I tried making a counter like I did a long time ago, but this time with a small challenge:

Make the counter work so that it runs completely on binary values.

This is the result, a binary clock powering 4 logic relays(basically OR-gates) that distribute the boolean signal and encode it into numeric sets(the number under the AND-gates represent how many lasers have to hit the gate in order for it to turn on). These then get distributed once again over the display to trigger different parts to display the number. The counter ranges from 0 to 15, since I would have to create even more gates in order to process further values, which would drop the speed into a bottomless pit.

Importand note: Thanks to the fact that this scene uses masses of lasers(with scrips), it runs very slowly. Only download if you are using a device that is capable of handling the scene.

Since the very first 4 OR-gates are littered with 15 lasers each, I used a scene.my.variable instead of using entitybygeomid to increase the speed a bit.

When input bit #2 is on (high) by itself, rather than the resulting output being 2, it displays as 8. :o

Also, the output seven segment digits appear much better if you make the background black (the same color as the segments when they are off).

Other than those minor things, you did a good job on it. :tup:
Ah, I forgot to change a variable inside the lasers of the 0100, 0010 and 0001 digit that were supposed to trigger the not gate of 0, resulting in 2 beeing made of 2 and 0, which overlays to 8.

Your suggestions have all been inputted/fixed:lol:
Nice work. :tup: :tup:
Wow. 10
:tup: very good! :tup:
Wow... 16/16
This brought my PC to its knees. If someone made a full computer with this, I think mine would explode. Great work though!:tup:
A computer in a computer. Seems legit!
His PC has knees? Weird!:o
