Minecraft Tutorial - TNT Cannon | Super Distance (Compact)
what's up everybody my name is cap and welcome back to another
tutorialtoday I'm going to show you how to make a TNT
cannonI know what you're thinking TNT
cannons aren't exactly a new thing to
Minecraftthey've been around for a couple years but I don't very I can't seem to find any that are very
compactlike this one is here I'll find them and they seem to take up a huge amount of room there's a whole lot of moving parts to them in order to be able to get a block of TNT to shoot even a relative
distanceI managed to make this one only four by six blocks long and take out I guess three hi I guess if you want to count it that way and it'll shoot an active block of TNT nearly a hundred square straight out now have a sign down that is exactly a hundred squares from the front of this thing so what I'm gonna do is I'm going to show you how it works and then I'll show you how to build it alrighty first things first I'll go ahead and give the block a click and a fly as fast as I can down here to where the sign is that marks off the 100 block marker and see if I can get there before it explodes wow it actually went further than the hundred blocks so here's 100 blocks right here from way over there so that is how far it actually shot on that time now it will vary a little bit you may get right at 100 a little bit beyond little bit here it's kind of random it just depends on how the TNT stacks up when it...
explodes but as you can see this tiny little device shoot an active TNT block a long ways over there so anyway let's get to showing you how to build it okay real fast before we get into it let you know I'm building this in
Minecraft1.7 point 9 no mods no snapshots just the plain Jane 1.7.9 so if you happen to be watching this video down the road in the future and it doesn't work keep in mind that there's always a chance they could have changed something but as of this version this is how it actually works so you're not going to need anything except for what's in the bar down here you're going to need two dispensers make sure the dispensers not droppers or it won't work your block of choice I'm using a block of iron just because it looks pretty redstone a button a few repeaters bucket of water a plethora of TNT and a fence and of course I had the sign just to mark off the
distancedown there but let's go ahead and get building so what you do is you start off you're gonna dig a hole three deep three long like this and we get your first dispenser and you're gonna put it facing up right here at the very end so that it's pointing straight up you're gonna put one on this side and put one on this side and you're gonna put one right behind it so that they're all facing the middle now this one gets a little bit tricky you have to be able to find your your Crouch click so when you click it Crouch I'm not gonna say...
shifter control is whatever you have it there but go ahead and put a block on top of this one here and I'll show you why because you need to go get down here crouch and look up and place another dispenser right there so that it's facing down straight in the middle if you don't have a block there there's not really a way to get it on top it without well it's just a little bit more complicated now what you're going to need is you're gonna throw a fence down at the very end here take your block of choice put one right next to it on this side and place another dispenser on top of it and then what you'll do is you'll fill in like this that's all you have to do for now now before we get going too much further and go ahead I'm gonna fill these up with TNT or I'm gonna put just a block of 64 in each one of them just to make life easy now I always wait until I'm completely done before I put any in the actual dispenser right here to fire all them off here because while the TNT here will explode it won't destroy the blocks is so if something is not wired right and this one ejects and it's lit up it'll blow the whole thing to pieces so anyway and I'll show you what that means in just a minute and so get your your bucket of water and you're gonna do your little Crouch click again you're gonna put it right there in the middle so it flows down into that little hole between the bottom dispenser and the fence now all...
the TNT ejected will go out right here now the trick is the way it works TMT when it explodes and water doesn't destroy the blocks around it so that's why you can get it to work the way it does from here you're gonna put it one of your blocks on top of this one and one below it now from under here what you need to do is dig out all the way to the dispenser you can all take out a couple things see what I mean they have to the dispenser it's actually two from under where this is that here so I'm gonna put a redstone there and there and that'll go right underneath your block here that's how far back it goes and then the rest of these you can just kind of fill in you're gonna throw a button on here Red's down on top of this one and on top of this one they're gonna put one here like that and here like that and now all of your redstone blocks are all of your dispensers are wired in so you can test it out push this you'll see the TN t--'s in the water and boom big nice explosion there and you can check to make sure that they're all wired in by just checking the inventory and all of them to make sure that there's minus one on all of them if it is then tada you actually have it working red and all we have to do is wire this one in so while we have it here go ahead and fill in this block around it like this now the reason why is because when it drops the TNT off its gonna sit on top of this fence which having the fence here the...
reason why we do that is it keeps the TNT block floating just slightly above level on this block here so that you see how I'm just slightly up what that means is that the TNT block here being ejected is sitting just slightly higher than the explosion part of it and so it'll make it shoot at a higher trajectory so and then put one more block there because that's how we're going to get access to that but also having these surrounding walls here ensures that it only shoots straight out you technically do not have to have these walls here it can be just one across but you will run into an occasion where the TNT block will shoot off to an angle over there if it happens to be floating just a little high so I always recommend just go ahead and put the wall up anyway now from over here or you're going to have to do so another redstone out and they're gonna do a couple repeaters none two three four four up this way redstone in the corner and go five and six and then a redstone up there in the top and that's all you have to do with it that's pretty much it now make sure each one of these repeaters is on the last delay so three clicks one two three one two three one two three and that'll ensure that by the time it drops the teams in the middle you'll count all the way down and it'll eject this one right before time runs out so that it'll have an active block and it can shoot it and I have to do is test it up push the button standby see if...
it comes out and boom and then go check out and see how far it actually went now if you have one of those instances where it happens to blow up in the air like it does sometimes don't worry about it that's just one of those things it happens it's not a big deal it's you know an explosion in the air is still gonna be an explosion of air you can try it again see if we can fly down here and see it this time should shoot right over my head boom see that's actually shooting a little bit further than that other one is wow that's going a long ways anyway as per usual if you want to the world download is gonna be in the video description so if you want to download it and check it out and test it out for yourself because it's a little easier if you can toy around with it than to try to just figure it out on your own so you have any questions leave any comments and download the world if you have any problems I hope you guys enjoyed this you guys have a good one and I will talk to you later
