Minecraft 1.16 Snapshot 20w18a is full of bug fixes, technical changes, oh and some big changes to how redstone wire powers things.

Minecraft 1.16 Snapshot 20w18a

Features:

  • Redstone wire changes.
  • The target block now conducts redstone signals.

Redstone wire:

  • The blockstate, rendering and behavior of redstone wire are more in line with each other. Redstone will provide power to blocks on all sides it shows a visual connection to, and not do so on those sides without a visual connection.
  • A single redstone wire is now represented as a cross.
  • A wire on top of a block, which is redirected from below, will power the sides it is redirected to now. E.g. a fence gate above the redirecting wire will be powered.
  • Wires that redirect upwards to wires on non-conductive blocks used to only be redirected visually. Now this redirection applies to their behavior as well.
  • A wire that is redirected to go over a block will now always provide power to the block. This is most noticeable when the wire has signal strength 1.
