I'm trying to create an elevator where you can't see any of the redstone or pistons while in or outside of it since I want to make an actually nice-looking one for a hotel or something. Anyways, this is my setup for one which may be impossible unless I can either use a command to move blocks (and the player) up, or activate the pistons without having to summon a redstone block:

P=Sticky Piston

D=Dirt or solid block

1=Redstone torch

(I have it set up already so the lever can switch the torches on/off and activate the outer ones, but I'm having trouble with trying to get an elevator that's larger than 4x4 blocks to raise two blocks up or higher without a ridiculously complex or confusing system.

  • Actual pictures would be easier to follow than ascii art; could you take some screenshots? Also, have you tried just placing a redstone block next to the piston with a command? – rivermont - Will B. Apr 4 '17 at 22:56
  • Yes you're right lol that would make it a lot easier to understand. Here it is, basically (solid non-piston blocks would be on top of the second ones in the column): img08.deviantart.net/789e/i/2017/094/6/e/… & img00.deviantart.net/a604/i/2017/094/5/4/… Pretty much I'm wondering how to get those 4 pistons in the middle to work – Shelilla Apr 5 '17 at 3:47

/setblock ~ ~-2 ~ redstone_block

Activate it and 2 blocks under the command block will be a redstone block above the redstone block place another command block above the redstone block saying:

/setblock ~ ~-1 ~ air

From the redstone block put redstone to the pistons or better yet

/setblock (x y z of one block under piston) redstone_block

  • They said without a Redstone block – brododragon Oct 5 '19 at 5:36

I think you will have to make the middle 4 pistons on the first layer retract, so that you can then summon redstone blocks.
