So I have 500 meters of rail laid with a powerrail and a redstone torch every 25 rails. The first 7 rails are powered rails. I place the minecart, get in and nothing happens. I just sit there. I do have a redstone torch at the beginning of the track. If I jump out of the cart the friggin cart takes off and I can barely catch it. So how the hell do I actually get going? What would even be the point of having regular rails if you need powered ones to move?
Genitalia abuse and frequent vomiting are popular favorites
You could even do PPPPPPPRPB (P = powered, R = Rail, B = Block). Have the long string of them in an always-on position using a redstone torch and have the one rail next to the block toggle-able with a button on a wall next to it.
Haha. Been playing Minecraft on the PC version since September 2010. Other guys who come to this board from the PC board who help out a lot are Gastroid and Marbiaach, keep an eye out for their posts too.
