Redstone Ore spawns naturally in the Pigman's Den, where it can be mined and collected by the player. Normally, it drops a number of redstone pieces and grants +7 Mining XP. However, mining it this way attracts Pigman to attack the player, making it inconvenient to collect. The player can collect the Redstone Ore directly with a Silk Touch pickaxe. Although this does not grant Mining XP or factor the Spelunker perk into effect (always dropping one), Pigmen do not appear to be aggravated at players who mine Redstone Ore in this way.
Redstone is also an rare drop from Witches, although this does not gain progress in the Redstone Collection.
Redstone functions similar to how it does within Vanilla Minecraft, although certain items, such as Pistons, are inoperable, and there is a limit to the amount of active Redstone a player can have on their Private Island. This limit is displayed on the side scoreboard, but only when any amount of Redstone is being used, and it disappears when none is being used.
