Today, I programmed a ComputerCraft turtle to place a group of Advanced Monitors on a 5 x 7 wall. To my surprise, the monitors did not merge into a single monitor as normally occurs when I place a series of monitors 'by hand.' Instead, they appeared as individual monitors.
I'm intrigued by these two possibilities of placing monitors next to each other.
- Is this a bug?
- Is there a way that I can get my turtle to make larger monitors?
- Is there a way for me to place monitors next to each other 'by hand' and define them as separate objects?
FYI, I'm running Minecraft 1.12.2 Forge with the CC: Tweaked mod on macOS 10.11.
About the screenshot included here: The group of monitors on the top illustrate what they looked like when placed by a turtle. The large monitor at the bottom was created by breaking a few separate monitors by hand and then re-placing with new monitors. The remaining separate monitors then merged with the newly-placed monitors to become a larger one.
