THANK YOU!

Post has been reported succesfully.

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).

    He’s made a few videos and still a great idea! I love redstone as well with added effect. :)!

    Maybe you would be able to dye the redstone into other colors similar to leather armor

    I love the idea but blue redstone sounds weird because someone who doesn't play will say "is it blue or red?" It is a great concept but maybe consider changing it to bluestone or maybe another color?

    It’s very smart for using red stone and bluestone side by side. The only way that you would connect them would be a redstone/bluestone connector. You connect the bluestone on the blue side and the restone on the red side. The connection is started by a lever, button, pressure plate, redstone block or tripwire trap. Because bluestone is also special for being placed in water, it should have longer range before it needs to be extended. This also means that it is harder to find.

    I had the same idea! You beat me to it but hey I still have something to add. There should be Purplestone which can be made by combining redstone and bluestone. It would be a way to connect the two togther in a simple way.

    Ideas like these are very common throughout the internet, but I gotta admit... they are brilliant! (or so they seem...)

    Redstone, like it or not, is simple to begin with but very difficult ( Quoting the popular Youtube Grian: What the heck is a t-flop?) when you want to get complicated.

    As many ideas, it world facilitate red stone as a whole, but this isn't always a good thing.

    Different colored redstone, even though it would make it a heck load easier to make redstone circuits, it would remove some of the fundamentals rules of redstone we've known throughout the years, like ''You can't place two red stone lines next to each other'', now gone.

    So we have put ourselves into a dilemma. Either we prefer easier redstone with more intuitive design, or we like the complicated nature of redstone and we don't won't it simplified, rather redefined and radical.

    Because of the above, I am leaning against this idea.

    This is a good idea, but I think it shouldn't be blue, since the blue light hurts people's eyes.

    I personally wouldn't like that because the fun of redstone is the problem solving of how to compact the redstone build, bluestone making that a bit easy then anytime you build a working timer it wouldn't be amazing to others because redstone timers need to have lines next to each other and thats why making timers is so hard, but bluestone would make that super easy where anyone could make a timer, making it not fun for the major redstone people. its like revealing a magic trick to the world that big magicians love to use.

    Coloring redstone is much easier than adding bluestone with ores, lamps, comparators, etc. 

    So, colored redstone should not have extra repeaters, comparators, blocks, torches, and no own pistons, dispensers, observers, sticky pistons, droppers, doors, trapdoors, note blocks or tnt and...

    ...all pressure plates, all buttons, daylight deterctors, levers and tripwire hooks should give out redstone signals for all colors. 

    And: There should be different colored lamps created with and for each different color.

    This would be helpful to determine which circuit and avoid it from getting together ^_^

    This needs to be in 1.14 huge fan of this idea!

    I like that idea but maybe call it something else such as Moonstone.

  • Avatar

    I like the idea but to balance it out bluestone should break in air and will have this recipe r=redstone-dust l=lapis

    That's a good idea Using the April Fools "Bluestone" And the Idea Of "Leading It Under Water" Is A Good Concept

    I like the idea of working in water and breaking in air just one question: if redstone breaks in water and bluestone or moonstone or however you want to call it (I suggest aguastone) breaks in air how are we going to combine both because levers, presure plates and string break underwater. Hete the idea of it not combining, for it I propose a new tipe of block (also an idea of mumbo jumbo) that you place redstone on top and it dosen't combine.

    This would overcomplicate things.. Better to stick with one kind "redstone" and make it easier to have parallel lines. Maybe some kind of "cheap repeater" that just transfers the signal in one direction without delay.

    Secondary electricity should logically be made of IRON or GOLD.
    But if it's on powder state, it can't be underwater. ;)
    Iron bar could already make the redstone signal goes vertically. ;)

    This is one idea I don't agree with. While certainly functional, I don't think the idea of different colors of redstone is very creative or unique. I would prefer more redone logic blocks and other ideas such as placing redstone on walls and underneath blocks to expand redstone's potential further without wandering into "mod" territory.

    Perhaps it would be harder to find or collect, anyway love the idea!

    The idea for bluestone/moonstone is quite intriguing, I've always wanted to see a new type of Redstone get added to Minecraft, however the idea of it breaking in air and being placeable underwater seems a little unprecedented, how will you even activate it ? Hmmm Ah I know,  place bluestone underwater, and below the very first line of the circuit, place a bluestone block below the bluestone dust, as for the repeaters however... Bluestone repeaters shall be waterproof too, I would also wish to have some water functionalities or water machines that can interact with bluestone, not ordinary pistons or anything, let bluestone have its very own functional specialty.

    I disagree that it should be able to go underwater, instead have water break it, like normal Redstone, or ONLY have it able to be placed underwater.

    Bluestone should get its own ore.

    You could make it occur in coral  biomes as a rare coral, type or in the end

    How about Dyed Redstone? 1 of 16 colors of Redstone (and it's tools) each don't interact with other colors. They just avoid each other. Default Redstone is colored blood orange and it can interact with colors. Example: Green Repeaters only activates Green Redstone and Pink Redstone Torches only activates Pink Redstone.

    Default Redstone, I admit it is boring, but it would be awesome with colored ones. I don't mind 2 colors of Redstone. Default Redstone in my concept is neutral to activate with or to be activated by colored Redstone.

    Redstone Crosser: Any 2 redstone colors can cross to the same color, like bridges or 2 corners, but if crossed, it loses 2 power (RedstoneDustPowerBeforeTouch - 2)

    We all know this April fools joke.

    But a great idea nevertheless. Voted.
