I was trying to make a double door that would open fully (both doors) if one was opened, and close fully if one was closed (by right-clicking, not by buttons).

How can I make a double door like this?

A compact way of doing this would be good, and I don't mind using command blocks, though redstone would be better.

  • its been a while since ive played minecraft, but cant you just connect redstone from each side of the door to the same pressure plate?

  • @ZeroStack They want this to work with right clicking, not just buttons/pressure plates.

I found a solution with command blocks:

The contraption from the front above

What the numbers are:

  1. /testforblock ~ ~+3 ~ minecraft:door C
  2. /testforblock ~ ~+3 ~ minecraft:door C
  3. /setblock XR YR ZR minecraft:wooden_door O
  4. /setblock XL YL ZL minecraft:wooden_door O
  5. /setblock XR YR ZR minecraft:wooden_door C
  6. /setblock XL YL ZL minecraft:wooden_door C

And what the letters are:

  • XR, YR, ZR are the coordinates of the Right door
  • XL, YL, ZL are the coordinates of the Left door
  • O and C are the door state numbers. O stands for open, C for closed. Instead of these two numbers, use:

    • O = 4, C = 0 when the doors are facing east (positive X)
    • O = 5, C = 1 when the doors are facing south (positive Z)
    • O = 6, C = 2 when the doors are facing west (negative X)
    • O = 7, C = 3 when the doors are facing north (negative Z)

You can tell which way the door is facing by pressing F3 and pointing at it:

Note in the screenshot that you are looking west, too, even though the door is on the closer side of the block to you.
