    Having lived through so many years in the lives of millions of people, Minecraft has managed to get more updates than we can remember. That's why today we show you how you can make one of the mechanisms most useful and most used, so that we can keep you updated on everything that this wonderful game offers us.

    How to make a panel or light sensor in Minecraft?

    When we manage to download and install Minecraft, we will surely realize that it has many different aspects; so many that many times we don't know where to start. But one of the more features important, interesting and used of the whole game are the different mechanisms that we can use to facilitate the tasks we perform in our daily game.



    One of the most useful building blocks for these complicated mechanisms is undoubtedly the sunlight sensor. If you want to start immersing yourself in the wonderful world of mechanics within Minecraft, we invite you to read on and find out how you can make or create one of these useful sun sensors.

    Steps to create a light sensor in Minecraft

    Of course, before you start making the famous light sensor in Minecraft, you need to have an idea of ​​how to get started with the redstone.

    That's why we encourage you to seek the guidance you need to be able to build the mechanisms of red stone you want without any problem. That said, let's first show you what you need to create the sunlight sensor.

    All you need are three glass blocks, three infra-quartz and three wooden plates of any kind. When you have all the materials, you just have to find a work table and place the materials as follows:



    • First, put the three glass blocks in the three spaces in the top row.
    • Then place the three infra-quarters in the three spaces in the middle row.
    • And finally, fill the entire row below with the three wooden tiles of any type.

    How can you use the sunlight sensor in Minecraft?

    When you have created or made your own light sensor, you are surely wondering how this special block works. Well, basically, you can use it to power all the redstone mechanisms you create. What sensors of this type do is take the sunlight of the moment to power what you wantjust like a real solar panel.

    If it is noon, which is when there is the greatest amount of sunlight in the game, the sensor will emit a signal of up to 15 blocks; and if it's late, it will be a 5 block signal.

    Obviously, in order to use it correctly, you need to know the time in Minecraft accurately, so we recommend that you have a clock handy within the game.


    Thanks to its square shape, it is possible simultaneously connect four different circuits to the sensor, which greatly facilitates the process of creating large mechanisms with a reliable power source. Also, if you wish, you can complete the use of the sensor by making a redstone repeater and comparator and thus making much more complex circuits.


    On the other hand, something that will be of great help when working with this sensor is that yes nourishes also of the moonlight, so it won't stop working even at night. We encourage you to continue learning about this topic and making the most of your time playing Minecraft.
