A logic gate is a block in Minecraft that is used to manipulate redstone signals to do many useful things. They play a major role in most redstone circuits. Repeaters and comparators are good examples of logic gates that is already in Minecraft. Gates added by ProjectRed tend to be a lot more useful and flexible.
A logic gate's purpose is to manipulate redstone signals. They can connect to redstone dust, red alloy wires, or bundled cables. Logic gates need to be placed on a solid block face. If the attached block is removed, gates will fall to the ground, much like torches. All gates can be rotated about its face by right-clicking it with a screwdriver. Some gates also have configurable options, which are accessible by a shift-right-click with a screwdriver. Gates are multiparts, created inside of Chickenbone's Forge Multipart API. This means that if the another type of part is small enough, it can be placed inside the same block space as the gate.
Inputs and outputs
Each gate can have up to 4 inputs and 4 outputs. The connections can be one of several types:
Analog IOs can also connect to any source of redstone power, but is also capable of sensing and emitting a signal of a specific analog strength (0 - 15).
Bundled IOs will only connect to a bundled cable or another device capable of accepting bundled signal.
Along with the type of connection, each gate also has a designated side of input or output. These sides are assigned with a number of 0 to 3. 0 is the side that faces away from you when you place the gate on the ground. As you move clockwise around the gate, the number increases. For example, if you are facing north when you place a gate, the side that faces north is 0, east is 1, south is 2, and west is 3.
