Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Partnoids! I’m back =D Today’s video is v3 of my hidden stairs. YouTube removed my v2 model video and turned down my appeal, which is unhelpful and as far as I’m aware completely unjust.

However I decided it was a good excuse for me to go back to the drawing board and create an even better version of what I had! Hope you guys like it. =)

FIX For 1.7.9
Build the system exactly as CNB has then:

1. In the pink circuit at 2:10 add an additional repeater behind this on 1
2. In the pink circuit change the repeater behind the one CNB changed to 4
tick delay (2:14) to 4 tick delay
3. In the green circuit at 3:51 change the timings of this repeater to 2
tick delay instead
4. In the blue circuit at 5:09 change the timings of this repeater to 4
tick delay instead

mickycheese27 says:

1. Do not place the repeater placed at 1:23, instead, replace it with
3. You don’t need to place the torch on the far right of the circuit (1:52)
4.Leave the repeater on the left, at 2:06, as it is (1 tick). Don’t change
it to two ticks.
5. Make the repeater on the left, leading in to the pink block, (2:10) from
3 ticks to 4 ticks
6.Make the front most repeater of the double repeaters (2:12) from 4 ticks
to 2 ticks.
7. Make the back most repeater of the double repeaters from 1 tick to 4

This should give you a block swapper that works with a lever in 1.8.3

Dude come back pls

Can someone help please? I have one of these on my world for Xbox 360 and
it was working perfectly until the other day when the game updated. I tried
recreating it in a creative world thinking that some blocks may have been
moved by the update and it still won’t work. The block swapper is not
longer working properly and one of the blocks in the middle is not being
pushed back up when I close the stairs. I fixed the block swaper by adding
a repeater on 2 ticks delay behind the existing repeater that goes into the
piston to the left of the center piston. But I cannot figure out what is
wrong with the other part. It seems to be that the piston to push the block
out is not receiving power, but I notice that when I go to open the stairs
it pushes out briefly for some reason and then immediately retracts. Does
anyone have any suggestions?

zombiemoat5 says:

Might use this. I think if I do, I’ll end up adding a T-flip-flop

i0am0god0okay0 says:

found a fix for 1.8.1!
If your having an issue with the middle stair block not being replaced when
its forced up then there is a simple fix with 2 blocks and 4 redstone.
the 4th block placed at 4:55 ish doesn’t get power so bring the piece of
redstone that points to the repeater at the blue wool and make a loop of
redstone wire up and point it into the blue wool next to the piston thats
not firing (the 4th block of blue wool he places)
NB make sure this wire doesnt interfere with anything else in the circuit,
thats why i used some blocks to stop it connecting to the other parts.

nicholas minardi says:

The T Flip flop floor get broken in 1.5 because torches change state

Sagnik Das says:

doesnt work

Joshua Buchanan says:

***Fix*** As stated in the comments below for the pink portion, make the
three tick a four, make the repeater behind the four tick repeater four. In
the fix, you want to add one more repeater behind the repeater previously
set to three ticks and connect the redstone. ***Fix*** This is what I did
to fix it.

Mello Crafters says:

uh it doesnt work on multiplayer

MicahVance says:

FIX For Console Update TU21 (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4):

1. Follow Welshi Davies FIX for 1.7.9
1. Build the system exactly has CNB has
it then:
2. In the pink circuit at 2:10 add an
additional repeater behind this on 1
3. In the pink circuit change the repeater
behind the 1 CNB changed to 4 tick
delay (2:14) to 4 tick delay
4. In the green circuit at 3:51 change the
timings of this repeater to 2 tick delay
instead of 3
5. In the blue circuit at 5:09 change the
timings of this repeater to 4 tick delay
instead of 3
2. In the green circuit at 3:14 place Redstone
in place of the first repeater then dig down
beneath the second repeater (and
Redstone connected to it) until you’re one
block beneath the piston when it’s pushed
out, then place Redstone in this dug down
section so that the Redstone line leads
from the green circuit to the block beneath
the last piston when it’s extended. *You
may need to place a block above the
Redstone that replaces the second repeater
in order to prevent it from crossing with the
Redstone that’s replacing the first repeater*
If you’ve done it right you should have both
Redstone lines going into the blocks which
would in turn power the Pistons when they
are extended.
