Every component that you wanted to slot in would have a power requirement and a control requirement, and deduct what it needed from the available Power and Control provided by the Cores. Once you used up all of the available Power and/or Control, you couldn't slot anything else.

This could be a baby step in that direction, I admit. But I think I like this way better. A lot of room for customization and optimization, with less complexity (and headache from trying to put together a working configuration).

Makes me wonder how they'd implement Computer Cores, IF they decided to...
I have no idea what-- *reads somewhat more carefully before continuing to type *

I like it, I like it!

Can we have this? Can we have this? Please?
Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.
And I don't pretend to understand them.
