    A solution for everyone: Have it so circuit nodes are only a specific material instead of ANY material?

    Thats actually a good idea. What about using iron blocks? This will also make gates expensive..

    Indeed, a good idea... Here is a variant :

    Those blocks should act like the dust form, but allows construction and block passages. All the previous ultra optimized circuits will be buildable again, and the fact that other blocks can act as isolators will lead to even smaller designs :smile.gif:

    Also, if they glow when powered, 7-segments leds will be prettier than ever!

    Why not just some other red powder combination for a new block?

    Doh. editing the image took some time...

    Also, I think circuits are going to become the new pixel art in multiplayer. Annoying crap with no creativity involved, spread out everywhere. I know a lot of people (myself included) are going to be trashing any circuits they see unless it does something really, really cool. Traps, automatic doors, that sort of stuff is okay, but if someone starts making RAM or something in an MP server, you'll regret it!

    RAM for the sake of RAM is useless.

    But you will NEED them for more advanced devices : I was working on a 3-way full directional rail junction, switchable from any side :

    [] [] :|: :White: [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] :White: [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] :White: [] [] [] [] []
    [] :White: :White: :Red: :White: :White: [] [] []
    [] :White: [] [] [] :White: [] [] :|:
    [] :White: [] [] [] :Red: :White: :White: :White:
    [] :White: [] [] [] :White: [] [] []
    [] :White: :White: :Red: :White: :White: [] [] []
    [] [] [] :White: [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] :White: [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] :White: :|: [] [] [] []

    with :White: being fixed rail tracks, :Red: being the switchable rail tracks and :|: the command levers or buttons.

    Please tell me how to do this without gates and latches?

    Maybe something a bit less expensive though, 2x2 in crafting, perhaps? Depends on what Notch wants to do, really.
    This would allow us to still do fancy optimized stuff, and mix in a bit of the old 'red stuff' torch functionality.
    Also allows us to create wall-alarms, like we did before, etc.
