3,608 pressure plates, roughly 64,944 mechanisms to link them and 3,608, possibly 7,216 pumps.
And that's just to make it so that the display can support all the characters. I'd like to think I could scale it down a bunch but mechanically it needs to be done if I want to converse with the A.I with the display.
This display is killing me more then I thought it would. I can probably eliminate the numbers, that would cut costs by a quarter. And maybe I can cut corners with the A.I,'s display. It doesn't need the flexability the input display needs. Come to me maths.
Either way if I want to get this done i'm going to need one hell of a reactor
to power everything.
QUICKEDITZ: Maybe i'm going about it the wrong way. Right now i'm thinking about linking each pressure plate to produce an individual character on each large tile. It would make things more difficult to utilize, but maybe I could instead link each individual game tile that make up the larger tile. I don't know, just putting it out there for me to think about and remind myself later.
