Want a Built-In Power Line to your own Village or City? Well you came to the right place! Building a Power Line is a simple process. All you need is:

  • Some blocks to build a power line
  • A house for your lights
  • A Lever for the light switch
  • 1 Sticky Piston - Per House
  • 1 Repeter - Per House
  • And some RedStone!

Step 1: Make a House with a Lever and Some Stuff!

Lay down a Power Line with a RS Torch, this will be your power source. And where your house is, make sure to add some Lights with Redstone.

Step 2: Add a Sticky Piston with a Block onto It. Make Sure to Wire Redstone from the Lever Inside to a Repeater Hooking to the Block from the Sticky Piston.

Put some RedStone from the block going out (Block from the Piston)
As shown from the picture.

Step 3: Finally, Hook the RedStone from the Block to the Lights Above the Little Building.

Each Time the lever is on the lights will come on and when the lever is off, the lights will go off.

Power Line Is on, the Lights Hooked to the Lever Is On.

If Power Line Is Damaged, Light Switch Won't Work

This Setup Can Be Easily Installed Under Ground (1 Layer Below the Surface)

I Made My Own Version:

I put a Power Line in a Little Village I created.

This is Insanely Simple to create! Plus you don't need much Materials =)

Cute, Kurt! This is a great way to think about redstone when it comes to trying to relate it to real life power.

While in Minecraft, power sources are only one block in size, in reality, it takes big power plants to generate the sort of power that's easily at our disposal. This way, you can pay homage to the reality of electricity!

Hey kurt please dont feel like im raing on your parade but you can actually modify your line by placing redstone on the redstone lamp and have it all turn on at night by using a daylight sensor invertor.
