So, after watching that video they have just posted on the main page, I am VERY excited about the pistons. There's only one thing i'm not too happy about. When I hear they were coming out with pistons, I though " i'm gonna build a secret storage device, that will only be visible when i flip a switch!". Sadly, the video showed that storage boxes are not able to be pushed :sad.gif:
Anyone else have something they'd like to say about the pistons? I'd like to hear other opinions on it.
They should do that! I know it can propel sand and gravel, because they fall and whatnot.
Maybe if you were to punch the TNT and then start the piston? Because when TNT is punched it is given sand characteristics
Well, when i heard that 1.7 was going to have pistons, i thought this would be a perfect opprotunity to build an amazing TNT cannon, but i noticed in the video that they only launch blocks about a block high, but im sure there's many other things i can make..
About the launching in the air thing, remember that he was using levers, not buttons. They could work differently
Jeb tweeted that there will be no jump/ throw effect and that "it would be opening up a can of worms" in regarding getting pistions to push chest and furnaces.
I'm hopping Hippo's fix will be a bucket plug in as well because I wanted to make a roller coaster in smp that juggled the riders.
None the less the Official pistons look cool and the animation is smother then the mod. I am hoping that there is a jump block added that w/ combination to the piston we can achieve some of the same things we where able to do with the pistons. Because it was always the jumping/ throwing aspect of the pistons that I found fun to play with.
