I've seen a lot of cobblestone generators, but never a smoothstone one, so I decided to make one! It creates two stone blocks at a time and uses my double piston extender to push both blocks out at once. So instead of just pushing smoothstone one at a time, which in itself is faster to collect than a cobble generator, it makes two and pushes them both, making it even faster to mine. It can also be used to make houses/rooms or whatever, but takes a few more pistons than with a normal cobble self-building house. Worth it, though - stone looks so much better than cobble :smile.gif:

Point, there is none. You yield the same product if you have just built a cobblestone one.
Read the above posts. If you don't feel like doing that, read this one.
Benefits over cobble:
1. Smoothstone takes less time to mine, so large amounts of resource gathering takes considerably less time (6.4 seconds per stack of cobble/smoothstone)
2. You don't need to smelt cobble into stone if you have an enchanted pickaxe with silk touch
3. It makes better looking self-repairing structures
3a. Stone looks better than cobble in most texture packs
Would you please do a tutorial for making this? I'm the type of person who likes to build extremely large floating mob traps on every world I make, and having access to such fast stone generation would help me alot.
