TheAmazingBobert's engineer application
« on: July 17, 2013, 08:04:35 AM »
Hello, My IGN is TheAmazingBobert I'm 16 My mcmmo level now since the update is about 74, but in the old world I was near the thousands. I have been part of the server off and on for around the past year, I've played as the server was updated or when I have a reliable internet connection, I began to use redstone about 3 months after I began playing(I was a dope when I started for real, I thought you had to click repeatedly to mine..) When I first started I wanted to rank up with the intention of helping others in the server, but since the most recent update with the new world and new ranks, I have been left without many commands that can help me do so, like creating warps, and certain res commands, that I don't have access to anymore. After my first week of playing, I became a citizen, and about a month later builder, but I was unable to join the server due to either being updated ahead or bad internet connection, but now that I've been playing a year I'd like to become an engineer so that  I have access to more commands(plus it'd be nice to be able to get redstone without having to go 100 feet underground to get it or spend money..).
Anyway I have put together 3 different builds all on the server the first of the three is called A daytime Nighttime Chime.




What this build basically does it make a chime of your choice during the day and night, at the crack of dawn it goes off from the piston going over the current activated by the daytime sensor (from the newest update) the piston blocking the current causes the noteblocks to chime. At night the daytime sensor does not get enough light to power the piston, so it pulls back allowing the original current to flow through making the blocks chime again. This device is very useful for people in minecraft with indoor farms, or houses that need extra protection, or just a good way to tell time.

This is a little more complicated(not by much though)build called the Automatic double doors(a more or less common redstone build)




(Leon was stalking me during this... those are his legs in the top right)
This build is fairly simple yet complicated if you put it in a house... Both doors are connected to a redstone current by pressure plates, this used to be an even more complicated thing to do in old versions where when the doors were double pressure plated one would stay open, this was solved with a red stone torch to keep constant power the door that was always open, this torch was cut off by a circuit activated by the pressure plate on it's side, anyway that was fixed in recent updates. now this is an easy to do build as you can see in the pictures above that makes it so you no longer have to open doors and there is no delay :D. There is a way to lock it though so mobs cannot get into your house, But unfortunately I did not have the supplies to do this ;-;.

This next redstone build is basically an autofarm build(also quite common, sorry I am not a clever man ;-;)


The collection box :P(A chest connected to a hopper)


Okay, so this build is incredibly, ridiculously simple. so you setup a farm on a hill with a pool of water at the top blocked off by powered pistons.
(make sure there are walls around the farm) you also dig a hole at the bottom of the hole running the length of the farm for the water to flow into at the end of that hole put a chest with a hopper below water lever for the wheat seeds carrots or potatoes to flow into. when the farm is full grown you unpower the pistons releasing the water flow to pull up the crops and flow them to the bottom of the hill into the ditch made for the water and into the collection bin(power pistons and repeat).

While I'm loving the amount of info on your application, some more pictures of your redstone builds would be great! :)

Application Pending

added Builds For second App Attempt:

Okay So I built 3 more redstone contraptions for My app the first being a piston clock.


So this basically tells you time from revolutions.. the piece of stone in the middle makes a full revolution every second, but I have it deactivated right now due to the fact it lags me out ;-;. It's a very  simple build, good for timed games like hide and seek(don't play it in minecraft trust me there's too many places and too much land for hiding)

second We have the AND gate very usefull tool for things like locked doors(I actually created a locked door to make up for the double doors)this one has alot of pictures









As you can see the AND gate can be used for mechanisms like the double door, it's just shortening the circuit and making it lockable, and it can work form both sides of a door, okay so the AND gate is basically three stone in a line as a base two redstone torches on either side of the top of the gate a peice of redstone in the middle of the two torches, now on one side in the middle put another redstone torch and on the other a lever under each torch then put one in the middle behind the other torch to lock the circuit, you can now use the AND gate for many complicated builds, or to mess with your freinds by locking your doors.

third and lastly we have the Very complicated Zipper Elevator(this was a pain...)




This basically works through a series of cut off redstone circuits being activated from you stepping on a pressure plate at the bottom, the now acticated circuits activate pistons all the way up the shaft pushing you on the stairs up to the next level safely.

**bonus: A draw bridge hooked up to a AND gate**


did this for the giggles :P

Oo I know this doesn't count for anything but I like your application, quite detailed, numerous builds (not that complicated but still great  :P) good luck from me.
