Only materials I think you will need is waters, signs, and blocks of what ever type.

so it would look like...

water
sign
water
sign
water
sign
ect...

to what ever height you want.

my only issue with the sign method...is the whole ' waiting for approval' message when you don't write a message.

Use open trap doors.

I think this way will work but i am not sure it`s a minecart elevator so no need for pistons:

Just press space and it disappears :)

The water and sign trick is the most efficient, until pistons are added.

Yeah it is tacky looking. What's weird is I'm pretty darn sure I didn't see it the first few signs I placed, then I came back a day or 2 later and it was there.

Make a 3x3 upward minecart spiral with powered rails as the inclines

Huh. Thanks for the video, killshot. I do wish there was a creative mode on the Xbox version. Gads how much better that would be.

Another thing I need is lots lots lots more iron. And more dungeons :)

if you hit done(dont just hit B) you wont get that message, or open the text menu and close it then hit done, you wont get that message on the sign

Oooooh. That would look cool. And if I'm not mistaken, going from bedrock to sky would be at least 500m.

But that also uses up a crapload of resources, and with them being semi limited, that's not so good. Shame you can't ferry resources from world to world.

Yikes. That doesn't look terribly fun, it seems like a lot more work than the previou options though.

You can just put a period on the bottom line and it is barely noticable.

*edit* didn't see the post about space bar. Gonna use that from here on. Thanks!

Just use ladders. None of these solutions work as well as ladders.

When you go to write a message just hit y(it makes a space) instead of writing something. It doesnt have to be on all the lines either. Just one space and it shouldn't say anything.

If you mean 500m for the achievement? You cant turn. Other wise you could make a circle using 10 rail and 1 powered and get the achievement easy. It has to be 500 without turning. Or just 500 rail. Actually it would be more like 490 rail and 10 powered rail. or something along those lines.
I can't figure out how to do the achievement get thing, so.... yeah

If the video about the mine carts works, then it would be a million times more efficient than ladders.

Okay so each rail is 1 meter?  

And what I was thinking is doing a full 500m spiral, but if it can't turn, then there is no point with trying that. As for having to be a straight track, that's a bit disappointing, but just means I'll have to get a good spot and go all the way down the center.
