Rotator

This special device made with Red stone , Cobble ,Iron ,Wood and a Slimeball.


Recipe:
Posted Image

Version 1 of the Rotator
*Right Click Rotator*

Animated 3d Gif.
Posted Image


Here is the Block map i created and used for this model

Posted Image


How to Use:
If placed on floor the Job of this item is to rotate the one item above it 90 degrees clockwise Instantly each pulse of power, Right clicking the Side of it makes it set for counter-clockwise or vice versa.


If placed on the ceiling the Rotator is turned upside down and rotates the block below it 90 degrees clockwise Instantly each pulse of power and By Right clicking it the Side of it makes it set for counter-clockwise or vice versa.

To Place block on the Rotator Just Hold Shift while placing.

If Breakable items like tourches and signs are placed on top of rotator or a rotated block they will not brake or pop off from the rotation.

When the Rotations are Changed the Arrows on the side turns to the Correct direction needed.


When Right Clicked The Rotator will make a Click Noise and When Power is applied it will Make

a quick Buzz noise. To not be confused with the sound of Pistons.


And if power stays ON the Rotator it still only Rotate 90 degrees once, Similar to how Dispensers Work
sence update 13w04a came out Despensers and Droppers can now be faces up and down, I think rotators Could maybe work on there sides to add a way to turn these devices clockwise or counter-clockwise much like clocks.

only suggesting this cuase i seen new update and i think Rotators could help make

survival mode and Adventure map creation alot more Wide Range.


Version 2 of the Rotator
*Redstone Rotator*

Posted Image


animated gif showing all sides of the rotator version 2

Posted Image

this is the Blocks Map i used for the model. below

Posted Image

Version 2 Info: Version 2 Works about the same way as the version 1 Rotator and has same recipe but instead of a right click to change direction of the rotating instead block rotates based on the side where you apply power.


Added (3/20/2013): If Rotators are added This Would be a Good Way to Add More Face Blocks and Maybe some With useful Functions as well.



Director Block Name not fully set only temporary
New redstone Block to add Director Block Its made to go hand in hand with the Rotator The ideas are related so does not count as wish list
ike seen below animated gif.

Posted Image


Director block does not produce signal in any dirction besides the one block space in front of it. like seen below not animated.

Posted Image


this block used with rotators would be used for Extremly advanced curcuitry.
if used you can create more advanced compact clocks, timers, decoders ,turrets, Rs Nor-Latches and lots more.

this block can be used with Pistons as well.
recipe for this block is simple.

Suggested names for Director: Redstone Director.  only one suggested at the moment.



uses 7 Solid Stone and 1 Redstone Torch.

The rotor is ok, I can think of uses for that, so sure.
The 'catche' is totally unneeded though. The same thing can be done with redstone wire and a repeater(s) already so I don't see why anyone would need this.
The breaker would be useful I guess, but it has a fairly niche use, and can already be done with existing redstone. It also only has one use, most redstone components have a number of uses. Redstone torches, for example can invert the signal as well as send power upward. Repeaters replenish the signal and can also be used as delayers and be locked. I think more thought needs to go into this idea.

thanks for the feed back the most useful one seems to be the rotor i could make this thread dedicated to it.

Due to the way tile entities work, it would be impossible with furnaces/chests/dispensers, but it would work with pumpkins, logs, and the like.

i forgot How chest,Furneses some other things work but they would have to tweak them a good bit to make this work with rotors.
if they find a way to make it  work i wont complain lol, but its really meant to work with things like pistons and reapters and few other things.
i thought this would fit in pretty well in the game.

I for one am impressed. Heck yes.

Not saying Mojang should quit fixing bugs and start adding rotors and what was that other thing ... oh the collector? Yeah. No, fix the bugs. Then add stuff.

Still, at some point, with the most egregious bugs fixed, and the mod API in place ... it would be awesome to have some more machinery type stuff in game. Bravo!

I like the idea of rotors. Well it can be used for rail junctions and funny redstone contraptions. +1 for you.

I like the rotor, but the use can be limited.
maybe in adventure maps this can be used to make better circuts, not much else

This is a very good idea that would add a lot of variety to how redstone contraptions, especially involving minecarts, could be made.

Maybe rotating entity blocks isn't as problematic as moving them, at least I hope so
