    Minecraft logic: to turn water into ice, you need direct sunlight

      @Maxwell Li so we shower sunlight to make ice in the refrigerator...... that is something i did not know XD

      to NOT turn water to ice, put a block on top of it.


      @Maxwell Li depends on the type of cave and how deep it is, and most caves humans have explored aren't that hot

    The ice door could work with armour stands equipped with frost walker boots, being moved around by water sources with light on specific places as not to freeze the path but instead the water below 🤓

      @Callum Hurd I did a tiny bit of research. When the ice first appears it is unaffected by light, but it will melt faster with greater light. So as long as your door is in a dark area, the door will stay frozen for a long time when you want it to be closed. Their is one other problem with this idea, but I have a solution. Rather than moving the armor stands with water and risk freezing that water, you could place the armor stand with a dispenser then apply boots on it, and when you want the door to melt you shoot arrows (from ANOTHER dispenser) at the armor stand to break it and have hoppers pick up the items.

      @DHans Since being pedantic is the theme here, original commenter said "sticky pistons", not "a sticky piston".

    • DHans

      @Anwitha Ponnapati But its not still not a piston. Its a sticky piston. Sticky piston =/= piston. Theres a whole nother word in it.


      Exactly I need to come look at this comment and I still knew that

    The first attempt would probably work if you control the tnt falling. It falling to the side or backwards is probably the reason it stopped being reliable.

  • Raze_4

    This just gave me an idea for a hidden door in the side of a base to access a hidden basement. Use a trapdoor as part of the trim on the bottom of the house, use a piston to drop a couple blocks in the wall so you have a 1X1 crawlspace into your hidden room. I'm sure this has been done, but it's still fun when you come up with this kind of idea on your own.

    Have the dispensers use sand. Have a very delayed minecart with a chest or something that sits under and then waits like 5 seconds with repeaters. Then they fall. Have 2 torches after that and put them on top of 2 droppers then bring them back up with the sand

  • Ben The G

    For the door instead of stone or shulker boxes you should use something with a lower blast resistance like netherack or wool

  • Laura Mitzenmacher
    Laura Mitzenmacher

    I mean it also could have just been dispensers putting lava instead of water that turns to ice, especially because that one didn't work. But yeah people don't like walking into lava and that definitely could have been the whole door, no iron door required

  • Guyatano Savia

      @MyFootWasTaken ⨷ yes but the point of the video is to use redstone. if you use redstone to power the command block then it is still technically a redstone door. otherwise if the command block was always active it wouldn't be redstone then. you said it yourself, command blocks are different to redstone
