Minecraft: Redstone Ore Lamps (Always Lit) Tutorial
Hello, everyone and welcome back to another Minecraft tutorial We need to head down into these caves. There is something down here that I need to show you, aha, I see some straight away Look some redstone ore, it is all lit up it is emitting particle effects looking very fancy In fact I’m very glad that this is here because it’s kind of dim in this area and of course redstone ore Can emit light which is doing right now wow this stuff looks kind of majestic and there is a lot of it about as you can see though all of it is lit up and Constantly emitting those particle effects which I really really like wouldn’t you love to put something like this in your world in your Minecraft base Looks pretty cool. I wonder what’s in these chests Hmmm. I think this is a hint So what is going on here? Why is this redstone ore always emitting light and always emitting those particle effects as they can do when a player Walks on a redstone ore it will activate it, there it goes, well if I press F3 and B we will be showing hitboxes, so you can see my hitbox, where I’m looking the hitboxes of other things in the world. If we float around to this side though you’ll see a little line coming out of the front here it’s very thin it might be hard to see on the YouTube video, but there it is the black line. If I break this block right here. Aha. There is an armor stand inside of there. And this is the trick right here if you put an armor stand on top of one of these redstone ore blocks it will continuously Update it and therefore keep it emitting light and emitting those particle effects So credit where credit is due? Massive thank you to Paranor001 for tweeting this at me. Paranor says : “playing around and found this mechanic. Redstone ore stays on indef, with the armor stand on it. Thought of you. Well, I appreciate that Paranor We can now go share this with the Minecraft community and if ever you discover something of interesting you want to share it with people, you can get at me on Twitter again. Thank you to Paranor for sharing this. So the armor stand on top of the redstone ore will continue to update for a long time I should have probably recorded my testing that I did earlier because of the limited time I have now this little demonstration I wanted to make unfortunately had a nosey llama climbing on top of the blocks and messing it up But you can see throughout the short clip But the whole time the armorstand is keeping that redstone or lit. So now you may be wondering how it was that I was able to stack these ores together and keep all of them lit up? Well, you want to have like a pillar of blocks like this, alongside where you want your redstone ores to go. So we need to push a redstone ore downwards if we were to push a block to the side we will push the armorstand off So we put a piston, we face it down, and we move the blocks like this into place Now that one will eventually go out each one that you want to be lit has to have the armor stand on top of it So then what you’ve got to go and do is drop another one on top of it that’ll make sure that that second one stays lit. So wherever you use these you’re always going to need to have two blocks above it to hide the armor stand. Unless hiding the armor stand isn’t necessary, so let’s do that And I think there you go, now both armor stands are hidden and those two will stay on indefinitely. So if you enjoyed this video and leave a like as always, thank you for the support if you want to check out more awesome things you can do in Minecraft, the tutorials playlist is the first link in the description box And if you’d like to come onto my plot wild server and check out this beautiful plot that I used here to demonstrate This cool feature then the IP address and the instructions on how to get this plot are in the description Box down below. Anyway, that’s it for me this one. Thank you for watching and I’ll see you next time, bye bye!
