So, I want to be able to activate a redstone signal using a command block, but from way across the map. How can I do this?


Use /setblock. For example:

The left command block is whatever you want to put in it. For my example, I used

testfor @a

(This command tests if anybody is online...pretty simple).

The right command block is

setblock x y z redstone_block

Replace x,y, and z with whatever the coordinates are next to your redstone dust. So, I put a torch next to the left command block. It gets powered, makes a signal, powers the setblock command block, that command blocks sets a redstone block next to the redstone dust, and viola.

  • @Alex Yes, that was (close) to my command. However, I put x y z for the OP to put in their coords, and not confuse them. – APCoding Mar 26 '16 at 22:25
