Weighted Pressure Plates are Blocks that were added in Update 0.13.0. Weighted Pressure Plates differ from regular Pressure Plates because a specific amount of entities standing on it is required to produce power.

Crafting

Usage

Opposed to ordinary Pressure Plates, which always gives a Redstone signal of 15, the output of a Weighted Pressure Plate will reflect the amount of Entities triggering it. The two variants of Pressure Plates differs in the triggering Entities.

Light

The "light" pressure plate is the gold pressure plate. Most Mobs alone can produce a signal when standing on it. Each entity on the Plate adds 1 to the signal strength. It requires 15 entities to emit a full Redstone Signal of 15.

Light Pressure Plates can also be activated by an Arrow or a Fishing Rod.

Heavy

The "heavy" pressure plate is the iron pressure plate. It will usually take more than one Entity alone to produce a signal. 11 Entities gives a Redstone signal of 1. It requires over 140 entities to emit a full strength Redstone signal of 15.

Multiple Arrows are needed to produce signal out of a Heavy Weighted Pressure Plate.

Trivia

  • Weighted Pressure Plates give out power for 0.5 of a second rather than 1.0 second.
  • When not activated, Weighted Pressure Plates will be 1/16th of a Block. However, when it's activated, it will be 1/32nd of a Block.
