This is my current minetrack setup. The red marked part is supposed to go up, such that it works as a booster.

On the left handed side you can see a wire going to the other track that is behind the booster - when it gets triggered (as in the image), the booster track magically resets and disables itself.

Other than wiring a different way, is it possible to prevent that behaviour?

  • Minecart booster tracks no longer work in recent versions of minecraft.

I'm afraid not. The current triggers the neighboring blocks to update, which resets the slope of the track. Simply move the wiring (and what it connects to) one block further.

  • Thanks! But this won't trigger the shunt, right?

  • You could also trigger the track piece with a redstone torch underneath it, and invert the signal from your input using a NOT gate.

  • @Kevin The blocks will still be updated at the next current change.
