    Guess this could use it's own thread now. Anyone know a good tutorial for minecarts? I want to have a system that somehow powers itself so that I can have a minecart highway. I can't find that one where the guy had a system where you could step on the panel and call a cart, could someone link it?

    Well if you want a good minecrart system, you'll want to make boosters.

    (you know what a booster is?)

    Well if you do, Then use them, they are WAY better than coal powered ones.

    It's really good at telling you how to make them.

    Boosters are not necessarily better than powered carts. Boosters are good if you want to send people vast distances at high speed, but if you want to send storage carts (as you would in a lengthy mineshaft with an extended mining expedition) then coal-powered carts are your best bet, assuming you have no steep slopes. Boosters DO NOT work very well with "empty" (storage) carts at all.

    I wish there were minecart gates or something similiar
    This way I wouldn't activate my booster on accident all the time.

    Hate that powered carts can't push my fat ass up hill.

    The Minecraft wiki actually has some good info on building minecart tracks and boosters and things like that.

    I find this booster to be the most effective in multiplayer, and it works two-ways and resets itself too:
