Hippoplatimus, years ago, made a mod for Minecraft that added these things called "pistons" to the game. The last proper version of this mod was made for Beta 1.6.6, before Mojang got in contact with the mod creator and decided to add the feature to the game.

I've made a port of these pistons from Beta 1.6.6 to Beta 1.7.3, allowing you to see side-by-side the different ways in which these pistons work, and allow you to exploit their differences to create amazing builds (like this one

Sorry for the random question, but how did you manage to get more than 30 fps on Minecraft Beta? (I can get around 60-120+ in more recent versions.)

@system128 In video settings there's a button labeled "Performance:" which then has a bit of text after it letting you know what performance setting you currently have enabled. By default this is set to balanced, which limits your framerate to roughly 60. However, there's also "Power Saver", which limits your game to 30 FPS, and Max FPS, which turns off the framerate limit. I recommend changing this setting to Max FPS if you haven't already.

If you're running MacOS that could easily be part of it, as Beta performs much worse on Macs than it does on Windows devices. Or, it could simply be that you're computer has a GPU/CPU combination that's not well optimized for performance in Beta.

Overall, the suggestions for improving performance in Beta are the same as they are for the more modern versions. Install OptiFine, and mess with the settings until you've got something that performs well.
