Welcome Ladies and Gentleblocks to a short tutorial that I made on transmitting your redstone signal vertically with the use of top-side halfslabs and glowstone.


Using this method, you can transport your redstone current in a 2x1 area rendering it a very compact and efficient way of making it go up.

Your downwards is wrong too. You don't need a 2x2 you can do 2x1.

I will teach you.

This is an essential thing to redstoning, and I'm glad to see a popular PMCer make it just a littler more well known. Personally I use this everyday :)

There's a problem with this method: The signal can't go infinitely and you can't place a repeater there to make it longer. On the other hand this is probably the fastest vertical RS transmitting. With RS torches the signal can reach the height limit easily but it's slower... Well, it depends if we need it fast or really high :] Nice tutorial.

Thats a very good point. The extra repeater to extend the signal may add another block of width sadly but thats a sacrifice I'm willing to make! Thanks :)

Haha yeah, RS in MC is a matter of compromise... There's yet another way how to send RS signal upwards with using just the RS torches and no dust or repeaters. It's the slowest way but it's 2 wide as well and of course it can go infinitely.

Torches are placed on the sides of the blocks. Especially useful for powering pistons (piston doors etc.)
Nice video, I already knew this vertical redstone technique. It's good that you refresh our minds so that we don't forget that there actually is vertical redstone.

Would this work if you put pistons at every part of the tower? would the signal stop transmitting to the rest of the tower and instead stop at the first piston?

Nice tutorial, been around for a while though... this can also be used to making redstone go up and down using the same line (2 way redsone)

the way to make it better is to add a normal block next to the redstone

[Stone][Glowstone]
[Glowstone][Stone]

config with stepped look as you have on yours, not the best explanation but you have the idea

As I've said to others before, I realise its been around for a while but some people still don't know of the vertical mechanics.

Will try that out!

yeah redstone is a pain sometimes and most people who have trouble understanding it just build it so it works, so this will help them greatly :D

This is decent information, but can you post it in the forum so I can find it easier later on?

If you favourite it, you can look in your favourites later on and find it again!
Yeah, still can't search once you have a bunch in there. Not in any effective way that is, thats why I love the forum.

you can just use a redstone torch tower. I didnt know of the slab one though good to know!
redstone torch towers add delay, didn't watch the video, but I do know my redstone.

He's right. Redstone torches have a delay, this is instantaneous.

yes! yes! excellent, I use the glowstone method practically all the time, skyhigh. Together with half slabs nothing can beat vertical signal transmission :) Awesome!

One could also repeat the signal going up more then 13 blocks :) may be a nice addition to the tutorial.

I find it so funny that you have a statue of yourself on your creative world, because I do too. I think MC needs more gigantic statues... and tutorials like this. Good job, Oli. ;D
