Retractable floor

Is it possible to use pistons to pull back a large floor? I have been able to make doors and retractable floors that are 2 across, but can pistons be used to move blocks more than just two spaces? Like to make a 2 block wide retractable floor you put a piston on each side, but can you have it like 4 wide or more?

I am interested in making a floor trap where the floor can pull back and reveal a pit below, but currently i can only make it as a hallway rather than an actual room.
I can imagine a couple of ways it might work.. but neither of them is really practical. Would be cool tho!

as in wire in a checkered manner, with acces to the other wires blocked off by block corners. i have seen a wire can power the block under the piston.
I have the RedPower mod which lets me make wires that dont connect to each other, and i have a wireless redstone mod which lets me send signals without using wires at all, but i was hoping there might be some way to make a piston pull another piston or something like that.

I have an idea for how to make this possible in the future: Slimeballs are “sticky”, so they should be able to be used in order to craft glue, which you could put on blocks to make them stick together and be pulled together. Do you agree?

Yeah you can move multiple blocks with a sticky piston, but only one gets pulled back. Also you can stick sticky pistons together, but only the powered one extends and if you power another one it gets stuck where it is and doesnt come back.

You can have pistons pushing pistons, pushing pistons, but you need redstone repeaters and wires pointing to where the secondary and tertiary pistons will be once the charge hits them.

A simpler way might be to look at the Craftbook mod and the tool

You can make it so that the pistons pull the floor down. and have the walls 1 high on that. so they can”t get out if you know what i mean. That should work for what you want.

Where the Wool is the empty place. The empty blocks are the stone..ect the TNT is the pistons and the obsidian are also Stone..etc

If that makes sence? maybe that is what your looking for.

Not quite, see one of the traps i was trying to make was a floor that pulled back revealing a fire pit below it. I can do it as long as it”s only 2 wide, but no more than that.

Links to those?

Also powering the additional pistons causes some problems in that they tend to stick where they are once powered instead of being pulled back when power goes away.

That is. Using empty block emotes to denote empty space and stone emotes to denote stone (who”d have thunk it?)

Apparently I”m a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable. If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME. Otherwise you”re just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

You can use pistons to push open fence gates, which act as empty blocks (push the floor with the gates).

It would be a bit slow to push many tho.

PostAblindmind1:Tnt can also be uses to see caves underground…unless they removed that bug.
Malacodor: With enough TNT you can see caves without using bugs.

Where the TNT is the pistons and the stone is the blocks of stone for the floor. I am looking for it so that when the trap is triggered all the stone blocks pull back so it”s like this

Where the turquiose blocks are the walls of the room, which the pistons would be under to push the floors.

Yeah, you can make them as long as you want, but the pistons always have to be at most 2 spaces across from each other currently.

I have an idea for a retractable floor, but you would need to reset it each time. Also, the redstone framework for it is not included, i”m too lazy to figure it out right now.

Dig a big hole down to bedrock (Figure size out for yourself at the end of this). You would have a sticky piston facing one way. Then on the sticky bit, you would have a block of sand. On the side of the sand that is facing the same way the sticky piston is you would place a torch. Then build your floor out of sand off that one torch and others. Then, when they are going across that corridor, have a pressure plate then when they step off it onto the first block of sand, the piston will retract and by doing this it will pull the sand block with it. By doing this the torch is destroyed and all the other blocks will fall to bedrock (or however far the hole is. ) Alternatively, if this is for a entrance to a secret base you could make it a lever or something. Just my two cents, hope this helped.
