Sonic Screwdriver Crafting and Repairs by TimeLord015
As of TARDIS Mod 0.1.0b the Sonic Screwdriver crafting recipe isn't very difficult or requires very little adventure, so here is my idea.
To craft a sonic screwdriver you will first need to craft 4 "sub-items":
Sonic Emitter - The Head/Beacon of the sonic
Sonic Oscillator - The Frequency Generator of the device (Pitch change operates different features[eg, High pitch = Opening Doors, Low Pitch = doing a short range scan for mobs/items/etc])
Sonic Frequency Modulator - Allows the user to adjust the frequency of the device. If this circuit is removed or damaged the frequency will fluctuate randomly until the circuit is replaced
Trionic Power cell - This is what powers the device
Crafting these circuits.
The Sonic emitter will require an exotronic circuit [E], 1 diamond [D], a redstone torch[R] and 3 nether quartz.[Q]arranged in the grid like so
0 = Blank Space
0 D 0
R E 0
Q Q Q
The function of this circuit is to extend the range of the device [maximum being 12 blocks]. Whilst the device is being used the the durability of the circuit will deplete, as will the range of the sonic. The range will only deplete to a minimum of 3 Blocks as the sonic will still be usable if all other circuits are operational.
This circuit will require a redstone comparator [C], an observer [O], a diamond [D], and 2 redstone dust [U] in this arrangement
0 D 0
0 O 0
U O U
This is simply the circuit that allows the device to function. On destruction of this circuit the device will no longer be operable and the circuit will have to be replaced.
Sonic Frequency Modulator:
Crafted with 1 iron [I], 1 lever [L], 2 redstone repeaters [P] and a exotronic circuit [E] in this arrangement:
0 I 0
0 L 0
P E P
This circuit allows the user to select which frequency they want the device to operate at to complete the different functions(Player/TARDIS scanning, Tnt activation, Door Locking.Unlocking, Lamp Activation, Redstone Activation and anything else i missed). As this circuit depletes the frequency will randomly change over allocated amounts of time, the lower the durability the quicker it changes, when it reaches 15-10 the sonic will become completely unusable as the circuits frequency flickers once every 2-4 seconds.
Please remember this is just a suggestion. As much as it is something I feel both me and the other players will enjoy, you are entitled to your own opinion as am I and I will not judge if you do not like this suggestion. If you do like this suggestion however don't forget to up-vote it so we can see it in the mod.
