BetterPistons is a mechanic that allows many things to be done with pistons.

There are currently 4 piston mechs:

  • Crush [Not available]
  • Bounce
  • SuperSticky
  • SuperPush


Bounce Edit

Center

The bounce mechanism propels blocks and entities.

It require a sign attached to the piston, with the second line being [Bounce], and the third being the velocity of the bounce. The max bounce velocity is 10. The block the piston extends onto upon being powered, is the block any entities or blocks standing in will be propelled from.

As of CraftBukkit build #1934, there is a blacklist for this located under config.yml as "bounce-blacklist:"

SuperStickyEdit

Center

The supersticky mechanism allows blocks further away than 1 block to be pulled.

It require a sign attached to the piston, with the second line being [SuperSticky], and the third being the amount of blocks to pull. The max amount is 10.

The third line can also allow it to pull back a distance further than 1 in a single pulse. To do so, enter it in this format: maxdistance-pullperpulse. For example, 10-2 would pull blocks up to 10 blocks away, 2 blocks per pulse.

If AIR is on the last line, it gains the ability to pull AIR.

SuperPushEdit

Center

The SuperPush mechanism allows air to also be pushed by pistons.

It require a sign attached to the piston, with the second line being [SuperPush], and the third being the amount of blocks to push. The max amount is 10.

The third line can also allow it to push forward a distance further than 1 in a single pulse. To do so, enter it in this format: maxdistance-pushperpulse. For example, 10-2 would push blocks up to 10 blocks away, 2 blocks per pulse.
