Recently expanded my windmill tower. With the building this wide, the windmill shouldn’t actually be turning in real life, but oh well. I spread the mechanical power out to the three machines here; Saw, Mill Stone, and Turntable. The switches on the left side of the screenshot control each one individually and the one on the far wall is the master switch. If all machines are off, so too will the main gear box. If any single or combination of machines are on, then so too will the main gear box. The master switch is a safety precaution for rain, allowing me to disengage the main gear box without worrying about running around and turning off up to three other switches. Eventually I’ll replace it with a detector block.
There’s some red stone circuitry on the roof (it just ANDs all the inputs) but it’s ugly and I don’t feel like showing it. I did learn about sending redstone power vertically through inverters today, though. That’ll come in handy when I get around to making my elevator.
Nice tileset by the way! I’d love to hear more about sending redstone power vertically, I currently build 3x3 spirals for that which are ugly, cumbersome and prone to error.
Put a redstone torch on a block, then put a block directly above it, then put a redstone torch on that block, and so on. It’s a bit slow (1 tick per 2 blocks) and it only transmits up, but it only takes up one block in the horizontal plane. There might be a way to do something similar in a 2x2 column that transmits down.
