A Sticky Block, eh?


You clicked on this blog, so obviously this concept was interesting enough to grab your attention. The Sticky Block is not another rudimentary block, such as new ores, better crafting tables, etc. The Sticky Block is one block that makes several intuitive changes allowing for versatile use in redstone, rollercoasters, and design. Please excuse my terrible pictures, I'm newly acquainted with my image editing software.

(Credit to buksid8 for making the Sticky Block texture.)




What is a Sticky Block?


A Sticky Block is... A sticky block. The block has the same dimensions like a regular block, but when the player comes into contact with the block, it has the same effect as cobweb, causing slowdown.


To craft a Sticky Block you simply fill the 9x9 Crafting Table grid with Slime Balls. Image

Once you break a Sticky Block its tile drop is the nine initial Slime Balls used to craft it.





Uses of a Sticky Block?


Admittedly, the word "Sticky Block" has been thrown around in the Minecraft community before. However, my iteration of a Sticky Block has many more practical uses than the others. The Sticky Block, when used with a sticky piston, can pull fifteen blocks as well as push them when Sticky Blocks are used along with the piston.

When a Sticky Block is being pushed or pulled by a piston, additional blocks can be added to the side and will be pushed or pulled along with this adhesive block.

Coaster fanatics will love the Sticky Block as they allow you to place rails on walls and ceilings.

Image

Again, this concept has been recycled slightly, but the usual rail-on-wall mod involves new rails, not blocks to keep it stuck to the ceiling or walls. You can also use this block to hold certain items to the wall and ceilings. Gravel and sand will no longer be affected by gravity once this block is applied.

Redstone is also given the "ignore gravity" treatment. (Then again, isn't everything in Minecraft?) The current-carrying dust will be permitted to climb vertically on walls. Repeaters will as well.


Concluding...


Pros:

-The Sticky Block will allow for more complex redstone creations.


-Better coasters.


-More flexibility in designs.


Cons:

-In order to use someone's redstone (or other) creation that uses the Sticky Block they will have to download the mod themselves.

This is just like my submitting, or at least part of it. Great minds think alike, do they not?

Slime balls can be placed not as a block but a flat surface, allowing the sticking of blocks together to make elaborate machines (With rotators and Pistons) Take a look, would ya! At least you have pictures.... #9 Diamond

Thanks! I wanted to create a block beyond the stereotypical, "new ores", or "different colored wool".
