Iron Golem Murder Machine

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Simple Iron Golem murder machine.

How it works:


This golem has committed a terrible crime and god-fearing republicans agree that the golem must be executed.


We escort the condemned to the execution chamber.


We flip the safety lever locking the condemned in the execution chamber while we can inspect the execution chamber to ensure the condemned has not brought any of the god-fearing citizens with them.


We press the execution button...


... and the condemned is sent down the execution tunnel to their state-prescribed death. God bless the Republic!

A Closer look at the internals


The green circuit is controlled by the safety lever and it controls two sticky pistons that move the diorite safety blocks into place.


Additionally, it locks the red circuit live, using a redstone torch, until it is switched, priming the chamber. While this will keep the condemned from escaping, a future design improvement could add upper safety rails to prevent god-fearing citizens from entering the execution chamber while the chamber is primed.

Also visible in the above picture is the logic in the red circuit which is controlled by the execution button and controls four sticky pistons that move the granite blocks and drop the condemned into the execution tunnel. The redstone torch on the acacia log keeps the red circuit live until the execution button is pressed. The repeater visible in the picture allows the redstone signal to wrap around the execution chamber.


This is the maximum signal length for redstone, so the chamber will not tolerate a larger size without a redesign of the red circuit.

I like it.

Our spawn has a serious abundance of Golems, we might need one of these... for the criminal ones of course.

I have built something like this. I sealed all the villagers into their homes one night and began to funnel iron golems into a pit of despair.
