Create a slime block elevator
An easy way to create an elevator in minecraft is to use a system that takes advantage of i sticky pistons and slime blocks. Building an elevator of this type does not take much time, as its construction procedure requires only a few steps to pay attention to.
The first thing to do is to get the materials to create the elevator. We need some wooden boards, obsidian blocks, slime blocks, an normal piston, three pistons stickyand redstone, a pair of buttons and two observer blocks. What are all these materials for? I'll explain it to you briefly.
The slime blocks have the characteristic of being composed of a material (the slime) that is bouncy and sticky. It therefore allows you to drag all the other adjacent blocks with you. A plunger placed under a block of slime allows you to push the block and all the blocks on which the slime interacts. A piston, however, only makes one click, which however can be "infinite", if connected to an observer block. The latter has the purpose of emitting a signal to the piston if there is a change of state to any block on which the observer is resting.
Now that you have a conceptual understanding of the operation process of this elevator, it's time to start building it. First, you have to dig one hole 3 × 5 in size and four blocks deep. The side of three blocks must face the elevator entrance. The pit is essential to contain the lift mechanism.
Now go inside the hole and place a appiccicoso piston on the wall of three blocks. This plunger should be positioned horizontally with the sticky surface facing the hole, on which you will need to place a block of axes. It then leaves a block of free space to place a obsidian block.
On the obsidian block, place two vertically slime blocks. Next to the first block of slime, place a observer block with the redstone output facing up. On the latter, place a appiccicoso piston with two above slime blocks.
Next to the last block of slime you placed, place a observer with the redstone output facing down. Between the observer and the slime block, place a appiccicoso piston also facing down. Now, place two more slime blocks on the others of the same material that you previously placed.
On the first sticky plunger, which you initially placed horizontally, place a block of axes with above the redstone. Install on top of another block of axes with button. On the column of four slime blocks, place on side two blocks of axes at the ends, so as to create the lifting platform.
At this point, it's time to build the structure that will allow you to accommodate the elevator and bring it back to the lower floor. If you are building an elevator inside the shelter, the structure is certainly already present, as you will simply have to make an opening in the floor of the upper floor. In my case, the elevator is useful for accessing a shelter suspended in the air.
Upstairs, build a arc with planks, three blocks high. Then place a block of axes with button on the front and one of obsidian and wood in the rear one. On top of the arch, place a strip of redstone. Finally, under the block of axles in the rear area place a pistone normal flipped down.
Now all you have to do is go back downstairs, step onto the lift platform and press the button to operate it, to take you upstairs. To go down, just press the switch you placed on the top block on the upper floor.
If you have any doubts, I suggest you watch this video tutorial (in English) made by a YouTuber, which explains in detail how to proceed with the construction of this lift.
Mod to create an elevator
Another method to use the elevator on Minecraft, without having to follow complicated procedures and tricks, is to install a against used for this purpose: OpenBlocks Elevator. This mod is downloadable from the website of Curseforge, in the section dedicated to Minecraft.
The mechanism of this mod is simple: two special blocks are placed on different planes, but which are however on the same vertical axis, i.e. aligned. The player has to do is place his avatar on this special block and press the space bar on the keyboard to perform a jump, so that a teleport is performed on the corresponding block on the upper floor.
Instead, to go down to the block located on the lower floor, the player must press the button Shift on the one positioned on the upper floor, so as to be teleported.
