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).

    But redstone dust (non-solid) is not a wire (solid). I had made a suggestion that solves this problem along with others: https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360009229472-Redstone-parity-Solving-quasi-connectivity-by-redstone-dust-block-

    There used to be a mod on java edition that used slime ball and redstone dust to make red stone paste and that could be run up walls not only dust but could also use slime on repeaters and comparators it let you run them up walls or on ceilings

    @WildStrongGamer: As an amateur redstoner I totally agree we need a simpler way to allow redstone signals to go vertically up & down, without tall redstone dust towers/steps

    @ SpecialisToL: I too also came up with an idea some time ago for a craftable block(rod) to allow redstone signals to travel up/down....The 'Redstone rod'/'Redstone Rod Repeater'... which I posted on the minecraft forums

    Maybe you could craft a sort of sticky redstone by combining redstone dust and a slime ball, so it sticks to the block.

    no, only make it so it goes up slime blocks

    For Bedrock edition also.

    To be honest, I don't understand the problem here. The problem is so easy to solve with existing mechanics. In 2xNx1 space (place dust on top slabs alternating on each side for up only, use glass instead for bi-directional). What is it that bothers people so much that it has to be done in 1xNx1 space? There are 3 separate suggestions for this "problem", 4 if you include mine which has an entirely different purpose, and this one has one of the highest number of votes in redstone section. I think the real issue may be lack of explanation for how redstone works, maybe a dedicated part in the help section explaining the basics.

    Redstone vines?

    Redstone should be changed into a wire and be called redstone wire/wires.

    There are a couple options here:
    1. Redstone Paste - Created by mixing redstone and slime balls. Looks the same as normal redstone but with a green hue and can be placed on walls ceilings.

    2. Redstone Wire - Recipe here could be similar or a bit more complex, maybe adding a new ore like copper (copper + redstone + slime balls = redstone wire). Same functionality described above, but the looks would be more like an actual wire with a 2x2 3d model perhaps to provide some shape. Still would have to be placed on a block to work.

    3. Redstone Pipe - This is probably the most advanced implementation of this idea. It would essentially function as its own block but look like a pipe. This way you could route redstone signals in any direction (e.g. up and down now) in a single vertical 1x1 column without using other blocks as support. The use of copper or another sturdy material here would also make a lot of sense.

    How about sticky redstone? Crafted with a slimeball giving it the ability to be placed up the sides of blocks, up walls and possibly ceilings if possible. If redstone was able to be placed on top and bottom, left and right of a block you would have a full-duplex cable with 2 lines of output and 2 of input around one block.

    Sticky redstone!

    True, but Minecraft should add new redstone components such as wires and block spinners and they should make a sticky block that sticks to redtone components only.. because they won't stick to the blocks around elevators

    Dust is dust after all. What we need is a redstone wire, created by somehow combining iron ingots and redstone dust.

    How about wires that you can place inside walls/floors

    This obsolete redstone system has been around for years and never has changed and is not now that they will change it, even if it is not consistent with reality

    You can place it on walls but wouldn't it be cool to place it under a block

    I agree but you should have to add 1 slime to 8 redstone dust and call it redstone paste. also if we could get sticky components even if it only works on top and bottom of blocks that'd be great.

    The easiest solution here is to craft redstone wire using redstone dust and iron that could go vertical. I think the new furnace block has 2 slots and that would be a fine way both to use the block and cook up some redstone wire.

    I like the idea, but I feel like it needs its restrictions. Perhaps small current size, and it must be a special redstone crafted with slimeballs (redstone and slime often go together anyway).

    I posted an idea for this, but it got deleted, so I'll put it here:
    Currently, redstone dust and other components are stuck on the honey block and move along it when pushed/pulled by a piston. If honey is so sticky that redstone dust sticks on it, you should also let it stick on it's sides or even on the bottom of it. This is not overpowered like the RedstonePaste mod, but it will still increase even more the number of redstone possibilities and we won't need to buold those weird redstone torch pillars anymore.

    Really needed. At least for creative players.

    The removed cogs could be used to send signals up walls and such. Cog would be crafted using one Redstone dust surrounded by iron nuggets

    I think we already have this with observers, it's just not quite how you would like it to look like. I like the idea of red stone on walls, but we already have it and it required the community to be creative in order make this happen. I think the appeal to Minecraft is creativity and especially to redstone it's creativity and solving problems. Also I can't imagine redstone on walls since redstone dust is.... well dust.... and sticky stone by now does make a modded feel to it

    Use Cogs, they already were in game and have a texture.

    this should be achieved using sticky redstone; a combination of redstone dust and slime balls.

    Good idea, maybe a different type of redstone?
