Automaton

This mod allows you to automate up to 8 activation groups, plus Trim/VTOL, which will allow the creation of complex systems like Custom Landing Gear, Robots, etc....

If you are using loop time, be sure it is longer than your longest AG delay. If you are using the trim and vtol on loop, set the first delay to zero, and the second delay to exactly half of loop time. This is easier to do in the xml file, due to the sloppy sliders in game.
The first delay slider sets the delay when turning on. The second delay slider sets when it turns off. With those two settings you can make it "reverse" it's order of operation.

If you are on Android, be sure the AG Start button is set to true. This will activate the part when the activation group becomes active.
This can be used to set up chains, where one button turns on another button.

    @FLYGUY101 I don't really know what to do with it, and I haven't updated it for 1.8 yet, so it may not work at all.

    @Gestour
    I still don't totally understand this mod after reading the description. How can this mod benefit me in-game?

    Probably stressful for you, having to update every mod that you made!

    @Gestour, Great Mod!, However I'm having a small problem trying to figure out the animation of my Windshield Wipers. I'm using AG2 to activate and Trim as the Input to the rotators. Wipers start and move correctly, but I can't figure out how to shut them off. Jeep here Going Postal The button is in the center of the steering wheel.

    Im not sure how to design an oscilating mechanism with pistons that won't break under stress.

    This should be a real feature to the game.

    Long awaited thing. Would be even nicer if you will be able to script it on a custom made rotators - so we dont need to use AG at all.
