There was tons of misleading and inaccurate info and I updated this to better reflect on how the game actually works. There is no such thing as redstone ticks, they are just an arbitrary measurement equal to 2 gameticks of length. --User:Alugia7 Alugia7 (talk Alugia7 (talk) 15:50, 27 May 2020 (UTC)


Do rails decrease signal strength? I play pocket edition, so I can't test this. 01:40, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Assuming you are referring to activator and powered rails powering nearby rails, they always power eight rails on either side no matter what level of power is given to them. They do not transfer power in any other way. KnightMiner t/c 03:06, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Denoting circuits not working in MCPE[edit]

Some of the circuits listed on this page, and related redstone pages doesn't work in MCPE (Pocket Edition). Are there an official way of denoting/marking that this circuit doesn't work in MCPE? Along the same train of thoughts, are there a way to mark the alternate version actually functioning in MCPE?

To my knowledge the two primary reasons why circuits doesn't work is related to MCPE not having the quasi-connectivity, and timing differences using repeaters.

I'd just explain it. For example: "This circuit doesn't work in MCPE because of the lack of quasi-connectivity." Then, if there aren't already alternatives in the section, explain alternate ways to accomplish the same thing (perhaps less compactly). —munin · Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Stone Pickaxe JE2 BE2.png · 20:01, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
After first posting here, I saw the {{only}} template, and asked about introducing a {{not}} template in Minecraft_Wiki_talk:Community_portal#Not_in_Pocket_Edition. Wouldn't that be a less intrusive way to comment upon it? Because I believe this applies to quite a few circuits.
I could go and compile which circuits work and do not work on my profile… I just hope I don't get distracted like I always do. I'll also say which MC:PE version I tested each with so it is known to be valid or not in said version. (By the way, pistons fight for priority in a random way, not in a direction-priority way.)

Outdated info?/clarity[edit]

By saying "Inverted Daylight Detectors are not obtainable", is this referring to an item form that you hold in your hand? Otherwise, it should be a removed line in my eyes or should be clarified to say "Inverted Daylight Detectors are not obtainable as an item in Survival" or something along those lines. 18:10, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I'm pretty sure that is what it means. An inverted daylight detector can be obtained as a block by right clicking a regular daylight detector, but when broken it drops a regular daylight detector. I've changed so hopefully it makes more sense now. jahunsbe (talk) 18:17, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

I know it's probably been covered somewhere before, but how far away does the player have to be for redstone to not be responsive to inputs?[edit]

It's simple, with the exceptions of spawn chunks and /forceload or /tickingarea, if a chunk is unloaded, it does not work, if it is loaded, it is responsive.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 02:01, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
