Greetings folks! I've come here to pick the brains of the redstone engineers of the world :wink.gif:
To create an entire floor of pistons (facing upward for vertical motion), with Gravel blocks on top of all. Say a 10x10 room, but larger is fine. As long as it is more than two pistons WIDE. (I did that easy)
To make a 1 block tall room when the lever is ON, which mushrooms will be planted on. No mobs can spawn in the 1 high room when pistons are ON (raised), mushrooms will grow. Harvest is done by switching lever OFF (lowering all pistons) and then running into the now 2 high room and gathering them.
I have absolutely no idea how to get redstone wiring to enable a row of pistons ABOVE it. Can see what I am talking about in the background of the picture. Also, the farthest row of pistons into the room will need to be powered by a second, separate lever. But I think with the initial setup figured out I could work that out.
I'm at your mercy, folks! Thank you for your time :smile.gif:
also, good idea for the mushroom farm, as then you don't need a water harvest
also, maybe try putting glowstone/torches in the wall at the same height of the gravel when mushrooms grow, so the light is blocked when it needs to be, but you can see when harvesting
