For example: could you effectively push a line of blocks off into the distance? Is it limited by the loaded chunks? Or a shorter upper limit countable in blocks?

12 blocks is the maximum. http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Pistons


I learned it is between 12-15 blocks depending on the block.

  • Are you sure that they can ever push over 12 blocks? Mar 23, 2013 at 6:42
  • Any evidence or hints on which blocks can be pushed beyond the 12 maximum the wiki lists? Mar 23, 2013 at 6:53
  • As far as I know >12 is a wrong answer. unless you have proof and we can reproduce this.
