    Redstone contraption competition

    -General information-

    in this competition, I want you to build the most complicated redstone contraption you can. I have seen somebody make a calculator out of redstone, I've seen a thingamajig that can remember 8 letters that will go across a "Screen" from right to left. I want to see more out of redstone now, you don't have to top those contraptions, but you have to have the best entry of all of them, also, this doesn't have to be on this server, as long as you make a video of it so I can see it.

    -Rules-

    There is only one rule, YOU have to make it, it doesn't have to be your idea but you have to have made it, no stealing a video of something cool.

    -Prizes-

    The prize is $20,000.00 in game money, that's enough to become a resident. ;)

    -Deadline-

    The end date for entry's is May 30th, keep those contraptions coming.

    -Unnecessary rant about why I made this competition (don't bother reading unless your bored :p )-

    I was bored and thought that I should do something I haven't done before, I wasn't even a resident yet, as I got closer to becoming resident, I thought 'do I really want to use my money? I could be the first resident' I ended up becoming resident, as time went on, I kept mentioning how much diamond I was finding, every time I did, people were sarcastically asking for me to lend money, then I always said, 'I have plans for it' These were those plans, to set a competition, for enough money to become a resident, and Now I have that money, and this rant is too long so I will stop now. :laugh:

    Swoop in and enter, being the only one in, win the prize. :b I'd totally do that. >_>

    I wonder why no one wants to play with redstone. o.o

    I don't need images, the only thing I need is to see what it does and if it works, and a video does just that, also, the link appears to not work.

    Edit: Works now.

    Edit2: Nice job, I don't know how the minecart pops out like that, it's a little strange, but it's very handy.

    I know, I'm not that good with redstone wiring ether. I would never make a vending machine, it would be way too complicated for me.

    vending machines seem so simple. just storage minecarts behind powered rails with a redstone wird leading to it from a button. when prerssed it stops stopping the minecart and pushes it forward xD pretty easy. stuff like missions things are hard... and calculators

    There is different kinds of redstone vending machines, but both of those are considered redstone vending machines.

    I think it's just like other blocks, all you do is hook up the redstone to the dispenser, I think the problem you're having is that it can't directly turn into a dispenser, here is an example, ! = redstone, * = dispenser, and ^ = the power source

    !*
    !
    !
    ^

    that wouldn't work but this would

    !!*
    !
    !
    ^

    is that clear enough?

    Um, before we use that mod, I want to look at it and see what it does, because something like pistons would be fine as I know what it does, but if I don't know what it is, then it makes judging your contraption much harder, I will look at that mod and will reply later when I know, or you can tell me if it's not that complicated.
