Counter in seconds

Post by Binoculars »

Hello factorian friends,

The text below will be translated from French to English on Google Translate.

A second counter that resets every ten seconds in this configuration. This can be configured by modifying the rightmost decider combinator.

Thanks for your return.

I didn't notice anything in particular, even when the combiner resets.

Looks like about every 500 sets increases script update by 3. Not bad! I've created some things like this, but seems cleaner than what I arrived at.

I'm sure some are capable of doing much better than that.
My skills stop here.

I count that as two.

Technically, yeah, but constant combinators are literally half the physical size and I suspect much less script-load than any of the more complicated ones.
