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).

Tell Redstone dust where to point (or not point)

    That would be useful.  To have the ability to say "no, I don't want you connecting there" and "Yes, connect to this thing that doesn't normally cause a connection".

    I'm not sure I understand your described interface, though.

    You interact with it like a repeater, but the direction that is affected is the one you are facing. For example if you are facing north the dust in the north direction will either connect or disconnect depending on what it was before

    Yeah, I do think that it would be annoying to edit long lines of redstone but it would be similar to placing a long line of four delay repeaters. There are ways to build your circuit to avoid the annoyance but I would much rather have the pain of adjusting the lines than not having the option at all.

    I was building some redstone contraptions and I fond it useful to place blocks on redstone dust when I wanted it above. If this idea was implemented it would possibly make building a little annoying because of the inability to place blocks as easily and just accidentally clicking on the redstone. Maybe it should only work if you are holding redstone dust.

    I actually thought of an idea similar to this, but it's actually a block with 6 redstone torches in it (looks similar to repeater and comperator as it is plate like), there's one torch on each direction of the 4 sides of the block and 2 in the center, one of the center torches is higher than the others to represent upwards while the other one downwards, now whichever torch you are "lighting" whenever the block recieves a signal it'll send signal to all the directions that the lightened torches face, it also maintains the same signal power it recieved.

    I thought the best way to craft it is 3 (any) stone blocks at the bottom (like for repeater and comperator) and 6 redstone torches at the rest of the slots (which fits the exact amount of redstone torches in this block).

    I tried to suggest it here but it appears an idea similar to it was already suggested, that's how I came here.

    This would be a wonderful addition that would also satisfy all the hype about redstone wires next to each other. Also powering a line of pistons on the same level for example wouldn't also need a line of repeaters and would make contraptions a bit faster.
