I tried to build a redstone vehicle in Minecraft (vanilla), but my attempts proved futile. I tried to build it using pistons, wire and some pushable blocks, but it didn't work, because the wire breaks when pushed. Also, when I used redstone blocks right in front of the pistons, they haven't extended. Any idea for a redstone-using vehicle, on unmodded Minecraft?

    Redstone wire vreaks when oushed by pistons. Some nice machines made with slime blocks, sticky pistons and redstone block can work as a redstone car. Browse through youtube, there are some machines like these. – spund3 Jan 22 '16 at 16:43
  • I knew the wire breaks when pushed. That's why I need help. @spund3 – John Jan 22 '16 at 16:46
  • A redstone vehicle using redstone wires is impossible. You can do one with slime blocks, sticky pistons and redstone blocks. – spund3 Jan 22 '16 at 16:47
  • Ok. I'll give it a shot. @spund3 – John Jan 22 '16 at 16:48

You need slime blocks. They not only prevent fall damage and a trampoline effect, it also gets attatched to blocks so when the block is moved with s piston, the slime block moves with it depending on what block it's next to. This is very useful for cars. Here's an example of a slime block car:

You need:

  • Pistons

  • Sticky Pistons

  • Redstone Blocks

  • Slime Blocks

Use these to build your slime block car. Since redstone falls of a moved block, use slime blocks and redstone blocks instead of dust!
