Well the news is already out there but Come October 30th 2013, or around that time, me and my wife will be welcoming into the world another child. We are not sure if it is a boy or girl yet but we hope that they will be healthy!
With that said I would also like to note I have not been able to play MineCraft as of late due to playing StarCraft II and Eve-Online so much. I have also been working on projects from people in game with some coding thats been needed to be done. They are hiring me to make applications for them that work within Eve-Online, If you are looking for something too feel free to drop me a line.
I should have more code here soon that will work on the turtles. If you have any idea’s for Turtle code please drop me a line and do not forget to check out my website on github the link in on the side.
I hope to get another post on here before the end of the Month till then Goodbye!
Well the past few nights I have been playing MineCraft and I have been playing around with my turtle on it his name is Leo. I was using the Tunneling program that is built into the turtles and have found out that it very minimal it will only make a 2 tall by 3 wide box. So I decided to make one that allows you to make custom tunneling program. This is the code I have so far, it is all done in Lua. I know that there is not much to it except the fact it asks you 4 questions. The questions are How Deep would you like to dig? How Tall would you like to Dig? How far to the Left do you want to Dig? And How far to the right do you want to dig? They will create the statements that will say how big of a opening you want and how deep of a tunnel you want it to be.
The code will be developed over the next few months to be a truly custom Tunneling program please check back often to see how it grows.
Custom Tunneling Program v0.1
Created: 2/28/2013 20:00 PST
Created By: Proopai (Eric Vasquez)
Description: This program is to use the Turtles to make wider Tunnels then 2x3.
It will allow you to state how tall you want the tunnel to go
and how wide you would like it to go along with placing a Torch.

This will be expanded little by little till it is completed. It will be able
to make a tunnel that goes in one direction for a set time limit. Refueling
is planed to be put in but is yet to be entered into the application. Right
now all this does is have the menu setup working on getting the rest of the
print("Tunneling version v0.1")
print("How Deep of a Tunnel Do you want?")
deep = read()
print("How Tall of a Tunnel do you want?")
tall = read()
print("How far out on the left do you want?")
left = read()
print("How far out on the right do you want?")
right = read()
a = deep
b = tall
c = left
d = right
print("I will dig "..deep.." blocks in")
print("I will dig "..tall.." blocks high")
print("I will dig "..left.." blocks to the left")
print("I will dig "..right.." blocks to the right")
