Rotaing Block

Post by DarganLor on Fri Dec 30, 2016 8:44 pm

Hello tsunamayo,

I have started playing around with the latest build and it is awesome! I built a cockpit with an opening canopy with the hinge block, and it works great. I'm now trying to build deploy-able landing gear, just to find out that I don't fully understand the logic system.

I have built a rotating block and bound it to a slider control, but on activating it through a button it ignores the slider position. How can I make it stop at the desired position?

Another question, when I have bound a system to a switch, is there a way to rebind it again without destroying the switch?

Ok, could you please tell me wether the block is rotating 360 or not at all?
With rotating block the only thing to understand is that a signal of 0 map to 0 deg and 1 maps to 360deg. Now if you input 0.5 for example, the block will move towards 180deg. It behave as a target value. Once there you have to change the value to make it move again. If it was a 360deg it will go 300-200 then 180deg. If it was at 0 it will go the 100-180 deg route.
So if you need a flip-flop mechanism where the block rotate from 90deg to 180 deg for example, you need to produce a signal of respectively 0.25 - 0.5. A good and easy way to do that is to use the mix block: link a switch (produce 0 or 1 successively), then input a = 0.25 and b = 0.5, so the output will be mapped to this 0.25-0.5 interval. This block is just doing a linear interpolation between a and b with your input as the interpolating coefficient .
I wanted to do a quick video on this, but I am away from my computer for two days so it will have to wait a bit, sorry! Also for retractable landing gear I need more progress on collision, I will do another post to explain where I stand on collision, but It will be a good opportunity to work on that!

Also I will be adding a rotating block that rotate constantly to do radar dishes or other mechanism.

Thanks tsunamayo. Much better now and actually very simple! Now I can finish my landing gear...

By the way, I saw that there is a small rotating block for the lego bricks, but it seems non-functional yet? Hope more logic systems come in the future for the lego bricks! Tons of possibilities!

Yes in fact the small rotator for brick is made for turret, you can check the post over here : http://skywanderers.forumjap.com/t35-turret-creation-workflow
Now this is crappy I will change the turret system (this is what I explain in the post), and this brick will become the equivalent to the big rotator. I will also add more little mechanism for bricks.
Also I will also add a rotator that rotate continuously in one direction, for radar dishes ect.

There is drill block unfortunately the preview dont show up I will fix it, but you can use it to destroy block around. This is the block just before the beam block (so one before last)

hmm i dont think its a high priority infact it may be a good thing if you plan to have different types of drill heads as then you place the motor and the actual drill head seperatley
