@kebel871 heres the first cut. the only thing that is currently not in place is text color and background color for the item tiles. set tile is behaving oddly when i use the variables with color names in them. so, i have set the item tiles to use white on tungsten for right now. its down to 14 chunks. if/when @ady624’s provides some sort of method to stuff a list variable it will likely come down to 12 chunks.
sorry for the delay, had to attend a BBQ. cant pass up on meat and beer.
EDIT: updated the piston a bit to perform more efficiently by not drawing all the tiles, all the time - even though it takes a little more space. so went from 14 to 16 chunks.
