I spent a few hours staring at the stick piston and something was bugging me. I had an idea but I wasn't sure what it was! Then, eureka! They can be used to move blocks to form a gate! Then came understanding redstone mechanics. This one took a while to get it nice and compact but I did it in the end!
It can only be opened from the inside of the gate/wall. There is a switch in the pod above the gate which is connected to a redstone lamp which is lit when the gate is open.
You can easily add a wall to either end which can enclose a village or settlement of any kind.
Personally, I quite like this one for it's functionality.
Comment, Rate and Enjoy!
