Scripting language for IC10 housings / chips[edit]
MIPS is Stationeers' inspiration for the ingame scripting language called IC10. It runs on IC10 chips crafted at the Electronics Printer.
Registers[edit]
Internal registers r?: The IC contains 16 CPU registers, numbered r0 to r15. From now on referred to as r?.
Device registers d? logicType: Device registers are written to and from the IC. A device register is numbered d0 to d5 (select via screw), or db (connected device). From now on referred to as d?.
Logic and algorithmic with Internal registers[edit]
All calculations are exclusively performed to and from r? registers, or generally more understood as variables in programming. You can use aliases to give convenient names with the alias string r?d?
command (see below).
Internal registers can be manipulated in various ways.
 Write constant values
move r? (r?num)
: Example:move r0 2
sets r0 to the number 2.  Calculate: Calculations are done to and from these registers, like
add r? a(r?num) b(r?num)
. Example:add r1 r0 3
adds 3 to r0, and writes to r1.
Note, for any kind of if statements or loop behaviours, knowing about labels, branching, and jumps is essential knowledge. See below.
IO to Device registers[edit]
Acronym d? stands for device, where ? is a number corresponding to the screw device selector on the socket. You can also read/write to the device where the IC is planted in using device db.
Generally, there are up to 6 devices which can be set using the screwdriver d0 to d5. A special device register db is the device wherever the IC is mounted upon. Very convenient for atmospheric devices where no separate IC socket is required.
Note, the IC is completely unaware where d? is actually connected to. So if you get a logicType error, check d? number, or check if the screw has been set opn the socket. An alias is only convenient to convey what is expected to be set on the d? screw, it does not actually set or program the screq.
 Read from device (load)
l r? d? logicType
: Reads logicType, like Pressure from a gas sensor, from device d? to register r?. Values can be read from connected devices and put into the register using the l (load) command. For example, if you want to load the state of a door.
Example:l r0 Door Open
reads the 'Open' field of an object named 'Door', that would be connected to the IC housing of the chip.  Write to a device (set)
s d? logicType r?
: Write a value from a register back to a device using the commands d? logicType r?
. For example, if d0 is set to a door using the screwdriver,s d0 Open 0
sets the 'Open' status of the d0 (a door) to 0, effectively closing the door.
batch IO to  Device registers[edit]
Batch writing needs to be done to a specific deviceHash instead of d?. Is unique per device type, which you can find in the Stationpedia entries.

lb r? deviceHash logicType batchMode

sb deviceHash logicType r?
Additionally, using the following batch commands, a nameHash can be provided to only modify devices with a certain name.

lbn r? deviceHash nameHash logicType batchMode

sbn deviceHash nameHash logicType r?
batchMode is a parameter equal to 0, 1, 2, or 3. These are also defined as the constants Average, Sum, Minimum, and Maximum respectively. The word or number can be used.
Combining one of these functions with the HASH()
function can be advantageous:
lbn r0 HASH("StructureGasSensor") HASH("Sensor 1") Temperature Average
This code will load the average temperature of all gas sensors on the network named "Sensor 1" onto register r0
If the batch read (lb/lbn) is done on a network without any matching devices the results will be as specified in the table:
Batch Mode  Result 

Average (0)  nan 
Sum (1)  0 
Minimum (2)  0 
Maximum (3)  ninf 
Examples[edit]
Here are some examples demonstrating all three operations:
move r0 10
Sets register r0 to the value 10
move r0 r1
Copies the value of register r1 to register r0
l r0 d0 Temperature
Reads the Temperature parameter from device d0 and places the value in register r0.
Note: not all devices have a Temperature parameter, check the ingame stationpedia.
To set a device specific value (like On), you can write into this value.
s d0 On r0
Writes the value from register r0 out to On parameter of device d0. In this example the device will be turned On, if valve of register r0 equals 1, otherwise (register r0 equals 0) it will turned off. See section Device Variables.
It's recommended to use labels (like: someVariable) instead of a direct reference to the register. See alias in section Instructions.
Special registers[edit]
There are two more registers. One called ra (return address) and one called sp (stack pointer). The ra is used by certain jump and branching instructions (those ending with al) to remember which line in the script it should return to. The sp tracks the next index within the stack (a memory that can store up to 512 values) to be pushed (written) to or popped (read) from. Neither ra or sp is protected, their values can be changed by instructions like any other register.
Stack Memory[edit]
 push r?
 adds the value r? and increments the sp by 1.
 pop r?
 loads the value in the stack memory at index
sp1
into register r? and decrements the sp by 1.  peek r?
 loads the value in the stack memory at index
sp1
into register r?.  get r? d? address(r?num)
 loads the value in the stack memory at index
address
on provided device into register r?.  getd r? id(r?num) address(r?num)
 loads the value in the stack memory at index
address
on provided device id into register r?.  put d? address(r?num) value(r?num)
 adds the value to the stack memory off the provided device at index
address
.  putd id(r?num) address(r?num) value(r?num)
 adds the value to the stack memory off the provided device id at index
address
.
As mentioned previously, sp can be both written to and read from any time. When reading (peek or pop), sp must be between 1 and 512, inclusive. While writing (push), sp must be between 0 and 511, inclusive.
Stack memory is persistent on logic chips. This means that if you have a logic chip and push values to the stack, the code that pushes those values can be removed and the stack will retain those values.
Note that this does not carry over to any other logic chips which receive the program of the original; They will need to have their stack memories programmed individually.
Stack Traversing
Traversing the stack can be done similarly to how an array would be traversed in some other languages:
#this will traverse indices {min value} through {max value}1 move sp {min value} loop: add sp sp 1 peek r0 #do something here with your stack values (loaded into r0) blt sp {max value} loop #continue on
Alternatively, you can use the pop function's decrementing to make a more efficient loop:
move sp {max value} add sp sp 1 loop: pop r0 #do something here with your stack values (loaded into r0) bgt sp {min value} loop #continue on
Device Ports[edit]
ICs can interact with up to 6 other devices via d0  d5, as well as the device it's attached to via db. To change or set a device, use a screwdriver and adjust the device in the IC housing. You can read or set any of the device's properties, so it is possible to do things like read the pressure or oxygen content of a room on the same Device port.
Additionally, is possible to set other IC housings as devices, allowing you to create programs that run across multiple ICs together. For example, an Gas Mixing IC could check the Setting field of a Atmosphere Sensor IC and act based on the value of the sensor chip.
The l (load) or s (set) instructions you have to read or set these values to your device. Examples:
#Reads the 'Temperature' from an atmosphere sensor # at device port 'd0' into register 'r0'. l r0 d0 Temperature
# Writes the value of the register 'r0' to the # device on port 'd1' into the variable 'Setting'. s d1 Setting r0
Labels[edit]
Labels are used to make it easier to jump between lines in the script. The label will have a numerical value that is the same as its line number. Even though it's possible to use a labels value for calculations, doing so is a bad idea since any changes to the code can change the line numbers of the labels.
main: # define a jump mark with label 'main' j main # jumps back to 'main'
Constants[edit]
Instead of using a register to store a fixed value, a constant can be made. Using this name will refer to the assigned value. With the help of Constants you can save register places.
# defines a Constant with name 'pi' # and set its value to 3.14159 define pi 3.14159
You can use these constants like any other variables (see: alias in section Instructions). Example:
# set the value of register 'r0' to the value of constant named 'pi'. move r0 pi
Numeric values[edit]
Registers and constants are usually decimal values using doubleprecision floating point (confirmed?).
Unlike real CPU architectures, integers are not supported as a distinct type, but double FP can represent integers up to about 54 bits before rounding causes problems (the exact number depending what bit patterns you happen to have).
Numbers can be written in hexadecimal by preceding the value with a $ symbol. Values larger than 54 bits might get corrupted. Hex numbers are typically used for ReferenceId values.
Examples:
move r0 12345 move r1 123.456 move r2 $E1B2
Indirect referencing[edit]
This is a way of accessing a register by using another register as a pointer. Adding an additional r in front of the register turns on this behaviour. The value stored in the register being used as the pointer must be between 0 to 15, this will then point to a register from r0 to r15, higher or lower values will cause an error.
move r0 5 # stores the value 5 in r0 move rr0 10 # is now the same as 'move r5 10' # since r0 has the value 5, rr0 points at the register r5
Additional r's can be added to do indirect referencing multiple times in a row.
move r1 2 move r2 3 move rrr1 4 # is now the same as 'move r3 4' # since r1 points at r2 which points at r3
This also works with devices
move r0 2 # stores the value 2 in r0 s dr0 On 1 # is now the same as 's d2 On 1' # r0 has the value 2 so dr0 points at d2
Network Referencing / Channels[edit]
All cable networks have 8 Channels which can have data loaded from/stored to via a device and connection reference. Connections for each supported device are listed in the stationpedia. All 'connections' a device can make are a connection (pipe, chute, cable), but only cable networks have channels.
The 8 channels (Channel0 to Channel7) are however volatile, in that data is destroyed if any part of the cable network is changed, removed, or added to, and also whenever the world is exited. All these channels default to NaN. Strictly speaking, they default to what we would call "quiet NaN", in that its not an error it simply means its not a number yet. Recommend you use these channels for reading and writing between networks, rather than as a data store. This effectively means an IC can read all the networks for all devices to connected to it, so not just their own local network, but any networks any device they can reference is connected to.
# d0 is device zero, and the :0 refers # to that device's 0 connection l r0 d0:0 Channel0
For example: on an IC Housing, the 0 connection is the data port and 1 is power, so you could write out r0 to Channel0 of the power network of the Housing using s db:1 Channel0 r0
Comments[edit]
Comments can be placed using a # symbol. All comments are ignored by the game when it reads commands. Below is an example of valid code with two comments.
alias MyAlias r0 # Text after the hash tag will be ignored to the end of the line. # You can also write comments on their own lines, like this.
Debugging advices[edit]
The value stored in a register or variable can easily be displayed by writing it to the Setting parameter of the IC housing. This has no side effects. To see the value, just stand close to the IC housing and look directly at the housing.
s db Setting r0
. # sets/writes the value of register r0 into the parameter Setting of the IC Housing(db)
To check if a certain block of code is executed, use the above trick but with a random number that you choose, like the line number.
This example will display the number 137 on the IC housing.
s db Setting 137
# sets/writes the number 137 into the parameter Setting of the IC Housing(db)
Always use unique names for labels. When a label is named after a IC10 keyword like "Temperature:" or "Setting:" the original meaning of the keyword is overwritten, so when an instruction tries to use it an error will occur.
A configuration cartridge installed in a tablet can be used to see all available values and configuration parameter for all devices you focus on.
Learning IC10[edit]
IC10 can be difficult to get started with. So here is a list of instructions that are useful for beginners. These can be used to write many different scripts.
General:

alias
make the script easier to read by assigning a name to a register or device, example:alias rTemperature r15

label:
where "label" can be replaced with almost any word, jump and branch instructions can use these in place of line numbers, example:start:

yield
pause for 1tick and then resume, if not used the script will automatically pause for 1tick after 128 lines
Jumps:
j someLabelName
jump to line with someLabelNamejal someLabelName
stores the next line number into the register ra (return address) and then jump to someLabelNamej ra
jump to register ra (return address)
Branching (jumpif):
beq a(r?num) b(r?num) c(r?num)
if a is equal to b goto c (label or linenumber)
bne a(r?num) b(r?num) c(r?num)
if a notequal b goto c (label or linenumber)
bgt a(r?num) b(r?num) c(r?num)
if a greater than b goto c (label or linenumber)
blt a(r?num) b(r?num) c(r?num)
if a less than b goto c (label or linenumber)
The suffix al can be added to each of these (example: beqal) to save the next line number into the "return address" register. this is called using j ra
Device interactions:
l (load) lb (load batch, requires one of the following: 0(Average) / 1(Sum) / 2(Minimum) / 3(Maximum)) ls (load slot) s (store) sb (store batch)
Logic and Math:
seqz (common NOTgate: turns 0 into 1, and all other values into 0) move add (addition) sub (subtraction) mul (multiplication) div (division)
Common device variables:
On (1 is on, 0 is off) Open (1 is open, 0 is closed) Setting (meaning varies between devices, example: a LED display(console) will show this value) Activate (1 usually means running, example: a Daylight sensor is 1 when the sun shines on it) Temperature (in Kelvin, Celsius  273.15) Pressure (in kPa)
Notes:
All instructions and variables can be seen ingame in the IC editor window by clicking the "f", "x" and "s(x)" buttons on the top right.
The stationpedia is the best source to see which variables are available to each device.
Most scripts are loops, they end with a jump instruction that leads back up to the start. Otherwise they will just run once and then stop.
Two practice scripts:
Automatic Night Light: Load "Activate" from a Daylight sensor, flip the value with a NOTgate, store the value to the "On" variable of one or more lights.
Automatic Wall Cooler: Read "Temperature" from a Gas Sensor. Branch if the value is greater than X, turn on the cooler. Branch if the value is less than Y, turn off the cooler. (Wall coolers need a minimum of 12.5 kPa pressure in the connected pipe)
Accessing devices via batch or ReferenceId[edit]
The IC housing has 6 pins you can use to configure the devices it uses. This provides flexibility to let the installer configure which devices will be controlled by the IC.
Alternatives for accessing devices include the batch load/store and the ReferenceId load/store instructions.
# get the average charge ratio across station batteries lb r0 HASH("StructureBattery") Ratio Average
# get the ReferenceId for the sorter named "Sorter Corn" lbn r1 HASH("StructureLogicSorter") HASH("Sorter Corn") ReferenceId Maximum ble r1 ninf ra #use the ReferenceId to set that sorter's mode. sd r1 Mode 1
Using the 6 configuration pins makes it easy to write reusable MIPS
scripts where the installer uses the pins to select the devices that
will be managed.
Using batchname instructions frees you from the hassle of adjusting the pins, but requires you to name the devices via the Labeller. It can also allow you to control more than 6 devices.
Batch instructions[edit]
The batch instructions can address multiple devices only via their PrefabHash generated from the prefab name using the `HASH("Name")` macro or copied directly from the Stationpedia. A prefab hash is always an integer. All devices that can be read with logic contain the logic value PrefabHash and NameHash.
See Batched instructions for a comprehensive list of all batch instructions.
sb, sbn, sbs, (no sbns)
lb, lbs, lbn, lbns
Direct reference instructions[edit]
Direct reference instructions can address a specific device via its ReferenceId.
clrd, getd, putd,
ld, sd, (no slot access via reference ID)

All b
commands require target line as last argument, all s
commands require register to store result as first argument. All br
commands require number to jump relatively as last argument. e.g. breq a b 3
means if a=b then jump to 3 lines after.
All approximate functions require additional argument denoting how close two numbers need to be considered equal. E.g.: sap r0 100 101 0.01
will consider 100 and 101 almost equal (not more than 1%=0.01 different) and will set r0 to 1. The exact formula is if abs(a  b) <= max(c * max(abs(a), abs(b)), float.epsilon * 8)
for ap
and is similar for other approximate functions.

FLT_EPSILON = 2^(−23) ≈ 1.19e−07; float (32 bit) DBL_EPSILON = 2^(−52) ≈ 2.20e−16; double (64 bit)

Examples[edit]

Harvie automation[edit]
This script uses the batch instruction sb ...
to control all Harvie devices on the network. But only one Harvie and one Tray will be the master and have their values read, the rest of the Harvies will repeat exactly what this unit does. Some problems with this design is that different types of crops mature at different speeds, and if seeds were manually planted and the master unit recieved the first seed, the harvesting action will be performed too early on all the other plants since they are growing a few seconds slower.

Example experiment: how many lines of code are executed each tick?[edit]
To determine this, a script without yield
will be used. It should have as few lines as possible (so no labels are used, but a reset value at the top will be needed) and count the number of lines, the IC Housing will be used to display the result.
move r0 1 #the first line has number 0 add r0 r0 3 s db Setting r0 j 1
Result (the numbers appears every 0.5 seconds):
127
256 (+129)
385 (+129)
511 (+126)
640 (+129)
769 (+129)
895 (+126)
1024 (+129)
1153 (+129)
There is a repeating +129, +129, +126 sequence, a hint that the real value is 128. Which also happens to be the number of lines in a script, which makes sense. A variation of this experiment will show that empty rows are also counted towards this number.
