crafting trapped chest
Ingredients: Chest and Tripwire Hook.
Description: A trapped chest is a block that stores items and which produces redstone power when opened. It can be visually distinguished from normal chests by a red coloration around the latch.

Trapped chests can be obtained by crafting, or by breaking previously-placed trapped chests.

To remove a trapped chest, mine it. Trapped chests can be broken using anything, but an axe is the fastest.

If the trapped chest contains items, the items will also be dropped when it is broken. If one half of a large trapped chest is destroyed, the corresponding items from the destroyed trapped chest will be dropped and the remaining trapped chest will continue to function as a small trapped chest.

Trapped chests can be used as containers and as redstone components.

To place a trapped chest, use the Place Block control on the face of a block adjacent to the space the trapped chest should occupy.

Redstone Comparator

Ingredients: Redstone Torches, Nether Quartz and Stone.
Description: A redstone comparator is a block used in redstone circuits to maintain, compare, or subtract signal strength, or to measure certain block states (primarily the fullness of containers).

To remove a redstone comparator, mine it. A redstone comparator can be broken instantly with anything, and drops itself as an item.

A redstone comparator will also be removed and drop itself as an item:

  • If its attachment block is moved, removed, or destroyed.
  • If water flows into its space.
  • If a piston tries to push it or moves a block into its space.
  • If lava flows into a redstone comparator’s space, the redstone comparator will be destroyed without dropping itself as an item.

A redstone comparator can be placed on the top of any opaque block with a solid full-height top surface (including upside-down slabs and upside-down stairs), as well as on hoppers. To place a redstone comparator, use the Place Block control.

Description: The minecart with TNT is a block of TNT inside a minecart.

Minecarts with TNT can be retrieved just like other minecarts, by attacking it while in Survival or Adventure mode.

Minecart with TNT will detonate on these conditions:

  • It moves over a powered Activator Rail (after 4 second delay like the TNT block).
  • It is hit by a fire charge (also with a 4 second delay).
  • It hits the ground with a downward velocity of it falling more than three blocks, unless landing on any form of rail.
  • It is destroyed while in motion. (Does not explode if destroyed by a player in Creative mode.)
  • It is destroyed by fire, lava or an explosion.
  • It turns on a curved track too fast, with a solid block or entity located beside the track (in the previous movement direction).
  • It is hit by a flaming arrow. (Explosion size is dependent on the speed of the arrow).
  • It is pressed into a block or entity and has velocity.

Ingredients: Cobblestone and Redstone.
Description: The dropper is a block that can be used to eject items, or push items into another container.

Droppers can be mined using any type of pickaxe. If mined without a pickaxe, it will drop nothing.

A dropper can be used as a container or as a redstone component to move items.

To place a dropper, use the Place Block control. A dropper can be placed so that its output faces in any direction, including up or down. When placed, the dropper’s output will face in the direction it was placed from.

A dropper cannot be moved by pistons, water and lava will flow around a dropper.

Ingredients: Glass, Nether Quartz and Wood Slabs.
Description: A daylight sensor is a block that outputs a redstone signal based on sunlight (or lack thereof).

Daylight sensors can be broken fairly easily by hand, but can be broken faster by using an axe. Inverted daylight sensors cannot be collected, they will drop a regular daylight sensor.

Ingredients: Iron Ingots, Sticks and Redstone Torch.
Description: An activator rail is a type of rail that can activate certain minecarts.

Activator rails can be crafted and previously-placed activator rails can be broken with bare hands or any tool, dropping themselves as items.

An activator rail can be broken with any tool, dropping itself as an item, but a pickaxe is fastest. To break an activator rail, mine it.

An activator rail will also be removed and drop itself as an item:

  • If the block beneath it is moved, removed, or destroyed.
  • If water flows into the activator rail’s space.
  • If a piston tries to move it vertically, or if there is no block beneath it at the new position after a horizontal move.

If lava flows into an activator rail’s space, the activator rail will be destroyed without dropping itself as an item.

An activator rail can be used as a rail and as a redstone component.
