Mods that pair very well with UsefulCombinators:

Mods that are compatible with UsefulCombinators

Current Combinators:

  • Timer Combinator; Repeatedly counts up to Reset (Outputs a signal at reset)
  • Counting Combinator; Counts up by +1 signal or Counts down by -1 Signal , Resets if count is more than or equal to Reset unless Reset is zero
  • Converter Combinator; Converts one signal into another without losing its value ( will add all values of same signal on same wire)
  • Detector Combinator; Detects enemy units in its radius and outputs number of enemies
  • Random Combinator; Outputs a random number between Lower and Upper that changes if receives Output Signal with a value of one
  • Comparator Combinator; Compares two signals and outputs a third one if true or nothing if false (Removed in v0.3.0)
  • Min Combinator; Outputs the smallest of its inputs
  • Max Combinator; Outputs the largest of its inputs
  • Railway Combinator; Outputs a signal when next to a rail and a train goes by
  • Sensor Combinator; Senses nearby players and outputs number of players
  • Color Combinator; If input value equals one of Color Signal values, outputs that color
  • Emitter Combinator; Emits its filtered inputs over the first signal to Receiver Combinators
  • Receiver Combiinator; Receives signals from Emitter Combinator
  • Power Combinator; Outputs Power Network usage when placed next to a power pole or substation
  • Daytime Combinator; Outputs in-game time of day in hours and minutes
  • Pollution Combinator; Outputs amount of pollution at its location
  • Statistic Combinator; Outputs items (filtered) production or consumption rate as items per second
  • And Gate Combinator
  • Nand Gate Combinator
  • Nor Gate Combinator
  • Not Gate Combinator
  • Or Gate Combinator
  • Xnor Gate Combinator
  • Xor Gate Combinator

Examples uses:

  • More Complex circuits
  • Better automation control
  • Random inventions
  • Monitor in-game information such as electric network usage, pollution, etc

Usage Tutorial

Counting Combinator

To count items on belts:

  1. Place decider combinator next to belt
  2. Connect belt to input and set read belt to true and pulse to true
  3. Place Counting Combinator next to Decider Combinator
  4. Set Counting Combinator Reset Signal to 0 for infinite (or until lua throws an error :P) or desired number
  5. Set Decider condition to "Each > 0" and Output +1 signal and Output is 1
  6. Connect Decider output to Counting Combinator
  7. Watch it count!
