So I have about two chests of redstone dust and nothing really to do with it. The problem is I'm not that interested in making elaborate mechanisms I prefer building nice looking buildings. So since red stone has no aesthetic use but only a mechanical use I don't really know what to do with it. Does anyone know of a way to use redstone dust aesthetically?
Make a security system so when someone steps a foot in your house, redstone lights turn on.
Of course, this would be useless on sp, but still fun because youll know if a monster or something like a pig has wandered into your house.
Once pistons are added and redstone is able to interact with the world, it will be more useful. Depending on their capabilities ('sticky' pistons and pistons-pushing-pistons), you could use them for all sorts of useless asthetic things such as changing the wall color, or potentially even having rooms reconfigure themselves at the push of a button. Retractable beds anyone? How about netherrack torches that come out of the floor at night?
make a double door, with a button that keeps the doors open until the pressure plates are hit on the other side?
Make a "Hit Button, Get Bacon" thingy in your kitchen?
find a above ground zombie/Skelly spawn, fill teh bottom with stone pressure plates, and connect them all to a line of note blocks that tell you when its morning?
it also makes a cool ascetic torch in homes, and such
