Okay so, i'm playing on a factions server and want to hide my diamonds so if I get raided they are safe lol Anyways, i'm trying to make the hatch right next my bed and I have the sticky piston and all the materials and know how to hide the wiring, just how do I get the sticky piston to work with a lever and stay extended when i remove the lever. I want to be able to place the lever and switch it to open the hatch then switch it again to close the hatch and remove the lever and still have it closed and non-visible to other players .-. I hope that description helped because that's probably the best I could describe it lol please help so I don't get raided and lose my valuables.......... Thanks much appreciated<3
I think I have the answer for ya:
Where you have your lever, make a wire of redstone connect to a block. Then on that block, place a redstone torch. Next to the torch, place your piston.
When place, the piston will automatically extend, so space accordingly.
The only catch is the lever's on/off will be reversed; so turning the lever on will actually turn the piston off, and vice versa.
However, since the piston will be getting power from the torch, removing the lever won't cause the piston to retract when removed.
You can also place the lever directly on the block with torch, but I'm not sure how compact/big you want to make it, so up to you.
this is pretty much what the last poster said, but I already made a graphic, soo
Yeah, this should help, It hides the chest under a wall, any wall, it doesnt have
to be a corner. The good thing about this thing is that the lever doesnt need to
be there for the chest to be hidden, so you can keep it hidden a little easier.
I don't know about you, but whenever I see switches laying about, my first instinct
is to start flippin' em
there are more complex ways of doing this (neater ways too) but this is very resource light,
and should suit your purposes fine.
you can build a hidden Chest that requires the placement of a redstone torch in another area. Doing so has many Advantages 1 no lever for people to Stumble upon 2 completely hidden in a wall that has a fake side so you can open it
or a 3rd option is to make a Lava drop that has an Empty back and you can teleport with an Ender pearl. Most people wont waist Ender pearls on what may be a light Display downside is you are messing with lava and can hurt yourself/ burn down your base
Over all you can look up on youtube about hidden rooms, Secret doors and traps all are very important for keeping your stuff safe on PVP servers/grief zones I rig every base I make with a panic room that flushes all my items down into chest (using hoppers) and I run into an obsidian panic room and hit just a few buttons and BOOOM nothing left but a Crater when I get invaded and i still have my stuff save in a Tomb of obsidian
