Greetings fellow redstoners,
and welcome in my Redstone Lab!
A few month ago (more like a year now...) I started playing with redstone - without any prior knowledge in engineering or boolean algebra - and ended up with a world where were gathered the things I found, by myself or on the net.
As the map was getting more and more filled with useful contraptions, designs and components, and as some of my finds took me time, I thought people starting with redstone could beneficiate from this.
Hence this topic.
If you have beginner to medium level in redstone, high are the odds that this will help you.
World save. Latest version of the lab. ( Last update: September, 11, 2012.)
My Youtube channel. Give it some love!
What's in there? The map is divided in 4 parts:
> First part teaches redstone facts and displays the logic gates and latches.
- How redstone works.
- Specifications of components.
- How power travels.
- What are weak and strong powering.
- Transparent blocks, their features and uses.
- Tripwires and pistons caracteristics.
- An introduction to delays.
- Why and how Block updates detectors work.
- A wide range of designs for most of the logic gates and latches.
> Second part countains the components that you have to make.
- Lots of 1-tick pulsers. Rising and dual edges mainly.
- Clocks of all kinds.
- many ABBAs designs.
- Small timers/long clocks.
- Two-ways repeaters.
> Third part gathers full devices, or more complex concepts.
- Least common denominator timer.
- Four states wirings.
- 3x3 button grid.
- Simple AND lock.
- Multiple inputs-to-outputs through only one wire designs of mine.
- Mono and bi-directional ring counters.
- Three different bi-directional unary counters, with unary to decimal convertors.
- An introduction to binary with a simple counter as exemple.
- A more complex binary counter that has numerous and interesting features.
> Fourth and last part shows doors and traps.
- Simple 2x2 and 2x3 piston doors.
- How to do very high 2-wide doors. Hidden or not.
- A very classy 2x2 glass door.
- 3x3 and 4x4 doors of mine.
- Another very small and fast 4x4.
- 2x2 and 2x3 Jeb/hidden doors.
- 2x2 Jeb trap.
- 3x3 traps by me.
- A 2x2 "nothing above ground" design of mine.
Iron are basic or widely-known things.
Emerald are the logic gates and latches.
Gold are things made or reworked by me.
Diamonds are devices created by specific individuals, credit is given to them.
And lastly, If confused or lost, follow the lapis blocks!
Suggestions and questions welcomed.
Enjoy, use, spread, and give credits.
/!\ Disclamer: Please take note that this is not a "Giant computers collection" nor an "Everything about redstone ever gallery" world. TaviRiders, MCAddict, the RDF, The ultimate collection of redstone circuits topic, the Redstone wiki, and so on are already on that. It's more "Stuff I found specially useful and smart while learning" /!\
