Bluestone is a wireless redstone mod designed to allow you to take your redstone contraptions to the next level.

 

 

How does it work?

Bluestone blocks are either designated as transmitters or receivers. Transmitters act as sources for bluestone signals, while receivers perform a certain task when receiving a signal. The network tool can be used to easily link and unlink transmitters and receivers, even across great distances.

 

Getting Started

Just Enough Items is HIGHLY recommended.

To get started, simply combine one redstone and one lapis in order to obtain 2 bluestone dust. From there, craft a networking tool. Determine what type of device you wish to build, and construct the appropriate transmitter and receiver. Shift-right click on the placed transmitter, then do the same on the placed receiver. These two blocks are now linked.

 

Networking Tool Controls

Set transmitter -> Shift right click on any transmitter block.

Link receiver -> Shift right click on any receiver block to link it to the saved transmitter.

Unlink mode -> Shift right click while facing any non-transmitter/receiver block to toggle the tool into unlink mode. Repeat the same steps used to link blocks.

Clear saved transmitter -> Shift right click while facing upwards towards empty space (no block within reach).
