I just posted this description on the forum, so I figured I’d mirror it here for easier lookup. Someone suggested I name it the “Transposer”, and I think I will.
The current design of the transposer does the following:
Items that bump against the input side are sent to the output side.
Items that enter the input side through a tube are sent to the output side.
Items sent to the output side will be:
added to a tube at full speed.
inserted into an inventory
ejected onto the ground.
When it receives power, it will:
Withdraw an item from an inventory on the input side and send it to the output side.
Suck up items in a radius of the input side and send it to the output side.
I don’t have any sprites or code for it yet, so that’s all.
