    i think this will make the redstone/interactive/technical parts of minecraft too complicated. Also would they just be like string and you cant place things on top?

    Sounds like rejected Bluestone, but really better! Cool idea, i like it.

    That would be cool, but it would kinda remove the need for redstone. I dont think mojang would add anything like that, at least, not yet.

    I think they should connect like rails and should have a higher signalstrengh Like 30 or something like that.

    I was thinking that copper wires would be like redstone, but carry a signal over a longer distance. Maybe copper and redstone are combined in a crafting recipe that results in a wire that transmits long-distance signals.

    Copper wires should be crafted with bothe copper and redstone. However they should be able to stack up unlike redstone. Additionally they will not connect to redstone unless they go through a particular device. This device would be called a copper outlet in which one side redstone could go in and copper could come put the other allowing you to convert redstone signals into copper signals. And vice versa. This would allow you to have both circuits side by side in a build without effecting each other. This would also allow for vertical redstone signals. However copper wires will be more expensive than redstone. When you mine redstone you get a lot of it, but not so much in terms of copper ingots. Copper will also be what is needed to connect to certain other copper type devices, and vice versa with redstone. For example you would need redstone to connect to a skulk sensor.

    be GREAT to be used as light pole wire(s)

    it should attach to redstone blocks

    Just how honey blocks are to slime blocks, copper wire could just be a secondary redstone to make more compact contraptions. I don't think it needs to be more than just a secondary redstone, for balance it might have less signal strength than redstone. I like the idea of it conducting heat// it working underwater like you brought up.

    Perhaps for under water usage you would need to wax them. That or the current become far weaker when they are there.

    Great idea bro. i will support and i need another feather for the copper that is copper wire should not take any space because the wire will be so thin and if it takes space it wont be nice

    copper wire should be able to be placed on walls as well as be placed in mid air. Can be connected to redstone repeaters, comparators, and other redstone blocks but not redstone dust

    If this were to be added, I would prefer if it was as a copper wire block, push-able by pistons, and therefore useful in flying contraptions and such.

    No Stoves please. Also DELETE your advertisement for this post on the Icicles page, it's not cool to put up random advertisements for votes -_-

    Im getting vibes from the Immersive Engineering over here. I love the idea, but what else would they do besides being vertical red stone? in mods, there are blocks to be powered, and ways to generate power.  without creating a completely new power system, separate from red stone, I'm not sure how much they would add to Minecraft. I love the Idea however.

    Si hay electricidad en minecraft sería muy muy mod

    Maybe the copper could transmit lightning since there was a lighting rod added.

    What if it worked like redstone, but vertically, kinda like how real wires work, and live wires shock you? Also insulation made of leather.

    I dont think they should add a new redstone

    I agree with  Joseph Rahner, Tim Campbell & partially CrazyGurN2o posts

    In Tims suggestion - 'Why not use Lightning conductor as Copper wire', imho makes perfect sense. If these conduct lightning & produces a electrical signal then why can't it transmit redstone signals from other sources like switches

    In Josephs post of 'using a block to allow redstone dust to connect to Copper wire' -
    Why not power 'copper wires' by running a redstone dust line/Repeator into a copper block with the rod attached to it ?

    In CrazyGuyN2o - 'Use redstone & copper to make copper wire for longer signal strengths' I partially agree on.. Not the part about 'longer signal strength' but using redstone & copper to make Copper wires however if Mojang makes Lightning rods conduct redstone signals this is really not required

    Maybe have them crafted with copper and redstone and act like a kinda of waterproof redstone that doesn't interact with the normal redstone.

    I think it should be able to connect to redstone devices and redstone dust, that way it doesnt get to complicated. Also the ability to put a copper wire line next to a redstone line without them connecting and getting complicated like how redstone does right now. This would make redstone builds much more compact

    I think there should be two types of wire insulated and not insulated. the not insulated wire gives you knockback and damage while insulated does not. slime should be used to craft insulated wire
