Major differences between Minecraft and Mine Blocks
There are very few Redstone components in Mine Blocks compared to those in Minecraft. Those are redstone dust, dispensers, droppers, buttons, levers, pressure plates, and the redstone torch.
The block updating order and internal states are not described here but it can have unexpected and temporary side-effects. It is easy to create "phantom" power in ways other than shown above. An off-switch attached to such positions then removed is a reliable remedy unless there is an active source causing it. It is also common for tiles that should be powered to remain inactive, or be made inactive by touching unpowered dust for example. The remedy is to force the update to work differently either by resetting power or partial rebuilding.
No redstone ticks
In Mine Blocks, Redstone Ticks do not exist as everything happens all at once, which it harder to time things in circuits
Main Article: Redstone components
A list of all the Redstone components and their intended functions
These components are used as a way for the player to interact with the Redstone contraption.
These components are mainly used to turn the inputs into outputs.
These components are usually the end result of a Redstone contraption.
Basic power configurations
This is to be used if you have a hard time understanding the complex technical aspects of the next section.
When a piece of Redstone dust is powered, it has a full signal, if you carry on that signal by adding another Redstone dust onto the end, it will have a weaker signal, it keeps going like this until 16 blocks out, where the signal will have run out. Unlike Minecraft, Redstone dust does not power blocks 2 blocks below the dust, it has to be directly on top in order to be powered.
Redstone torches will power all sides except for below the torch, and if it's placed on a wall, the block behind it.
Top-mounted inputs won't power blocks 2 blocks below like in Minecraft, but it can still power the sides
Side-mounted inputs can power below the input, and it can power both sides as well, but not above
Complex power configurations
This is used for a more technical understanding of the game's redstone mechanics.
The green blocks act as relays when present, causing the target tile states to be updated according to the dust state, otherwise, they stay at their last state. The left version overrides the right.
The circled tile remains charged after power is removed, and activates the tile above it, unless explicitly depowered by other means.
The above scheme is simplified for practical use, but there are configurations that it can't describe.
