Redstone?

by Weird Carrot Monster » Post

Well, I understand that minetest is still under heavy developement, but when we will see redstone and pistons? For me, it's minecraft's best feature and i want to have it in minetest.

I am working on redstone,but
- it's still a bit buggy
- you can make no and/or-gates
- there are no levers or buttons yet

I'll probably add this.
Oerkki(dies) -> Oerkki Dust(crafting/smelting) -> Redstone Dust

I would suggest, instead of calling it redstone, make the base item copper ore, and the gates/lines into copper conduit and transistors respectively. You can have the copper conduit be crafted from finished copper, and transistor blocks crafted from a combo of copper/iron/sand with the position of its constituent elements determining the resulting type of gate. This way we can differentiate minetest from minecraft better.

Not a bad idea

Ah, ok. Any particular reason you found my suggestion distasteful?

I mean with "No bad idea" your idea is not a bad idea
My English is not the best.

Oh! I see. I think I will come up with some craft template suggestions then. Also, be a bit more careful how you phrase things: "No bad Idea" and "Not a bad idea" have opposite meanings. But don't worry too much about it, just keep practicing and your English will get better.

Edit:

Ok, I am doing some research. Minecraft uses a system of torches and redstone blocks to accomplish logic circuits. Logic gates require the use of multiple block arrangements, and what things are are not apparently obvious. I'm thinking of a slightly different system, using single blocks that represent logic gates, and then would use conduit to connect the faces of these blocks, which would represent the legs of the gate. The legs have 2 necessary arrangements, a T or a 3 way elbow. The T shaped gate block requires 2 different leg configurations, and the 3 way elbow has only 1 necessary leg configuration. That means for each of the 16 types of logic gate, there will be 3 different block configurations. To make this work, the blocks will be rotatable via a wrench tool, which will rotate a block clockwise 90deg when used against a block face. This will allow the player to orientate the gate faces in whatever position/configuration the player desires.

Note that each face of these transistor blocks should be clearly labeled with the gate type and and leg type.

These logic circuits will be powered by connecting the logic circuit to a powerplant. Three possible powerplant blocks are: Solar panel block, think of one of those step blocks in minecraft with an appropriate texture,windmill/windmill tower blocks, and a steam turbine/boiler block set that can be paired with the existing furnace.

Other utility blocks after these basics have been established could be: LED torch/LED lamp block, diode blocks, capacitor blocks, other basic circuit elements.

I will sketch up some concept art later and post it

As far as power and machines go, there are these two minecraft mods called buildcraft and industrialcraft that are amazing! I hope you will consider looking into them and their content!
