Redstone Fader Iron Gate
|Redstone Fader Iron Gates|
|Next tier||Redstone Fader Gold Gate|
The Redstone Fader Iron Gates are items added by BuildCraft and a specific design of the Basic Gate to control and/or interact with all pipes of BuildCraft via one configurable function. The redstone fader design has a additional option available to interact with different strength of redstone signals (see Usage). The gate has also an AND and OR version. The next tier is the Redstone Fader Gold Gate with four configurable functions.
The Redstone Fader Iron Gate can be placed on all types and sides of the BuildCraft pipes with a right-click. By holding the crouch-key and right-clicking the gate can be removed without to destroy the pipe.
Note: The basic function is that the gate checks the precondition in the right slot, and, if this precondition is true, executes the option in the left slot. The bar between the left and right slot light up red when the precondition is currently True. The difference between the AND and the OR version is when it will trigger an action. Both will trigger if one precondition is true, but if the AND version is used, and two or more conditions are set to trigger the same action, the action will only trigger when both preconditions are True. If the OR version is used and two or more preconditions are set to the same action, the action will trigger when either of the preconditions is True. The different to the Standard design is, that the Redstone Fader design has a additional precondition for all pipes to interact with different strengths (1 to 15) of redstone signals (yellow marked in the table below).
With a right-click the player can open the GUI, which has four slots (two left, two right). All slots can be configured by clicking in it. The possible options depends on the pipe where the gate was mounted:
- All options like the standard Gate (goto)
- Additional options of the Redstone Fader Gates (goto)
- Furthermore the Redstone Fader Iron Gate has the ability to interact with Blue Pipe Wire (in addition to Red Pipe Wire) to transmit and/or receive redstone signals over the BuildCraft own wire system. An example with a Diamond AND Gate is shown in the picture, but it is the same except that the Redstone Fader Iron Gate can only interact with the Red and Blue Pipe Wire. In the GUI the corresponding option is selectable if a pipe wire is connected to the gate (see below)
Additional options for pipe wire interaction
Following options are additional available for all types (kinesis, fluid, transport) if Pipe Wire is connected to the gate:
|Left slot||Right slot|
|Kinesis, Fluid, Transport Pipes||Red Pipe Signal On||Set True if a redstone signal receives the gate about a red pipe wire||Red Pipe Signal||Activates a red pipe wire signal|
|Red Pipe Signal Off||Set True if no redstone signal receives the gate about a red pipe wire||Blue Pipe Signal||Activates a blue pipe wire signal|
|Blue Pipe Signal On||Set True if a redstone signal receives the gate about a blue pipe wire|
|Blue Pipe Signal Off||Set True if no redstone signal receives the gate about a blue pipe wire|
