Sensors   [ edit page ]



Environment

Player Sensor
Player Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): Number of players detected
  • Output 2 (On/Off): if at least one player is detected

Types:

  • Sphere (Trigger is a ball around the sensor)
  • Hemisphere (is half of a ball = just in the front)

Mode:

  • Detect All
  • Detect Players
  • Detect NPCs

Radius:

  • Minimum 0.25m (1 block)
  • Maximum 10m (40 blocks)
Wind Sensor
Wind Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): Relative direction of the wind
  • Output 2 (Number): Relative speed of the wind (in m/s)
Rain Sensor
Rain Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): How intense its raining (0 - Sunny, 1 - Thunderstorm)
Humidity Sensor
Humidity Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): Humidity (0 - No fog, 1 - Max fog)
Temperature Sensor
Temperature Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): Ambient room temperature in °C


Position of Vehicle relative to the world

Tilt Sensor
Tilt Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): The "angle" of tilt. 0.25 is +90 degree, -0.25 is -90 degree. Zero is defined by the direction of the block (blue arrow when placing).
Physics Sensor
Linear Speed Sensor
 
  • The physics sensor component combines functionality of several other sensors into a single block. The sensor outputs position, rotation, linear and angular speeds over 14 composite channels detailed on the component, where the red arrow is the X-axis, the green arrow is the Y-axis, and the blue arrow is the Z-axis.

The composite output is:

  • Output 1 to 3 (Number): X, Y and Z position of the block
  • Output 4 to 6 (Number): Euler rotation X, Y and Z of the block
  • Output 7 to 9 (Number): Linear velocity X, Y and Z of the block
  • Output 10 to 12 (Number): Angular velocity X, Y and Z of the block
  • Output 13 (Number): Absolute linear velocity of the block
  • Output 14 (Number): Absolute angular velocity of the block
  • Output 15 (Number): Local Z tilt (pitch)
  • Output 16 (Number): Local X tilt (roll)
  • Output 17 (Number): Compass heading (-0.5 to 0.5)
Note that modifying physics sensor in xml to make it invisible disturb output 17.
Linear Speed Sensor
Linear Speed Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): Speed in m/s.

There are different modes:

  • Absolute: The speed without caring about direction.
  • Horizontal: The horizontal speed.
  • Vertical: The vertical speed.
  • Directional: The speed in the axis of the sensor. This is the only mode in which the orientation of the sensor matters.
Distance Sensor
Distance Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): Distance to the next block (in the direction of blue arrow when placing). Max range: 500m
  • when nothing is detected, it will output 500m.
Laser Distance Sensor
Laser Distance Sensor
 
  • Similar to distance sensor, but has a higher max range (4000m).
  • when nothing is detected, it will output 4000m.
  • also shows a cool laser beam when active
Removing width in xml causes laser beam to disappear (only point is visible)
Laser Point Sensor
Laser Point Sensor
 
  • can detect laser beacons and tell you in which direction the laser beacon is.
Laser Beacon
Laser Beacon
  Needed for the Laser Point Sensor.
Compass Sensor
Compass Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): your direction relative to the north
Altimeter
Altimeter
 
  • Output 1 (Number): the height relative to the sea level in meters.
GPS
GPS
 
  • Output 1 (Number): the x coordinate.
  • Output 2 (Number): the y coordinate.


Mechanical

Torque Meter
Torque Meter
 
  • Output 1 (Number): the RPS (rotations per second).
  • Output 2 (Number): the force.


Radar/Sonar

Radar
Sonar
 
  • Can detect vehicles and persons in a radius around it, only above water.
Radar Large
Radar Large
 
  • Can detect vehicles and persons in a radius around it, only above water.
Radar Huge
Radar Huge
 
  • Can detect vehicles and persons in a radius around it, only above water.
Radar Dish
Radar Dish
 
  • Can detect vehicles and persons in a radius around it, only above water.
Sonar
Radar
 
  • Can detect vehicles and persons in a radius around it, only underwater.


Fluid

Fluid Pressure Sensor
Fluid Pressure Sensor
 
  • Output 1 (Number): the pressure.
Fluid Meter
Fluid Meter
 
  • Output 1 (Number): the capacity of the surrounding room.
  • Output 2 (Number): the amount of fluid in the surrounding room in liters.


Other

Clock
Clock
 
  • Output 1 (Number): the current time (0 = 12am, 0.5 = 12pm)
