I attached another solution to your problem, which may be easier to
extend to 80 nodes, because not much patching is involved, instead you
write a textfile with a definition of your state transitions (because
basically what you seem to long for is just that: a state machine).

The idea is to write a textfile where every line represents a certain
state of your system indicated by the line number. The content of a
line then specifies the possible transitions. 

In the example patch every state has two possible follow-up states
written as numbers. Depending on the choice of a user (0 or 1 in the
example) a new state is selected by selecting either the first or the
second follow-up state and making that the new active state.
