I'm trying to create a working portcullis for my castle, but I can't seem to figure out what I could be doing wrong. I've tried so many tutorials on youtube, but when the bottom half works, the top half does not, or when it does, each piston works separately and will repeat forever. I'm trying to make it so one lever can open and close the gate (on each side of the gate).
Does anyone know how to make this work in the Java Edition, 1.15.2? I'd be really grateful for any assistance, as I've been at this for nearly two days!
No, that was not me. I wish I had seen it before I spent time making this.
Well, that is part of the problem. I did search up how to make a working portcullis on 1.15 but nothing seems to come up, so I was hoping someone here on the forums knew of one or could help me figure out how to fix it for 1.15.
Well, you could probably tear out everything underground and replace it with some other triple piston extenders that didn't break the gravel.
I tried messing with the timing to see if that would help but I just ended up with the pistons not going all the way back down.
The design is too complex and integrated to, at least for me, modify easily.
It's not easy to understand why the gravel breaks, I'm thinking there must be some bounce in the system so that the pistons go down and then bounce back up enough to break the gravel, or something like that.
They don't go down all the way until I press it again, and the fences come down to push them down. Let me look over my repeaters again, to be sure I copied your repeater pattern. And this is on singleplayer for now, but I want to build it on a server.
My repeaters were exactly like yours; still happened. Not sure what could be the problem. I will rebuild it again.
Odd, I don't really know what I'm doing, I'm just messing around at random but for me it works with a total delay on the 2 repeaters to each set of pistons of 4-6, so all of the variants in this screenshot.
