  • Who doesn't like hidden bases if you don't then quite frankly you're weird

  • Okay, and I wouldn't want to be friends with you which now

  • I'll be the first to admit comes across a lot more hostile than I was expecting but to a certain extent it is true

  • So in today's video we're going to be taking a look at

  • 25 different hidden entrances and also hidden activation devices that you can use to activate

  • Your hidden entrances so that you can make the best hidden bases in Minecraft two by two flush piston door

  • I thought I would start things off with some fairly simple ones before we move on to some of the more complicated stuff and this

  • Is by far the most common type of hidden entrance. I mean look at it

  • You're gonna understand why it's a really nice-looking piston door

  • It only involves a handful of pieces of redstone dust and two repeaters

  • you could build it within about 30 seconds if you're motivated enough and

  • it does the trick doesn't it redstone torch key for anyone who's seen one of my bunker videos before you've probably

  • Seen this piston layout because this is one of my favorite hidden activation devices if we placed on a redstone torch

  • You can see the Pistons extend the redstone torch gets broken and we can take a register output from this thing

  • Now the reason we want to break the redstone torch is because we want to be able to pick up that item and remove any

  • Evidence of there being a hidden activation device there. It's really small. It's really simple easy to build. It's pretty cool

  • The tiny tiny tiny tiny hidden staircase and I would say that's a fairly fitting description for this thing

  • I mean I built it back in 2014 maybe 2015 and in four or five years. I still haven't been able to improve it

  • I still haven't been able to make it any smaller

  • So here we have a completely flat floor

  • If you flick this lever here

  • You can see that everything folds away and we have ourselves a little staircase that we can walk down them when we flick the lever again

  • Everything falls back up and just look how much is happening here

  • Inside that tiny circuit, I mean this all of this happening in something that could fit in my back pocket. Yeah

  • That's right. My my back pocket is a forty eight cubic meters

  • I'm I'm a big guy the anti path activator

  • Now the reason I call it that is because this redstone

  • Contraption really looks like it doesn't like path blocks

  • If we convert this you can see that instantly the piston extends converting it into dirt

  • But most importantly we get a register an output from that which we can hook up into one of our hidden

  • Entrances and the reason that this is so good is because you always have a shovel on you

  • So there's no specific item that you need to carry to activate you hidden activation device

  • You just have to right click on the correct grass block

  • Important disclaimer time whenever I do a video on hidden entrances or hidden activation devices

  • Very smart people in the comment section points out that they can see the hidden entrances and hidden activation devices

  • Because I have used things like iron blocks and glass you. Can you can clearly see this?

  • Obviously if you were to build this yourselves, you would try your best to conceal the redstone contraptions a tiny bit better

  • I know it seems silly that I would even have to explain this but

  • You haven't read the youtube comment sections like I have the pretentious entrance

  • definitely a trick you want to say and the reason he's got that name is because a lot of people say that art is like

  • a gateway into another dimension or another world and you know

  • I'll leave you guys to debate that down in the comment section

  • But this piece of art is a gateway into another part of your base. That is completely concealed

  • We've all seen the walkthrough paintings that have been built since 2010 minecraft. They're pretty old-school nowadays

  • We can crawl through

  • I mean if we add a little bit of redstone we can actually get through one by one paintings and they're really really smart

  • Really really simple the I was going to do a really bad Batman impression

  • but then I decided against the entrance back in the day when I was a youngin on YouTube one of my most popular videos was

  • A Batman style waterfall splitter entrance now. It's been a while since I've touched on the subject

  • So I thought I would try and redo it with

  • modern redstone technology and make it as small as I possibly could I spent a number of hours on this and I've got to say

  • I'm very proud of the end result. I mean this thing is absolutely tiny

  • It's about as small as it could reasonably be and if we hit this button right here

  • You can see the waterfall gets removed and then it drops back down

  • It is split

  • So on either side of our now open doors

  • We could gain access to our base. And then if we activate it, once again, you can see that the waterfall goes

  • everything gets closed up and

  • Everything returns back to normal. I love these things. I think they're absolutely great. And I am really really proud of this design

  • I mean, there's so much fancy stuff going in here and just odd redstone mechanics so that it doesn't make a lot of sense

  • But it all seems to work somehow the powerpuff activator

  • I don't know if it's just my bad luck or if I'm doing something wrong

  • But whenever I build the tripwire based pufferfish plant factors the puff fish always escape and die

  • So I thought I'd come up with a slightly new design which utilizes some slightly different game mechanics

  • So here we have a puff fish in a waterlogged

  • Fencepost with a pressure plate on top when the puffer fish puffs up

  • It will then activate that pressure plate obviously giving us a redstone output. But this setup here doesn't give any room for escape

  • So you're in here forever, buddy, the lazy flush. This is for people who are too lazy to build something like this

  • You can just construct a piston door in the corner. Is it boring? Yes. Is it bland? very bland

  • I would think you're super bland if you built this

  • I mean if I came to your face and I saw this I would be judging you a lot

  • I'll be judging you Lots. Okay, because it's so unimaginative, but for some people it fits the bill a farmer's button

  • This is a pretty nice-looking field of wheat

  • Nothing too curious or strange about it if I walked past I wouldn't notice anything

  • But if you take a look here

  • You can see there's a slight gap and if we utilize the hitboxes we can right click through that gap hitting a button

  • Which allows us to activate some form of hidden redstone device? This is a sneaky one. Okay, it is a sneaky one

  • only the keenest of keen eyes

  • would be able to spot it the underwater easy in and easy out is a bit of an interesting concept and that I thought I

  • Just try and build it and see if it worked and it actually seems to work quite nicely

  • So currently we're on the inside of our hidden base

  • The ocean is above us if we hit this button right here

  • You can see that Soul sand gets swapped across we get shot

  • Upwards the trap door closes up behind us and then we can leave our hidden base behind

  • Without anyone knowing that it's there now if we were entering the hidden base

  • We would obviously have some form of secret activation device that would open up our trap door the magma would stay there

  • we'd drop through the water without having to hold shift or do anything like that and we'd immediately drop down into our hidden base the

  • Over water easy in and easy out

  • It's probably one of my favourite trap doors to exit from so here we are on the inside of my hidden base

  • I know it needs a little bit of work

  • But if we hit this button right here

  • You can see that we get launched upwards and then the trap door closes up behind us makes it so much easier

  • To get out of that hidden base and if we take a look at the redstone another one

  • That is crazy how small it is? Look two blocks wide

  • Okay paper thin the Stone breaker know it we'll be the first to admit that this is no small redstone contraption

  • Okay, this is quite a beefy one

  • But it does come with the added benefit that you don't need any specific items in your inventory. No redstone torch keys

  • no special key passes

  • All you need is a pickaxe and you need to know what block to break when you break that specific stone block

  • It will be replenished. You'll get yourself a redstone output and that will activate your hidden entrance

  • It's pretty smart, but it is it's huge. Yes. It is. Very big the entrance from 2012

  • This little thing was featured in my 50 things

  • You can build in Minecraft video

  • But sometimes it's good to remind people of the old gold days if we just jump through this lava you can see we drop through

  • Straight into water. We barely take any damage in survival. And then we've just we've popped into our hidden base

  • I mean

  • It's it's as simple as that no redstone involved and the best thing is is if someone sees you do this

  • You look amazing. You've just jumped off a ledge into lava like a total nutcase and somehow haven't died

  • No, I hidden staircase but a hidden entrance in a staircase

  • It's a fairly lengthy name but I'd say it's quite a descriptive one

  • Here is our not hidden staircase

  • And if we activate this thing it reveals our hidden entrance now as you can see, this is one block wide

  • But the good thing about this redstone design is is expandable

  • So if you want something slightly wider then all you have to do is copy the redstone over but if you want it in one

  • wide configuration then as you can see I

  • Mean, it's it's about as small as it can be

  • This thing is a slither of a redstone contraption and I would say that's the technical term for it the composter pull through once again

  • Minecraft 1.14 comes to the rescue in two ways first off

  • We've got the composter quite a nice little block, but more importantly we have the crawl feature

  • We can literally package ourselves up and pull ourselves through a wall to gain access into a hidden base

  • Now this looks extra spectacular from the third-person. The very predictable

  • But also very good too hidden activation device it consists of a little item filter

  • I mean you've seen me use these in my bunker videos

  • once again

  • You throw a specific type of item on a specific part of the ground and it will trigger a redstone

  • circuit first off a player needs to know where to throw the items which is

  • Unlikely that they're going to be able to guess that but they'd also need to guess

  • What item and also what you've renamed the item if they were to try and brute force

  • This let be there for a long long long long time a very long time heat death of the universe

  • Kind of time the flush piston door, but for much cooler people. Yeah, we get it

  • Okay, your flush piston door that was invented back in like 2011 is all right

  • I suppose but everyone knows that three by three doors are far cooler than 2x2 doors and this one is no exception

  • Here it is. It involves slime blocks. Double piston extenders little bit of piston action up at the top

  • They're all very nice and in sync. I love these things if I was to hide away a base

  • I think this might be what I'd go for hiding in plain sight or as I like to call it the Illuminati button now if

  • You're really looking for it. You can just about see it

  • I'm under no illusions that there's no way that a player could find this but in the

  • Context of regular Minecraft terrain with a giant cliff face in front of you

  • You're gonna be hard pushed to spot something like that

  • Especially if you're not looking for it the I spent way too long building this small redstone contraption, but I'm proud of it

  • I'm really liking the descriptive names for these things

  • This this is very similar to the past switch that we saw earlier on in the video

  • But it has an added complexity that I wanted to put a trapdoor in there as well

  • So when we convert this grass block into a path or this darts into farmland, it will get moved out the way

  • Create a trapdoor that we can drop through and then we pushed back up into place seems simple enough, doesn't it?

  • I thought would be simple too Oh

  • The timings very specific. The timings are super super specific and it's a very unstable circuit

  • But I managed to make it work after a few a few teary moments

  • Staircase fresh out the wall. Uh, yeah just as a quick disclaimer. This is utterly pointless

  • Okay, it really is over the top but is over the top in the best possible way

  • This is like flexing but with redstone if you have this as your hidden entrance, I think that's so ridiculous

  • So you've got stairs popping up out of the ground then we have this

  • Popping up here and then these blocks get retracted back and then we have a 2x2 flush piston door up at the top

  • so you essentially create a staircase up into your hidden entrance and it looks

  • Amazing and I gotta say I think I did a pretty good job with the redstone as well

  • so the main bulk of it is just two blocks wide and then up at the top here things get a little bit bigger for

  • The flush trapdoor but still this is not that big and also not really that complicated

  • I want one of these the simply the best. I mean, this is just the best

  • This probably had the longest development time out of all the builds in the video

  • But I'm definitely the most proud of it just because it's another one that is super compact

  • I mean look everything kind of fits within this really really small space

  • you can actually put two of them next one another and mirror it to create a two wide system and just look how

  • streamlined, this is

  • How cool is that?

  • So you flick the lever

  • We've got ourselves a completely flat wall. Nothing to see there and then we activate it

  • Once again, everything folds out the way and we have got ourselves a staircase

  • This just this hits the spot for me

  • Ah, that totally hits the spot bouncing in with all this talk of staircases and things it got me thinking

  • Maybe there's a way to cut out the staircase and just launch ourselves to the destination. I gotta say the end result is pretty satisfying. Haha

  • Slime blocks are always good fun. And when they're set up like this it's even cooler

  • So the little block moves out the way we're revealing the slime block

  • We then get launched upwards by the slime block

  • And as that happens this flush piston door opens up allowing us to pass through into the hidden base up at the top. Ah I can't get

  • Enough of this thing the cave crawler a lot of these systems recently have been fairly big and bulky and quite redstone intensive

  • So let's take a look at one. That's considerably simpler

  • all we have to do is

  • Activate it will be pushed downwards into the crawl state and we'll be able to crawl through a little gap that we've created

  • Inside the cave two Pistons just a little bit of redstone. That's about all you need the cave not crawler

  • It's three blocks wide. You've got loads of space

  • I thought I would walk off this idea a little bit by

  • Constructing a piston door that looks like a part of the cave

  • So if we hit this button here

  • You can see that the cave then gets attracted back and we've got a lovely 3x3 area

  • Which we can all agree is probably one of nicer sizes for a piston door

  • And then when we activate it, once again, everything closes back up in our desired

  • Configuration now this wasn't too complicated

  • You can see that we've got a bunch of single piston extenders and then the only tricky bit were these central blocks

  • but that was handled by these double piston extenders and all of that circuitry is happening underneath and that is pretty

  • Plain sailing and finally, you could just you know you could just place a block over it.

  • I mean

  • Not much redstone needed you can cover it up if you want to hold shift

  • Nobody's gonna know you're in there when the coast is clear. Just remove the block and

  • Pop back out and then just replace replace the block. No redstone needed

  • No redstone needed makes you it makes you really think

  • If it's been a total waste of time

  • You know these past two days compiling this list coming up with the ideas building the redstone for them. Yeah

  • It really makes you rethink those things the world, you know, if you need it is down the description

  • obviously the first 24 designs you can ignore but if you want to experiment with the last design and you know

  • See how easy it would be to do that in your own world

  • then you can

  • So the world download is down in the description obviously the other designs might be worth looking at but let's face it

  • Design number 25 is the only one that matters

Who doesn't like hidden bases if you don't then quite frankly you're weird
