comment How can I level water?
@NiteCyper It was explicitly broken by devs, since otherwise you could grief by towering up high, and building a large 'L' of source blocks. Without the restriction on when source blocks propagate, it would create a giant cube of source blocks, taking forever to remove.

comment What is the best way to improve the relations between races in order to start a federation
Isn't that the only way they get minerals to trade? Or can they have some non-moon based mines?

comment How to survive a design hack
You can even build 2 miniforts or a full Fortress before starting the hack. The repairs are quite useful.

You'll also need them to colonize their moons.

comment What are the differences between Defense of the Ancients (DotA) and League of Legends (LoL)?
This seems a bit like it's written for people who already know a lot about DotA, but I'd like to know more about what DotA does. What is a river rune?

You can empty the queue and turn on building automation to see what the top suggestion would be.

comment How do I create a hidden staircase?
I think I can make it work, I have worked out what wires need to be on when, but it'd take 15 separate states for 5 blocks. I think I can factor out one bit to a separate circuit. I've got a week with no internet to figure it out.

It's still very useful, it's just that this is a very hard problem.

GAH, I can get power along a series of lines to turn on one way and off the other, but that isn't enough to build a retracting pillar of pistons, as they are only sticky when they are retracting, you would need to roll power upwards past each one as well. I might write it up with screenshots once I get back and have internets

So, when hooking this us, you would put a monostable circuit on each of the set, reset lines and say hook that up too a RS-NOR latch and a button? And the outputs to the pistons as needed.

He said not with stair blocks, and that it is flat when inactive. This is an easy arrangement that doesn't solve his problem.

comment What is going on with these pistons?
In case I wasn't clear, all the pistons are facing to the left. No piston is pushing another piston.

Well, compare swimming up a waterfall to swimming upwards in a lake. That's the difference.
