I heard about this a while back, and it looks totally awesome. I can't wait for 1.5!! Stop torturing me, Mojang... Dx

unless they need to be in direct sunlight to work, which would be common sense but would suck

It wouldn't be that bad just put it at the surface a couple of blocks in the ground and then run the Redstone signal down to your base where the lights are. It would require a fair amount of Redstone resource but would be worth it.

it would be cool if you could place these upside-down like half-slabs, thus inverting the signal!
it fits Minecraft logic and they look the same size as slabs.

but if not they still will be cool!
I need to post more -3-

Are those the old gravel textures in the background?

This affirms my belief that Mojang will indeed make a new Nether ore for the Redstone Update. Look at that green-brown material the light sensor is made of. It looks nothing like anything already in the game. And that green-brown color contrasts nicely against the red of Netherrack. I have no doubt that the green material the light sensor is made of is in fact the new nether mineral.

This looks cool, you could probably just slab a NOT gate on a sensor on top of a lamp and BOOM .. street lights.

I fail to see the green you are speaking of. I see brown and an off-white. Nothing the Redstone Lamp doesn't already have.

Considering that with a few redstone torches, these light sensors can become night sensors, and power on/off my city lights automatically. Can't wait for the update!

This could be cool. It could be used for lights the only come on at night if you invert a torch.

Brownish-green. Whatever. Brown. It's a much greener brown than dirt, isn't it? Redstone lamps have brown in them because they're turned-off glowstone. The brown in the light sensor has to come from a material in its crafting recipe since there's so much of it. No current material has that color. The crafting recipe will probably consist of a partial rim (like in a chest or furnace recipe, but without the top row) of the new material with redstone dust in the center. Purely speculation, of course.

I can't imagine such effort being put forth for the crafting of such an item. I suppose we will find out. =)

Notice how the end lamp is off after only about 10 blocks. This probably means that the detector only outputs a redstone strength equivalent to the amount of light.

awesome i cant wait to see what else they will add. my biggest hope for this update is something that has NOT been done before in a mod yet it is something we could make use of.

also it would be awesome if they added a form of light source that is safe to the player and not easily destroyed, i think Vechs may have mentioned this in one of his videos XD.

Now notice that sunlight is a light level of fifteen, and the sun isn't low enough to be a lower level of light.

Perhaps it will be like lapis and give you multiple pieces of the mineral for each block of ore?
