How to make a Bank Vault in Minecraft!

[intro music] Welcome back to another how to build video, today we’re gonna be taking a look at how to build a bank vault this is going to involve a bunch of different redstone contraptions. We’re going to have large piston doors we’re gonna have security systems alarm systems and all that good stuff I think it’s going to be really interesting video, and I can’t wait to get started But obviously if you’re going to be building a bank vault you need to have some form of bank(duh) So I’ve been doing some building lately and this is what I’ve come up with. This is my rather lovely looking bank right here as you can see I’ve used a bunch of really expensive materials because you know what banks are like they love to show off that they’re holding all of your money and then if we take a look around the outside It’s quite a long building and that’s to make way for all of the redstone contraptions and things but the design itself is really really Simple, I mean we’ve got some quartz We’ve got some quartz pillars some stone slabs across the bottom and then some slabs up at the top right here And if we pop on inside, it should all look fairly familiar. We’ve got some seats We’ve got some adverts for savings accounts that have like nought point one percent interest rates We’ve got mortgages that have like ninety percent interest rate, and then we have this area right here Which is where the receptionist will stand and behind them they’ve got that door that you always want to be able to go through Because you have no idea what’s hiding behind it. Now that is where we against your doing most of our work in today’s episode We’re going to be building our bank vault back behind this thing, so I think we should crack on So as you can see we are now behind the door and as you can probably tell it’s not Particularly exciting at this point in time But we’re going to make it more exciting by dropping down into the ground I’ve already started my staircase right here And we’re going to taking it quite a bit further in fact this staircase is going to travel down by eight blocks so we’re going to take Out all of these blocks right here I’m going to chuck in all my stone brick stairs and basically mine my way down into the floor Until we have an area long enough And there we go our bank vault is now ready to be situated Underneath the ground. Obviously you’re not going to build the bank vault up on the surface Are you because then when it’s very vulnerable to attack someone can just mine through the wall or if we’re talking about real-life Crash a car into it and then steal all the money stupid only an idiot will do that So what we have to do is we’re going to decorate this staircase right here. Just to make it a tiny bit prettier now I’m going to be throwing in my stone slabs, and I think going to use some cobblestone as well to create this sort of pattern Yeah, I think that looks pretty cool. I mean it definitely works It looks very secure once again that cobblestone looks like it is holding up everything that’s going on here It looks like a solid entrance into the vault itself But of course the vault is actually going to be going in this area And we’re going to have some security Systems down at the bottom to prevent any old person just wandering in and taking all of the cash Now that all the decorations done. I’m just in the process of clearing out a rather large area This is a 14 by 4 area. It’s pretty massive, and it’s going to make way for the piston door that We’re going to be having in this space right here now the piston door that We’re going to be using is a 4 by 4 vault door that I designed in 2015 I do believe I’ve been building these for pretty much the entire history of my channel like my bread and butter And I absolutely love this design It’s super fast and also super compact, but it does use quite a few redstone resources So prepare yourselves for that. The first part is really nice and easy you want to go two blocks beneath your walkway right here Go one block back and place 4 blocks going across like this to match up with the length of your walkway there Then you want to place redstone dust on top of all those then your redstone torches right there And Redstone torches on the other side as well And then I’m going to place in sticky pistons Making their way across at this entire thing so all of these sticky pistons Should be fully extended and all of these are going to have the door blocks on the front of them Then we’re going to place half slabs off like this on either side with a block in the middle redstone dust running up like that on both sides And do the same thing on the other side as well up both sides of this design are exactly symmetrical so if I do something On one side chances are I’m going to do it on the other side as well Put redstone up like this and then right here We’re going to place a block with a redstone torch And then an immovable object right there Once again do the same thing on the other side now this might look just a little bit of strange But believe it or not this redstone is actually running into this block It’s just the texture of it shows it moving off in both directions I know that’s a little bit odd But that allows this design to work So the next thing that we got to do is place two blocks on either end And then chuck in repeaters and set both of them to 2 ticks This next bit is going to involve a bunch of Redstone torches So you wanna place a redstone torch right there, then we’re going to have a line of blocks Then a line of redstone torches a line of blocks a line of Redstone torches And then I line up blocks, just like that and on either side We’re going to chuck in regular pistons Then we’re going to need a sticky piston here sticky piston here and slime blocks on their faces now if you’re wondering what this redstone Circuit does that part in the middle is a double piston extender And that is going to retract and extend a set of blocks a bit like this Now these regular pistons are there to push these blocks back into place when they get retracted into the wall So it looks something a little bit like that because otherwise the wall would look really ugly and like this I hope that that makes sense, but anyway, we’re now going to repeat the same thing on the other side So you just want to place our redstone torch in the Middle once again Then we’re going to have our line of blocks our three Redstone Torches a line of blocks our three redstone torches once more then our line of locks and then at the regular pistons on either side And then your sticky piston the sticky piston, and then the slime blocks right there and for the final parts of our piston door We’re going to do the top half of our vault door So you want to chuck in a bunch of sticky pistons up at the top here and One thing that I just want to mention is I’m well aware of the fact that I say ‘chuck in’ way too often I Can’t seem to stop myself from saying it so let me know some alternatives down in the comment section I would be really happy to know some but anyway, we’re going to throw in a half slab right there and then a half slab above the top like this and All of those half slabs have to make their way across like that now the reason that these half slabs have to be half slabs Is so they don’t pug power these pistons because that would interfere with the redstone circuitry and we don’t really want that happening So then we want a repeater running off in this direction then we’re going to have a block that is running into we’re going to have another block down at the bottom here and then a block up like this With redstone dust right there, and that should power both of these pistons and also both of these pistons now We have to repeat the exact same thing on the other side that is redstone dust right there a slab a slab another slab there Redstone dust running around like this And then we need our repeater And that’s going to be going into our block with our block in the center, and then a block right here With redstone dust powering all of those and believe or not that is everything finished. We have done all of the work There’s no blocks on the inside of the door, but you should be able to see that when we flick the lever everything retracts so all of these blocks would be retracted all of these blocks would be retracted all of these blocks would be retracted and Then when flicked lever once again everything extends really nice and quickly, so let’s do decoration I guess it goes without saying that this part is personal preference But for me personally iron blocks are just the bee’s knees when it comes to making things look heavy-duty so the way that you fill in the blocks for the vault door is we’re going to throw in a ring of blocks out the back like this and then you place your two blocks in the center Just like this And then blocks go around like that making their way around and you should end up with something that looks like this So that looks like a very solid piston door and if we pop down to the bottom and sort of break our way through We should be able to see the full opening and closing sequence here goes Nice that looks awesome. So let’s fill in all of these blocks here we can fill in those blocks now one thing that I will just say is that these blocks here have to be Immovable object so that has to be an immovable object And that has to be an immovable object because otherwise if we pulled along by the slime blocks And that’s not very good, but that should be just about everything Awesome. The door is done that and the door is brilliant But as we established earlier on not much of a bank vault if anyone can just wander in so what we’re going to do is We’re going to create a small lever combination lock with a lever request system Now this may sound a little bit strange we’re going to have a lever a combination lock That’s a very simple system, but the button request basically means you have to lock in that combination So you put in your combination with the levers then you hit the button if you get the wrong combination Then something bad will happen to you. I’m going to design an alarm system, but you can do whatever you want with that I’m thinking TNT I’m thinking flamethrowers killing the player You guys get the idea so the first thing you got to do is create the lever combination lock just placing it three levers Next one another and then behind the middle lever I’m going to place in a redstone torch That’s going to be the only lever that. I want to be flicked down and on the rest of the levers I’m going to be running in Redstone dust just like that But here’s the deal what you need to do is you need to break this redstone right here You need to place a block up like this And I have some redstone right there, and then we’re going to take a redstone torch output from that one We’re going to be running it out into a repeater And this is where you have to make a decision if you want the button request system Then you’re going to have to just stop right here if you want to build a lever combination lock with no button request run this repeater into that block right there Simple as that For those of you who want to do it the harder and build the button request system first thing that I want to say Is nice work I quite like you I’m going to show you how to do it right now So the first thing you have to do is Place a block down on the bottom here With some redstone dust next to this button so when we hit this button obviously this redstone powers that is going to power this sticky piston Which is going to push a block in front of that repeater so far so good Then we want to take a block go across like this a repeater We’re going to run that into a redstone torch With a block up like this and the redstone torch right there and on the side of this block you want to place a redstone Torch and then a block with a repeater there And that is everything done that is your button request system this redstone torch is going to be the output Which is going to travel off and do something bad to the player if they get it wrong right now We’re going to use a dropper. Just to test it so let’s give this thing a go what we have to do is currently we have the wrong combination when we hit the button as You had just then the dropper fired which means that something would have happened that Redstone is triggered but if you put in the correct combination hit the button We don’t get any dropper noise Which is good that means we can run the output from this into our piston door It will only activate if we have the correct combination and if you don’t have the right combination, then it will do something bad I’m going to show you how to make an alarm. The reason I quite like the alarm is because number one Banks Tend to use alarms They don’t just blow up or set fire to the person that’s trying to Rob the bank even though I think that would probably stop people from trying to Rob Banks I certainly wouldn’t if that was the case, but more importantly it uses some nice redstone And I like showing you how to do nice Redstone So we’re going to create a pulce extender first and the way that we’re going to do that is by running two comparators across like This block right there and redstone So that’s all done then we’re going to take a repeater output from that one and run it off into this Comparator Redstone clock that we’re going to chuck in right here, so we need a comparator Set it into subtract mode and then redstone dust running out like that We’re going to take the redstone output from that and sort of snake it round like that with Redstone dust on top of all of those Some dirt down at the bottom and then some note blocks, and you can set your notes now I’m going to go super high-pitched here because alarms generally are high-pitched and horrible for the ears Let’s just do all of that And it can be totally out of tune the more out of tune it is the better you want this Be a horrible sound so I would say that’s good enough now. Let’s give it a go Let’s see what happens when we get the incorrect combination, so this is wrong Awesome. Well, that’s just perfect It’s a horrible noise. I’m just glad that my volume is low right now We just have to connect up our piston door to this mess of a redstone circuit, so the redstone output for this thing is From this repeater here, and it’s going to travel through this piston’s block extension So you want to place a sticky piston facing upwards with a block on its face to create a monostable circuit And then a repeater Running out into a sticky piston facing across like this with a redstone block in its face to turn that monostable circuit into a t flip-flop Then we want to place some redstone dust just going across like this And we’re going to run it into that block with a repeater Running into the bottom of the circuitry of the door, and that should be everything completed so currently our door is closed We chuck in the wrong combination We get the horrendous alarm, but if we get the correct combination then the door will open and we don’t get any alarm Fantastic it’s actually working okay, so we can fill in these books right here We are now done that for this side of the vault. Now we need to build the bank vault itself I’ve been busy mining in MCedit I have cleared out this area right here. Now this space is eight blocks wide it Is six blocks tall going up to the top right here And it is one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine blocks long right there So now I’m going to do is I’m going to start throwing in all of the blocks We’re going to have iron blocks for the flooring because obviously that’s like quite a solid choice as we mentioned earlier on iron blocks in real life I mean, you’re not going to be punching through that with your fist and we’re going to fill in all of the walls as well with iron blocks and once all of that is done We will start building the bits for the vault itself. So here is the bank vault we have got a bunch of iron blocks It’s all looking very solid we’ve got chests in place. Which could store bunches of diamonds or money I guess emeralds would probably be money in Minecraft We’ve got some lamps up at the top The only thing that I would say could make this look tiny bit more legit is to throw in some trapdoors on Either side just like that then drop down to the bottom and power all of these blocks either using redstone Is or by using levers that’s probably what I would consider doing because it looks pretty cool. Don’t worry We’re not quite done with the redstone yet. We’ve still got a bunch of things left to do, but there we go It looks like all of the chests are being held in place by trapdoors So if you do want to do it, that’s how that you do that but the next thing that we’ve got to do is we’ve got to punch out these books right here, and Place some blocks behind them just like that because we’re going to be creating a laser security system now I don’t know if banks actually use lasers I like to think that they use lasers to protect their things highly doubt it But I like to think that they do so we’re going to be using some trip wires Running right the way across the length of the room the trip wires are in place string It is making its way across the chest these are our laser systems. It’s not quite as cool. Okay? It’s not quite as cool as an actual banks laser systems which I’m imagining in my head a bit like something from James Bond But it’s definitely going to do the trick so behind each one of these blocks We’re going to place in some redstone, and that’s going to meander its way around here And basically make its way across into this area once again now. We’re going to be adding another part to this circuit We’re going to be placing in a sticky piston And then a block right here and redstone running across like that with a repeater And then some more redstone That runs into that block if the piston is extended then we’re going to take a repeater output and that is going to go across Like this and basically go into our pulse extender Wherever you really want it to so I’m going to place another repeater And then some redstone up right there Now the reason that that’s important is because we do not want the alarm system to go off Every time someone enter the bank vault okay, that’s a really bad idea because right now. We’ve got in legitimately We’ve entered in the correct code. We’re meant to be in the bank vault which means that the alarms They don’t go off okay absolutely nothing goes off however if we were to head outside We close the door like this, and then we flick this leaver. We have the wrong combination, okay the wrong combination has been submitted We hit this button the alarm is going off, and we still decide hey, I don’t care about alarms and things like that I’m just going to break through if we break through and trigger one of these as you can see the alarm system is fully functional so the alarms in the inside will only activate if someone is in there Isn’t meant to be in there I think that’s pretty cool So we have a guys we have now created a fully functional bank vault system We’ve got a secure and large piston door and also some alarm systems and lasers and stuff like that I’m extremely happy with it And if you do want to check out this world in a little bit more detail then of course there will be a world download Down in the description chuck it into your Minecraft world saves folder and have a bit of fun But unfortunately ladies and gents at that is all I’ve got time for today Let me know down the comment section what you want me to show you how to build next But if you have enjoyed this video be sure to hit that like button if you really loved it, then make sure to subscribe But thanks for watching guys. this has been Mumbo, and I’m out. I’ll see you later

  1. Old video I know, but you just confessed (indirectly) to being a bank robber! LOL.😉

    Long term haitus from watching hermitcraft, (18 months), now catching up.👍❤️

  2. By the way this doesn’t work at all on Xbox and I really don’t know why I think it is just because different Red stone mechanics idk

  3. an idea for the lever system system. if the person enters the wrong combination and hit the button either the button will let you pass or it will activate a sticky piston which pulls the block underneath the player and leads to a pressure plate which activates the command block to kill the player instantly.

  4. Is the combination changeable because if I made this in a multiplayer world with other people who have watched this video, then that's no good now is it?

  5. This is probably the first time I made a negative comment on Youtube. This video wasted my time completely, the dimensions where not clear and i ended up having to break through my base just to make the redstone work. I just wanted the vault door and there's no way to activate it without screwing everything up. Please be more clear on your videos, thanks.

  6. I built this, even added some simple redstone doors to open/close from inside, and outside of it has bench to hide redstone. Btw very cool video and tutorial.

  7. Mumbo: makes impossible redstone contraption all to guard a bank made of iron blocks


    grabs iron blocks and runs away

  8. I’ve manage to get the Doors open but the sticky piston isn’t pulling the red stone block back do u know why or how to fix it

  9. I know this is old and I have mine built exactly the same. However, for some reason, my alarm ALWAYS goes off. Even if the combination is correct.

  10. Lol I just spent an hour attempting go build this thing and then I realized it doesn’t work on Minecraft PE 😂😂 no hate towards mumbo though

  11. I built the whole thing but you didn’t say where to put anything so thank you for helping me waste 30 mins of my day

  12. In Minecraft memes people are saying that your building skills are confusing but if people say that I would have to agree but if I want to know how to build a bunker I’m watching the right person’s video

  13. I want to design an alarm system that when tripped drops named zombies with diamond swords and armor and then drop sand in the way of escape so that it's extra hard to escape.

  14. Instead of creating a complicated system with a piston for your combination you can just connect both the outputs to an AND GATE
