Redstone part 3 (finally) Mo’ traps.
Heeeey sorry i haven’t done anything about redstone in…. a looooong time…. but here it is! More traps!
Trap number one is of my own design, I call it the fake house trap, you will need 2 pistons (be prepared to lose them) 1 block of tnt, a door, torch, 2 pieces of smoothstone and some redstone (it can differ depending on how you wire it though so carry at least 20 for this trap)
This trap is good if you have lots of nosey people on a server who can’t stay out of you hose, firstly you will need to dig out a 3 block long and 2 wide hole, with another 3 block wide tunnel going left at the seco- you know what just look at the diagram
Now normally this would all be covered, and make sure when you do make it it is covered by a hard substance, (anything but obsidian) next place a pressure plate as shown (just so you know where the redstone will be triggered) and dig out a bit more so you have room for the redstone.
in the end i did have to dig out a bit more, but all you have to do is make sure the pressure plate will trigger both pistons and the same time, the pistons are stacked on each other and will be used to push stone behind the player.
Now at this point it is starting to look quite obvious, but dont worry thats only so i
could show you how to make it, inside you can easily place dirt to hide the redstone, like so.
Don’t forget above the trap either, but don’t go to too much trouble, it’s only going to blow up anyway.
now in front of the two pistons place the two cooked stone, this will make it all look natural….. but does it really? i mean look…. you can see the pressure plate and tnt right? Well that’s where the house part comes in.
Place a door, torch or anything else you want that is cheap and wont trigger the tnt, and voilà!
To you it is a trap, to a greifer it is a raiding opportunity!… or so they think.
So let’s pretend I’m a griefer
Hey hey hey! A house for me to steal from >:D
Hahaha gotta be quick gotta…..
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH TNT! OH CRAP IT’S LIGHTED!
WHERE’ED THE DOOR GO!?!?!!? AAAHHHHHRRRG!
Boom, this trap takes up little space and is quite effective, just make sure you don’t step on the pressure plate in the process.
Trap 2: Lava corridor.
OK so….. This one is going to be quite hard to follow, so sorry about that, but Im going to try my best.
First things first, do you have someone always stealing your ores? Well fret not! this one will put them in their place!
firstly, dig out a corridor, (obviously)
There has to be some ore at the end, you can find some ore and build the trap around it or you can use the silk touch enchantment to pick up some ores, next place a redstone torch behind one of the ores and get it to run along the top edge of the corridor, once again how bit this trap is and how you wire it is all up to you but i still do have the basics in doing it.
Now this sky view shows the gist of it, place a redstone torch on the back of the ore so the miner can’t see it, then hook it up on a system of redstone (I used the other two redstone torches to make the line go longer) Like the previous trap you have to make the both pistons triggered by the same redstone current, but this time they are facing longways, make sure the pistons are always triggered, only become not triggered when the torch is broken.
Next put some stone around the triggered pistons with lava, like this:
Now you can seal up the whole area (be sure not to disconnect the redstone path) and make the corridor look like a corridor again, and make sure your trap is not visible from the top, but when sealing up the corridor make sure there is a two gap space below your pistons outstretched arm that lead a hole to the corridor, but if you can try to make it unseen.
All you have to do is set up the ore and your done.
Thanks for putting up with that, i am hoping to get a special program that will help me do things like this, but it all depends really, anyway so let’s pretend I’m a miner.
Lalalala mining mining……
DIAMONDS!!!!!…… Wait what was that sound?
Redstone?…… i think i should leave now…..
Now this trap will burn your victims items and the ores…. but it can be used over and over again! All you have to do is stop the lava flow, replace the redstone torch, repeat.
Well that’s all for now, sorry if this was really hard to follow, I will make it easier to follow next time, if you want me to do a certain trap message me and i will do it, and until then may you diamonds never burn, see ya!
