The tutorial explains how to make it, how to use and what the Observer is for in Minecraft
Minecraft offers Player Observer, which is a type of Redstone block that automates the player’s work. He, who looks like an expressionless face, “watches” what happens in front of him and can be used to activate other elements. Next, understand how to make, use and what the Observer is for in Minecraft.
For those who don’t know, the Observer is a block that observes changes in the block just in front of it, where the “eyes” would be, and then emits a Redstone signal. It notices if a block is placed in front, if a piston pushes another block into its field of vision, and even if there is a change in a block, such as a Lever on or off.
Creating an Observer block is relatively easy. The player will need six Boulders, two handfuls of Redstone and a Nether Quartz. As its name suggests, Nether Quartz is a material that can only be found in the Nether dimension and will require the player to create a portal to mine it. The material is similar to a natural Nether block, but with a white appearance.
The usage limit for the Observer depends only on the player’s imagination. Here’s one of the most common uses: in bamboo planting. With the Watcher, it is possible to automatically harvest the items when the plant grows enough.
How to make Observer in Minecraft and use it
Step 1. Visit Nether and get Nether Quartz;
Step 2. Use a bench to combine six Boulders, two handfuls of Redstone, and a Nether Quartz to create an Observer;
Step 3. Place the Observer in your world. When inserting the block, it will point in the direction of the player. The “eyes” are the part that the block detects and the red dot behind is where the Redstone signal goes out. They can also be placed “looking” up and down;
Step 4. To test the Observer place a Lever in front of him and interact with it to see the output of Redstone’s signal;
Step 5. It is also possible to perform the test with a Piston that pushes a block in front of the Observer to see the Redstone signal;
Step 6. The signal can be extended with handfuls of Redstone at the Observer’s output;
Step 7. Using all these concepts, it is possible to create a Bamboo plantation that automatically activates a Piston when the Observer detects that it has reached three blocks in height.
