Fun fact I've discovered in my playing with TNT cannons, cake works best as a shot holder for the longest shots. It's taller than a slab, but shorter than a ladder. That, along with a triple decker (3x7, I think) was tossing TNT far enough that I had to start flying when I lit it to be able to see the impact. It went past the edge of the rendered chunks.

The problem we had with TNT was that it would blow before it ever hit the ground. That is why we switched to shooting sand. Then we ran into the problem of the sand going so far that we never could find it.

Nah, use cake. I was testing different holders to see what would get the shot on the ground before it blew up, cake seemed to work. Granted, you have to mess with the timing so the shot just hits the cake before the charge goes, which means you'd better get pretty good at building TNT cannons (or be good at guessing how many ticks of delay you need).

You'll have to show me sometime, because I highly doubt cake would still allow us to get the distance we were getting and still have it blow up. It wasn't an issue of it hitting the ground. It was an issue of the TNT blowing in the air because it was trying to fly so far.

Edit: if the tnt had a long enough fuse, we would have been hitting well over a few hundred blocks far.

You have to setup a piston that pushes the sand at just the right time. You can only shoot falling sand.

I'll jump on to the CSP map I was doing that on and count off the distance between craters (I can only assume I stopped launching because I ****ed up the cannon) and report back.

Edit: 217 blocks from the cake to the center of the farthest crater. 3 high and 5 long, and it could have used a compression charge (not sure that actually did anything). I blew it up good at some point, almost none of the redstone on the top layer is intact. May have actually been a 5x4, not sure how bad I blew it up.

Sounds impressive. So does the cake make it fly really low but faster than usual?

I'm mean to people who don't use common sense when on a forum. Sorry.



Also, cww. I just did a test with a standard tnt cannon, with 7 tnt powering it. Only one level. Tried it with cake and slab. Cake at its furthest shot was 9 blocks shorter than where the slab was getting it. The slab seemed to be more consistent as well, hitting in the same spot everytime (5 shots).

The cake hit way shorter (10 blocks) than its furthest which it only hit once.

I think it might be the way that you are making your cannon, and not the cake. Take a screen shot and post it.

Edit: Ok, with more testing, it seems that cake does work better (only by a few blocks in my testing) when you make a shorter (5 tnt) cannon. When you make a longer (7 tnt) slabs work better.

I switched and shot sand. Hit 365 blocks without really trying. If I get more free time I might try and clean up the cannon and get it shooting further.
