Sensor blocks!

    Sensor blocks have been gotten an idea from Sensor mod,
    but they fit in vanilla game more than it.

    When these sensor blocks sense anything, they "output" any key signals,
    as same as a player press a key.
    For example, if they're set C key, cannons would shoot a bullet when the sensors work.

    Idea 1. Touch sensor
    Touch sensor is similar to pistons, but it can't be put other blocks on it.
    When anything touch it, it output any keys.
    If its "sensitivity" is maximum, it sense everything even a wind.
    If it's minimum, it sense only huge impacts like a bomb explosion.
    "Output time" is how long it's outputting keys. If this is much long,
    it could control steering hinges, or shoot crossbows several times.

    Idea 2. Infrared sensor
    Infrared sensor senses things into a certain area.
    It can be change a range.

    Idea 3. Speed sensor
    Speed sensor senses its own speed.
    Each speed sensors have "threshold" value.
    When it reaches this speed, it outputs any keys.

    Idea 4. Heat sensor
    Heat sensor senses fire.
    When the neighboring blocks are set a fire, or flames hit the sensor directly,
    it outputs any keys.

    Examples how to use them:

    I believe they will produce great innovations to Besiege.
    I'm glad if these ideas would be considered!

    I like this idea, this would allow for syncronizers in besiege.

    This would open up new challenges for automated zone completions.

    Simulating key-presses are a bit complicated though, for example, Automatron uses a separate java program to simulate (if I remember correctly)
    And should they also be able to control the camera, etc.? Should it do key-sequences, like Automatron does?

    Though personally I would enjoy seeing it in the vanilla game.

    awsome. this could be used in alot of awsome and creative ways fully automated gearboxes highly advanced transformers without the use of the automatron mod.

    could be cool to see in vanilla besiege.

    Logic gates, timers and height sensors would also be useful

    I mean, you can have it now, by using the sensor-mod.... :p
    (though idk if it's up to date, lol)

    I've seen a lot of sensor block suggestions and yours is the only one that's well written and well illustrated and so successfully convinced me that...
    *I need this*

    yes, but i suggested an idea easy to realize in vanilla UI. (idk how hard to do, tho...)
    Sensor mod is awesome, but there are few people using it, then i can't upload sensor machines in the workshop (if they don't have it, it would be a trush...).

    Does the sensor mod works in the latest version of besiege?
