Minecraft is a game where we can develop our imagination to the fullest, since it is characterized by being like a “sandbox” in which we are allowed to do whatever we want.
In fact, it is even possible to create complicated mechanisms that facilitate our day to day playing. If you want to discover what they are, today we explain how to make or craft a panel or sunlight sensor in Minecraft in a simple and fast way.
After having so many years in the lives of millions of people, Minecraft has managed to have more updates than we can remember. That is why today we show you how you can make one of the most useful and most used mechanisms, so that you can keep up to date with everything that this wonderful game offers us.
How to craft a panel or light sensor in Minecraft?
When we manage to download and install Minecraft, we will surely realize that it has many different aspects; so many that many times we don’t know where to start. But one of the most important, interesting and used features of the entire game are the different mechanisms that we can use to facilitate the tasks that we carry out in our day to day playing.
One of the most useful building blocks for these complicated mechanisms is without a doubt the sunlight sensor. If you want to start immersing yourself in the wonderful world of mechanics within Minecraft, we encourage you to keep reading and discover how you can create or craft one of these useful solar sensors.
Steps to craft a light sensor in Minecraft
Of course, before you start crafting the famous light sensor in Minecraft, you need to have an idea of how to get started with redstone.
That is why we encourage you to look for the guide you need to be able to build the redstone mechanisms you want without any problem. Having said that, we first show you what you need to create the sunlight sensor.
All you need is three glass blocks, three infra-quartz and three wooden slabs of any kind. That’s it! When you have all the materials, you just have to find a crafting table and put the materials in the following way:
- First, put the three glass blocks in the three spaces in the top row.
- Then put the three infra-quarters in the three spaces in the middle row.
- And finally, fill the entire row below with the three wooden tiles of any type.
How can you use the sunlight sensor in Minecraft?
When you have created or crafted your light sensor, you will surely be wondering how this special block works. Well, basically, you can use it to power all the redstone mechanisms you create. What sensors of this type do is take the sunlight of the moment to power whatever you want , just like a real-life solar panel.
If it is noon, which is when there is the greatest amount of sunlight in the game, the sensor will emit a signal of up to 15 blocks; and if it is late, it will be a 5 block signal.
Of course, in order to use it correctly, it is necessary that you know the time in Minecraft accurately, so we recommend that you have a watch on hand within the game.
Thanks to its square shape, it is possible to connect four different circuits to the sensor at once , which greatly facilitates the process of creating large mechanisms with a reliable power source. Also, if you want, you can complement the use of the sensor by making a repeater and redstone comparator and thus make much more complex circuits.
On the other hand, something that will be of great help when working with this sensor is that it also feeds on moonlight , so it will not stop working even at night. We encourage you to continue learning about this topic and to make the most of your time while playing Minecraft.
