Please make a Piston Thing that moves Blocks forth, but itself back when it's done

I'm gonna make pistons as soon as i can get the orientation of a block from the lua api.
For now, sticky movestones are also very powerful.

Question, what is a drawtype?

A drawtype is the way how nodes (blocks/items...) are rendered by the client. Let me explain:
Stone is normal, it is a normal block. So its the standard drawtype.
Rails aren't, they dont look like a block, but like something that is put on the ground,
so they have their own drawtype: "raillike"
Other drawtypes are "plantlike", "torchlike" or "fencelike".

Jeija

Pistons
Download here
There is no animation for them yet.
You can craft them like pistons in minecraft, you just have to replace redstone by mesecons and slime balls by glue.
They push/pull (only the sticky ones) blocks in the opposite direction the signal comes from.
Sticky pistons need a mesecon conductor (energy sources can't just be placed next to them)
Do you want me to add them to the jeija mod and animate them?
Or is it too minecraft-like?
Tell me your opinion and post your creations!

Cheers,
Jeija

Modified ironzorg's hatches so that you can control them using mesecons (just 2 lines of code).
Download as .tar.gz

Expect to see a new mesecon mod version soon!

I just realized that pressure plates are possble in the very new minetest version...
(Although CPU would be quite high for them I suppose)
Im not sure if I'm gonna make pressure plates or nearrange-detection-sensors, maybe both.
They will be added in the 0.31 update, because 0.3 is already packaged...
Thanks to remind me!

The main problem of pistons is they pull all the blocks, not one. If I want to make a piston 'door' that looks like:

XOXP
XOXP

(opened)

XXPP
XXPP

(closed)
If will pull the left wall when I try to open and I get:

OXXP
OXXP

ooh, you see, I never played MineCraft before ^^. I didn't know that sticky pistons only pull back 1 block. But that should be a lot easier than the code that the piston uses right now. I'm gonna update this and release the fix in version 0.31.

@Melkor: You have to install the VERY NEW version of minetest, published at the 28th of December. This version can only be compiled from the sources. With that version, it should work, because it adds a feature that piston uses.
Please tell me, if that was the bug.

Cheers,
Jeija
