So, I'm in a creative world and I want to do a one-tick pulse to start up a clock for a contraption that can't use the new method of clocks with comparators (), meaning one repeater into another at lowest time for both (). I want to be able to spawn a redstone torch connected to a powered block that makes that one-tick pulse, instantly shutting off, and then later be able to de-spawn it, all using only command blocks and the command, "setblock". My dilemma is that I can't make the torch connected to the wall of the block, as it spawns on the floor. Is there a way to make a torch, or button for that matter, connected to a wall via a certain position?
Wow! That's super duper helpful! Thanks so much. Although, I ended up finding a way to do it without needing the direction. Just have the torch on top of a powered block. Either way, that is very useful information and I'll be sure to use it in the future. Also, I didn't see any posts about this, and felt that it should be on here.
