I have never gotten the stairs to emit a redstone signal, no matter what kind of redstone "block" I use on them. =/
They did at one time. I corrected the bug and will push in next release.
beckyh2112 - Redstone propagation only works if the blocks are full cubes, and only one block mind you (unless you do the vertical redstone torch trick). Not my thing, it's just how vanilla code works.
This is what I've been longing to do, so that they can get along with Minecraft Comes Alive and Custom NPCs!
From what I remember when playing with Villagers a long time ago, they would gather at the doors from the inside at night. Unless that's been corrected since then, wouldn't they accidentally let zombies into the home with this type of configuration? Do none of the current trigger options work for villagers?
Is there any way for a user to add quilt patterns to the bed, the way we can add patterns for the chisel to use on blocks?
Yes if you go into the zip there's a readme file in "mods or assets/carpentersblocks/textures/blocks/bed/" You'll find a bunch of "design_X" folders - just copy one, increment the number, and add your own pillow.png, blanket.png or both.
