« on: July 03, 2010, 10:27:31 pm »

Has anyone else seen this?
This is even more insane than what people do using Wire on Garry's Mod.

I wasn't quite expecting someone to make a working calculator though... that seems insane even for DF.

It gives me hope for the human race that people are out there achieving these feats - and that hope is instantly dashed when I realize these people are probably going to channel all that intellect into DF alone

That is the best calculator in DF that I've ever seen. The graphical display is just amazing, had no idea they were even possible in DF. But Dwarven Science prevails once again.

That is indeed insane, the translation to decimal is impressive, I didn't think it was possible.

I'd like to imagine that he built this without turning off the invasions or otherwise modifying the game.
