One Million Worlds Wiki


The scanner block will report the position of the closest item it has detected (player, mobile chunk or mob). By interacting with it you can select what its scanning for, here you can see it detecting the player and reporting their (relative to the scanner) location. Note its outputting a vector, many of the logic blocks work on vector data (which can make builds much smaller) but there are blocks available to split a vector out into 3 signals.
