NOTICE

Are you sure you want to report this?

When you are making your redstone suggestions, please note that Java and Bedrock will not have the exact same the same redstone systems - this would require redoing redstone system completely on one platform or the other. The two systems are functionally different and are going to stay that way. Please be sure to tag your suggestions with (Java) or (Bedrock).

    It's a dust btw but it could work bcus the dust and it's electricity thing makes it stickable to walls

    Or instead a new type of redstone wire, maybe it can be crafted with iron nuggets, and could be for up walls and underwater.

    Maybe instead we should use the new copper material to make wires that can go up walls through a combination of copper and redstone there are already several posts on this, but I will still say what I think the basic functioning could be. Copper wires would be an item made from a combination of redstone and copper ingots. They would have the ability to stack up vertically as well as go horizontally. They will not directly connect to redstone allowing for them to be placed side by side with redstone without either effecting the other(similar to the slimeblock and honey block mechanics). If you do want to connect them you would use a new item known as a copper outlet. What this would do is allow you to convert a redstone signal into a copper signal and vice versa. Basically you would place redstone dust on one side, and copper wire on the other. Upon a signal traveling through one the copper outlet would also send it through the other.

    With the idea of copper wires in mind however that still leaves some issues and possible need for contraptions that regular redstone already has. So, we would also likely need some other new items similar to a redstone repeater and comparitor only copper based.

    la idea de la redstone en la pared es muy buena, facilitaria muchos mecanismos, pero que tal si se añadiera de nuevo un item antiguo, la tuerca, mi idea es que las tuercas conduzcan la redstone por las paredes, poco mas la verdad, creo que seria una alternativa muy buena ya que la verdad no me gustaria el ver un polvo de redstone en la pared :)

    One way to make this feasible (so that the dust part is kept) would be to mix red stone dust with honey or slime. this would also make not washed away by water, and maybe movable by pistons. I order to balance this, though (as a redstoner I hate to say this) the redstone signal distance could be halved. E.G. from 15 blocks to 7 or 8. Additionally, this "honeyed" redstone could be made into torches.

    What about on celling's too?

    And maybe make the same with other redstone components like repeaters and comparators.

    No, I think that if wall redstone was added, it's get rid of the creativity required for redstone machinery

    Hey this is a good idea, but maybe instead of reds tone, it copper wire. (See my post on it)

    Perhaps the Sculk blocks (the ones other than Sculk Sensors) could contribute to that somehow? Or maybe redstone dust just sticks to Honey and Slime Blocks both vertically and from below. The later is a simple concept that is fairly balanced.

    What if you could "redstone-log" (for lack of a better word), like waterlogging, where you can place redstone dust on a wall, which would add a small glint to the block, and allow vertical redstoning

    This is this is the thing I’ve wanted for years PLEASE.

    This would be cool but it would unbalance minecraft and we already have skulk sensors

    i say no, this would largely defeat the purpose of many redstone techniques and could break existing stuff.

    I just submitted two idea today that would give you this. I was thinking we could use the new waxing mechanic to pull this off. Mix Redstone Dust and beeswax to make Redstone Wax. It doesnt require making any new blocks it just changes the property of the block to Redwaxed_Block when you read the description and it only powers other adjacent redwaxed blocks or adjacent Redstone accessories (pistons, repeaters, Redstone Dust, lamps etc). So basically you would use any block that can be waxed and Redstone powered and build whatever. It's perfect! All directions of travel: check. Selective powering: check. Hidden/aesthetically pleasing: check. I was thinking the repeator could be mixed with wax too to create a Repeater Redwax and when applied to a block that block will act like a repeater. It can be set by right clicking and it will have Redstone ore particles on for an amount of seconds equivalent to the level. I also submitted an idea to use the amethyst and a Redstone torch to make a Redstone Laser that can power the first opaque block it hits. It can travel through transparent blocks, has range of 16 or 32 blocks but will be interrupted by players, mobs, or other opaque blocks. I'm awaiting approval on those suggestions to be posted but I think it's plausible...

    I like this idea but it would need a bit of work to implement, maybe they can only travel up certain blocks or you need to hold them up with string somehow. it would certainly make string more useful

    i like the idea but it should be solved with a special cable that can be connected to the redstone

    Technically you can make this with glass because it isn't solid. However, this can only make redstone go up (in java edition). I have done this technique in bedrock edition.

    Isnt it why we have sculk sensors now?

    Please see my Redwax submission! I think it would be the best way to implement what you are asking!

    What about sticky redstone or putting redstone on slime/honey that would make sense

    What if you could combine red stone with copper, making copper wire. It could climb walls.
