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).

    The title made me think you wanted redstone dust on wall blocks.

    The easiest way to make vertical redstone instead of redstone placed on walls is to use cromson and weeping vine-like cables. They eliminate the placement of redstone toches and blocks on top of each other and allow instant ticking of redstone power.

    The different directional growth of these vine-like cables affect the direction of redstone transmitted wither downward or upward.

    Easy solution to the whole Redstone dust is dust, a new item created by combining Redstone with copper, could be a wire or something more "minecrafty" but this could help the vertical redstone idea, and make more uses for copper

    You can make redstone signals go up by stacking slime blocks on top of a sticky piston with a redstone block on top, not seeing the problem.

    hello. sorry to tell you that the redstone is not wires, but radiation, but I still support your idea, as it would be easier to use the redstone.

    actually... now that we have iron chains, perhaps they vould be a good conductor of power on both platforms  ;)

    Instead of restone dust it could be redtone wire that is created with new copper wire made from copper.

    Yes please! And work down too; making glass staircases or a large downward staircase or a big delay downard torch curcuit is not fun at all and I think is nothing more than a limitation that does nothing good but create badness in creations (whether that be making the contraption larger, more expensive, have more delay, etc)

    This is an amazing idea. Yes, you can "solve with existing mechanics", but this will add a few things:

    1. Make redstone more approachable. Redstone towers going up and down are not easy for beginners to figure out, and redstone dust blocks would help with that.

    2. It would have more capabilities and flexibility. A redstone dust block might be pushable by a piston or used for something else. It's up to the player to decide. 

    3. it would make redstone easier to hide. Whether it's for traps and secrets or just to look pretty without the wiring showing, redstone surreptitiousness is very important. the 2xNx1 is a bit bigger and can make things harder to hide. if you add redstone dust blocks, it will be smaller.

    Maybe they could be redstone wires so they can travel up and down and around and through blocks with a clean look and it could add another use for copper.
