Hello. Since we've got a creative server now, I though Why not do some redstone? And so I did.

The first contraption is a pitfall for corridors that are 4 blocks wide. 2014-01-11_18.05.14.png
Pull the lever, and... Everything on top is pushed down. Insert cacti / lava to suit your needs. 2014-01-11_18.05.17.png

The second thing I've made is the classic iClarion spiral door.

A gif would be needed to show it in all of its glory, but trust me. It looks cool when opened.

The last thing I made today was a nice fireplace. 2014-01-11_19.00.21.png
But pull the lever, and a hidden entrance appears! A little cliché, but still nice. 2014-01-11_19.00.26.png


And that was everything I managed to make in one day. I'd love comments and suggestions for other nice contraptions.

Love the fire place door man, was expecting it to just be a fireplace that turns on and off at first. :)

When I decided to build more today, I found that Ynefpavlov's big railroad tracks had reached my flat land! So I though, why not make riding minecarts a little easier?

And so I did. It's not very much, but it makes disembarking much more pleasant.

You ride it in, and the minecart (with you inside) falls to rest on the glass block above the lava. When you press shift to exit the minecart, you are transported to the space in front of the normal piston. The piston pushed, and you fall into the water stream. Meanwhile, a sticky piston retracts the glass, incinerating the minecart. 2014-01-24_21.21.12.png

The water stream carries the player to a nice location, and used minecarts are destroyed, leading to less minecart clustering and lag. And the redstone mechanism is really small, too!

Continuing on minecarts, I made the item loader and item unloader from Railcraft.

The item loader will hold the minecart until the hopper is empty.

Simirarly, the item unloader will hold the minecart until all the items from the chest minecart has been transferred.

The item loader could be used in industrial furnaces to spread items evenly, and the unloaders could be used to gather all the products to a chest, lowering the amount of hoppers and redstone needed.

Unfortunately the chest with a minecart can spread the items into hoppers evenly but just not in multiplayer. It annoys me to no end that I cannot mass brew potions that way. :(
