Message block. (circuit network)

Post by Fleety » Sun Oct 09, 2016 2:27 pm

So again shortly, it would be useful to have something like message block that when it gets chosen circuit network signal, it would send your written message to chat.

Example. Power goes below 100% in accumulator, so message block gets that chosen network signal and text appears in chat: Power level below 100%. Or something...

So how would this work, say if a troll sets up a hidden combinator somewhere, to spam the chat every seconds with a huge long message?

Well you could just disable it in servers if you want?

Or it could be just private message or only selected players.

Better forum search for modders: Enclose your search term in quotes, eg. "font_color" or "custom-input" - it prevents the forum search from splitting on hypens and underscores, resulting in much more accurate results.
