      I would like to be able to toggle a rail in 3 variations/directions via 1 inner remote button on the hotbar is this possible? I have been able to do multiples of 2 using the flip-flops but odd numbers elude me*. I thought I'd seen this done in a thread but cannot find it. To be clear I'm not talking about a rail rotator blocks, I would like to toggle the orientation of a docker block arrow: Up, Down and Left. (to match various orientations of Basic rails)

      *No doubt I'll face palm when the answer is given.

      I would imagine theres a means to setup the ISR as a toggle between three states, but beyond that... \O____o/

      ...and now my brain hurts! :confused:

      Have one of the steps in an even chain just input another pulse to the flip-flop chain essentially skipping it. I think that's what I've done iirc.

      I was able to implement your suggestion Crashmaster. With a 0.5 second delay I was able to jump the fourth activation. Too bad I could not use a button to be instintanious, however I have a 3-way toggle on the hotbar! Thanks for the assistance.

      Notice that the first FlipFlop-Delay pair has to be manually turned on before you can start stepping with consequent pushes of the inner-ship remote.

      For your needs, 1=Up, 2=Down, 3=Left.

      (How do you like my hand-drawing-with-a-mouse-in-MS-Paint skills?) ;)

      Genius! I give your mouse drawing a B, the text an A+.

      Also, sorry for drawing the FlipFlop symbol flipped :rolleyes:
