The pipes work seamlessly and teleport the user to a different area. This idea is nothing short of genius and would work great in many adventure maps and creative worlds in Minecraft.
Players react as Minecraft Redditor creates Mario pipes using commands
The post begins with the OP showcasing the outside of his pipe creation. The pipes are supposed to replicate the ones found in the Mario games and are meant to teleport the player to a different area.
When players enter one of the OP's pipes, they will slowly float to the bottom. After the teleportation is done, players will rise to the top of the pipe, where they can safely exit into a completely new location.
The teleport function using Minecraft's Command Blocks is very seamless, and it's hard to tell when the player has actually been teleported.
The teleportation was so seamless that many players questioned how it actually worked. One Redditor also appreciated the levitation function that was necessary to rise out of the pipe after teleportation.
Another Minecraft Redditor had the ingenious idea to add sound when entering and leaving the pipe. Mario players will know exactly what sound will soon be added by the OP.
In this thread, the OP explains how he used command blocks to allow teleportation and levitation.
Judging by his explanation, this build seems quite easy to replicate for those who want to use it.
