The Yogscast uses redstone-toggled fire, probably using this mod. However, CraftBook is only available for SMP. How can I get this feature into SSP?

  • And just an FYI, its not really possible to get an SMP mod into SSP unless its also compatible in SSP.. Works this way in both directions unfortunately. – James Feb 29 '12 at 17:02
  • Right. I wasn't looking to get this exact mod, I was looking to get something that adds this feature from the mod. – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 17:03

As of 1.2, you can ignite blocks using a fire charge launched by dispensers, but you will waste a lot of materials.

    Well, sure, a fire charge could be used eventually to start a fire, but there'd be no good way to toggle that fire off using redstone (unless you want to get creative with pistons and water and whatnot) – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 17:37
  • you can turn it off by using flood gate. – IrishPersonality Mar 1 '12 at 5:33
  • which falls under the category of "getting creative with pistons" – Unionhawk Mar 1 '12 at 14:04

You want this mod: Redstone Activated Netherrack, or as you pointed out, Redstoned Netherrack

  • Sounds promising. I'll check it out, and accept if (probably when) it works – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 17:43
  • Sadly, it's a 1.0.0 mod... le sigh *begins a quest for similar mods Here we go! I found one So... should I post that as an answer now, then? – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 22:21
  • Never mind, that mod works such that now I can't place blocks on top of netherrack. Good thing I made a backup. – Unionhawk Feb 29 '12 at 22:34

You could also use flint and steels in a dispenser, if you don't want to use fire charges
