Detailed Description

Workspace for adding and routing components.

Components can be added to a Circuit via the AddComponent() method, and routed to and from other components via the ConnectOutToIn() methods.

NOTE: Each component input can only accept a single "wire" at a time. When a wire is connected to an input that already has a connected wire, that wire is replaced with the new one. One output, on the other hand, can be distributed to multiple inputs.

For process intensive circuits, multi-threaded processing can be enabled via the SetThreadCount() method (0 threads = multi-threading disabled). A circuit's thread count can be adjusted at runtime, allowing the user to increase / decrease the number of threads as required during execution.

The Circuit Tick() method runs through it's internal array of components and calls each component's Tick() and Reset() methods once. A circuit's Tick() method can be called in a loop from the main application thread, or alternatively, by calling StartAutoTick(), a separate thread will spawn, automatically calling Tick() continuously until PauseAutoTick() or StopAutoTick() is called.
