MCPE/Win10: New "Observer" Block in Future Update

Minecraft has always carried a curious legacy of interesting glitches, and few places are as apparent with that as redstone. Everything from cardinal-direction placement to spawning obsidian straight out of redstone have been found over the years, and are usually patched out. One glitch in particular has always remained, however: a state known as "quasi-connectivity.


 


 



 


 


In the picture above are two setups for a redstone block, and some lamps. In the left setup, only the lamp directly contacting the redstone block is powered. There is no transmission of power beyond the first block. However, the right setup powers all of the lamps due to the placement of one line of redstone, which allows the signal to transmit both to blocks in contact with it, and a number of adjacent ones as well.


 


MCPE/Win10 developers seem enamored with this particular glitch; based as it is in Java, Pocket Edition players cannot use it. So, the developers are planning to include an actual block in Pocket Edition that would allow for similar setups, without depending on semi-reliable bugs to do so. Enter, the Observer block: it checks for changes in the environment and, if triggered, switches between emitting a strong signal and an unpowered state, but without relying on a bug to do so. Neat!

Redstone aficionado Mumbo Jumbo doesn't waste any time jumping straight into the explanation for building this rather unique underground Minecraft bunker, but if you can keep up, it's a pretty amazing guide! He leaps right into a clever entrance-building walkthrough, following up with all the basics for bunker survival - food dispensary, water management, and more besides.


 


Whether you're looking to build a post-apocalyptic shelter, or just want a home away from prying monster (and player) eyes, this guide is sure to inspire. Enjoy!

Whats happening with redstone on Pocket / Win 10?

Hey there everyone!



As you may have heard, weve been making a few changes to the way redstone works in Pocket / Windows 10 Edition - just part of our ongoing mission to give minecrafters as many cool tools as possible. Most recently, weve been trying to simplify the peculiarities of redstone without compromising on the power.





Talking of power, right now a block can:




  • give off power (often referred to as a strong signal or directly powered signal)

  • be powered (often referred to as giving off a weak, or indirectly powered signal)

  • be unpowered



In the image below you can see this in action. The redstone block on the left gives off a strong signal, lighting up the adjacent lamp. But the lamp diagonal to the redstone block and the one next to that remain unpowered. Over on the right, a redstone wire has been placed on the middle lamp, allowing it to carry the strong signal from the redstone block and light the lamp next to it.





Pistons get powered the exact same way!





Of course, Redstone engineers from PC / Mac may note something missing here: something our community calls quasi-connectivity!



Whats quasi-connectivity? In a sense, its a bug. But its one thats become so useful to crafters that its become a feature! In the PC edition of Minecraft, pistons can receive redstone power from a distance of two blocks when they are placed in a very specific diagonal position, rather than from a block right next to it. But blocks only get updated when something affects adjacent blocks. It means that you can power a piston and then remove the power without the piston detecting it! It puts the piston in this state where it actually needs to be deactivated, but doesnt know yet. Clever minecrafters exploit that to build elaborate trigger mechanisms known as Block Update Detectors: when something happens to a block next to a piston - like a block being placed or destroyed, gravel falling, fire igniting, rails re-orientating or even cake being eaten - the piston will wake up, notice that it isnt powered any more, retract and trigger something else.



We never really intended this - but the community quickly showed us its potential, using it to build automatic farming contraptions, flying machines and so much more.



When remaking Minecraft for Pocket, we had to rethink how redstone works: we decided itd make more sense to remove the bug - or, rather, never put it in - but offer an alternative, official way to achieve the same result. And so weve introduced the Observer block. It checks for changes in the environment and, if triggered, switches between emitting a strong signal and an unpowered state - but without relying on a bug to do so.





Weve tested this with lots and lots of different builds, and we cant wait to see what you lot do with it. Weve also added some other cool stuff: pistons can now push chests and many other things!



Were not done yet, either! Well continue listening to what you folks have to say and refine redstone accordingly. PC crafters can rest easy, too: we arent planning to remove quasi-connectivity from that version. But stay tuned for other exciting developments there, too!



Cheerio!
