Minecraft Xbox/Playstation: TU20 Redstone Update

The Redstone Update is the name for Minecraft version 1.5, a major update released on Wednesday, March 13, 2013. Among the main changes were a number of new redstone-related blocks, including the comparator, hopper, dropper, daylight sensor, trapped chest, weighted pressure plates and block of redstone. A new decorative block – block of quartz, crafted from nether quartz – was also added. Also included was a scoreboard system, a new texture pack format and a lighting engine optimization. The Redstone Update was announced at the Future Updates with the Minecraft PC Team and The Future of Mod API talks at MineCon 2012.

The redsone update coming to the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 is some awesome news for the people that are creating a lot of awesome machines etc. with redstone, for map makers and for all the players because with all of the stuff that comes with the Redstone Update a lot of new awesome Adventure, Parkour and Hunger Games maps can be made. The items that we got with the Redstone Update on Minecraft for the PC were all redstone-related blocks, including the comparator, hopper, dropper, daylight sensor, trapped chest, weighted pressure plates and block of redstone and one new decorative block which is the block of quartz, which we already have on Minecraft for the Xbox and Playstation. So 4jStudios already have used blocks from the redstone update from the PC in a big update for the Xbox and Playstation. A redstone comparator is a block used in redstone circuits to maintain, compare, or subtract signal strength, or to measure certain block states, a hopper is a block that can be used to catch item entities, or to transfer items into and out of containers, The dropper is a block that can be used to eject items, or push items into another container, A daylight sensor is a block that outputs a redstone signal based on sunlight, A trapped chest is a non-solid block that can be used to store items and which produces redstone power when opened, A weighted pressure plate is a non-solid block that can be used to measure the number of entities on it so is pretty much the same as a wooden or stone pressure plate and A block of redstone acts as a piston-movable redstone power source which cannot be turned off. So these are the blocks that we might be getting in the Next Big Update on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4!
