I have a (very) big redstone contraption used to store numbers for ALU's or minecraft computers. As of with most inventions, They get upgraded to preform better/get smaller from time to time, so to make it better, In this case easier to use I am adding some aditional features like Reversing and bit-shifting. For better understanding of the problem I probebly need to explain exactly how this devise works:

The device is made out of 8 cells each made out of 8 RS Nor-based latches. These cells can each be selected here on the orange lines on the SIA(Short for Selector Input Area). As you can see thee is not much space there due to the black lines coming across Selector Input Area

So basically what I want to do is make it so only one line can be activated at the time (In this case all lines are activated) The lines are spaced out like this one line, one air block, one line, one air block, and so on. The length of the measuring device should be around 4-5 blocks wide (or 4 blocks across the length of the lines so it does not touch the black lines) but it can be as tall and long as you want.

I tried several designs for fixing this problem but all of them failed by causing a clock rather than turning of access for the lines to pass trough a signal. Does anybody know how to do it?

Here are some other pictures for those interested: Total Device As you can see here the selection part I was talking about is in the down left corner of the picture. (The orange lines if you didn't understand already).

Other Side Here is the other side of the device which can also be used if you want for the device.

The easiest way would be to use buttons rather than Levers, and hook them up to a latch. Then the output for each can be wired to the reset of every other. I am confident this can be done in the dimensions you specified.

Also, if you were using levers because the signal is going to come from another component then just add a Sticky piston with a block facing upwards and a repeater pointing into it. It should shorten any pulse to 1 tick. Comment if you need pictures on anything. (Sorry I am not designing the whole thing, it is quite long to do and I would need to work out a few things, but I'm sure you can do it :D)

  • thanks bro, that will do I se what i can do with those tips Jan 21, 2015 at 10:10
