Tomorrow I start my first day of classes. Excited? Yes. Scared? Yes. But less scared and overwhelmed than I was a few months ago when I was just thinking about it. Can I do this?

Minecraft Rails: How the crap do they work?

Posted on Sunday, August 14, 2011 in Minecraft

I don’t know how to do rails in Minecraft and it’s making me so mad. I want to make a loop system with a track switch. I am failing completely. My mind is all derp about detector rails and how to power their input and what the hell am I doing? And apparently what I am trying to do is so blindingly simple that there are no diagrams or videos or anything helpful online.

Am I really this stupid? I’m not in a good mood at all today and this is really really pissing me off.
