What if Chains Actually Worked in Minecraft?


Minecraft chains were introduced in Minecraft 1.16: The nether update - However in my opinion they are not quite complete... because Minecraft chains currently can't do what chains are made to do, PULL STUFF! Thankfully Gnembon (Member of the scicraft server and creator of the Minecraft carpet Mod) has introduced Minecraft chainstone into the 1.16.3 Carpet mod. It makes chains work like slimeblocks and honey blocks, but without things sticking to the sides. This is definitely one of the features I would like to see in Minecraft 1.17!

    Considering its part of a redstone creation. The chain breaking could act like a fuse. Say you make a circuit that represents power draw by signal strength. If you exceed a defined level it could pulse the block. Breaking the active line for an XOR gate.

    What if there was also such thing that was made called, "Sticky chain", Basically combine a chain and slime in the crafting table to make it and it would act like a slime block but not ruin the look of the build, Like if you agree.

    Hold on Mumbo, if both ends of the chain hold on to whatever block they're attached to - why not just have the piston in the piston door pulling a stone block that has the chain on the other side? Block Chain Block Sticky Piston. Clean and easy, no?

    Mumbo you should have used vertical chains that come from the top and bottom of the vault door to pull up the stone slab blocks then used a double piston extendor to grab the horizontal chains to open the door. It should work

    Actually it's not an oversight, cuz technically pulling a chain with that much tension attached to a block stuck to the ground would almost instantly break it. So actually I'd agree with the MC Devs

    What do you mean "Worked"? It wasn't coded to have any function other than being a cosmetic. So really it has been working since the beginning because the developers coded it to be a cosmetic. Not as anything else. if they try and coded it in the intention of what you say in the video but failed, then yes you can say that it "can work" now if it was fixed or modded in a way. But as of right now the devs had no intention of making it a working item. Only as a cosmetic item. So they've been working since the very beginning and there was nothing missing or anything of the sort to say that "They could work properly now"
