  • can stairs be rotated, tried placing some in my new house but they always seem to go the wrong way.
  • Stair placement depends on which way you're looking. Try standing in a different spot (i.e. in the direction you'd be walking up the stairs) before placing.
  • ah, hadn't thought of that, thanks
  • You have to place them ground first not wall first.
  • Will this always stay in beta? Lol
  • Probably until it reaches feature parity with the Java version (excluding mods).
  • Whats an Observer? I've never seen it before. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It's a new block in the Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Edition to mimic the "quasi-connectivity" bug-that-became-a-feature in the PC Java / console editions. It allows for some more advanced, piston-based Redstone contraptions to work.
  • This game is way deeper than I thought
  • Yes, it reallly is. People often dismiss it as a "simple kids' game" (I know I did), but it's so much more than that. Right now I'm getting into Redstone, trying to automate resource collection as much as possible--fully automatic mob droppers, farms, item transporters and item sorters. The things people have come up with are just brilliant. And there is still so much left to build and discover in the game. I haven't even got into villager breeding and trading yet, or potion brewing. And I still need to capture a Nether stronghold, build up my Nether base, build a Nether-to-Overworld railroad transportation network, visit the End, destroy the Ender Dragon and the Wither, explore for jungle and desert temples and ocean monuments, etc.! This is easily the best 'bang-for-my-buck' I ever spent on a game.
  • Man, redstone is a deep, deep rabbit hole.
