ComputerCraft Mod is a Minecraft mod (with full multiplayer support) that adds in-game Computers. Each Computer has an operating system, a filesystem, a suite of builtin programs (including a text editor, a realtime Lua interpreter, and two games), and can be programmed to do anything you want with the easy-to-use Lua programming language. Computers can interact with redstone wiring and bundled cables from the RedPower2 mod, meaning they can be used to fully automate and control your worlds. With peripheral devices, the capabilities of computers can be expanded further, with Disk Drives adding the ability to transfer files between computers and play music, Wireless Modems adding Wireless Networking between machines, Monitors adding external large external displays and Printers adding printing capabilities.
ComputerCraft Mod Features
Redesigned Wireless Modems; they can now send and receive on multiple channels, independent of the computer ID. To use these features, interface with modem peripherals directly. The rednet API still functions as before.
Floppy Disks can now be dyed with multiple dyes, just like armour.
The “excavate” program now retains fuel in it’s inventory, so can run unattended.
turtle.place() now tries all possible block orientations before failing.
turtle.refuel(0) returns true if a fuel item is selected.
turtle.craft(0) returns true if the inventory is a valid recipe.
The in-game help system now has documentation for all the peripherals and their methods, including the new modem functionality.
