Correlated Potentialistics Mod 1.10.2 adds a storage system based around digitizing items, allowing you to store tons of items in a small space that are conveniently accessible, through a single scrollable/searchable GUI. Correlated Potentialistics is a minimalistic Applied Energistics like mod for Minecraft.
The Controller manages a network and all it’s members, and is responsible for keeping track of all present drive bays and their contained drives, as well as delegating requests to add and remove items to the correct drives. As such, it is required that a network have a controller. Unlike AE2, this mod does not have ad-hoc networks.
On it’s own, a Controller uses 32 RF/t. Each member of a network also consumes RF, but does this by simply increasing the consumption rate for the controller itself.
A Controller decides which drive to send items to based on both it’s distance from the controller and the drive’s priority. At the drive bay level, the top-left drive is checked first, then the rest are checked left-to-right top-to-bottom, like shown:
Drive bays closest to the controller are checked first, as a consequence of how the controller scans the network. Higher priority drives are checked before lower priority ones.
In addition, the export slots of interfaces will be scanned for items to be taken out. Items will never be added to an interface, unless the interfaces is configured to pull items.
Controllers scan in an expanding diamond around them, stopping when they hit a block that is not a member of the network. An illustrated example:
- The controller itself.
- Every block touching a face of the controller.
- Every block touching the face of a network member found in step 2.
- Every block touching the face of a network member found in step 3.
Here’s an illustration, showing the basic shape of the scanning:
That is to say, the controller scan order ends up assigning the manhattan distance from the controller to the network member as it’s index for prioritization.
A controller will stop and error out if it ever tries to scan more than 100 blocks. This is to prevent extremely large networks from crashing and/or lagging the server. Note that our examples here are 2D, while the Minecraft world is 3D. This means that rather than 3 worst-case extra scans on ending blocks, you have 5 worst-case extra scans. These extra scans are counted in the 100 limit. You can have a network with way less than 100 members still error for being too big due to this. As such, large flat planes are an inefficient way of building a network, and it’s better to do other things such as putting drive bays back-to-back.
Note that the Drive Bay is simply a holder for drives. The Controller does all the heavy lifting, and if you want to read about priority and ordering logic, you will want to go to that page.
The Drive Bay is an essential part of any network, allowing you to expose the storage of Drives to the system. It will hold up to 8 drives, and consumes 8 RF/t on it’s own.
The Drive Bay also offers a convenient at-a-glance view of all the drives in your system and their current status. The colored light on the front of each drive will fade from green to red as the drive fills. (Void Drives will simply pulse between shades of purple.) In addition, if a drive is named on an anvil, you can look at it while it’s mounted in the drive bay to show its name.
The Drive Bay does not have a GUI, and as such, the way to insert drives is to hold the drive and right-click on an empty slot on the Drive Bay’s front face. You can do the same to a filled slot while holding anything to take the drive out.
