuit system expanded by drones becoming useful.
