So, I heard you needed a badass computer to simulate massive TNT explosions in Minecraft. So I built this quick and dirty ugly POS in MCEdit:
That’s before I added the redstone wires and repeaters to detonate it. To my surprise, redstone connections fire away instantly. So as soon as I replaced the redstone diode with a redstone repeater, it stopped responding.
Which would’ve been OK as long as it took up some CPU. After all, with a 3.7GHz Phenom II X6 and 12GBs of RAM, CPU time is something I have plenty of. But it’s idling at 0%! WTF?
