The Prison with (almost) working piston elevator
« on: November 20, 2011, 07:30:45 am »
Anyone wishing to visit, do not attempt entrance by breaking blocks, there is lots of redstone stuff.  Ill try to set up some precautions to avoid problems.
If you want entrance, its setup like a prison, only those on the inside can let people in and out, unless come from the bottom, of which is currently open, but in the future will require a button password.

Anya washed away a small amount of redstone, its not a big deal, I havnt memorized the damage and been able to fix it yet.. although I washed it away twice myself, the first time washing away my rail line heading down, which included about 20+ powered rail, 18 of which disappeared, so yes, what Anya did is NOTHING compared to what I did to myself already.
Also, I hear Anya donated some redstone.  Thanks Anya!

HELP!!

Ive looked it over about 40 times, and.. something is just not right, its not acting as it should when you place a torch at the bottom of the one particular tower as the video shows.  I did notice it acted different when I adjusted some of the redstone to reflect where the floors at.. being the top floor only at the moment.. just to get it to work.

I believe redstone was changed slightly in 1.0, that might be your problem :P

I wonder if the changes have anything to do with the dissapearing gravel at the entrance, it has happened atleast 1 more time, but on just one side.  Its always been 1 layer of gravel at the most that goes away.  I noticed when I was throwing torches on the elevator to try to get it to react in different ways, in certain spots, it will push the block, but not retract them... glitch or intentional?  Who knows.. but it could lead to other possibilities if a sticky block could act in both (technicly 3 ways, on, off stick, off no stick) ways depending

I was able to repeat what I did, and had to use a torch in a different location to get it to retract, and that worked as well.  I cant remember the exact location to push without pullback, but to get them to retract its on the outside.

Huh, that is weird. From what I have read of Notch's posts that is not supposed to happen...

We may have to wait for a fix....

It might also be a SMP error (we've definatly have not had any of those lol). I will test the elevator in single player, and in SMP (I'll set up a temp. server, real easy) and see if that's it.

I used this mod... http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/333322-100-worlddownloader/

It only saves the chunks that are loaded. (If this is what you meant).

I was going to get a save file with the elevator completely made, as it was before 1.0.0 to see if the design still works as intended.

Haha, yea the redstone changes stink... we should wait until folks figure out a way around them problems. We will probably have to remake the elevator, hopefully not, but you never know.

Also, its fine, go ahead and play your Skyrim :D  I have not been on the server much lately myself, so it is no problem. Just tell when your through with that and we can probably pick up where we left off. A break is good once in a while :D
