Lightbulb Modified Poster boards request
After seeing that the poster boards in Protech blocks (LCD Screen) I know they can be modified by modders. I thought it would be a cool idea to modify it so a poster board can accept multiple picture links and set a duration between each link so you can make something almost like a low framerate gif. It would make my ship's bridge very lively because I use them as fake display units.

RE: Modified Poster boards request
With the ProtecTech Industries's plugins tools you have a modded version of the poster holder (the one in the 'Decoration' tab).
The image can be changed using the Lua function: SetUrlToPosterHolding(String PosterHolderName, String UrlToSet).

If your Lua program is set to change the image each second, then you'll have a low framerate video.


Note that I haven't tested that feature very well, so don't hesitate to report any bug you may encounter.

RE: Modified Poster boards request
I'm not at all familiar with LUA. What would be the string for changing screens and its duration?
