:soil: =cuprite

will not output power untill fully charged
charge rate is 4 seconds per connected capacitor

holds charge for 4 seconds per connected capacitor when energy source is removed.

will charge connected water and metal blocks with electricity
(water, up to 6 blocks away. iron and gold, all connected blocks, good for electrocution traps :soil:
electrified water deals 2 hearts per second
electrified iron deals 4 hearts per second
electrified gold deals 6 hearts per second (gold conducts better than iron))

Mod Edit: Title Change

So if you put like 50 capacitors in a block, it would have enough power for 200 seconds?

Anywaysh.
A good idea...more traps to blow people up by shocking them to death.
But..here's some tweaking.
Electrified water deals 2 hearts every 5 seconds.
Electrified Iron deals 4 hearts every 5 seconds.
Electrified Gold deals 2 hearts every second.

Off topic: Cuprite was the unofficial pre-redstone name that wasn't coined by chanfags.
On topic: I think OP means a block that needs to be "charged" for several seconds before allowing the redstone through.

What I think he's looking for is a block that stores energy and charges nearby blocks which, when stepped on, shock the player once and drain the charge in the capacitor until it has recharged.  It's actually not a bad idea as an extra Redstone output block, or even as a Redstone circuit block for delaying flow through circuits; you could use it to make much slower clocks.

The one problem with the suggestion is that Redstone, according to Notch, doesn't carry electricity; it only carries information.

I think you will find my spelling is fine but im not good with grammer.

On Topic:

Good Idea it would save alot of space :Red: (ive had enough of those huge timeing circuits involvieng a large amount of NOT gates :P)

I can not handle this.

Also, I really don't understand enough about redstone to talk, but don't we have torches that give us as much "power" as we need? Maybe there's some use for logic circuits or something.

Yeah it kind o does, what the op wants is to make it much more simple, because as it is even making a cannon can quickly turn into a labyrinth in this game   (link definitely related)

notch was being silly.

A: All existing information transmission systems use either electricity [energy] , light [energy],sound [potential energy], or  contact [energy]


redstone emits light. this means that it is obstructing the flow of energy in some forma nd converting that energy into light


therefore Redstone currently has ALL the qualities of electricity and behaves in the same way

even if you say t is not electricity, it emits light and has energy, and therefore a capacitor can be constructed for it to delay the transfer of energy


prove me wrong
