Lag Free Piston/Minecart Lighthouse.

#1TDP_EquinoxPosted 8/17/2013 9:49:21 PM
as the title says, i have made a lag free lighthouse using a crap tonne of pistons and redstone, but have eliminated the use of a clock. now this design is nothing new to me, but i recently (as of about ten seconds ago) made it lag free. even in mulitplayer!.
i know, i know, you dont believe me, but i cant make a video proving it (unless i point a webcam at my tv and do it that way lol), i can however, get you to join if you dont believe me. and a tutorial may be in the future. but anyways, i just wanted to brag.
so, yeah.... brag

so you're using the minecart as the clock?

i usually make a torture device with that system. i make it set off doors or noteblocks then lock someone in a box and leave them there.

when i hook up my (equally crappy) dvr i could do one. or maybe just figure out how to make the webcam a little better, (ie lighting, framerate) but i would be happy to do a tutorial.

That's actually pretty cool... much cooler than I was expecting, in terms of function, from an Xbox Edition Lighthouse.

I might have to re-think my "I don't like relying on Rails and Minecarts to power anything, because they'll sometimes stall out" way of thinking... because yours actually looks like it works quite well.
