Are you tired of walking ten miles just to see if 2+2 = 4? Do you cringe at the thought of flattening out an area the size of New York just to create a simple drum machine? Trouble yourself no more, these are the exact problems that drove me to create Redstone Pro!
Redstone Pro uses a circuit system similar to Redstone from Minecraft, a system that is simplistic, yet allows for very complex creations. What's different, though, is that Redstone Pro introduces components which allow you to compact complex circuits into chips that fit into a single tile. Redstone Pro also introduces internet networking support, allowing you to send information from your chip to another over the internet.
Each new piece allows 30 x 20 blocks of space. These blocks can include inputs and outputs, which correspond to ports on a chip you create in the chip designer. This chip can then be included in other components, which can in turn be included in other components, allowing you to create your own tile types. A immense amount of complexity can now fit into one tile!
An output on your computer can send its state to an input on another computer, allowing much larger scale projects, and making collaboration easier.
I'm releasing this as an Alpha, since I haven't been able to do extensive testing. Since I'm not an electrician, and know very little about how to create circuits, there's bound to be some issues that will need correcting for future releases. As such, this tool is not meant for any serious purposes. A collection of circuits is available to get started, but if you create something cool with this software please save it and post it up, I'd gladly add it here and distribute it with the game.
