I'll let you guys come up with a way to encode the scripts in alpha-numerics that works for you.

After you have it, i'll put it into this Sticky.

Much of the the macro and material script looks like Futhark to me, but asking everyone to memorize a new alphabet seems silly so - direct substitution there with abbreviations for command words yields:

G(o) M(ine) P(lace) L(eft) R(ight)

F(orward) U(p) D(own) B(ack)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

with the right panel macros labeled
M1 M2
M3 M4
M5 M6
M7 M8



This overall gives a field that looks like this

Code: Select all
G M P L R  M1  M2
 F U D B   M3  M4
 1234567   M5  M6
           M7  M8


[Edit from dsgraham I wrapped it in a code block]

Are you anywhere near in having the alien letters for us to use/make somehow?

In order to first understand proper scripting with your bot, you must first understand the symbols and macros.

For our BOT, macros are a set of functions that in our case tell our bot what to do. Other than the preset Tunnel and Tower our new program has blank macros.

REMEMBER! Macros are a set of functions for our bot to follow. Use macros to reduce large scripts and to repeat functions.

Our first basic script with a an introduction to bot Macros

*****Straight line digging for our bot. The Macro will be like this.******
[Move, Forward,Dig, Forward, Move, Forward] A simple macro to dig the block in front.
These functions tell the bot to move one block forward, then to dig the block in front (forward), and move one block forward after.
(match the symbols with the commands found in the Wiki)


To set this macro ensure that your bot is in your hotbar and press left trigger to activate. A program screen will show up with a list of programs select create new and a screen with strange symbols will appear. The wiki link above will show you what each symbol means.
1. Open program screen.
2. Select create new.
3. Highlight symbol for Macro 1 and press Y button to Edit. (default)
**After you elect to edit your macro another screen will pop up identical to the program screen.
4. Insert the symbols that correspond to the following (Move,Forward,Dig,Forward,Move,Forward)
5. Exit and save Macro.
**After saving your macro you will be brought back to the program screen.

Now are Dig Macro is complete, and we can add what i like to call our initiation script into our program screen. When you first activate your bot he starts out one block high and one block forward from
the way you face. We want our bot to start digging from the floor so we will input the Move, and Down symbol. This tells our bot to go down one block so
that he is one the floor.

With our Initiation symbols in place we will now input our script. Since we have made our script as Macro 1 (symbol) we will just insert it a few times lets say 5 times. Exit and save your program.


Now our Bot script (program) is complete. You can rename it to whatever you wish. Since we inserted our Macro 5 times our bot will repeat its dig function 5 times or 5 blocks in a straight line.

To Start. Select your bot in your hotbar press Left Trigger, Choose our freshly created and press A to select. Now watch your bot start digging.

Advance scripts can be made to have your bot do virtually anything. Just remember when creating scripts your bot needs to be told what to do.
