Hi hey, I have a problem with my redstone cobblestone generator. When I turn it on I can only use it for a define lenght of time and after that the pistons just stop working. So can anyone help me with this, and tell me if I'm doing something wrong? Thanks

Hello,

The TPS (ticks per second) may be affecting the piston's movement, so try using the ore gen when the TPS is high. You can check the TPS by holding down your 'tab' button on your keyboard and looking below all of the players' names.

Yea I'll try. I forgot to mention that pistons just start to smoke when they stop working xd, the redstone circuit is running and they are just smoking.

I've noticed when building my own, that redstone clocks doesn't function quite well therefore often turns off after a few pushes. I would recommend you tried using a hopper clock instead, which works for me.

Redstone on this server is just a bit buggy in general, and when you add low tps to the mix nothing quite works right.
