Fully automatic pumpkin and/or melon farm.
I was looking for an automatic, modless, pumpkin farm for a long time. Unfortunately, many of them contained many pistons, water cannons and stuff like that. So I designed myself a space-saving "pumpkin tower", which works very well and provides sufficient pumpkins or melons. It's fully automatic, flawless, maintenance free, and doesn't require a water cannon. I hope you like it 🙂
A short technical guide to this:
The system harvests itself fully automatically at sunrise by a simple day sensor pulse. More details are described below. This pulse causes the pistons to briefly extend to harvest the pumpkins or melons. The pumpkins or melons fall down a long chute where there are funnels that funnel the whole thing into a chest. Each level is identical and therefore the individual "modules" can be stacked as many times as you like and thus you can easily produce a lot of pumpkins or melons without having to cultivate a large area.
Instructions:And I'm going to show you how:
First you need a 9x7 area
For the first level you will need 3 funnels, 4 blocks of your choice (in my case glass), and a chest:
The funnels lead into the chest.
Then comes, quite simply, the 2nd level:
The 3rd level is also feasible. Please pay attention to the direction of the Redstone amplifiers and set the amplifier after the piston to the highest level, all others can be left as they are. Sand or gravel must be placed on the piston, because of gravity.
Then you can plant melon or pumpkin seeds by the outer soil blocks.
Please put the block my cursor is pointing too, forgot it at the beginning ^_^
Then just build on it like that:
And transfer the whole thing from level 1 to level 2:
Then you connect the redstone with 2 simple blocks and put another amplifier on level 2 like I did here:
The bridge for the 3rd level is then on the right:
That's it. You know how to build a level, you can build as many times as they are identical. If you have done everything right your chest looks like this :D
Have fun rebuilding it.
