Super Compact Piston Gate (Portcullis) v4.0 Tutorial

by Henness0666 • 118,465 views

Bug Fix: http://youtu.be/TYddDj0R8tQ Schematic: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/13345774/Gatev4.schematic Super compact version of my piston gate, so you don't have to use as many resources when using it...

Does this work in minecraft 1.8 ?

I think you should make a TNT express train that can move

Umm so i have a problem on the bottom part the top layer of pistons (non-sticky) they go up then stay there because the layer under them doesn't pull them back down how do i fix that?
Report spam or abuse
thanks for putting fix in desc. :D

I tried building this gate only half the length(4 blocks wide). i cant get the bottom pistons to move right.. instead of pushing up and then going down, they go up, down, up, down, up, down.  Any1 know what to do? :s

+Fredrik Kvalvik this doesnt work on 1.8+ it's why
Report spam or abuse
to make the gate work you just have to change the timing of the mono stable circuits to 4 ticks, and then the backside blue layer needs extended to at least 2 ticks so that the pistons have time to return to their normal state and extend again also it is imperative that you use stone buttons and not wooden buttons because wood buttons stay pressed for longer and interferes with the circuit

Hey any idea why gate no longer works after new update?

I have one built from a long time ago and it still works..im just not sure if itll work if itll work if you build it now.. minecraft can be strange like that but you wont know till you try

i need help with the red circuit on pc can you join and help
Report spam or abuse
prob cuz of updates: those who have trouble => timers have to beset differently! (@ 03:38) on the blue circuit that powers the magenta circuit (on the back), there are 4 repeaters but you need 6 delays (so just set any one to 3) (@ 04:25) the first repeater placed in the green circuit has to be 4 instead of 3 (@ 09:27) the middle one of the repeaters on the purple upper rows (has to be 4 instead of 3) so the beams are 1 - 4 - 3 in downward order :)  hope it helps!! thanks to @spork mork

This works for tu17 xbox one but mine is only 3 pistons long with a clean animation no changes at all really simple
Report spam or abuse
Mine isn't working on xbox 360 version. The bottom layer of sticky pistons on the bottom section will extend, but the second layer of stickies will not extend.
Report spam or abuse
Having some issues on PC, the bottom pistons (not sticky) aren't dropping, thus leaving the gravel one level higher than it should be, and the top circuit isn't working at all. Used the fixes Jelle posted while I've been making it, any ideas?

did you try the bug fix link in the description? I saw the same problem happen in that video (it's near the end)

Thanks for this I find your method of teaching this build to be really clear and simple.

iv fixed the issue with it not working if it is with the bottem port of the 2 top piston not coming all the way down go back to the step of 4:06 when he places the 3 repeaters set any of those repeaters to 3 ticks (idk how they work really its the tick before the last one ) this should fix the bottom part

It's been working for me fine. Just one issue with the two last granite blocks not falling all the way back down after opening. It only happens when there are many people on the server.

I just finished this on the latest Tekkit, except mine is only 6 wide and the gate is only three fences high. It works like it should without any modifications. I just wish it didn't take up so much room.
Report spam or abuse
Do you need to use fences for the portcullis? You can use iron bars right?

Your colour coding makes it remarkably easy to follow thanks
Report spam or abuse
This took me forever. I have minecraft for the 360. apparently, you cant stack redstone on top of glowstone. so, it took me an extra hour to figure out a way for the torches to work without giving up on it. otherwise, great tutorial. the color coding of currents is a BIG plus in watching you and building, makes it so much easier

i must be doing something wrong at the 7min mark, i've done it 3 times already. the top set of pistons don't get pulled down. also, does it work if you cut down the width to 5 piston long? because i've tried it with 5, the left most piston gets stuck at the top must magenta block line.

I have the same problem, though I'm building it in multiplayer. :(

Hey nevermind man. I built one then other day based off of someone else's idea. No sand or gravel, one button on either side of the gate that opens and closes the gate, and a locking mechanism.

The ''Pistons'' are actually a T-Flip-Flop circuit, They only work when positioned at north or north-west when you're looking at them from 2 blocks away

this doesnt work on 1.4.7 cuz i have to make a smaller gate for it to work and it doesnt shut all the way please help.
Report spam or abuse
I did until 7:25 in the vid. However when i clicked the buttons, the pistons went up and did not come down. It got stuck above. It seemed that the 2nd row of sticky pistons did not work. Any way to fix that? As i'm pretty sure i did exactly what the video did
Report spam or abuse
can you use the iron bars with this?
Report spam or abuse
Figured it out! go to the bug fix video in description do the part with extending it out 1, but then on the blue circuit dont add the repeaters just mess with the timing on the repeater the change the first one to 3 ticks and then its fully fixed!
Report spam or abuse
This gate will work with 1.5 as long as you make two changes in the settings of two repeaters. You must first implement the bug fix for the monostable circuit which he linked to in the description. Change the repeater in the monostable (green circuit) facing away from the rest of the gate to 4 ticks. Next, on any of the 3 repeaters placed at the 4:06 mark in this video, add 2 ticks. This will make the last piece of gravel lag for a split second when retracting but at least the gate will work.

shut up and do what u named the video

Hey man I love the portcullis gate, however, almost every single gate I've seen involves using sand/gravel. Would you be able to build the same gate without sand/gravel and still keep the same opening/closing mechanism?

I've followed all the steps up to the red circuit, but when I push the buttons, it only powers the lowest layer of pistons...

i see some interesting redstone contraptions in the background. hope you have vids for them :)

i failed it... nothing works... followed every step.... rewind..... forward... hell i can do it by heart... unfortunetly... i still fail at it. imma try again til i figure it out. (1.4.7 Build.)

I think there might be a directional glitch with this design interacting with the game (vanilla Minecraft 1.4.7). The design is fantastic and I have it working several times in several places, but specifically when I am trying to build it with the "front" (the 3 rows of the magenta circuit) to the east, it never lights the first torch you hold off on placing (cyan circuit, bottom) long enough to send the signal up. the not-gate torches.

does the piston gate work on xbox

nothing carries through the repeaters and the top torch doesnt get power when i press the buttons... literally nothing is wrong, its an exact copy of yours it makes no sense >.< maybe updates?
