    PistonsExtended -Extend Your Pistons

    Version 1.4.0

    This plugin allows you to define pistons that are crushers that crush blocks and if you left click a piston with a slime ball you can toggle the pistons stickiness. To define a piston as a crush you attach a sign to the piston on any of the 5 sides that has the first line of [crush] & Place bedrock i block away from piston like so: P_[bedrock] where P is the Piston _ is the block you want to crush. The second third and fourth are used to define what blocks can and cannot crush anyone of the lines can have a [NOT]
    and that means that any of the data values on the sign are not to be crushed any and items that aren't on the list will be crushed an example sign would be

    [Crush]​
    [NOT]​
    35,46,20​
    50,76,1​
    that sign would mean all blocks except for cloth,tnt,glass,torch,redstone torch, and stone can be crushed​

    Nice one! I love having the crushing capability like the original piston mod :)

    I sent you a video I made of an Item factory that uses the 'crushing' ability and the piston dupe glitch; feel free to use it;).

    All Six pieces of cake For this one :D: [cake][cake][cake][cake][cake][cake]

    How about adding the ability to change the length? Maybe set it up so that the length is based on the amount of iron you use when crafting the piston. ex. 2 pieces of iron would allow the piston to extend 2 blocks, 10 would allow it to extend 10 blocks. etc. etc. with a max amount set thru a config file...

    Actually, if sticky pistons could be made to retract open pistons you could make them extensible. Eg. you could place 10 sticky pistons in a row and place redstone such that as the first extended the second was powered and extended, etc.

    Hmm... that wouldn't work well for a raised bridge though - perhaps allowing the redstone current to "flow through" the pistons to the next (only when an extended piston is touching the back of another piston? With a customisable delay?

    edit: Oh, do pistons use their "color" value at all? If not, you could use this value to craft custom pistons.

    pistons do in fact use there data value for orintation

    Ah, of course. Next question - given that there are only six orientations what happens with color values greater than 6? I know with wool it just loops through the 16 colors so you can use the more significant bits for other purposes if you wanted - could pistons be the same?

    If you make the pistons extendable by hitting them with a block, make another block so that you can decrease the length, and I would add a config option so the admin can set a max length ( Don't want someone setting up a 20x20 wall of pistons that will extend out 500 blocks :) ).

    crush length?

    You talking about using signs to set the length? That would work to, but that could get ugly and limit your ability to place other blocks around the piston, I like your original idea of hitting the piston with an iron block.

    ok
    and how would you feel about using a sign to make a piston that dupes if it can be disabled with permissions/config

    I'am sure that would come in handy for something....
