Has anyone managed to recreate the house/building type thing that Jeb_ showed in the piston video? I'm about to give it a go and figure it out, or make one slightly different that works the same, but I was just wondering if anyone has already done it.
-facepalm- It amazes me how uninformed people can be, yet still go around saying what they want as fact. Maybe before saying something about the Piston mod actually try it? Or at least read the ****ing release topic for it? >.> You're just spreading your ignorance.
I've worked out in my head (dont have the mod) how to make a 2x2 door like this, only with all four pieces sliding back and then sliding to the side in a different direction. Kinda hard to describe, but basically:
slides back one square, then turns into:
where the stone slabs are where the blocks that make up the door used to be.
Cant wait to make one out of gold blocks for my Japanese monastery on Pandora.
Finally managed to get a working replica using the mod. It took quite a bit of work to get all the pistons functioning properly while still being reasonably compact. I hope the official pistons aren't as buggy as the mod ones; I don't know how many times I had a design that looked like it aught to work yet one or two pistons would fail to extend or retract.
