    Redstoned Rig 3.0
    I have been working on rigs in Cinema4D! I decided to post this on the forums for people to download. Also the lib4D file comes with 2 versions of the rig, one with different fancy feet
    Here's the channel-log video of my channel (other versions of my rig is on my channel too)
    Here is the download from mediafire:
    Also you are welcome to give me credit for rigs :D

    Do you have a server where you want
    to make a spawn, lobby, or an arena?If answered yes, read this forum and in seconds you'll be the best builder on that server!

    One first thing to start with is the shape, size, and color. It depends on what you like best for the color (My favorite is spruce planks) and then it also depends if you like Art Deco (I prefer spheres) for the shape. Then if you need to fit a lot of information then you should do one of the two, 1. Make it bigger. 2. Put in less furnishing.


    Next to do is the floor. To make it have a detailed look vary in types or variants (EX. Chiseled Stone Bricks, Stone Bricks, Quartz, Chiseled Quartz, etc...) And then give it a pattern and make sure it is symmetrical, because symmetrical is key.


    Next thing to do, or as I say shouldn't do. Some people when they build structures use a ton of glass, but for some structures with quartz and, or iron blocks can have a lot of glass. So don't use to much of glass if you build the structure like mine.


    Next modification to do it to make the walls curve in or out to give it a wavy look (Try to use the main source that you got the block your building it with (EX. Spruce Planks = Spruce Wood, Wooden Planks = Wood, Cobblestone = Stone, Stone = Cobblestone, etc...)



    Now You should finish the roof but don't finish it all the way for a "feature". This is probably one of the easiest steps and depending on the shape the longest.


    Now, for the hole that you might of left you should put a transparent block, curving down, then leave a 3 by 3 hole in the middle. Then put 1 quarts block in the middle of the 3 by 3 hole (Not included in picture).


    Now you should add lighting. You should use glowstone for the walls and roof and use redstone lamps for the floor. If you used dark blocks to make the building with you should make the lighting dim.


    Next we are going to add a water feature (optional). The spot where we left the 3 by 3 hole is going to be where it will be. Next you should make the path of where the water will flow, it cannot go on the ground. Then you will place the water of where the glass starts ONLY on the sides.


    Now you need to add furnishing. If you are making a spawn, you don't need much furnishing you only need posts to place signs and other stuff for it. And if you are making a house or something else you will probably need chairs, tables, TV, crafting table, etc...


    Now you'll need to make an entrance door. If you are making a spawn, I advise to use fence, slabs, iron bars, etc..., but NOT a full block as in wood, cobble, stone, etc...


    Now you're about done you just need to edit the outside entrance. Leaves, Stone Bricks, Bricks, Wool, etc... are good to edit the outside entrance, and you might also like to add a dim light.


    Good! Now you are done, now wait and watch for what the admins say about it or if your are building a house you'll have a safe living!

    You Know Much About Redstone In Minecraft?
    If You Answered Yes Then You Should Look Into The
    Thread! Here I Will Teach You About Redstone,
    How Stuff Works, And Maybe You Could Practice With
    Me 1 on 1!

    If you would like to do it 1 on 1,
    go to this server: mc.mcorigins.com
    and then ask for me and I'll give
    you the plot ID to go to :D

    Redstone Video:


    Lets start with some definitions!

    Redstone: Redstone is a crafting and brewing ingredient. Redstone dust can be obtained by mining redstone ore with a iron pickaxe or better, trading with priest villagers, or by killing witches. Redstone dust can be placed on the ground to make redstone wire. Redstone can also be crafted into a redstone torch and/or a redstone repeater. These items can be used in more complex traps and redstone circuitry.
    Redstone is a unique material in the game. Switches and redstone torches can provide electrical-like power to wires or objects.

    Redstone Torch: A redstone torch is special block in Minecraft that interacts with Redstone. It has several functions in redstone circuitry, but the primary purpose is to act as a power source.

    Repeater: A Redstone Repeater is a special block that interacts with Redstone. It has three main functions: acting as a repeater, a diode, and a delayer. Most likely, the reason they are called 'Redstone Repeaters' is for their primary use of repeating signals, since Redstone only travels up to 15 blocks without a signal booster. However, signals are only accepted in 3 directions: Either side (see below), front (output), or back (input). It also delays the signal by 1-4 ticks (selectable) so that long timing circuits of inverters will not be required for timed mechanisms any longer. Existing (traditional) repeaters/delayers still work.[1]

    Piston: Pistons are blocks capable of pushing most blocks, depending on the direction they are facing.

    Sticky Piston: Sticky Pistons are similar to the Piston; the difference is that it can pull blocks as well as push them.
    When extending, sticky pistons act exactly as regular pistons, pushing up to 12 blocks. When retracting, sticky pistons will pull along the block immediately in front of it. obsidian, bedrock, all blocks with tile entities, and extended pistons cannot be pulled, just as they cannot be pushed.
    It is possible for the block “stuck” to a sticky piston to be pushed aside by another piston, and sticky pistons can not hold sand and gravel horizontally against gravity; the stickiness is only in effect during the retraction of the piston.

    Pressure Plates: A Pressure Plate is a type of switch that can be placed onto a surface of a block. If connected by wire to an object (or placed adjacent to a blockthat can be powered), they will provide power to that object or block when stepped on by either a player or a mob (as well as other items; see below), and will stop when stepped off. Pressure plates are one of the five types of switches currently in the game.
    The Weighted Pressure Plate, a variant of the standand pressure plates, output a redstone signal dependant on the amount of items on it.

    Button: A button is a switch. Like levers, pressure plates, and tripwire hooks, it sends a redstone signal to adjacent blocks when pressed. However, a button can only be activated by being pressed and will only stay pressed for a short duration. After this, the charge to the object will be lost and the button will pop out, ready to be clicked again. However, with the creation of a T Flip-flop redstone circuit, it can be used as a lever substitute. Unlike levers and torches, a button can only be placed on the side of a block.
    Like any object that gives charges, it must be next to the object receiving the charge (doors, rails, etc.) or connected to it by a length of redstone wire.
    The button is one of five switches currently in the game. As a momentary-contact switch, it can be useful for resetting redstone circuits. The duration that a button is activated when pressed differs between button types, with stone buttons remaining active for 1 second (10 redstone ticks) and wooden buttons for 1.5 seconds (15 redstone ticks). Note that the wooden button can be shot by an arrow to become activated, unlike a stone button which must be physically pressed by hand, and they will stay pressed until the arrow despawns or is retrieved.
    When submerged in water, Buttons are destroyed, rather than merely becoming unattached, like torches.
    Also like torches, buttons can be placed to a side of a chest, dispenser,workbench, or furnace in the same fashion. This is done by placing any solid block above the one you want to place the button on, and right clicking it on the bottom with a button in hand. The button can't attach to the bottom of blocks, and will relocate to an available space. This lets you place the button on a block's side without right clicking it.
    Mobs (excluding the player) cannot press buttons by hand, but skeletons may unintentionally trigger wooden buttons when firing arrows. Wooden buttons can also be triggered by arrows fired from a dispenser.

    Lever: A lever is a type of switch. Levers, like the button, pressure plate, and redstone torch, can be connected with redstone wire to be operated far away from the target block. Levers can be placed on any opaque block. Levers can be placed on walls, floors, and ceilings.

    Redstone Block : Blocks of Redstone are mineral blocks and act as piston-movable redstone power sources which cannot be turned off. When power is applied to the block, it is unaffected and will still output a redstone pulse regardless. However, because of the way blocks act, it cannot power blocks adjacent to it.

    Dispensers: A Dispenser is a special redstone-powered block. When right-clicked, a menu allows you to place items inside it. Each time the block receives power from a redstone circuit, a random item from its inventory drops out. Dispensers resemble furnaces and droppers, but the three blocks have different uses and crafting recipes.

    Good! now I will show you some gates:

    *= Redstone Dust
    &= Redstone Repeater
    1(, 2, 3)= Redstone Repeater (According To What Tick It Is Set To)
    I, \, /= Redstone Torch
    L= Any Activation Device
    P= Piston
    S= Sticky Piston
    O=Block (Dirt, Stone, Wool, etc.)

    OR Gate:
    Side: Top:

    * *
    I * I I * I
    O I O I

    And Gate:

    Side: Top:

    * * * * *
    OOO * * *

    Will Be More Gates Added


    Now lets move on to what we can do with certain redstone items.
    (Same key as before)

    Redstone Torch:

    I What It Is Used For:
    O This redstone device
    I is used to make the
    O redstone current go
    I up.
    O& *

    \O & * * What It Is Used For:
    This redstone device is to invert
    the redstone signal. (Ex. Positive Signal=Negative Signal

    OI * * What It Is Used For:
    * * It can be a redstone device
    * * IO & * L called a "memory cell" which
    means to say like a button were
    to be pressed it would keep that signal positive.

    Redstone Repeater:

    P P P P What It Is Used For:
    & 1 2 3 This redstone device
    *********** L can be used to time
    in between a redstone signal to create
    an effect.
