Double locking iron doors. There are two pressure plates on the inside, and a button on the outside. The lock is also inside. I'm pretty proud of it.
I also situated the doors on block of obsidian for extra creeper resistance!
The redstone contraption I made wasn't too shabby. It was an integrated castle defense system. When an entruder steps on the pressure plates that surround my doors, an musical alarm sounds off throughout the castle. I can then go to my castle foyer and fire arrows through dispensers until the mob is killed. It's a work in progress, I'm adding more things. But for now, that's what I have successfully built.

The iteration of these lines brings gold;
The framing of this circle on the ground
Brings whirlwinds, tempests, thunder and lightning.
I designed a memory bit - it's a 7x7x3 room of tangled wires with the following properties:
Stores a binary value (on/off)
a pulse of input to input one (such as from a button press, or a clock pulse) will set it to 'on'
a pulse of input to input two will toggle it from 'on' to 'off' or vice-versa.
I have a string of them hooked up in a row as a byte to a button - every time you press the button, it adds 1 to the byte's value.
rather than rely on a continuous power source like most other minecraft computers, the state of this computer remains constant until the next pulse of input is received
if you want it smaller... i can get it down to only 3x3x1
a loop of two torches (one holding the other off) works, but you would need to know its state in order to know which to apply a charge to.
there's no 'toggle' function, essentially.
my 7x7x3 (which includes the dirt walls and roof, so 5x5x2, really) building is basically a loop with two 'and' switches on delays (to stop the input from switching it twice). one of the 'and' switches is linked to both inputs, and the other is only linked to input two.
making a secret switch leading out to an iron door, the most complicated part is bloking all the redstone wires and i had to put it underground. few hours later and my beehive killing project (used the beehive mod)to set it with TNT
after the hard work on the door it ended up having a crater and destroyed my door :tongue.gif:
A castle defence system. 2 days of gameplay to make. It was a tripwire pressureplate that sets off an alarm, if the intrueder walks through the main entrance they get shot by 10 arrows and then get flooded by lava. Luckily there is a back entrance to reset the alarm.
* What is the most complex redstone device that you, personally, have made?
* What did it do?
Add any two numbers between 1-128
* How long did it take you to create / debug it?
About and hour. Maybe more, I'm bad with time.
Either my pressure plated double doors (both with pressure pads on both sides and a button on one and pressure pads on the other) :tongue.gif: or my rave room that is just 4 rapid pulsars powering a floor covered in wiring, with an on/off switch.
The best thing I've made is probably an alarm system, which lights up redstone torches at every house that I have (on SMP) so I know if there's an intruder in any of my property. And then an easy hidden switch to reset the alarm.
It's not great, and I know I could easily make something WAY more complex, I've just never needed to.
Kinda disappointing, 'cause I love using redstone.
And then I've made combo locks... but those are useless.
I created dispensers that dispensed colored wool, on a 5-clock, very close to each other, before they introduced repeaters. I couldn't think of any other way to fit in such a small space other than a 5-clock for each.

Been noticing this phenomenon more where people who hold standards that above average are silenced while those with standards lower than average are viewed as pleasant and preferable. No wonder mass media is in such ****.
I'm not good with redstone. The best thing I made was a circuit that plays the Zelda secret sound. It's wired to a dispenser filled with wooden swords, and above the button there's a sign saying "It's dangerous to go alone -- take this!"
