# Trouble making a 5 x 6 wall of redstone lamps

I am trying to make a 5 high by 6 wide cube of redstone lamps to work all at once but I'm having issues getting them to work. They need to be wired so that you can turn them on and off with a clock.

Here is what one corner looks like currently.

Here is the wiring I've tried so far.

Basically I'm clueless as to how I can wire the other wall and have all the lamps light up. The power is coming from underneath the center block.

• I feel like I have the solution, let me try.

• Are there lamps in the corner between the two walls? Jan 10, 2016 at 13:05

### That's not possible with lamps in the corner

The problem, as I am sure you are aware, are the corner blocks. Take a look at a two high section:

To light up the corner blocks, we need to power an adjacent lamp directly, by pointing either a repeater/comparator, a line of redstone dust, or a torch (from below!) into it. Simply powering the adjacent lamps (such as by placing a redstone block/torch next to them) won't do. We can't do that directly on the corner blocks, meaning we have to power either both green or both red blocks directly.

However, none of the methods capable of directly powering a block fits in a 1 high space. Nor are there ways to directly power two blocks on top of each other at once, making a 5 by 6 full cube impossible.

### Solution without corner blocks

However, if you leave out the corner blocks, it's definitely doable, although a bit of space below will probably be needed. The corners are still tricky, but you can use a torch/block/dust tower to light up most of it. The torch is connected to the input (green) underground.

Powering corner blocks from the cube inside still remains an unsolvable issue, because no block around them can be directly powered, and neither the corner themselves, thus making the full cube impossible.

However, a similar solution can be achieved in this way: four wall of lamps powered from the inside
