Minecraft is a first-person fighter/sandbox construction game created by Mojang AB.
well its about gosh darn time jeb....
Bloody right, I've been having to use mods for this since I started using redstone! Finally able to have a bridge and door that only opens during the day!
Why not just look at the sun?
I hope that's sarcasm...
The daylight detector turns on redstone and machines when the sun is out. Looks like it anyways.
I remember a friend once cleverly built a "daylight detector" involving a villager NPC that would run inside a building at night and activate a button to turn on lights for a town. (As villagers go indoors at night time.)
yer but this is more compacted and not easy to see for people making adventure maps (Eg. you could link it up to a command block to make it always night or day)
I did that too with four villagers to power my house's interior lighting(embedded in the ceiling, was very nice) and a fake Hydroelectric dam
The redstone updates were a colossal b*tch for my CPU. With this I can now kill the villagers and simplify the circuit
I thought that was what the Clock was for o_0
The clock doesn't turn on redstone when in light.
Why would anyone care about turning on redstone with the sun?
That's up to how sharp the users of it are. The most immediate use will most likely be for doors that are open only during the day (protection against monsters) and then the less obvious reasons will be the creativity of people. For atmosphere purposes you could have music that plays during the day and shuts off at night, or switches to different music when night comes. I'm sure there will be many great uses to come out of it.
automatic ceiling to farm. daylight by day, no monsters by night :P
Right well you go do that and I'm going to actually survive rather than worry about such things.
they need to make clocks mountable on walls
Great, I can finally replace that 5x5x5 bud switch with one convenient little block. I imagine this will be more reliable as well.

Another of the features announced at Minecon, the daylight detector.
