Thought I’d just make a quick post showing what I’m working on at the moment in Minecraft – an Automatic Minecart Station. What it basicly does is, when you stand on the first pressure plate a cart is sent up and sits on the second plate. Then when you enter the minecart the second pressure plate activates and sends a booster cart to send you on your way. There is also a hole where you push the minecart back into the system.
Here are some pics:
Standing on the plate in the picture above sends the main cart onto the platform.
Then sitting in the cart sends the booster on the other track.
This is where the cart returns into the station, you then push the cart down the chute and back into the system.
This is where all the carts are eternaly boosted around until they as sent back above ground when the pressure plates are activated.
If anybody wants me to make a more in-depth look/tutorial above the mechanism please leave a comment and I will see what I can do.
