Signum Entia is a block added by the Automagy 1 mod. This device is a detector of entities, which will emit a redstone signal based on how many entities of a certain type are in its range. The type of entities scanned by this device can be set by the Oculo Anima inserted in its GUI. The area it scanns mobs in is 11x11x11 and can be located differently depending on the blocks next to the machine. If no blocks is next to the machine, it will be centered on the machine. If one block is next, the area will move so the machine is on the center of its side. Adding more blocks result in more precise area change.
Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
Research aspects in this block
"A method of counting creatures and other entities in an area would be useful for many things, and a crystalline brain fortified with Terra - with its affinity to both Life magic and the building blocks of the corporeal - makes the perfect candidate for the job.
This device will emit a redstone signal (both directly and by comparator) when entities of a certain type are found in its range. The more there are, the stronger the signal. (Redcrystal is required to receive a signal strength over 15.)
You can limit the count to include only adult animals, or only children, when applicable.
The area examined by the device is determined by the blocks around it. Placing a block on one face will limit detection in that direction but boost detection in the opposite direction. Blocks on opposite faces (e.g. north and south) will prevent detection in both directions. However, glass and replaceable blocks like water are ignored, allowing scanning in their direction.
If, for example, all sides are open, then the device will be in the center of the area. If the only open sides are its top, north, and east, then the device will be in the bottom-south-western corner of the area. (In both examples, the area would be 11x11x11 blocks, which is the maximum possible size.)
To allow specification of an entity type, you have modified a crystalline eye such that it can be imprinted with a creature, spirit, or construct's signature traits. Simply right-click on the entity while holding the eye, then insert the attuned eye into the device.
The eye can also be made to watch for humans (players), either a specific individual or humans in general. Attuning it to another person is accomplished in the same manner as previously described. To focus the eye on yourself, hold shift-right-click for a couple of seconds while carrying it in your hand."
