Mesecons Laboratory

Adventures in digital circuitry.

Welcome to the Mesecons Laboratory!

Here you'll find various articles on the Mesecons mod for Minetest.

The primary subject is the design and construction of larger or more advanced machines, a topic not very well covered elsewhere. For a simpler introduction to Mesecons, see the main site linked above.

This site has a Minetest forum topic too! Additionally, the source code is available at the GitHub repository.

All articles assume basic knowlege of how Mesecons work, and some may also assume some proficiency in the Lua programming language.

For more Mesecons madness, check out Nore's new site, Basic Mesecons!
