After fumbling with the doors, I came up with this idea, as I thought that this may benefit those who are building modern buildings, and you can also look through the glass.

First off, like the current doors, there is an iron version, and a wood version.

Recipe:

:GoldBar:  :|:  :GoldBar:
:Diamond:  :|:  :Diamond:
:DORE:  :|:  :DORE:

AND

:Glass:  :Iron:  :Glass:
:Glass:  :Iron:  :Glass:
:Glass:  :Iron:  :Glass:

The door itself will take up to spaces, and will rotate from the middle. They will be free-moving. However, if you put an electricity current near it (switch or redstone torch under it), it will lock up and automatically revert back to 180 degrees.

Quick answers:

Q:Can mobs push the door?
A: Yes, but not if it's locked.

Q: What happens if you hit the door?
A: It will swing. To destroy it, repeatedly hit the hinge.

Q: Drops?
A: The double doors.

Q: What happens if I build something that's in its path?
A: You can't build in it's neutral form (180 degrees), but anything in the actual path will stop the door.

Design basis (But with 2 panes, not 4) :

Honestly I have never seen a wooden revolving door.

Lol, making it easier for Minecraft-ers. You should know how many people make wooden houses. I guess that's why I also suggested an iron one :3

Either way, I agree with Qwertyz. This is a wonderful idea. I think it would be more convenient to get through as well.

Good sir, I award you with one Notch.  :SSSS:

I do believe it is possible,but very hard to code how anything can stop it,and how you could push it...


I suggest lock mechanisms that use Redstone to drop a sand or a gravel block under it so it locks

In theory it sounds nice, but if anything, I think revolving doors in-game would be more cumbersome than regular doors.

A door is simply Open -> Enter. I suppose the only hitch is having to close it later, requiring you to turn around and that gets annoying. This is an advantage to a revolving door, no worrying about closing it!

On the other hand, a revolving door would have to be quite wide to comfortably navigate through. There's also the potential of getting stuck; what if multiple people try using it? As long as there's a lock function, the revolving door would be very abusable; others could lock people inside one of the door segments. As well, I think network latency and load on MP servers would make it hard for the door to operate smoothly; choppy rotation (cumbersome).

I predict a lot of problems arising if this were to be implemented into the game.

What about an automatically opening and closing gate?

It's perfect for making a hotel. Now, is there any way to make them keep spinning like how the doors can keep opening and closing?

The solution, I believe, is quite simple. Right-clicking on the door will open it up just a crack- and then you push your way through one of the sides. Once the door has done a complete 180 degree turn it "locks" again.

The only thing that will cause a door to become "unlocked" is a player right clicking on the door or a Redstone Wire... logic gate... thing. :]

Excellent idea! :iapprove:

2x2, two blocks wide, two blocks high, as mentioned in the first post.

The 'lock' function puts the door automatically back at 180 degrees (horizontal), so a player can't get trapped.

Two pressure plates on both sides of a door?

It could work that way, 2 blocks wide, but unless the door was aligned at a 180 degree angle I still think it would be hard to smoothly pass through the door.

I see, so even if a person would be in the middle of navigating through the door, locking it would just push them through rather than trap them?

Hm, yeah - you got me there.

I'm skeptical, but to be fair, if I heard from a developer that this could work I'd be more in favor of it. You have interesting idea!

Also, you can't be locked in, because the revolving door would only have 2 panes of glass, to make it easier to both program and use.

Ah! I was thinking of a two pane as well, I assumed you had a 4 pane in mind. Yeah, that'd would definitely ease things up.

I think its a good idea just it might be quit buggy at first and one suggestion what if you could freely move the wooden one but the iron one needed a redstone current just a thought

Though I want a new type of door, not like this. This is too tech-ish for minecraft. It may be good in a modern mod, though.

It does not fit the theme of Minecraft simply because it is too modern.

Seems like a good idea, and because it's features of a revolving object, it could be used for some redstone contraptions.
Support.
